Dear Mitch,

Like everyone else in the world, I’ve been inundated with Princess Di newspaper, radio and TV stories 20 years after her tragic death. I was only 10 when she died and it came as a huge shock to me then. My dad said it was like his experience when Elvis died and my grandmother said she felt the same sorrow when JFK was assassinated.

After watching, listening and reading so much in the last three months, I’m a little confused, to be honest. I had held Princess Di in awe but now after learning so much over these many weeks, I’m not so sure. She almost brought down the British Monarchy. She manipulated the press and in turn, was manipulated back. She was hounded by them to her wasteful death. I have no doubt she was a loving mum to two beautiful boys and taken far too early, I’m simply confused now as to whether her legacy was a good one or a confused semi contrived one. How does the panel see Princess Di’s legacy 20 years after her tragic passing?

Samantha, West Torrens, SA
