  1. Still Years Later Princess Diana’s Elvis Gown Still Moves Me
    By D.K. Milgrim-Heath ©2016
    Still years later Princess Diana’s Elvis gown still moves me-
    Every time I see her in her gown photographed actually.
    Her beauty, Royal Princess Demeanor ,kindness and her grace-
    Our Princess Diana of (Hearts)/Wales the icon one can’t ever duplicate-
    Her William married Catherine and in some ways she does compensate.
    Gladly her boys William and Harry in many ways do take after their beloved Mother-
    By empathy and kindness for others the world we see Diana in them as blessed brothers.

  2. Only One Princess of Hearts Diana… and one Elvis dress never again to be repeated on earth.
    Diana was in a class by herself and the world realizes that and those memories never will be forgotten.
    Her boys emulate her so lovingly and truthfully -Diana will never be forgotten too much of a godly woman she was.
    Showed the world how to love less unfortunate people around the world no matter their serious illness and she made people less afraid to touching sick people too without surgical gloves.
