Yesterday ,afternoon The BBC ,took us to the newly opened Wembly Stadium,in London ,to see the concert the Princes William and Harry had helped to organise for their late Mothers 46th birthday ,15 million people saw this and it was televised in140 countrys.It was on from 3.30 until nearly 10.30 pm and I watched most of it ! I hadnt really planned to watch but ,I had a peep and was hooked ,like Jeannette (jottings) and I see Astra,watched it too,As did Jayne (single girl ) who has also done an entry ,and many others Im sure enjoyed it as much I did .
The Princes introduced the show ,saying it would be a programme of all their Mothers favourites,and some of theirs too ,Harry sent a message to his regiment the Blues and Royals ,currently serving in Iraq,saying how he missed them ,wished he could be with them ,and told them to keep safe ,many wonderful acts includedSir Elton John ,who opened and closed the show ,Bryan Ferry,,Status Quo,,Duran Duran,,Will Young..Tom Jones,,Nelly Fortado,,James Morrison,The show also featured a medley of Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber songs ,performed by Anastacia,Josh Groban,Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman,we saw Lee Mead ,singing songs from 'Joseph 'with Donny Osmand and Jason Donavan, and Connie who won the part of 'Maria 'last year,was there, singing beautifully too . The Royal ballet had the whole audience spell bound as they danced from the final act from Swan Lake ,Diana loved the ballet and indeed all kinds of dance ,music and the theatre,beween the acts all sorts of people were fimed telling what a difference Diana had made to their lives ,I agree with Jeannette it was spoiled only by the lack of a proper compere ,but that is my only complaint ,I saw that Harrys girl,friend Chelsy sat beside him ,but Kate Middleton although there, wasnt sitting beside William !Their cousins, Prince Andrews daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie ,were there boogying away each time they were caught on camera,and I spotted Dianas Brother Charles , The Earl Spencer,and her sisters The evening closed with some family film,of Diana as a baby at her Christening and growing up ,at Park house Sandringham,in Norfolk
All in all it was a wonderful celebration of a life so very sadly cut short nearly ten years ago
With Love Jan xx
