Caturday Art: Remembering England's Rose

It's impossible to believe that 17 years have gone by since that awful Saturday night Americans watched the news of Princess Diana's death in a Paris car crash. (Because of the time difference, the British people didn't know the tragic news until morning.) I remember that weekend so well because on Sunday I had tickets to a concert in New York state that I had been looking forward to for months. I never spent too much time thinking about car accidents but I found myself petrified that day at the thoughts of a long road trip.

Our artwork today is in honor of England's Rose, Princess Diana...

  1. The woman remembers she was watching a movie with her then fiance on video and it ended and they had the regular television with the news about the "Late Princess Diana"... and it was terribly shocking.

  9. Very hard to believe it's been so long. I live in the UK and I did hear the news on TV at around midnight here. I was watching some movie on TV and it was interrupted to give us the breaking news that she had been involved in a car crash. I was shocked but hoped she'd pull through, but then the news broke that she had died. Poor Diana. She was so young too.

    That's a lovely photo and thanks for including it in our Caturday Art hop :)
