I fell in love with Diana today. After watching this documentary which gave me only a glimpse of her amazing life she became my role model. A simple and extremely down to earth woman who looks so fragile and sincere it's scary managed to take control of her life in the toughest possible circumstances. She "stood up" to the whole royal family and their (far too) ancient traditions because she would not let it run her life for her. She was also far to human to let her two sons fall into the same mess and tried desperately (and perhaps managed) to show them the life beyond those tall palace walls. Her immense femininity and unbelievable natural maternal care made her on of the most beautiful women I ever saw and her love for the whole world lives on. A woman who defied and overcame stupid rules and limitations and unintentionally made a fool out of the "royal" family along the way and a woman who opened the eyes of the world as well. Sounds like a fairly tale, right. In the real world the fairy tale ended in Diana's very tragic death far before she could accomplish all of her goals and dreams. She opened my eyes a bit more and I hope I can someday be half as proud of myself as she should have been of herself.
