1 July 2016 Happy Birthday to an English Rose….Lady Diana, Princess of Whales would have been 55 years old today

I drew this in Sept 1997 - like much of the world, I was sad for a long time after she died.

Why was I so sad she died?  I was sad because she was so imperfect and broken.  She made mistakes.  Despite all her beauty, grace, love, empathy and compassion she was a flawed human being just like the rest of us and I loved her for it.  I can remember having a dream about her after she died.  The main thing I remember about it was seeing her jump into a swimming pool and something about her “face being in the tea towels”….that infamous phrase.   I can remember doing a digital signing of the book of condolences for William and Harry after her death.  I think she would be so proud of her boys and would have been an awesome Grandmother!  Wherever and whenever she is now, I’m sure she is happy and certainly loved.  It’s all just a sheer curtain between here and there.

  1. I was inexplicably affected by her death, too, Jackie. Yes, I think she would be proud of her boys. I also think she would be grateful to their father. xoM
