New Zealand Woman’s Weekly - - ROYAL TRIBUTE -

“I had been out with my dad in Hamil­ton and we were pulling back into the farm when a news re­port came across the ra­dio an­nounc­ing her death. My dad turned the en­gine off and we sat in the Toy­ota Hilux, un­able to believe what we were hear­ing. It packed quite a punch as we had just lost Mum 18 months be­fore­hand so we were al­ready feel­ing raw and filled with a sense of loss. It was a sur­real mo­ment I’ll never forget.”
