Throngs of mourners showed up outside the gates of Kensington Palace on Thursday, the 20th anniversary of the death of Princess Diana.
Leaving floral tributes, teddy bears and mountains of flowers where Diana once lived, according to The Washington Post, the response proves that even though two decades have passed, Princess Di is as beloved as ever.
…unless you’re an obituary editor for the BBC.
Nick Serpell, obituary editor for BBC News, had a one-word response to a tweet from BBC’s Simon McCoy asking folks for their thoughts on the Princess of Wales’s death in Paris in 1997: “Bored.”
Serpell expanded on that thought in a post on Facebook, according to the Daily Mail.
“Hopefully today will the last on which we have to suffer mawkish media Diana drivel,” he reportedly opined.
It has been 20 years, a long time in today’s fast moving society… is Serpell right, is it time to move on?

Recording superstar Elton John, who sang at her funeral in 1997, also marked the anniversary on Instagram, sharing a photo of himself with Princess Diana.
“20 years ago today, the world lost an angel. #RIP,” the caption read.
Seen as the “People’s Princess,” Diana would certainly be a welcome reprieve from the corrosive political environment of today. Rest in Peace, dear princess.
