I totally admired this formal royal portrait of her....I think this portrait of her sums her up in many ways...regal, approachable, dignified yet simple, beautiful, young, vibrant and ready to embrace the world from the ground up....(I think these same words describe Prince William too).

I agree pinkie40, it's a very symbolic image. I think the Daily Mirror took it as their front cover for the tribute issue.

You know, the silly thing is all the daft people who say/think she was wrapped in a sheet!! She was, of course, actually wearing the fabulous Azagury strapless ivory silk satin gown, with the embroidered bodice, without it's short bolero jacket.

Maybe the boys gave/loaned it their Uncle? Who knows....
I'm sure they have plenty of beautiful images of their mother anyway....

One seller on eBay actually had it listed as "nude Diana."

The dress was by Victor Edelstein, not Azagury.

OH Wow! Thanks for getting me to the beautiful, beautiful pictures of the beautiful Diana by Terence Donovan. I get off today from this forum feeling very satisfied. This has made my day! She was truly a wonderful lady and I still miss her when I see her pictures and her boys.

LOL, yes, I do, but it is a two page span in a book that was released shortly after the Royal Wedding....I will see if I can get it scanned...may take a couple of days.......because the book itself is coffee table size!

That is a rare portrait of Diana. I can't say I like her in the photo that much.

Yes, not my favorite either. But the idea was really good IMO.

I believe there's a similar one of HM. I'm not fond of them as they appear too 'harsh,' for lack of a better word.

Can someone post a picture of the Doug Anderson painting? I hadn't noticed it earlier in this thread ( some of the links don't work) or the Theo Platt painting, I have also not noticed it on this thread. I don't think I've ever seen or heard of that one. My favorite picture portrait of Diana is a picture by Tim Graham from the mid-late 1980s where she wears that black velvet dress and diamond earings and the picture is shadowy, and the backdrop to the picture is a painting with a greenish color. She looks so regal in that portrait, not like a celebrity. Can anyone post that picture of her? It's so haunting.
