Princess Diana - 10 years on

OK, so where were you when you heard the terrible news? At home, abroad, at sea?

How did you take it? Many in the UK probably suffered a profound sense of shock. A neighbour of mine was in tears and needed comforting.

As for me, I heard the news at 37,000 feet coming back from Malaga.

I was living in Berlin, and as I worked nights I slept through the news. The following night (which I had free) everyone kept asking me what I thought about Diana (because I'm Welsh), which I thought was some kind of wind-up, what with me being a Welsh republican and Diana being an English Princess of Wales. My replies to these questions later caused me some embarassment when I discovered exactly why she had become the topic of conversation that evening.
