Princess Diana’s Private Function With David Beckham

“Hopefully it would be one of those things she would adore because the whole point is this is for her – it’s for no other reason,” says Prince William in the Mirror.

Of course, the Prince means to say the concert celebrating ten years since Diana died, a decade of Daily Express headlines, conspiracy theories and Al Fayed vomit-n-cuff shirts, is for the people, Diana’s people.

But if it is only is for Diana, then so be it. So long as the people pay, they are invited to the private show.

This may stick in the craw with some who realise that no guest paid to attend HRH Prince Azim of Brunei’s 25th birthday party, where Michael Jackson appeared. Our advice to the selfish and ungrateful is to view their outlay at the turnstiles as a present to their idol. Prince Azim got gold watches and diamond-encrusted flamingos and book tokens at his do; Diana prefers cash.

And it promises to be quite a show. Duran Duran, Sarah Brightman, Donny Osmond, Jason Donavon and a special medley by Andrew Lloyd Webber will make this the funeral show of the year.

And then there’s David Beckham. The Suns says that he will dribble on stage and introduce one of the acts.

An “insider” tells us: “He’s like the People’s King… And for Beckham it is excellent exposure for him in America right before his move to LA.”

And there was William thinking it was all for Diana…
