BMS in New Zealand Herald: Diana Locks
The BMS has been featured by The New Zealand Herald in an article titled: Outrage at sale of Princess Diana’s hair.
A lock of hair allegedly from the Princess of Wales is up for sale online at $1800. The American seller described the memorabilia on the Amazon website as a “few strands” of Diana’s hair. The lock comes in a frame with a photograph and a facsimile signature. It is claimed the strands were taken from a book signed by Diana in 1995 – two years before her death in a Paris car accident – although exactly how they came to be there is not explained.
A spokesman for the British Monarchist Society said: “The sale of modern royal hair makes us feel uneasy and we are sure Princes William and Harry would be disturbed by the auction too: it is, essentially, a body part.” READ THE FULL ARTICLE HERE.
