Lady Jane was born in 1957 and this picture was taken in 1978, so she must have been about 21 years old.

No. Charles dated Diana's other sister, Lady Sarah (Spencer) McCorquodale. She married a cousin of their much-hated stepmother, Raine.

Jane put Diana in a really bad bridesmaid dress! (I know, it was the time, the 1970s.)

Yes, it is a pretty unflattering dress. But as you say Iowabelle, we have to take into account the fashions at the time. I think the dress is Laura Ashley, and in the 70s, their designs were pretty popular among the upper class in Great Britain.

Diana looks like she is a Flower Girl in these pictures (& I think that is her brother Charles with her - perhaps as the Ring Boy).

Does anyone know when these pictures were taken and at whose wedding?

It is true that Diana did hate Raine for a long time, but just before her death, she made peace with Raine and was often seen in her company. They often lunched together. Raine is responsible for bringing Mohammed Al-Fayed back into Diana's life that fateful year. Diana's father knew Mr. Al-Fayed, and Raine worked for Harrods in some capacity. The Al-Fayeds had been in and out of Diana's life through the years at Polo, Charity Events, and Diana's shopping needs at Harrods.

I wonder what would have happened if she had not taken that summer cruise on the Al-Fayed yacht with William and Harry that summer. I believe Al-Fayed used that trip to foist his son on Diana to stir up the establishment who wouldn't give him British citizenship. Al-Fayed has always been greedy for the spotlight. His greed cost him his son and the world of the "People's Princess."

Is Raine the woman who died recently? Everyone made a big deal about her not liking her mother. Did Harry and Will attend her funeral, I don't remember?

Raine is still alive and is on the Board of Directors for Harrods. I think you are thinking of Diana's mother - Frances Shand-Kydd. She died on June 3 2004. And yes, Harry and William did attend her funeral in Scotland. (See photo below from Corbis)

Maybe they wouldn't give him citizenship because he tried to take the Chief of Ross's identity. (meaning he refused to take the shield off the Ross Castle, it toke 30 years and they went to court about it)

I think Diana looked much nicer in the second bridemaids dress.

Ulik, that is the only time that I know of that Diana was a bridesmaid. She definately was not in Sarah & Andrew's wedding party. (see http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...chmentid=68250 for a picture of the party)

I think she was a guest, not a bridesmaid; I saw a photo somewhere of her at Sarah's wedding, and she didn't look to be wearing a bridesmaid's dress. It's much more common in the UK to have child bridesmaids, so maybe Sarah didn't want any teens in her wedding party.
