"Who does not have a share of this?" asks your leading article about the life and death of Princess Diana (7 September). I don't, and I am not alone.

Thousands, perhaps millions, of people are not remotely interested in the monarchy or the Royal Family, or in the lives of individual figures - even if we were occasionally intrigued by the increasingly human character or impressed by the genuinely humanitarian work of Diana herself.

Thousands, perhaps millions, of people had no involvement in and therefore no responsibility for the media pursuit which culminated in her death or the media campaign which encouraged the hysteria afterwards.
