July 12: white wrap over floral jacket worn over a long pleated teal blue skirt

Canadiana, is this July 12? I found this photo a while ago on the website of Peter Grace, who is apparently a polo instructor, but there was no date given.

Wait, there are 2 very similar jackets! Both are quilted and have mandarin collars. Polo, May 29, 1983, was what I think of as the pink-&-blue striped quilted jacket. (Worn also at Wimbledon, 1981, and in Canada June 28, 1983.)
At polo May 29: unbuttoned, shoulder bag
Canada June 28: buttoned, clutch bag

It was the other jacket (printed with tiny flowers and edged in blue) that she wore Apr. 3 and Apr. l5, 1983, in Australia and Apr. 21, '83 in New Zealand.
Apr. 3 (Easter service) over blue-green dress, with light blue brimmed straw hat
Apr. 15 jacket with matching printed skirt, with saucer hat
Apr. 21 I have no pic, the Fashion Diary in Story of Diana says worn over an off-white dress and with a blue pillbox hat (maybe same hat as Apr. 15?)

Umbrellagirl, this is the outfit that she wore in New Zealand on Apr. 21 1983. For some reason, there aren't too many pictures from this day. I have another picture from Ebay (which I can't post because I don't know the photographer) & this one from In Public View, and that's it.

Umbrellagirl & Lady Jean, thanks for your thoughts on who the little boy is. I guess it will remain a mystery ...

God, the pregnancy dresses were pretty awful at that time. Polka-dotted TENTS. So unflattering!

OK, Squidgy, it looks like the Fashion Diary got it wrong for Apr. 21 when it said the flowered jacket and blue pillbox hat. I take it that on your eBay photo you can see more detail and definitely identify this as the striped quilted mandarin-collar jacket.

And that's not the hat I was expecting to see! This hat is the same one she wore to the Sony plant with her pink coat while pregnant in Apr. 1982. It was so great the way she was always recombining her clothes and accessories.

I know I know (hand raised) ok I got np clipping of that and it says the little boy who's 5 years old is Danvers Baillieu son of local farmer Mr. Colin Baillieu who runs the local pony club polo team.

Yes, in the "ebay" picture you can definately see she is wearing the pink/blue jacket with the white pleated skirt.

The Fashion Diary is a good source of information, but it's only a starting point. They definately got much wrong.
  • the Diary says she attended the premiere of "For Your Eyes Only" on Mar 3. It was really June 24th
  • the Diary says she went to the Sandown Races on March 25. It was the 13th.
  • the Diary says she attended the Welsh Guards dinner on May 27. It was really June 1st.
  • the Diary says Nicholas Soames' wedding was June 1st. It was June 4
  • it left out the Mar 17th & June 9th state banquets & a May 22nd reception
... and that's just errors on the first page.
