Respect for the family's privacy at this stage is thought to be only just, in view of the public nature of the earlier part of the day.

On behalf of Charles, William, Harry and all my family and of all the Spencer family with us today.

I do find the anniversaries particularly difficult, as do all our family.

She needed no royal title to continue to generate her particular brand of magic.

I don't think she ever understood why her genuinely good intentions were sneered at by the media, why there appeared to be a permanent quest on their behalf to bring her down. It is baffling.

Today is our chance to say 'thank you' for the way you brightened our lives, even though God granted you but half a life.

We will all feel cheated that you were taken from us so young, and yet we must learn to be grateful that you came along at all.

The fact that she would have been 40 has added to the poignancy this year and I just hope we are doing the best we can for her without having her around any more.
