Diana memorial show raises 1.2m

Sir Elton John played at the gig, seen by 14.8m TV viewers in the UK
The concert held in memory of Princess Diana in London in July raised 1.2m for charity, it has been announced.
Stars including Sir Elton John played at the gig, organised by Princes William and Harry before the 10th anniversary of their mother's death.

Eight good causes will each receive at least 150,000 from the proceeds.

A Clarence House spokesman said the princes were "keen that any proceeds should be shared among the eight charities which they had selected".

The chosen beneficiaries include the Diana, Princess of Wales, Memorial Fund plus Harry's charity Sentebale, which helps Aids orphans in Lesotho.


The princes were in the Wembley crowd of about 63,000 people
The others include two London hospitals - the Royal Marsden, where cancer patients are treated, and Great Ormond Street for children - plus Centrepoint, which helps the homeless "rebuild their lives".

The Leprosy Mission, the National Aids Trust and English National Ballet will also benefit.

The concert was held on 1 July, which would have been the princess' 46th birthday.

About 63,000 people attended the event, which was broadcast to 140 countries.

Diana was killed in 1997 in a car collision in a tunnel in Paris. A public inquest is currently being conducted to determine whether the crash was an accident.

Dodi Fayed and the couple's chauffeur, Henri Paul, also died.

Mohamed Al Fayed, the father of Dodi, has maintained that the couple were murdered by British security services.

I think this was exactly what Lady Di would have wanted. I mean the charity money
