I totally loved Princess Di, and was very sad when she died such a young death. I can’t believe she’s been gone so many years now and was one of those who was glued to the TV for days during that tragic time.
And I recently heard from another blogger in Georgia that there will be a special Blogger’s Day, honoring Princess Diana at an exhibit hosted at the Atlanta Civic Center. Read on for all the details if you’re interested in getting free entry to this event. I doubt I’ll be able to make it, but maybe some of you will be.
You are invited to attend Diana: A Celebration Blogger Day. This exhibit, now open at the Atlanta Civic Center, chronicles the life of the late Diana, Princess of Wales.
Diana: A Celebration showcases the life and humanitarian work of Diana through nine galleries containing more than 150 artifacts-ranging from Diana’s royal wedding gown and 28 of her designer dresses to family heirlooms, personal mementos, paintings, rare home movies and photos.
Diana: A Celebration Blogger Day will be held at the Atlanta Civic Center on Saturday, March 6, 2010. Come experience this touching exhibition first hand from 10:00am-7:00pm (last admission at 5:00pm).
Bloggers will receive FREE admission for them and one guest. Please RSVP to [email protected] by Wednesday, March 3 and include your blog’s web address for verification.
Tickets will be available for pick up at the Box Office, located in the lobby of the exhibition, the day of the event.
Please feel free to extend the invite to fellow bloggers.
Oh, Rhoda, I was a huge fan/follower of Princess Di. I remember vividly the morning I saw the news of her accident on TV. I was devastated. I had never felt such a sense of loss for pretty much a stranger.
I remember her every time I look out my back door. The day she died, we had plans to plant a new tree by our deck. Seems everything we planted at that corner died. That day we planted a gorgeous Blue Atlas Cedar and it has absolutely thrived! It’s my “Princess” tree!
I would love to be able to attend such a function, but for me, it’s a bit far to travel. There was a Diana Exhibit not far from me in Philadelphia not too long ago. Again, I couldn’t attend. I wonder if it’s the same exhibit? Most likely.
Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful weekend.

Diana truly was a princess of the people. She did so much good for several worth causes. She is missed by many, but I’m sure missed the most by her two sons.

How cool! We Americans have such a fascination with royalty. 🙂 I dressed up as Princess Di for my kindergarten Halloween parade. I still remember my costume! Such a beautiful lady, inside and out. 🙂
For as much as she was a thorn in the Queen’s side, she probably was more of a positive PR influence than any other British royalty figure in recent years. I am not one to go crazy about a celebrity or public figure, but Diana had something special that made the world watch.
The night she died we were up late packing for our trip to California the next morning. My hubby was watching t.v. while packing and came and told me the news. I could hardly believe it and thought it was just so sad, and I felt so bad for her young children!

I loved Princess Diana and, as you say, was glued to the television. I think it affected me in the sense that I was just a few years younger than her, so her being so young and tragically killed, along with her children losing their mother, really affected me. I never followed any royals before her or since.

So sad. Thank you for letting us know about this event. I’d love to attend…if it was in Seattle!
Have a beautiful weekend,
Went to this exhibit in Cleveland and got the audio tour…its a MUST! I was in high school when she died and was up late when the news broke too. I was truly touched by this exhibit and was a wonderful experience. I hope you go a day with low traffic like I did with my sister in law. We spent a LONG time in there.
All of it was awe inspiring…Hope you will enjoy the show and go!!!
I’ll never forget the night she died: we had been at a wedding that day and were with a crowd in one of the hotel rooms just hanging out when the news came on the TV. We all sat glued and in shock as the reality sunk in. It was SO hard to believe. In her short life she influenced so many and did so much GOOD! I think of her often. XO, Pinky
I attended the Diana exhibit in ATL last Friday and really enjoyed this “walk thru” biography of such a gracious lady. Many of Diana’s personal affects were on display as well as a large selection of her amazing wardrobe. Little mention of her divorce or of the ugliness she endured by the royals. Very tastefully done and a fitting tribute to a great humanitarian.
Oh Rhoda, I loved Princess Diana also!! My own daughter is named after her. The night she died we had been in ther emergency room with my Diana as she had appendicitus (sp)earlier that week & they made a small tiny incision telling us it stood a 50/50 chance of getting infected but preferred to do them that way for girls and sure enough it got infected. It was very late or early in the morning headed home after picking up prescription from Wal-Mart when we heard it on the news on the radio in the car. So very sad…..she was beautiful, caring & classy!

Even now, I don’t know why but I was tremendously affected by her life and death. I will never forget that night or the days that followed. I won’t be able to attend but it’s good to know she continues to affect people.
Oh wow! I plan to see it while it’s here so I just might take advantage of the free admission! Thanks for the info.

I saw the exhibit in Philadelphia and it was absolutely worth the money I paid. The minute I turned the corner and saw her sparkling tiara, I was in tears. She was born in the same month and year as myself and I followed her wedding, the birth of her precious sons, and the heartache she endured throughout her life. I, too, will never forget when I heard the news that she died. I was in shock that someone so vivacious, so strong, so on the road to happiness finally — was now gone so soon.
I cannot wait to read other’s reactions to the exhibit. It was truly a once in a lifetime event for me to see her wedding dress, her passport, etc. It was very moving.
hai , the princess diana is de vry hlpful prsn >She always like 2 be hpy n did nt lk be sad.

Do you think she would have loved you all back or continued to take taxpayer money to live in opulence and self-pity?
