KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- She was perhaps the world's most favorite member of the British royal family.  But despite her untimely death 16 years ago, Princess Diana has never left the hearts and minds of her many admirers.

The proof of that worldly obsession is the new bio-pic titled Diana that is based on the last two years of her life.  So who exactly was Princess Di and why are we still so captivated by her after all of these years?

Brenda Marks and Lynda Krupp with the local chapter of the Daughters of the British Empire were featured guests on Thursday's FOX 4 Morning Show.  They talked about the world's fascination with Princess Diana and how that focus has shifted to the woman who is now married to her son Prince William -- Princess Kate -- and how both of them will raise their son Prince George.

The local chapter of the Daughters of the British Empire is hosting an upcoming fundraiser -- the 28th Annual British Faire from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16 at the Lenexa Community Center located at 93rd and Pflumm in old town Lenexa.  Admission is $4.00 for adults and $1.00 for children.

NOTE:  The new film Diana will open in several local theaters on Friday.  Be sure to watch Friday's FOX 4 Morning Show as Russ and Shawn will appear to give their reviews of the movie.
