I have nothing against Princess Di. I am american by the way but why is she so beloved? Basically she was known for her supposed beauty ( I thought she was goodlooking not beautiful though) her nose was to long. Didn't a british photographer say she wasn't a great beauty? She was a style icon.She came from an affluent family and married a prince. She knew Charles did not love her days before her wedding but she was in in to be a royal for all the prestige. She gave to charities but princess Anne is known for working for charities more than Diana did. Michael Jackson's death is more important in my opinion. He was 1 of 9 children who grew up dirt poor in Gary, Indiana. His father worked in the steel mill. MJ made it on phenomenal talent in singing, dancing, writing some of his songs and he revolutionized the music industry with Thriller biggest selling album ever. He broke racial barriers and amazing artistry through music video and he truly was a humanitarian. He wrote we are the world with Lionel Ritchie for starving people in Africa. Guinness book of world records list him as the entertainer who has given the most to charities ever. He did have a tragic life but so did Diana. MJ was found not guilty of chargest against him in the child molestation case. No evidence exist he did it. So my question is why is Diana so great as compared to Michael? Her looks? Mike was better looking than her in the 80's.

I agree! As I was channel surfing thre was a documentary on this woman. She was an aristocratic princess who did some charity work. It's well known princess anne did as much for charity as diana. Diana was spoiled and never knew what real life was like. As a guy I find her average looking. Her nose is huge! As for Michael Jakcson itleast he had talent. He deserved the wealth and fame where Diana was just a stupid princess. I believe royalty is stupid. Thank gosh I live in America. What really pissed me off is when the belived mothere teresa died she hardly got any coverage because of this bitch. Mother Teresa was actually a saint who purposely lived in poverty and helped the poor and sick while Diana was living it up. Diana was also a slut. So much for going to Heaven.

It is hard to imagine that Princess Diana is no longer mentioned much at all in the magazines. Here in Australia she was always on the covers of magazines and I imagine that the editors had a hard time coming up with stories about her. I think in future there will be books about her because there will be money to be made from a new generation who have barely heard of her. And therefore she will not be seen to be overrated.

I have often wondered if a famous newspaper owner wanted to give Diana a certain amount of power so that she could rebel against the British Royal Family so he pushed her repeatedly to the public. He might have done this because he believed in a meritocracy and he might have had ideas that once the royals were gone, he and his family could step in their shoes. Does that seem farfetched? Who knows?

I completely agree. Average looking woman (with all that makeup and jewelry on). Her personality was not magnetic but overly proper. She did have a cause (which I like to believe was genuine) but she did admit to having extramarital affairs (she should be judged independently of Charles) and is thus no role model. But media loved her so she became extremely overrated.
