I'm just going to add a few polo pics from July 1 1984 (Diana's 23rd birthday).

But I've been unable to find pictures for polo on June 16 and June 26, 1988. According to Canadiana's list, on June 16 Diana attended polo after Ascot wearing that dove-gray tailcoat. We've all seen it at Ascot, but I've not found a photo at polo.

And on June 26, according to Canadiana, Diana wore a "navy 3/4 length blazer over white round neck blouse and navy & white check skirt, wide navy belt." I don't remember ever seeing this outfit.


Can anyone help?

Thanks very much.
here's the pictures june 26'88 ONLY one I have of that polo match

source my scrapbook Today Np

don't know who the little girl is just thrilled to get a cuddle from Diana I'd say.

Thank you, Canadiana, for that rare photo, and for the fact that you know the date.

Doesn't Wills look cute in his matching khaki shirt and shorts -- sort of a safari outfit.

The photos from this day are familiar images of Diana at her best. Here are just a few to refresh our memories.
I did find one really different picture, where Diana had taken off her jacket.

I too thought Diana looked great the day she wore the yellow overalls. Here's a few more pics. Does anyone know who the little boy is that she is playing with? I have a clipping that says his name is Danvers, but that's all. Is he one of Fergie's relatives?

Photos: A Hussein

Hello. I am the little boy in the photo. I am amazed that after all these years, this photo has been dug up. My name is Danvers {last name deleted - Elspeth} and I am now 30 years old and work in the City of London as a lawyer - you can Google me if you are interested. I am not related to any royals. I simply wheedled my way onto Diana's lap and ended up with my photo in the papers and in magazines around the world. My parents refused to allow any follow up publicity, as they thought it would be bad for me and I think they were right.

PS - At the time no one was interested in Fergie. She was simply the daughter of Major Ronnie Ferguson, Charles' polo manager, so when she married Prince Andrew, it was even funnier that I had been photographed sitting in the middle of them all.

Danvers, Welcome and thank you so much for posting!! Great to "meet" you. Those are some of my favorite photos of Diana prior to the wedding.

I love the picture with Diana putting her head on the rail. She was just so spontaneous.

I loved looking at all of the photos. I am amazed at how well organized the photos are. You folks really did a great job. What a pity the Princess is gone.

Hi Danvers! Thanks so much for identifying yourself. I always wondered who that little boy was. I remember when these photos were first published, I was just so enchanted. It was rare at that time (& even still is today, I think) to see a royal acting so normal & carefree. I guess you brought out the best in Diana. Thanks so much for your part in creating some of my favourite early Diana images.

You would have only have been 4 or 5 years old, so maybe you don't remember much, but, like the others, I would be interested in hearing about any further information you have from this day.

I'll see if I can dig up a few more photos from this day.

When was Diana's last trip to the polo? And does anyone have any pictures of this (in retrospect, quite sad) day?
