I have newspaper and magazine clippings scrapbooked, right from the announcement of the engagement in 1981. I was 14.

I have a couple of hundred books, including the dresses catalogue which I bought before the actual auction. Christies even sent me a list of the results.

I think the most treasured items I have are the photographs I took of Diana at the Savoy Hotel on her 30th birthday.

My most treasured item is a Princess Diana doll with her wedding gown on. I know I treasure it the most because my son who was 6 at the time went into the toy store with his father to purchase a toy for himself and came out with that doll for me. This was right after she had died when there was so much memorabilia being sold. Of course he was not alive when she married, yet he chose that particular doll, boxed up, for me. Imagine my surprise when they arrived home with "my" present! To this day, I have never opened it and it sits on top of my bookcase which is packed full of many diverse Princess Diana books, magazines, tea cups, etc. My son, in his own small way, was trying to comfort me, I'm very blessed. I think Diana would have liked that.

I have 2 books on Diana (Rosalind Coward's and Sarah Bradford's), it's not much but I love them even if many people the same already. I prefer to buy some books that are not full of gossips, so there's only a few I trust. My precious Diana 'thing', is my picture collection I have on my computer. I've more than 2 thousands of pics and these are really important to me, in particular the rare ones. Not very special but that's my stuff.

It sounds like we got it around the same time. I bought it shortly after her funeral.
I also got the book of collected essays by her friends, family, associates from her charites, etc. the proceeds of which went to the Diana Memorial Fund. It has essays from people Rosa Monckton, Lady Annabel Goldsmith, Tina Brown, Richard Kay, Anthony Holden, Ingrid Seward, Lady Cosima Somerset....
I had another picture book for awhile, photos by Tim Graham that came in October 1997.
These books I don't have anymore. I was cleaning house a few years ago and decided to resell them on Amazon.

Smile My Collection

This is just what will fit in the bookcase.

I have several years worth of Royalty and Majesty Magazines. As well as the "Young Royals" magazines that were only in publication for a short time. But they are all in a closet! LOL! As well as 2 Franklin Mint dolls (and outfits).
But believe it or not, mine is still a relatively small collection, I have friends with LOTS more!!

We've been contacted by a BBC journalist looking to interview someone with a collection of Diana memorabilia. It would be helpful if this person was in the UK, but it's possible that they could deal with someone in the USA or elsewhere in the world if need be.

If anyone has an interesting collection of Diana memorabilia, preferably including stuff other than just books, and is interested in taking part in this, please PM me with some details.

Thanks.

And, Iowabelle, I hope that article is coming along...
