Eighth anniversary of death of Princess Diana remembered

Britain's royal family planned no special observances Wednesday on the eighth anniversary of the death of Princess Diana, but dedicated fans gathered at Kensington Palace to mourn her death.

Her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, "will be going about their business as normal," said a spokesman at Clarence House, Prince Charles' official residence. The spokesman declined to be identified, in keeping with royal policy.

Outside Kensington Palace, Diana's home after her divorce from Prince Charles, bouquets of roses, carnations and lilies were placed on the fence by her fans. The numbers this year were in the dozens, in contrast to the mounds of flowers left in the days after Diana's death.

Julie Cain, 42, from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, spent the night in a London park waiting to pay her respects.

"We camped out overnight and we do it every year because we have to try to keep Diana's memory alive," said Cain. "There's certain people within a certain family that just want to eradicate her from history. As long as I've got breath in my body I'll be coming here."

Diana died in a car crash in Paris in 1997 along with boyfriend Dodi Fayed and chauffeur Henri Paul. The only survivor was Diana's bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones, who was badly hurt.

Charles last year married the former Camilla Parker Bowles _ the woman the princess had blamed for the failure of the marriage.

"Every year is hard but it's been more so this year because Charles married. I can't even say her name," Cain said.

An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
