In the UK, do you have to be "in hospital" to receive an IV, or can you be hooked up at home?

(She might just need an IV.)

She wasn't rushed anywhere. She was driven there in her private car. Probably needs IV fluids or something.

Oh, R9, people - public and private - are ALWAYS "rushed" to the hospital. The drama, you know.

Strangely enough I had a dream about Princess Diana last night. She was independent and happy and using a smartphone.

I think she's just gone off her nut. This is the royal equivalent of seeking treatment for "exhaustion."

I screamed when Princess Diana died, and would scream louder for the Queen Mother.

I told you in the other thread -- my elderly, independent aunt who was in pretty great health died after getting gastroenteritis earlier this winter. It was a norovirus and it began a cascade that ended in respiratory failure in a pretty short period of time.

by Anonymousreply 2103/03/2013

Camilla probably poisoned her so her husband has a chance at being King and she can become Queen. If Elizabeth lives as long as her mother, the chances Charles will be living go way down.

They must be doing tests. Scans, MRi, what have you. Probably worried about dead gut.

She didn't ask to be Queen. She, nevertheless, took a role that is inherently ridiculous and performed it flawlessly, including when Diana died.

Della, the entire Royal Family including the Queen did such a scandalously poor job responding to the death of Diana that there was national outrage over their public absence. They only stepped up when it became clear that they were seriously jeopardizing the future of the monarchy with their stony silence.

by Anonymousreply 4203/03/2013

I don't adore her or anything, but I don't dislike her. It's not like she's the Pope, covering up awful crimes and dooming people to poverty with a ridiculous birth control policy.

I'm sure she's a snob and her husband is a twit. But still... she's been queen since before I was born. I hate losing celebrities, authors, cultural figures and the last of the politicians who worked for the common good (I don't fool myself by thinking the pols weren't corrupt. They were. But they did get positive policies in place for the common good).

I can see why the UK would be sick of her and her family. The popular press dogs their every move and for what? They might just be Kardashians with a thin veneer of civilized behavior.

But I don't like losing so many of the Old Guard. It makes me feel old and frightened about what's coming next. It's always something worse (except for the 2008 election which dislodged Bush &Cheney. That was better).

OK, r42, even granting your point, still, I suspect that a lot of that overwrought response to Diana's daeth has, by now, devolved into cryers remorse.

If given the chance to react again to Diana's death, knowing how over the top it all was, I think the Queen's restraint has been vindicated.

by Anonymousreply 4603/03/2013

R47, you are ill-informed indeed if you think there was not public furor in the UK aimed at the Royals immediately after after Diana died. Read some news stories from that week. There was a huge uproar, not by any means quiet or secret.

"One of the Queen's most trusted former advisers has disclosed that she feared that republican MPs would call for an end to the monarchy because of public anger at the Royal Family's initial reaction to the death of Diana, Princess of Wales....."

by Anonymousreply 4803/03/2013

Oh, I'm not worried, r47. Thanks and you wrote in your post a point that I was thinking but couldn't express in the great way you did.

R42. You are absolutely correct. The queen along with Prince Philip were abyssmal in their actions following Diana's death. Queen Elizabeth should have been particularly ashamed of her horribly unkind and unfeeling behavior. She completly misread the public's love for Diana.

You could hear the crowd outside the cathedral at Diana's funeral cheering in approval when her brother the Earl Spencer made pointed references knocking the Royal Family.

[quote]Camilla will be known straight out as The Queen, won't she?

Good luck with that. When The Queen is 'gathered' the outpouring will be momentous, as I said in the other thread. It'll be an intense blend of history, respect, affection and more, and all our yesterdays. The end of an era is no small thing.

All that, plus the very separate but equally potent Diana factor, will put Camilla in a cold thin light. How can she begin to compare? Her position is wholly unenviable: whatever PR campaigns are mounted at Charles's insistence, she'll be accorded grudging respect at best for years.

I agree with 47 though. Later on there were documentaries that exposed Diana's spiteful jabs at the Queen. She ruined Elizabeth's anniversary by airing her dirty laundry on the exact day. It was childish. She didn't get what being a monarch entails. Fergie and Diana enjoyed watching Lizbet sweat. The Queen was merely following protocol and ancient traditions. I feel for the Queen having to suffer through Diana's mental illness and tantrums. After her death previously hidden secrets were leaked and sane people realised she was disturbed. Most people then came to empathise with Elizabeth and understand her bitter reaction. Diana fucked with her for years, tormenting her. That shit is aging and tiring. We all have known someone like this at our making a living or in our families. It's a sense of relief when these people pass but they brought about their own legacy. Can't fault us for not being crushed.

They Royals should have allowed Diana a royally sanctioned lover. Charles had one in Camilla. It was unfair of him to retire his wife to a lifetime of presumed celibacy starting in her early 20s. You'd be neurotic too.

Elizabeth needed to be told to do the right thing when Diana died. Elizabth and Philip's behavior was atrocious and hightly disrespectful.

While Liz and Phil were in Scotland, all they had to do was turn on the television and see the reaction of the British public to know that their rude and dismissive behavior was way out of line with the outpouring of love by the people for Diana.

Not to excuse their behavior, but at some point Phil ordered all of the TVs removed from Balmoral. Apparently, William had watched some report, became distraught, and took off without his royal protection officers. They didn't know his whereabouts on the estate for a while and had to send out search parties. He was eventually found and kept away from media. Perhaps the Queen stayed away from it, too, or the courtiers fed her selective information.

BTW, this is from Tina Brown's book about Diana.
