Can you remember what you were doing when you heard the news?

I cannot remember, this probably has something to do with not being born yet. I was a group of atoms, wandering around the earth instead.

I don't remember, probably for the same reason that ConorT99 doesn't remember.

I had not been born when she passed away, but (maybe with the exception of her children) Diana is the only historic member of the royal family who I genuinely have a lot of respect for. She was a very inspirational person and was mistreated disgustingly by the rest of the royal family.

I had just turned three. But yes ^ I'm not opposed to the idea that it was a setup.

I was a fetus at the time, approximately 20-21 weeks gestational age. Around the time fetal movement is first felt by the mother, and a few weeks after synapses start to form.

I was at friends house here in Italy and the father of one of my friends started to curse journalists. 

But to be honest, this is the product of stupidity of royal people. If they would stop even now to appear so special things like that would not happen.

I take my top off, I fuck with girls, I get drunk, I have a lover and so what.?  i am just a human...   

These identities wont longer exist in the future.

Absolutely. Wouldn't be surprised if the royals had something to do with it.

I was 10. I remember my oldest sister becoming really upset whenever she heard the news. I didn't know anything about Princess Diana or the royal family, I just remember being scared/bewildered by the sudden change in mood.

I was a bunch of nutrients and elements. I was either carbon in the carbon cycle that happened to make it on the platter or reused dead cells.

 

That's where I was.

I was a cloud of dark matter roaming the universe, all of time and space and whatnot just making the most of the 694 days until I would be teleported into a woman's uterus and wouldn't be released for a further 290 days.

I was still a fetus, one year before my birth lol. She was the only royal person in the UK to be respected, and I do believe her murder was set up. I wonder what happened to her Muslim husband though.

The only thing I remember about 1997, where I was 9 years old,  was watching Terminator 2 Judgement Day with my brother and Dad, i closed my eyes for half of it xD

Yeah, I was a toddler at this point. August 31st, 1997? I was a hair over 2 months away from turning 3. 

 

Which makes it all the most rage-inducing to me that I'm 21 going on 22, and that a person born on that date is now 19 years old. But yeah, it's been 19 years. I can't imagine what the despair inside Buckingham Palace was like on 1 September, 1997.
