“I was working at a CBS Affiliate in the States ( Texas). We had just finished our Saturday evening
10pm news. I was actually joining the BBC the following month and had planned a look-see visit the following week. I flew over and was in London in the week just after her death. I remember going to Kensington Palace to pay my respects and the massive collections of flower bouquets were like nothing you have ever seen. Most of the grounds of
Kensington Palace were covered in bouquets.
The atmosphere was, as you’d expect, very sad, but people from all over the world were there paying their respects as well.”
