Diana, Princess of Wales (1961 - 1997)

'Diana, the very model of a modern princess style icon, friend of the glamorous and famous, and charity patron extraordinaire.'

Diana’s beauty, youth and glamour meant that for many she was the perfect image of a princess.  Public fascination began when she became engaged to Prince Charles and she was soon established as a style icon, whose clothes were endlessly scrutinized and imitated. 

Diana moved to Kensington Palace soon after her marriage and it remained her home until her tragic death in Paris in 1997.  Her sudden death shocked the world and Kensington Palace quickly became the focus of public mourning in London.  Thousands of people left flowers outside the palace’s golden gates and queued to sign books of condolence.
