YWYWTBYN: Rest in Peace

June 19th, 2006 // 4 Comments

After a prior week of celebration, things have recently taken a sad turn.

Death has visited both the royal and socialite communities.

Usually talked about in the news for their antics, the princes William and Harry gathered with their father and Camilla on Friday to grieve the loss of Camilla’s father, Major Bruce Shand. An estimated 150 people appeared to honor the decorated war veteran. After a long period of illness, he passed away. The former cavalry officer lived with his daughter, Annabelle, in his last years. Major Bruce Shand had previously battled cancer.

A real-life murder mystery is still being investigated within Australia regarding the death of Gold Coast socialite Dianne Brimble in 2002. Brimble was found dead and naked in a Pacific Sky cruise cabin. Her body contained a lethal dose of the drug “Fantasy”. When an associate attempted to speak of the tragedy, Georgie Gillings, the former Pacific Sky cruise director, told the man to “shut your mouth” causing many to become suspicious of her behavior.

Please take a moment to mourn those who have passed before going back to your busy lives.

Thank you.

    Get your facts right – Dianne Brimble was not a socialite, she was just an average, working-class middle aged mum who, while holiday with family and friends, was drugged and allegedly interferred with by up to 8 men while she was unconcious who proceeded to take photos of her while doing so. Bit of -important- omitted detail there. Actually a very sick and humiliating crime to an average mum on holiday

    Where do you get your stories from? As someone stated, Diane Brimble was no socialite. Just a mother on holiday who was drugged and gang raped by a pack of pigs on a cruise ship. The poor lady had never used drugs in her life.
    With all the press lately about the filthy things her attackers have said/done to her, you would think you’d have noticed these facts.
