Princess Diana 'keep her memory alive' group was one of the most chaotic corners on the internet

Princess Diana 'keep her memory alive' group was one of the most chaotic corners on the internet

Sometimes, the internet can be a really weird place. Other times it can be wonderful. But one product of the online world proved to be simultaneously weird and wonderful, namely, the ‘Princess Diana – Keep Her Memory Alive’ Facebook group.

This Princess Diana Facebook group strived to do what it said on the tin, keep her memory alive. And technically, with the amount of traction it gained, it did just that. Although, it was kinda for all the wrong reasons…

It gained cult-status after trolls began posting in the group. Some of these, uh, unique posts gained the page a great deal of attention.

People who were less interested in Princess Diana and more interested in the free comedy began joining the group after being alerted to its chaotic contents.

One example of the group’s posts was re-shared to Twitter in 2019. In it, a member shared a poem they wrote about Princess Diana’s passing in primary school.

It read:

“Why you cry?”

“Because of Lady Di”

“What happened?”

“Lady Die”

“Oh no, I’m sad”

“My dripping eyes”

“Lady Di”

“Lady die”.

I think it’s fair to attribute that poem a one of a kind status. And Twitter users were suitably tickled and wanted more. And so its popularity grew, as did its reputation as a s**t-posting group.

Another user shared the antics of Princess Di’s tribute page to Twitter in 2019.

A member uploaded a photo to the group with the caption: “Our princess stunning”.

But fellow users of the group were less than pleased with the image choice, with one user commenting: “No it isn’t. It is Clare Balding. Stupid f*****g t**t!”

Yet the original poster remained calm, insisting: “No it’s a photo generated to show what she’d look like now I think she’s stunning.”

And, in case you were wondering, the photo was in fact of Clare Balding.

But perhaps the most unexpected turn in the ‘Keep Her Memory Alive’ saga only occurred recently, where things just got plain weird.

The post led with a distressed ‘final warning to all members’. And it's after this where it takes an exceptionally weird turn.

It continues: “Please DO NOT, for the LOVE OF GOD, announce to the group when you are going to masturbate. This has been a reoccurring issue, and I’m not sure why some people have such under developed social skills that they think that a group full of mostly strangers would need to know that”.

And just like that, the group disappeared into oblivion. Needless to say, fans were distraught and believed that the page had been taken down.

One Twitter user reacted to the discovery: “Princess Diana – Keep Her Memory Alive (NO TROLLS ALLOWED) page has been deleted from Facebook, this might just be the saddest day of my life. That page gave me so much serotonin”.

Meanwhile another said; “The group has been taken down by Facebook. Heaven just gained a new angel”.

LADbible have reached out to Facebook for comment.

So sadly, all we can do now is keep the group's memory alive in old screenshots.
