The blatant product placement of the pic with her with the IPhone or whatever just makes it so much worse. It's like they're not even being subtle about their manipulation of her image for profit.

Completely tasteless. They should be ashamed and they owe her family an apology.

I saw a much better take on this earlier today.  It was "Diana at 50: Her Legacy Lives On" and examining how her different charities and things continued now.  That's the way Di would've preferred to be remembered, I think.

I fully agree... that picture was just creepy. I know plenty of 50+ year old people, and none of them look that much like a zombie
My inner (r-word) is having a field day with this one.
