    Queen Elizabeth II, 91, is the longest reigning monarch and allegedly held a meeting as recently as two weeks ago to begin the process. Her Majesty is said to have decided that if she is still on the throne at the age of 95 then she will request the Regency Act to come into force. The Regency Act would make Charles a Prince Regent and a King in all but name. Under the Act, the Queen would remain head of state but would have reduced duties without abdicating the throne. [snip]

    Two decades ago today - Saturday August 30th 1997 - the ex-wife of the heir to the throne flew in to Paris with her new Egyptian boyfriend after a Mediterranean holiday on his yacht. They dined at his dad's showpiece, the Ritz, and shortly after midnight left via the rear entrance and got into a Mercedes driven by the hotel's deputy head of security. He was drunk, and in the underpass at the Place d'Alma he lost control of the car. Diana, Princess of Wales was pronounced dead at 4am on Sunday August 31st. She was 36. The clip below...

    A translucent orange gem engraved with an image of a goddess of hunting has been found near a mausoleum built by Herod the Great, the king of Judea who ruled not long before the time of Jesus. The carnelian gem shows the goddess Diana (or her Greek equivalent, Artemis) with a sumptuously detailed hairstyle and wearing a sleeveless dress, with a quiver behind her left shoulder and the end of a bow protruding from her right shoulder. Both Diana and Artemis were goddesses of hunting and childbirth. An iron ring that may have held the gem was found nearby. Researchers...

    Princess Diana died after attempts to frighten her into dumping Dodi al Fayed and ending her anti-establishment activities went horribly wrong, a leading lawyer has claimed. Michael Mansfield claimed he was sure Diana's 'killers' had no intention of ending her life in a Paris tunnel in August 1997 and simply wanted to scare her. But he claimed the operation to torpedo her relationship with Dodi, and silence her planned criticism of the British government over foreign arms sales, backfired spectacularly.

    The latest version of the story of Princess Diana’s tragic death goes something like this: 23 minutes past midnight on the evening of Aug. 31, 1997—just after the black Mercedes that was carrying Diana and her lover, Dodi Fayed, entered Paris’s winding Place de l’Alma tunnel—a black motorbike and two cars (one dark and one white) entered the underpass in a tight formation. The white car approached and quickly brushed the side of the Mercedes, nudging it off kilter and allowing the motorbike to surge ahead. Then a great flash of light (likely a strobe light)—followed by a thunderous slam,...

    LONDON – British police say they are examining newly received information relating to the deaths of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed, and that officers are assessing the information's "relevance and credibility."

The force stressed that it was not reopening the investigation into the 1997 deaths of Diana and Fayed, who were killed in a car crash in Paris. Sky News reported that an unnamed source said the new information...

    Click on this 36 second YouTube video. During the discussion, Congresswoman Diana Degette (D-CO), revealed how little she really understands about the guns she (and other Democrats) want to regulate out of existence. She actually said, about high capacity magazines"If you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time, because THE BULLETS WILL HAVE BEEN SHOT, AND THERE WON'T BE ANY MORE AVAILABLE!"- Then, listen for the laughter in the audience. Is she really that ignorant,or does she think WE are?

    The engagement ring given to Kate Middleton by her fiancé, Prince William, belonged to his mother, Princess Diana. The ring is the stunning 18 carat blue sapphire and diamond ring his father, the Prince of Wales , gave his mother in February of 1981. In an interview with Fox News, Diana’s former butler Paul Burrell said the ring will be introduced to a new generation through Kate Middleton. "This was my way of making sure that my mother didn't miss out on today," William said as the couple posed for photographers inside St. James's Palace. The wedding is set to...

    UK Daily Telegraph ^ | 31 Aug 2010
    When Diana, the 'People's Princess' died, Tony Blair felt a duty to 'protect the monarchy from itself'. Diana, Princess of Wales was down to earth, charming and intelligent, but also stubborn and prone to be over-emotional, says Mr Blair. He recalls meeting the Princess at Chequers in July 1997, the month before she died, saying he felt an uneasiness about her relationship with Dodi Fayed but could not put his finger on why. He says she did not appreciate him broaching the subject with her. “We were both, in our own way, manipulators” — good at grasping the feelings of...

    Several Republican conservative fundraisers have approached Washington County Commissioner Diana Irey to ask her to consider a primary run against Sen. Arlen Specter. Sources confirm they have offered to help her raise money. One strategist said of the close-door meeting the conservative group was particularly impressed that when Irey went up against Rep. Jack Murtha, D-Johnstown, in the 2006 midterm primaries, she was able to raise between $300 to $400K online.

    The Princess Diana Memorial Fund has given almost £2million to the Bill Clinton Foundation - even though the former US President betrayed a promise he made to Diana to ban landmines. The news has shocked the Princess’s many supporters who still remember how, despite his pledge, Mr Clinton ultimately bowed to Pentagon pressure and refused to sign a treaty forbidding use of the weapons. The US still uses landmines in hotspots such as the demilitarised zone between North and South Korea. Under the Clinton administration, American agents also bugged Diana’s phone calls when she stayed with her friend Lucia Fletcher...
