Does anyone know what color this outfit is? Is it the black version of the pink suit she wore earlier?

Thank you!

I think that photo was from Festival Of Remembrance on 10th Nov. 1984. She had a black outfit with a ruffled white shirt peaking over the collar. You can make out the red poppy on her left lapel.

That's the information I have too Incas.

Here is the only colour picture I have of Diana on that day (photo: Hulton Getty). I'm assuming it's a dress, not a suit. Diana usually wore a dress to this event. I would love to see a full length colour photo ...

No. This was taken in November, 1984-Harry was almost two months old. It's the American method of posting dates: 11/08/84 means November 8, 1984 instead of August 11, 1984. :-)

thanks for the answer, in my country the date is date/month/year

Diana looked even more beautiful with long hair, in my humble opinion, but she was always beautiful anyway.

To me Diana, princess Of Wales looked beautiful with short or long hair some people can't play it off but the people's Princess plays very well and that this are the first pictures seeing the late Princess with long hair all the times I saw her on tv she had short hair.

Hi, guys, I've lurked here a long time! Now I'm going to post! :) I always thought Diana had the most gorgeous hair - thick and with lots of body - and when she wore it super short it just wasn't the best. These pics show how beautiful she could look with it longer. Thanks!

Welcome to the forums! I always wanted Diana to grow her hair out and was sad when she cut it off so soon. She had pretty hair and thought she looked great when it was long. I suppose long hair isn't very practical for a hard working princess though many of them seem to be able to do it nowadays.

Diana's hair was beautiful:thick and healthy looking and had nice shade of blond. But I prefer her in short hair.

I don't remember her with long hair. It suited her. Thanks for all the wonderful pics.
Was this the only time she had long hair?

The two long-hair periods were at the end of 1984 and when she was a teenager.

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)
Do someone has another photo of Diana at her sister Sarah's wedding (photo of the message 29)?

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.
For a wedding taking place early in the day, it would not be unknown for little bridesmaids to change out of their official dress & wear another one. Perhaps that what she meant. Or perhaps Diana was talking about another wedding where she was not actually a bridesmaid.

On the other post talking about little Charles Spencer being a "ring-bearer" - we don't normally have those in the UK, as the Best Man brings the wedding ring(s) to the service. Charles would have been a Page Boy.
