Remembering Diana on her 11th death anniversary

Princess Diana’s family is solemnly marking the 11th anniversary of her death Sunday, with her younger son.
The bishop of London used his sermon, earlier in the morning, at a memorial service to call for an end to the sniping between Diana’s fans and detractors, and a priest who would led an annual remembrance said it may now be time to let go. “To lose a parent so suddenly at such a young age, as others have experienced, is indescribably shocking and sad,” Prince Harry once said.
“It was an event which changed our lives forever, as it must have done for everyone who lost someone that night,” said Harry, who was 12 when Diana died. “But what is far more important to us now and into the future is that we remember our mother as she would wish to be remembered, as she was: fun-loving, generous, down to earth and entirely genuine,” he said.
Diana’s admirers, many of them suspicious of the cause of her death and resentful of Prince Charles, are busy to tie bouquets, poems and portraits to the gates of her former home.
It is one more day for dredging up questions about how Diana came to die in a car crash in Paris with her boyfriend, Dodi Fayed, and for a newspaper that once published an essay explaining “why we were right to weep for Diana.” For Harry and his older brother, Prince William, it is a simple tribute to an adored mother.
“To us, just two loving children, she was quite simply the best mother in the world,” Harry said. “When she was alive, we completely took for granted her unrivaled love of life, laughter, fun and folly.
