I only saw the peace campaigner and opponent of land mines, the late Princess of Wales, in the flesh once. It was in Barrow-in-Furness. I was protesting against a Trident nuclear submarine; she was launching it.

Diana's funeral brought out two things: the rediscovery of "society" and the value of loving kindness; and the affirmation of the monarchy, not as the apex of a power structure, but as a representative of a nation. Grouse-moor toffs, however dutiful, cannot be representative. The Tsar of all the Russias was keen on "duty" but lacking in the Diana virtue: empathy.
