Not part of my spam but a real treat none the less!
A USA news report from 1980 about Diana being a possible future princess. It has some rare footage of Diana wearing a purple top and looking quite smart.
(There is also a nice report about Walt Disney after that one which is quite interesting.)
Lady Diana at Lord Mountbatten’s home in 1981 before the wedding.
This was when people really started to warm to her, she held babies, giggled and got down to her knees to speak to children. Something no royal had ever done before.
Kate and The Press - How Her Life Will Change Forever
A surprisingly somber look at how Kate’s life will change (and not necessarily for the better) it’s draws many comparisons to Diana which is fairly common for any Kate documentary. This is still a very much PR piece with a heavy dose of sugar, but it’s the only documentary on William and Kate I can actually sit through. (Even though there is a lot of repeated points)
Here’s the link if the video doesn’t work.
You have to download veoh video player software in order to view the documentary in full.
It might seem strange that I have so many documentaries on Kate and William given that I don’t really like them that much. But in the wake of the engagement last year I wanted to record all the documentaries I could so in 5 years time I could compare the out look of the royals reporters. I do that with Charles and Diana documentaries, the difference between 1980s docs to 1990s docs is mind blowing.
But I was thinking, I may not like Kate but I know there are lots of people on tumblr who do and they may not have access to as many documentaries on Kate where they live (the USA being the main example) So there is no sense in keeping these documentaries in my own collection when other people could be enjoying them.
So in the next few days I shall be uploading a number of documentaries on Kate and William on my veoh. http://www.veoh.com/users/princessdianaislove
These documentaries will include
“Kate and The press - How her life will change forever”
“William and Kate the story so far”
“William and Kate a Royal love story”
“William and Kate” - a documentary from 2009
I completely agree with you here.
It’s clear that William has some seriously issues in regards to his mother. I mean take the engagement interview when the interviewer asked about the ring William said
It’s my mother’s engagement ring so I thought it was quite nice because obviously she’s not going to be around to share any of the fun and excitement of it all - this was my way of keeping her close to it all.
So basically he’s saying that Kate is carrying round the memory of your mother, but at the same time you don’t want people to compare her to your mother. That’s logical thinking.
But you know, that on it’s own wouldn’t be so bad. But the wedding took place in Westminster Abby the same place his mother funeral took place AND the music ( Guide me, O Thou Great Redeemer) Kate entered the Abby was the same music used as Diana’s coffin was carried out of the Abby and Kate is wearing Diana’s ring.
* Shudders!* talk about creepy.
William still has not gotten over his mother death and like you said has not grown up. I think mainly due to the Middletons and palace staff indulging his every whim.
Man - “What’s so special about them?”
Woman - “They claim to be normal”
OMG, can you imagine if Kate did lose that ring.
Again another reference to England’s problems at the time of the wedding.
