"In the hospital she was as beautiful as we remember her", said a French Diplomat. He added "when her death was declared, the British Ambassador lost his equilibrium and started cried. He cried like a child. We were shocked."
When she died I was in Tunisia. My cousin told me in the morning of August 31st, 1997 saying "the Queen Diana, has died". I froze and asked him "who? who dies Diana or the Queen?", he replied " I do not know, You know her better than me. Go and watch the television." It was a terrible day. I called the British Ambassador's residence in La Marsa, Tunis. I talked with Mrs. Genevieve Edis, Ambassador's wife. She calmed me down. After two days, I went to the British Embassy to present my condolences to the British Ambassodors the Late Excellency Richard Edis (who dies of Cancer few years later). My late father (who dies in 2006) went with me.
