Decorating the palace... Diana's life in wallpaper: Iconic photos turned into sketches as part of royal residence's £12m restoration

Quote:
She was the most photographed woman of her time – but this is a rather more off-the-wall way of remembering her life. Sketches based on iconic images of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, have been turned into wallpaper inside the royal residence that was once her home. The display is part of a £12million restoration of Kensington Palace in London.
I simply hate those "wallpapers"; they look horrible. They may be meant to have some sort of cartoonish look, but that is just ridiculous. Could someone explain why is there a cow in her wedding picture? Or why does she look desperate, ugly and/or anorexic in every single sketch?
One of the tackiest tributes ever.

I know; some of them are very haunting in look, the shadows around her eyes certainly give that effect. And she definitely had a more robust figure when she wore the black strapless evening gown rather than that wan image. I think the cow that you're referring to, Artemisia, is actually a lamb. Maybe an allusion to an innocent young girl on her wedding day?

I thought it was a calf, bur you are right, it does resemble a lamb much more.
Either way, I really do dislike this "work of art". It just looks really tacky to me.

I'd rather see a wall of her photos than these waif-like images.

Yeah, that wallpaper is just plain weird. The idea is great, but how it was executed isn't.

Apparently I'm in the minority ... But I like the wallpaper, and was hoping that they made the image available in another form (scarf, wrapping paper) at the KP gift shop. It's a bit kitschy but still seems fun

I'm with you!
I just toured KP, and I'm very disappointed with the new setup.
As I told the Baroness of Books, I found it disorienting and confusing; it was better before, imho! Or they might have left the Enchanted Palace exhibit intact- really anything would be better.

Nothing was labeled or identified properly; what was the purpose of those boxes in the Queen's bedchamber, or the spice drawers in the King's?
Who were all those people in the photographs? (Yes, I recognized a few, like Queen Victoria, but the others?)

The court gossip was intriguing, but not very practical with such crowds of visitors, since you have to be sitting right on top of the microphones to distinguish what the voices are saying.

What does everyone else think?

From Bob Dylan to Beethoven, Princess Diana's eclectic childhood record collection goes under the hammer
Quote:
Princess Diana's eclectic taste in music has been revealed with the emergence of her childhood record collection. Vinyls featuring classical composers such as Mozart and Beethoven are interspersed with albums from U.S. rockers the Eagles and Bob Dylan. The set of 19 LPs have gone on sale via an online auction site PFC auctions, which is based in Guernsey.

From car boot sale to palace: Diana's long-lost record collection saved by the MoS - and returned to her delighted sons
Quote:
Discovered at a car boot sale eight years ago and put up for auction, they are deeply personal treasures, which is why The Mail on Sunday decided to step in by buying them and returning them to their rightful place – with her sons, William and Harry. And they have been well received. The Princes’ spokesman said: ‘They are very grateful to The Mail on Sunday for retrieving the records and returning them. They were a cherished part of their late mother’s possessions, music being a critical part of her enjoyment of life.'
That's very nice of DM. Too bad they felt the need to publicise it, but still very nice.

It is a nice gesture of DM.

BTW, it is always said Duran Duran was Diana's favorite pop, but I read an article in which Diana herself said that was a misunderstanding, although she liked Duran Duran's music, but she was not a fan. She said her favorite was Dire Straits.

Here is the article
Gadsden Times - Google News Archive Search

I tend to believe this article. To me Duran Duran's music would be too loud for Diana. Dire Straits' rock is much softer which would be Diana's taste, in my opinion.

Very nice stuff indeed. The items are pretty much historical. Personally, I would keep it.

'Do-not-publish' Diana photo up for auction

The photo of Diana pictured in a skiing chalet was taken during a holiday in the French Alps in March 1979, after Diana had accepted an invitation to join her friend Mary-Ann-Stewart on holiday.
