Princess Di Warms to U.S.

LONDON -- Princess Diana returned home from Washington on Monday and one news report said the warmth of the welcome she got in the United States convinced her she can make a new life there.


The Daily Mail said Diana's Washington visit has been a triumph for her. "The city's movers and shakers, ambassadors, businessmen and high society figures scrambled for places at lunches and dinners in her honor," it said.


It said her reception there has strengthened her inclination toward settling, in time, in the United States. It quoted unnamed friends as saying she likes the egalitarianism of American life and "the way that Americans take you for what you are."


Her four-day U.S. visit included a lunch at the British Embassy on Saturday. The other guests included President Clinton's wife Hilary Clinton and Tipper Gore, wife of Vice President Al Gore.


The trip enabled Diana to be away from London during publication Sunday of more excerpts from an authorized biography of Charles.


The Sunday Times published a second installment of the biography by broadcaster Jonathan Dimbleby amid generally hostile comment.
