Princess Diana's Impact

NPR's Michael Goldfarb reports from London on the way people in Britain are reassessing the biggest event of the year in that country: the death of Diana, Princess of Wales and the spontaneous public expression of grief that followed during the first week of September. Analysts are now saying it was a temporary phenomenon, rather than a permanent psychological change. However, the royal family's attitude toward the British public may be undergoing a long-term change.
