Is the Merton portrait still hanging in Cardiff City Hall? I hope so.

I thought the portrait was moved that one time to accomodate the Cardiff charter, as it was an event celebrating its anniversary, not specifically for Charles or Camilla's sake.

And I think this is a picture of her wearing the same shirt again. This time it is worn with a skirt and styled with the sleeves rolled up.

Thank you so much for providing these! I just read that she sat for the painting once in Kensington Palace, and four more times at Merton's studio.

You're welcome Lady Jean!

I wish more of the portrait painters would have shared with us their photographs. We've only seen a handful of them so far. And the ones we've seen, I think, have been excellent. They seem to be as skilled behind the camera as they are with a paintbrush.

A reminder this is the Portaits: Diana thread.
It is not the place to say "happy birthday" or "I miss you".

To keep the thread on topic posts not relating to the portraits will be removed.

thanks,
Warren

Wonderful, absolutely wonderful photos. There isn't a wrong photo of her. It doesn't exist. She was very, very photogenic.
I'm glad to see new photos of her.:)

:) I too love this portrait and the gown she wore. I would love to know how heavy it was?
I love the one's of Diana in yellow also. There are quite a lot of pictures here I have never seen before, thanks to all of you for sharing.

I like the way her gown contrasts in style so greatly from the other ladies'!
