Prince William and Prince Harry will mark the 10th anniversary of their mother’s gruesome death with an event to celebrate her life and fritter away tax money coerced from their obliging subjects that would have otherwise been spent on Polo equipment and horse-faced Sloanes.
The Concert for Diana on 1st July 2007, which would have been Diana’s 46th birthday, will be one of the first events to take place in the new Wembley Stadium. But in a more accurate way, it will be the 4th event.
Proceeds from the concert (minus expenses for employing technical workers, advertising & public relations, hospitality and utilities) will go to charities supported by the late Princess in lieu of getting a real job in her lifetime, and to charities of which the Princes have been obliged to offer public support by the palace Press Office.
The concert will feature the family friendly (read: staggeringly banal) and wholly appropriate likes of:
Elton John (gay), Nelly Furtado (dressed like whore to boost flagging career), Kanye West (shared Diana's love of attention), Lily Allen (advised by PR that doing something benevolent might stop people thinking of her as an up herself prick who used daddy's money to buy a band), Natasha Bedingfield (shared Diana's love of being blonde and stupid), Rod Stewart (shared Diana's love of being blonde and stupid), Joss Stone (...you get the idea).
Also in attendance will be the Queen (who wishes to make it entirely clear she had nothing to do with Diana's death), her ex-husband and his new wife who actually has half a thought in her head and who makes him very, very, very happy indeed.
