I know the quality of the following pictures is mediocre but I thought you would enjoy them. If anyone has better quality substitutes that would be great and I will delete these.

Lady Jean,
Thanks for that great collection of pictures! I am curious about the last one you posted, where she is coming down the stairs. She wore that dress in Canada or Australia in 83 and I am just wondering if she has her sleeves pushed up to her elbows. The original dress is long sleeved!

The second dress from the bottom is interesting. I am thinking that is when she first went barelegged in public. Am I correct?

Thanks for your help. And please keep posting!

Hmm, good questions. It looks to me like she just pushed up the sleeves on the yellow dress (although that looks uncomfortable.) I think the last time she wore a yellow coatdress w/ruffle at the neck in public (before 5/11) was April 19, and it definitely had long sleeves. The description in the Fashion Diary says "half-length" sleeves for the May 11 appearance - I don't know if they didn't have a clear picture either, or if the dress was altered, or if there were two of the same dress w/different sleeves. On the Canadian tour in June 1983 she wore a long sleeved one. What do you think?
Yes, the peach dress was supposedly the first time she went bare-legged. Once she started she never stopped, she was frequently that way!
As usual I'm digging around for more pictures. Those were the cream of the crop so far. Thanks for the compliments. :)

Lady Jean,

In case you're still wondering about the photo in your Post #77 at Blenheim Palace: This was a chamber music concert on November 1, 1981. That was the evening of the same day as the christening of Lord and Lady Romsey's son Nicholas. Squidgy has a photo from the christening on the Diana's Godchildren thread (Post #41).

What I find interesting is that both outfits Diana wore that day are dark purple -- the aubergine velvet suit for the christening, and the striped purple taffeta gown for the concert.

Umbrellagirl, Excellent info, thank you. Now what I find most interesting is she wore the aubergine suit to the christening so soon after its appearance on the tour of Wales on Oct 29!

Yes, you're right. From Thursday to Sunday -- only three days later!

That suit was one of her very favorites. She wore it over and over again in the early years.

I think it was so pretty in Wales. She just looked like a fairy tale Princess!! The collar really set it off.

Wasn't the dress off the peg, too? If that is true, that is so amazing. I am surprised that no one ever showed up in the same outfit!

You know looking back at these photos it is remarkable how young Charles looked. You expected Diana to look that young but never Charles.

He was 33 years old when they married and that seemed so old at the time but he looked much younger than 33. Now I'm several years older than that so 33 seems positively young to me now!

Your soo right Ysbel. Looking back at those pictures Charles looked very young and had a full head of hair back then.
