It was a scottish tarten dress. The person who wants to picture told me, it was hard to find, but she had seen it on the TV... Probably one of the last times she attended Braemar with Charles.
I think the her last Braemar appearance was 1989, when she wore the light grey plaid dress with gold buttons down the front. It is very similar in style to the light blue dress she wore when she shook hands with the lepers. Someday I will find a picture of it for you. The hat she wore featured the same tartan as the dress.

Here we go, one for every year except 1984 (when Harry was born) I think that 1989 was the last year that Diana went to the Braemer Games.

Diana at Ascot

It's Ascot week. What better time to start a thread on -- what else? -- Diana at Ascot.

To start things off, here she is on her very first appearance, June 16, 1981, during the engagement.

Day 2 or day 3 of Ascot, 1981 (I find conflicting dates for these 2 days -- anybody know which was Wed. and which Thurs?)

I remember seeing photos of this outfit at the time and saying how pretty Diana looked. My brother-in-law remarked, "She looks like a clown." I was offended on her behalf, but now, looking back, I gotta agree -- he was right.:p

That was a bad time for fashion. I don't like to remember her in those outfits because they seem made for a much older woman...or fashion impaired. I prefer Diana, the Vamp Years.

I like the peach outfit. I think she looks classy there.

However, I agree about the red outfit, it definitely was NOT her best!!

I wonder if people could contribute pictures of their favorite Diana Ascot outfits?? I liked the white dress with gray top coat that she also wore to her brother's wedding.

I will think of others later, I am sure!!

I don't recall all fashion being bad in the early 80s - this doesn't mean it wasn't, just that I don't recall it :) I do remember thinking she was often dressed oddly though. She wore a lot of frills and huge collars, and I don't remember anyone else wearing such things at the time.

I know, I know! I looooved the red outfit. Now I still like the colors, but it seems like a getup or a costume now, instead of an outfit.

Sadly the same can be said for a lot of my other favorites on this page and from the early years in general. I thought they were just beautiful then, but they have not withstood the test of time. Also, Diana was so pretty and fresh in those early years, the later vampish clothing and look seems so hard-edged to me.

Ascot, June 15, 1982. This was just six days before Diana gave birth to William.

I believe the peachy coloured outfit is June 17th and the red one is June 18th.:)

Thanks for the dates, Squidgy.

In 1983, Diana did not attend Ascot because she and Charles were in Canada that week.

In 1984, she was pregnant again.
