Respect her

I, like many others globally, will be delighted that Kate and William have decided to honour Princess Diana in their daughter’s name.

Princess Diana was loved greatly because of her humility and compassion and her charity work which educated millions on the issues of Aids, homelessness, mental health and land mines, and this love was manifested with an international outpouring of grief after her tragic death.

My only concern for Princess Charlotte is that in years to come the press may constantly look for similarities to Diana and compare her to her late grandmother.

I say to the press: Princess Charlotte is an individual; please let her individual character and personality shine through while Diana’s name lives on.
