Oops! Sorry that I misunderstood you Ulik:o.

Yes, like Elspeth said, Diana was a guest only at her sister Sarah's wedding. Below is a picture from Sarah's wedding (I believe the date is May 17 1980). Diana is in the middle, with her mother Frances and her grandmother, Lady Fermoy beside her.

(Sorry for the poor quality - it is from an old newspaper)

thanks Squidgy for looking it...so it was her only time as bridesmaid. i thought being a pretty little girl she must had been asked to be bridesmaid many times.

continuing the thread, as Diana as a wedding guest, is also marvellous :)

....what a hat she wore at sarah's :) :) and it was only 1 year before her own wedding!

Yes, it was quite a hat Ulik! Sort of like the hats she wore in her first few years as Princess of Wales - when she liked to have lots of veiling covering her eyes.

I have made a liar out of myself because I did find one more picture where Diana is in the wedding party. She is 4 years old (circa 1965). It's interesting because 12 year old Princess Anne was also in the wedding party (she is the picture on the right). Sorry for the picture quality - it is from an old Paris Match magazine.

Squidgy, whose wedding was that?

Funny, I've never heard of them being in the same wedding party -- but probably not unusual since their parents ran with the same crowd.

Anne must have been one of the senior bridesmaids since she's so much older than Diana.

Sorry Iowabelle, the article doesn't say - It would of course likely have to be someone in the Upper Classes, since Anne was there. Does anyone know?

You didn't say that the little girl on the left was Diana, didn't you Squidgy? It seems that Anne was bridesmaid for many times, more than Diana was. Should we change the thread into Anne as Bridesmaid?

Ha! Ha! Maybe we should. Being a princess, I'm sure Anne was very much in demand on the wedding circuit.:)

I'm sure she didn't! I wonder what they had to bribe her with, in order to get her to wear that dress - maybe a new horse?:p

But Anne would not have been 12 when Diana was 4.

Yes, of course you are right Selrahc4. Anne was born in Aug 1950 and Diana in July 1961, so almost 11 years separates them - which means that if Diana was 4, Anne would have been approx. 15.

I just noticed that while in the main heading of the article, it says Diana was 4, in small print later on, it says she was 3, which means Anne would have been 13/14 which looks seems more reasonable looking at the picture.

I think Anne looks far younger than 13/14 in that picture, though.

Here is a link to a photo of her Sep 18, 1964 when she would have been 14 at Constantine and Anne-Marie's wedding (Princess Anne is the bridesmaid at the lower left-hand corner).

Yes, something isn't matching up. I am only going by what the article says in Paris Match (which of course often makes mistakes). My French is not good I admit, so I'll let someone else translate the caption for the photo:

"Diana avait 3 ans, la princesse Anne en avait 12. Les deux petites filles etaient ensemble demoiselles d'honneur et ne faisaient encore que porter les traines officielles." (sorry, my keyboard doesn't do accents)

Perhaps that is not a picture of Diana, but rather one of her sister Jane, who was born in 1957

You know, I believe you are right. It looks more like one of her sisters...Jane or Sarah. Oh well, wouldn't be the first time a photo was mis-labeled.

What, the press get something wrong?

But, I must take responsibility, since I was the one who posted the picture without questioning if the age differences between Diana and Anne matched up. Sorry to anyone who has been led astray.:(:(:(

But it's so hard to tell, Squidgy. Anne's got her head down so we can't tell how old she is, and the child doesn't look like Diana but Diana looked much different when she was very young.

Since you're taking responsibility, though, we should pelt you with chocolate chip cookies! Yum.

Ha! Ha! That's one punishment I would definately look forward to!

Thanks for cheering me up Iowabelle.:):)
