Lady Diana is still a resident of Hello magazine's front page on the 20th anniversary of her death. I remember exactly where I was when the shocking news broke - in my bed in the early hours, wakened by our daughter's telephone call.
Shortly after an unusual invitation I ascended scaffolding to the very top of the Albert Memorial presenting a bird's eye view of the vast sea of flowers accumulated at the railings of Kensington Palace. As I descended, patting Prince Albert's head on
the way down, it dawned that this unique moment would live on, never mind Hello magazine.

    What a terrific and moving experience... and a privilege. I'm sure Prince Albert appreciated the tap on the head... not many people will have done that.
