“I was – and still am – fas­ci­nated by

Princess Diana, the glam­orous Peo­ple’s

Princess. I had just turned 21 and started my first full-time job at Gis­borne’s Ra­dio 2ZG when it was an­nounced that Princess Diana had died. I was truly stunned by the news. It was a sur­real mo­ment, no­body could, or wanted to, believe it. She had achieved so much in her 36 years – from help­ing to shat­ter the stigma around Aids to fight­ing to ban land­mines. But her great­est legacy is her chil­dren, Wil­liam and Harry, who do their very best to be or­di­nary men. No airs or graces – she would be proud.”
