Princess Diana in Nepal


In the past few days, there has been a huge amount of interest on the new Royal Baby. From the moment Will & Kate went into the hospital, it was all eyes on Britain’s favourite couple. The Royal Baby, Prince George of Cambridge was born on 22 July at St. Mary’s Hospital in London. Media from all over of the world had lined up outside the hospital and the Buckingham palace to capture the historic event. Few reporters enthusiastically congratulated the hundreds waiting outside to hear the news. I was watcing Sky News (First for Breaking News) all day and let’s just say Kay Burley had me very entertained. Wonderful news and congratulations to the parents.

Several TV channels in the UK have been showing documentaries about Princess Diana since the past week. They mostly consisted of ‘so and so’ talking about what Diana would be like as a grandmother if she was alive and highlighted various key events in her life during her marriage to Princess Charles and after. I went on a Google spree to relive the moments when Princess Diana visited Nepal in March 1993. Her 5 day long trip to Nepal was Diana’s first trip abroad since her separation from Prince Charles. The Princess was greeted by the Crown Prince of Nepal Dipendra Shah upon arrival in Kathmandu. As the patron of British Red Cross Youth and the Leprosy Mission, the Princess visited several projects supported by the charity and also met the patients at Anandaban Leprosy Hospital.

I’ve pulled a few images from across the web and some videos that were on youtube.

  2. Personally I think the Royal’s need to return to Nepal, whether we’re royalists or not, and they may not be perfect, the Royal family built up a lot of respect by foreign dignitaries. Politicians at this rate will never build up the same respect, Nepal will just be a distant horizon for many.

  3. The doctor in the picture with Princess Diana at Anandaban Hospital is Dr Jagajan “JJ” Karmcharya, who was killed in the Buddha Air mountain flight crash in September 2011. At the time of his death, he was the Chief of Vascular Surgery at the Miami VA Hospital.
