What do you think of the concepts of recreational grief or mourning sickness as used to describe the reaction to Diana's death. Social contagion rather than genuine emotion.

I think social contagion had a lot to do with it .
I doubt much of it was grief for Diana, but an excuse to release pent up emotion.

Interesting - what pent up emotion? POersonal, general or specific?
