She was the jewel in the monarchy’s rusting old crown,
like a diamond she shone in her new wedding gown.
The people were eager to break from the dreary old past,
little knowing that for Diana the dream wouldn’t last.
She was radiant for a while at the birth of her boys,
her full attention she gave to their games and their toys.
A slimming disease then took a hold of her life,
so the system decided she could no longer be a royal wife.
