Dear Jo: Honour Her Memory; Diana Memorial Letters Special


Dipple, Jo, The Mirror (London, England)


TENS of thousands of Mirror readers backed our campaign for a permanent memorial to Princess Diana. And hundreds of you wrote to complain when the Palace said it would not pay for one. Here is a selection your letters on the subject - Jo.

WE have waited so long for a newspaper to fight for a memorial to Diana.

I think it suits the Royal Family to think we will all forget her but the Princess did so much in her very short life that she must be remembered now.

What are the royals so scared of? People power is what is needed and we demand a memorial now.

WELL done on your campaign to get a memorial to Diana. I used to be a big fan of the Royal Family but now I wouldn't cross the road to talk to them.

The Queen thinks she has a God-given right to disregard the wishes of her subjects. And you just have to look at Charles and his mistress to see what a wonderful job she did as a mother.

I FULLY endorse the comments made in The Mirror about a memorial for Diana.

It is disgraceful there are no memorials to her. My family and I will never forget her and hope that the "powers that be" take note of your campaign.

Beverley Lawson via e-mail@freeserve.co.ukTHERE must be a memorial for Diana. It is an absolute disgrace that there is nothing permanent in her honour.

THE Queen says the public have to pay for a memorial to Diana as she will not. Wouldn't she be spending our tax money even if she did pay for a fitting tribute?

N Davies, Pontypool

THE Royal Family says it does not build statues. But Queen Victoria had a memorial built for her husband Albert.

The committee responsible for finding a fitting tribute to Diana have the answer in their hands. Build a statue. Public demand is evident.

GOOD on you for campaigning to have a memorial built for Diana.

She gave the Queen two beautiful grandsons so why can't the Queen unveil a fitting tribute to her?

PLEASE don't give up on your campaign to have a memorial built for Diana.

When the royals said they couldn't pay I thought of all the Mirror readers who would. You will get nothing out of a rich person but the poor will give everything they have.

I QUITE agree with The Mirror about a memorial to Diana - or else she will be too soon forgotten.

I SUPPORT The Mirror's campaign for a memorial to Princess Diana, but a statue is not appropriate.

Diana was a real woman so full of life and a statue is too static and limited for her memory. …
