Well, pictures of flowers always get votes...
6 September 2018.EXCLUSIVE: Princess Diana's ‘coffin’ driven in taxi in GROTESQUE funeral ‘remake’. A bunch of ragtag gothics made a mockery of the People’s Princess in the “sick” satirical re-enactment yesterday – the 21st anniversary of her funeral...Two decades ago saw 2.5billion people watch Diana’s final journey from Kensington Palace to Westminster Abbey in a sending off that gripped the world...But those dignified and respectful scenes were replaced last night by a jaw-dropping “blasphemous” re-make that would leave Diana’s fans “sickened”...Her hearse was swapped for a Uber the Royal Standard draping the coffin replaced with a black flag, and the crowds changed with arty youngsters holding cans of beer...Elton John’s famous Candle in the Wind was performed by a live Mexican mariachi band and was said to have featured a Jimmy Savile impersonatonator. Westminster Abbey became an industrial unit in Salford – a warehouse-turned-venue called The White Hotel – and the procession route was a walk across a dual carriageway...“Mourners” pretended to cry as they threw flowers at the hearse and even a lone brocolli in a bizarre throwback to the emotional scenes on September 6, 1997...The gobsmacking scenes have been revealed to Daily Star Online by Bolton photographer Phil Taylor, 57, who attended the event...He told us: “It was a very bizarre event – it didn’t seem to touch people in any way emotional whatsoever..
