I think she was very pretty, even then.

Did Diana ever wear Karen Miller's- I think her clothes are so fantastic.

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."
hadn't John, Di's late father, told Mohamed Al Fayed to care for his daughter Diana, years be4e the fateful cruise?

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.:(:(:(
Princess Anne was indeed 14 at the time.

I can't c any 3 years old bridesmaid in the pic, anne was born in 1950, and she's there in the left corner, it's her, quite obvious, maybe they wanted to name Anne, but wrote Diana.

I just realized that the pictures I posted in post #32 of this thread of Anne (& likely Diana's sister Jane) were probably from the Duchess of Kent's wedding in 1961.

Wow I've never seen this picture (three generations of Spencer Women) before. I mean I've seen pix of Lady Diana at her sisters Sarah's wedding but not this one. Totally Awesome
Btw I'm new but love this forum it's just brilliant.

I've heard that before, that one of Diana's sisters was a bridesmaid for the Kent wedding. I believe it was Jane was born in 1957, and not Sarah (born 1955.) The girl in the photo looks very much like Jane.

Thanks for the confirmation Lady Jean.:) I had never heard before that one of the Spencer girls was in the Kent's wedding. I know that in her royal life, Diana was pretty close to the Duchess, but I had always assumed that they had only met when Diana started dating Charles, but it looks like the ties between the Spencers & the Kents go back quite a ways. I guess that the Duke of Kent & Diana's father were friends?

"The Country Life Book of the Royal Wedding" (1981) states that both Lady Jane and Princess Anne were bridesmaids at the Kent wedding, 6/8/61. Gordon Honeycombe's book on the Royal Wedding 1981 says that Jane is the Duke of KEnt's goddaughter.

I apologize if this is a bit off topic but I hope this resolves the bridesmaid question.

According to Penny Junor's "Diana Princess of Wales" (1983),

"Later that year, in 1969, Diana was a bridesmaid for the first time when her cousin Elizabeth Wake-Walker became a Duckworth-Chad at St. James, Piccadilly."

I think that's the event depicted in the lovely photos of young Diana provided by Squidgy on page 1 of this thread.

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

Thanks so much for the information Lady Jean. :)

Andrew Morton talks a bit about this wedding in his book, saying that it was a traumatic affair for Diana. Her parents had recently divorced. Apparently her father gave her a blue dress to wear to the wedding, while her mother gave her a green dress to wear. And she didn't know which one to wear. I would have thought that she would wear the dress that the bride had chosen for her. Perhaps Diana's memory failed her in this case & she was really thinking of another wedding.

does anyone know?
