What Would Princess Diana Be Doing If She Were Alive Today?

"I can see her in pale grey, maybe, with a wide-brimmed hat from under which that long, slow, slightly sarky smile would flicker momentarily in Camilla's direction…. before coming back to rest once more on the young couple."
—Oh, thank God, now Julie Burchill is here to tell you what Princess Diana would be doing if she were alive today.

This Princess Di obsession thing was creepy while she was still alive, and it's even creepier now.

"But the difference (apart from beauty, brightness, bravery etc) is that while Diana moved on from navel-gazing to world-embracing, Ferguson has kept her sights firmly up her own fundament."

@A Snood Mood "… so I took it upon myself to watch up Diana's."

Which leaves Toby Young to imagine what kind of embarrassing real estate scams Dodi Al-Fayed would be involved with in UAE. Standing by.

@gregorg I was just imagining Di holed up in their last remaining property in Dubai as Dodi languishes in jail, her own money vaporized by Madoff, weeping into her Fresca and Bombay,dressed in a frayed Missoni bikini, cruising pro-anna sites and Skyping Fergie.

@SarahHeartburn

Add in an obsession with tabloids and fashion magazines and you've nailed it.

@SarahHeartburn Great. It's not even 11am and now I want a Bombay and Fresca.

@hman Before he died he was going to change it to Diddy.

I think she'd be playing in a band.

@NotAndersonCooper With Courtney Love and the Duchess of York.

@C_Webb The Duchess of York! The one truly deserving of death apparently! Why doesn't that former princess just die already!?

C_Webb (#855)

@Maevemealone She has Oprah and Weight Watchers behind her. She will never die.

The nice thing about this sort of piece is that it affords the opportunity to use the expression "what a load of codswallop!"

I can tell you mean it because you included a period in the hashtag.

Christ, I preferred Burchill when she was a Commie.

Come on, people. She'd be playing a rousing session of Diana, Warrior Princess. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diana:_Warrior_Princess
