Some confessions for this dreary Wednesday:

  • I watched the wedding of Diana and Prince Charles on TV.
  • I once kept a scrapbook of photos of Princess Di’s hair, which I religiously took with me for reference every time I got my own hair cut.
  • In a fit of grownup tidiness, I threw that scrapbook away many years ago.
  • I really wish I still had it.
  • I watched Diana’s funeral on TV.
  • I have a box in my basement that holds a video of her funeral, and every press clipping I could get my hands on about her death.
  • I teared up this morning when I read that William gave Kate Middleton his mother’s engagement ring.
  • I teared up again later in the day when I read what William said about it:  “My way of making sure my mother didn’t miss out on today.”
