i must say back in the 80's the lady were dressing like you should dress for a polo match, today these ladies dress like they are going to a nightclub or a party.

Corazon, I think you meant to thank Umbrellagirl who created this post and has provided such lovely pictures, or maybe Squidgy who also posted some great photos.

May 24 or 25, 1986 (date from Canadiana)
The start of another year of polo.

Another example of Diana's perfect coordination even in the most casual outfits: the two-tone navy and white shoes.

Post #162, first pic
Umbrellagirl, we are on the same wave length here! This is one of my all-time favourite pictures too. Kind of funny eh, considering you can't even see Diana's face?

I'm going to indulge myself & post a few additional photos from Nov. 12 1985. I thought Diana looked exceptionally stunning that day! And I always loved this "Kanga" dress designed by one of Charle's ex-girlfriends, the late LadyTryon.

Polo, June 8, 1986.

What can I say? Coordination gone wild.

June 16, 1986. This was William's first visit to polo. It was just five days before his fourth birthday.

In the b/w photo, Major Ferguson and William demonstrate two different ways of getting to the other side of a fence.

June 17, 1986, after Ascot.
I could find only these 2 photos of Diana at polo on this day, and when I saw them I burst out laughing. I'm sorry, but there's Diana in her elegant little suit -- and then there's Fergie.



Both photos: Tim Graham/Getty Images

According to Canadiana's list of dates, Diana also attended polo after Ascot on June 19, wearing that green polka-dot jacket.

I've been unable to locate any photos of that occasion (Ascot, yes, but polo afterwards, no). Does anybody have one? Thanks.
