Spencer Regrets Diana Funeral Blast

DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES' brother EARL SPENCER regrets his infamous outburst at the British monarchy at his sister's funeral 10 years ago (97). Spencer admits the sentiment of what he was said was right, but he could have expressed it in another way. During his eulogy at the London's Westminster Cathedral, Spencer was seen to attack the royal family, by saying, "I pledge that we, your blood family, will do all we can to continue the imaginative way in which you were steering these two exceptional young men so that their souls are not simply immersed by duty and tradition but can sing openly as you planned." Ten years on, Spencer says, "I'd much rather I hadn't had to deliver it all, but when the moment came, I felt I had to step up for Diana. "To be honest, I still feel I did the right thing. "I know that when I die it will be the only thing I am remembered for. You can't speak your mind and then be offended when people don't agree with what you are saying."

Dear EARL SPENCER, I want to add and say that you should never regret at all of what you have said on the day of Diana's funeral. Anybody that had Diana as a sister, would have said the same things. I am not even her sister and I agree about what you said. Nobody could have said it in a better way and if you had said it in a different way, would it not have had the same impact or message. The truth is the truth and we will never change it. Those people that have blood on their hands, knows that too. You have stood up for her and never betrayed her like the one that betrayed her when she promised her life to him. So be proud of what you did for her that day and remember, she smiled upon you for what you did and God is proud of you. There is also reason as to why the case is still going for investigation. One has to ask yourself how much share God has in this and what it is that our Almighty wants us to find out. We should let this investigation run its course and if necessary, will God prevail the truth to us, only then can we accept of what happened that night. Even the boys said the other day that they are still wondering what happened that night and God is going to give us the answers. Lets leave Him to finish the investigation, until then will we trust in our Saviour to give us peace and that He will keep you save and sound in you memories of Diana. And you must know, she is busy preparing for you in heaven and that you and the boys will see her again.RoenelSouth Africa
