Sure, it seems like patronizing noblesse oblige in retrospect, but in 1984, AIDS was considered a plague and those stricken with HIV were shunned. At the time, some healthcare workers would not even touch AIDS patients, so it was a big deal when Diana did.

Others are creeped out by how much people still obsess over her.

I can't understand why people care so much about Princess Diana. Everyone I know who knows who she was seems to think that she's some big deal. She was a not-particularly-bright girl who happened to be born into a family that lives off of the British tax payers.
Some people point out the fact that she did charity work. Well good for her; it's not like she's a freaking princess or anything. It's not like her only job is to have good PR.
