  • londonlover – “I think it probably was built out of the best materials.. But that is not really the issue. The issue is why did they build that? It is not a memorial in the strictest sense. Because a memorial is supposed to bring attention to the person's life. It seems to me that it is an attempt to build a memorial whilst not really recognising her at all. Given that the royal family did not like diana, I dont think they would have given the go ahead to a memorial that glamorised her in kensington gardens. They are quite happy with this little river that can be mistaken as a normal piece of the park furniture. Sadly, I think that is why many people dont like it -- because you are not supposed to like it”
  •  Guest – “I like the idea of the monument..Water, fun, kids, but I thnk the actal structure is both confusing and dangerous. What are you supposed to do? Sit and look? Walk? Interact with the monument? That's what we tried to do, and it was dangerous. We slipped and slid and had to exit onto muddy and slippery ground. Tear it up and build something new.”
