Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain

Princess Diana Memorial Fountain is in the banks of the beautiful Serpentine lake, in Hyde Park.

When I first heard about this memorial, I was expecting a fancy jet type fountain that rhythmically dances, something like musical fountains.

I was a bit disappointed to see this flat flowing fountain. On second thoughts, I was convinced that this quite affair is a befitting memorial for the graceful princess and suitable place for peaceful relaxation. The signboard also declared this memorial as a place for 'quite enjoyment'.


Kids and adults were happily dipping their feet in that granite fountain!

We had good time, but one part of me was constantly thinking of that sweet Lady, who captured millions of hearts, and the tragic accident.

When one thinks of Princess Diana, one could not help but think of grandiose and elegance so I can relate to the disappointment. Nevertheless, it looks like a very nice place to just relax.

I wonder if it was a "flat" fountain, because she was known for her love of children? So they could play in it...
