20 years on and it still hurts like Hell :'(
on 22 June 2017
20 years since Di passed away this year - I find that hard to believe! It still hurts. I was only 9 back in 1997 when I heard the news on the radio and even though I knew vaguely who she was, I didn't realise the sheer gravity of the situation until I was a good bit older. 20 years on, I decided to download this book to my Kindle Paperwhite and read the Butlers version of events of her life.
It's quite a fascinating insight to the Royal Family, not just Di, but the Queen, Charles, and the Boys who Burrell worked for during his time at butler.
It's a very good read, but it's also heartbreaking to read parts and even 20 years on after Dianas death, it's hard to escape the fact she died in a car crash. Why is it always the good die so young?!! She had so much love to give, a big heart who only wanted to do good...she just wanted a normal life. Someone to love her back. Anyone! She was nothing more than a convenient brood mare to the Royal Family and then thrown to the side like rubbish. Atrocious. She went on the hunt for love and was killed as a result.
A great, but melancholic read at the same time. 5 stars from me. xxx
