Diana's Mom Comforted by Mourners
Jul. 17, 1998
LONDON (AP) _ Princess Diana's mother said she mingled among mourners after her daughter's death, drawing strength from their grief.
Diana's mother, Frances Shand Kydd, said in a television interview aired Thursday night in the United States that she spent the three nights before Diana's funeral among mourners outside her daughter's Kensington Palace home.
``It was unbelievable there aren't words to describe it,'' she said in her first interview since her daughter's death in a Paris car crash Aug. 31.
Tens of thousands of people flocked to Kensington Gardens to lay flowers and mementos at the gates of the palace after Diana's death.
``With literally thousands of people comforting, sharing, we were sharing a very deep hurt,'' she said. ``But I think far too little has been said about what people all over the world gave to her. They nourished her, they made her smile, they gave her strength.''
Earlier The Mirror tabloid, published a transcript of the interview that differed substantially from the program.
