I met her on a shuttle from Edinburgh to London. I thought she was a celebrity double. Then it dawned on me it was her. Her "guard" did nothing when I bent over to say to her that my wife thought she was wonderful- and she cackled a single "haw!" right in my face. Memorable. There was a lone paparazzi on the flight who kept nodding and winking at everyone and changing lenses on-off on-off on-off. I said to an English woman who was sharing the standing-room-because-too many-people-got-on-the-plane (I kid you not - times have indeed changed) beside me, "Wow, Princess Diana." and she said, "I know, isn't it terrible, they'll let anyone on these planes."
Met B.B. King on the way over too, BTW.
