What Princess Diana Meant to Me
The death of Princess Diana 20 years ago is a “John F. Kennedy” moment for me; meaning I’ll always remember where I was when I learned that Princess Diana had died in a car crash in Paris. I was 12, the same age as Prince Harry, and it was almost like learning my own mother had died. To me, Princess Diana and my mother will always be inextricably linked. My mother adored Diana and, like many women, tried to emulate her style and haircut. But their link is way deeper to me because they were both beautiful, loving, kind, fun and graceful. So now whenever I see pictures of Diana, I always think of my own mother.
