Black Friday

It’s Black Friday.

I should be shopping but since I pretty much bought all my presents online I’m watching The Crown on Netflix and eating Thanksgiving leftovers.

The Crown is a dramatization of the life of Queen Elizabeth of England.

I’ve just gotten up to the part where Princess Diana makes an appearance.

It’s honestly hard to watch, knowing how things ended for this poor woman.

I remember when she and Prince Charles got married.

I watched from my grandmother’s living room floor as we crowded into her tiny home in Small Town, Pennsylvania to watch the wedding.

Such hope and promise.

I hadn’t anticipated this much emotion surrounding Princess Diana.

I am neither British, nor am I a fan of the royal family.

I feel profound sadness when I’m reminded of her untimely death.

We could use more of the kindness and philanthropy she brought into the world.

One thought on “Black Friday

  1. Watching her wedding was an important moment in my teen life. She was ordinary and became a princess!!! Granted, she was beautiful and extraordinary, but from my spot on the living room floor, she was and became a heroine. Agree it would be difficult to watch as we know her future was cut off too soon. It still hurts to think about her death, Diana was a celebrity for millions, not just a random bunch of girls.
