Princess Diana Tribute Tshirts

Is it possible it's been 20 years since Diana, Princess of Wales, left us? It was 1997, and the 20th anniversary of that terrible day is coming up. It's hard to miss all the tributes, TV shows, magazines, and articles that are coming out now.

Opinion is still divided about Diana and her legacy. Some believe she was wronged by a husband who never loved her and a system that didn't support her. Others (with whom I disagree vehemently) believe she was manipulative and slightly deranged. Those of us who watched her life, from wedding to funeral, were witness to the evolution and transformation from an almost schoolgirlishly naive teenager to a sophisticated, shrewd woman. There's no doubt she was highly intelligent, and was grievously wronged. Loved by everyone except the man she yearned to be loved by (Prince Charles), she could have become a bitter and twisted person, but instead she learned to live life as much on her own terms as was possible under the circumstances. She forever changed the monarchy, not just by giving birth to a future king (and a "spare" - the indomitable Prince Harry) who is bent on modernizing the monarchy, but by lifting back the curtain of mystery that the monarchy used to hide behind. She showed us they were humans, flawed and imperfect, and the monarchy will never be the same.
These two t-shirts are made in tribute to this remarkable woman, and contain quotes that are emblematic of her life and her gifts.
