". . . the extraordinary – and critical – response to the death of their troubled daughter-in-law, Diana; . . . "

To quote Mark Steyn in Passing Parade (Mark Steyn Book Store):

". . . aggressive empathy. Their message to their Sovereign was in essence: If you can't come out and feel our pain, we'll come in and give you some of your own to feel. Through a spokesman, the Queen protested to the British people that she was not indifferent to their grief."

Hang on: She's not indifferent to their grief? The Queen, who had know Diana Spencer since was a little girl, has to prove that she grieves as much as people who have never met her?"

Diana was a publicity-addicted tramp.

Diana may have been one of those most loved by those who knew her least.
