1997 marks the 10 year anniversary of several famous people's deaths: Verace, Chris Farley, Michael Hutchence, and Princess Diana. As her son's get ready to stage a concert in her memory, where were you when you heard the news that Princess Diana died?

It was a Sunday morning, and I was in the kitchen, having just put the radio on. I heard the news, and I shuddered quite strongly with the shock. I was devastated and remained so for about a fortnight. Slowly, I recovered, but I'll never forget how I felt. It was an awful time.

I didn't hear about it until 2 days after it happened. I was camping in the wilderness that weekend and I didn't have any idea until I got home. I recently saw the movie "The Queen" which painted a behind-the-scenes portrait of those few days after the accident. It was a wonderful movie - if you haven't seen it yet I highly recommend it!

I think I was at home. I was little so I don't remember it much. It was sad though. What a society we have become. People around the world are crying over a person they never even knew. What is up with that?

I was in Paris, and couldn't believe the news. A few days after, I actually went to London (it was a planned trip) and stayed with my aunt who lived by the palace or castle (whatever it's called it's huge...) where Diana was supposed to be living. There was what seemed to be an endless sea of flowers, messages...gifs...it was unbelievable. And so many people, it was very sad...She really was loved by people. It is just a sad story.
