Princess Diana “broke down barriers” for the Royal Family, revolutionizing royal protocol.
PRINCESS On the anniversary of Diana’s death, royal scholar Robert Jobson praised her for “breaking down barriers” for the Royal family.
Princess Diana’s legacy on the Royal Family has been explored by royal reporter Robert Jobson, 24 years after the Princess’s terrible death. Mr Jobson recalled how Diana “broke barriers” for the Royal Family and contributed to the monarchy’s popularity by being approachable to the public. Despite Diana’s brief appearance on the world scene, he told GB News host Simon McCoy that she left a lasting legacy for the British monarchy.
“She actually achieved a lot of fantastic things, from breaking down the taboo linked with HIV/AIDS,” Mr Jobson told GB News.
“Tried her hardest to clear us of landmines, but it’s not easy.
“However, she went out and tried to do it.
“More than that, I believe she helped the Royal Family break down barriers.”
“She was a person who was easy to talk to.
“She had her flaws, but she was quite approachable in front of the camera.
“And the public adored her for it, as well as the fact that she was unlike any other member of the Royal Family.
“I believe the Royal Family has evolved through her sons since her little stint on the world stage.”
Diana passed away in a car accident in Paris on August 31, 1997.
Members of the press have spoken out ahead of the one-year anniversary of her death, recalling their horror at reporting the awful incident.
“I’ve covered breaking news my entire life and nothing affected me like that until 9/11,” CBS News London Bureau Chief Marcy McGinnis told this website.
“Until 9/11, this was the largest story I’d ever covered, and I was in charge of it in London, so there was a lot of pressure.
“It was quite tough to wrap my head around the intensity and horror of it.”
“I recall the very last night we were off the air, after covering her burial.
“That night, we did another special, and I remember sitting back in my chair about 2 a.m. London time, because it was on the air in prime time in New York, and all of a sudden tears were just flowing out of my eyes.”
“I believe it was all of that pent-up energy.” Brinkwire Summary News
