  The Gold Flame preceded her death.

Do you remember being told that Princess Diana had been killed and how you felt then?

As we came upon this scene I wondered what the people were looking at.

"This is a memorial to Princess Diana." My friend told me.

A rush of feelings flooded back. The reality of all the newspaper stories was just in front of me and so was evidence of the sympathetic nature of the people of Paris.

It's always impressive to come smack in the middle of history. In Paris this is so easy to do, especially if you've read books about Kings, Queens and Court intrigues, but such a recent history as the death of Diana was nothing I ever expected to see just around the corner.
