OUTFITS: Nona Renn keeps princess' fashion sense alive. Remember a wedding dress with 10,000 pearls and sequins and a 25-foot train? Nona Renn is here to make sure you never forget Princess Diana's wedding dress nor her Enchantment Dress nor her polka-dot period.
The Princess of Wales was famous as a fashion trendsetter, and Renn has gained a small measure of fame in memorializing those fashions through doll clothes. She's created several original patterns and by replicating them made some 450 outfits she sells to special clients and on eBay.
Britain’s first formal inquest into the deaths of Princess Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed opened Tuesday, a case in which some see a sinister conspiracy but one of Diana’s bodyguards dismisses as a “mundane road traffic accident.” Royal coroner Michael Burgess, signaling a broad probe, said he had asked London’s Metropolitan Police to investigate whether conspiracy theories should be part of the inquest. Burgess then adjourned the case, saying it likely would reopen early next year.

THE beleaguered fountain built as a memorial to Princess Diana is to close for four months for urgent repairs. The £3million fountain in London's Hyde Park has been plagued by problems since it opened in July.
A holiday season burst of attendance for the Princess Diana exhibit at Fort Lauderdale's Museum of Art has prompted a three-week extension through Jan. 23. "We had a surge the day after Christmas and were packed all day," museum executive director Irvin Lippman said Tuesday afternoon. "We still have lines of people waiting outside."
One of the problems with conspiracy theory is that it is so much easier to theorise than it is to conspire. Real plots require, as a bare minimum, meticulous planning, a certain amount of luck, and the assured silence and loyalty of the participants. The 9/11 conspiracy was at least four years in the making. Within five minutes, it was all being blamed on the CIA. Seventeen years ago, Barry Mannakee, a former bodyguard of Diana, Princess of Wales, died in a road crash on a nondescript stretch of the A11 in Essex. Last week, in a poor-quality videotape, broadcast in America, the Princess was heard expressing the view that Mannakee, with whom she apparently had an intimate relationship during the 1980s, was "bumped off".
