Today is my 50th birthday and I remembered exactly where I was and how I found out about Princess Diana's death 12 years ago. RIP.
I was spending the weekend in London. On the Monday we went to Kensington Palace. The mood was astonishing in the depth of the grief, the sense of loss and in the idea of togetherness of everyone who was there.
Thank you both for sharing your memories, and Lynn – happy birthday.
I was volunteering for another royalty site when Diana died, and the outpouring of grief was staggering. She was loved by a lot of people, and it is sad that she's not still here.
