Diana, Grace and Astrid

This is quite a moving clip of Diana, Princess of Wales at the funeral of Princess Grace of Monaco. It is perhaps a little off topic, but I find it interesting to ponder the impact of the losses of Diana, Grace and Astrid of Belgium on their respective reigning families. Queen Astrid's death was probably the most devastating, since she left her children so young and her husband so politically vulnerable.

This is very moving, Matterhorn. I can't help wondering if Diana, Princess of Wales, had any sense or premonition of the scene being replayed in London some years later following her own passing in similar circumstances.
