The weekend before the wedding.

Saturday, July 25, the day she broke down in tears.
(Note the pretty lilac shoes, the same ones she wore with the striped outfit on June 16 -- See Post #29 above.)

By the next year, 1982, Diana was pregnant. On April 3, she and Charles were at the Grand National, which I think is a steeplechase race (horses jumping over hedges and all that). It's not polo, but this photo is too great not to post.

May 2, 1982, first polo match of the season, I think.

Diana wore the koala sweater and dark red corduroys, and her back seemed to be bothering her.

Check out the picture where Charles is patting her on the head.

Would this chinese style jacket be the same one that she wore on tour in Australia or New Zealand? She carried a chubby pink purse with it.

Also, do you happen to have any pictures of that sundress? I don't think I have ever seen it!

Thanks for all your info. I used to think I knew lots about her clothes but you TOTALLY put me in the shade!:p

I love the overalls. Diana looked elegant in the most casual outfits. And I love the way she wears her sunglasses on top of her head, about 15 years before everyone else started doing it. She looks so stylish.

Welcome to the Forums Alexrich39!:)

And thanks Canadiana for those dates.

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?

Nice photo Umbrellagirl! Charles & Diana seemed to be getting along very well that day. It was a joy to see. Here are a few more pics (including one of Diana with her maternal grandmother, Lady Fermoy).

It was also worn on April 21 1983 in New Zealand as Tenngirl notes.:) If you have that In Public View book, there is a picture of her wearing it there.

I remember reading somewhere that the little boy is Fergie's half-brother, that is, the son of Major Ferguson and his second wife. But then his name would be Ferguson, not Danvers. I don't remember the source, and I'm not sure. Maybe someone else knows positively?

Sarah's half-brother Andrew was born in September 1978, according to Ingrid Seward's book on Sarah published in 1991.

POLO 1986

May 24 or 25 (not completely sure here but as polo matches generally sat or sun guess it's one or the other) navy sweater with large circular silver satin applique design on the front worn over cream pinstriped pants

June 8: white sweather with red band on arm, white & red polka dot skirt (this was the bobby sox outfit)
June16: white center pleated loose style blouse with opened neck and rolled up sleeves tucked into red & white gingham pants
June 17: polo after ascot (cream silk gaberdine pinstriped suit, peplum jacket
June 19: polo after ascot (apple green moire outfit, polka dot tunic style jacket with bk belt, worn over a plain black skirt
June 24: lipstick pink sweater worn over blue denium jeans, navy patterned headscarf ( hated this so out of character for her to have worn that made me wonder if she wasn't trying to make head scarves more trendy, it surely didn't work thankfully, either that or a very bad hair day but a baseball cap would have been so much better)
June 28; long white jacket and black skirt, bk belt
July 12: white wrap over floral jacket worn over a long pleated teal blue skirt
July 27: white jacket (same as june 28) and teal blue skirt (same as above)
