It has been a decade since Princess Diana’s death in Paris, and 1 July 2007 would have been 46th birthday. Her sons, the Princes William and Harry instigated this live concert on her birthday to commemorate her life.
She surpassed the stiff royal exclusivity and made these creatures more acceptable to the larger population, not only of Britain, but the whole world.
The show was broadcast live to 140 countries and featured a range of acts including some of Diana’s favourites.
They included Duran Duran, The Feeling, Bryan Ferry, Anastacia, Status Quo, Orson, Natasha Bedingfield, Rod Stewart, Joss Stone, Nelly Furtado, Take That, Kanye West, Sarah Brightman, Andrea Bocelli, and more.
Besides the bands and singers it also featured live appearances and video messages from comedians like Ben Stiller and Ricky Gervais, sportsmen like David Beckham and Boris Becker, statesmen from Nelson Mandela, and Tony Blair, to Bill Clinton, and actors like Gillian Anderson and Dennis Hopper.
Various documentary shorts on Diana and her life further enhance the entire experience.
