It looks to me the same occasion, judging by the necklace and the children in the background.

I would say it's the same occasion too. As Incas points out there are lots of children in your picture Umbrellagirl and one of Diana's engagements that day was to go to a Pre-school Centre.

Here's (a rather fuzzy) full length picture (Photo: Prive magazine) This picture always makes me laugh. There were obviously horses around that day!!





She didn't wear that dress often did she? There are pictures of her wearing it in June 1992 in the book "The Diana I knew" by Mary Robertson (Diana is posing with Mary & her children). I also have this picture from sometime in the summer of 1991. Here she is wearing different earrings from your pic Umbrellagirl and also no necklace. I would love to know the date or even the occasion, if anyone knows ...

Oh, now I remember it! She had a white blazer over it in the photo with the Robertsons, and I always assumed (for some reason) that it was a blouse!

Yep, that's the one. You're right, you couldn't see the dress too much in the picture. :)

Lady Jean,
You and your amazing memory and eye for detail again! I think you're right.

You're right Lady Jean - the cut does look very similar.

I recall seeing a picture of Kanga (Lady Tryon) in the blue version of the dress. I wonder if it was one of her designs. Diana did wear some of her dresses (for instance that blue/white dress that Lady Jean recently posted from the Live Aid concert)

Okay, for anyone who doesn't know the Robertson photos, here are two of them, taken at Kensington Palace on June 25, 1992. And I don't know why I thought it was a blouse. I totally forgot about the pic where they're seated and the dress can be clearly seen.

I just had to head over to the Australian Picture Library, where Incas found her photo, and I found another cute pic from that day in Birmingham.
