In an effort to conserve bandwidth, the TRF Team is making some changes to how News and Picture threads are being organized, which you may have noticed is already being made in some forums.

From this point forward, please be aware that the only images that will be allowed to be attached directly to the forum will be those of current activities of the royals, which can be posted in the Current Events threads.

Instead of posting a dozen or more pictures, please try to select a few pictures that best describe the event/occasion. Aim to conserve. Think quality not quantity.

If you wish to post pictures of events that happened a few years ago or older images of various royals, please do so in the Picture threads via a private image hosting account such photobucket or imageshack.

Please note that older images which are attached directly to the forum are subject to removal by an Administrator or SuperModerator without notice to the member.

Thank you for your co-operation on this matter so that we can all continue to enjoy images of our favourite royals.

The TRF Team

Google. you can go to search engins and find Diana sites they usually have alot of pictures. Sometimes you can scan pics out of magazines.

I have never seen a photo of the dress she wore when she went over to Dodi's apartment but would also be interested.

I have been looking through all the Diana photos on this thread and they are great. She certainly was a naturally photogenic woman and stunning throughout her life. I have always wondered how her style would have evolved as she entered her 40s. She would have been 44 now.

Are you thinking of the the dark blue Dior slipdress she wore in New York , I think in 1996? It kind of looked like a nightgown, and she wore the sapphire and pearl choker with it.

Canadiana: in the top picture you posted, is she wearing the sapphire brooch at her neckline, the same one she later made as a centerpiece of a pearl choker?

Canadiana, thanks for posting pictures - it sounds like you have a fabulous collection. May I ask when & where the bottom picture was taken - I have never seen it before. I don't recognize that broach Diana is wearing either - is it one of her fake "gems"?

I think it wasn't that Diana was beautiful, it was that she had a lot of charisma and charm. She was very attractive. Unfortunately, that is now in the past.

maybe is now in the past, but me (and this a very personal opinion) when I saw Diana, her sad eyes, her smille, I cant think in a death person, I cant think in past, or future. Is only that moment when I saw a diana's photo, she is alive in that moment.
She not is death in my heart (in many many people's hearts), so a bits of her is alive, and will be alive forever.

As Lady Jean suggested, this may be the gown you are thinking of? Diana wore this Christian Dior dress to the Costume Institute Ball in NYC in Dec. 1996.

There are two that I can think of in 1996. This Versace dress which she wore to a gala in Chicago in June 1996 ...

... or this dress, which she wore in Australia in November 1996

Yes Lady Jean that huge sapphire & diamond brooch she is wear in the first picture (Jan 29'86) was originally given to diana by the Queen Mother as a brooch Diana wasn't overly fond of brooches so she later had it converted into the very familiar choker. I think she must have been able to detach it cause she first worn that big pearl choker or most noticeable I should say to Washington Nov. 1985 and this is a couple months later as a brooch??? Unless of course she did have a fake one she worn as a brooch???
Squidgy that second pic I have to say I've NO idea which is annoying (haha) I'll be trying to figured that out for years I daresay. I cam upon this why searching for diana pix. This is a Spanish singing group and it was on their website. If you have the Christies Auction book this appears to be gown #76 which was refitted after she worn it in Oct 27'87 (the mary tudor look remember big huge collar and big crucifix she worn around her nec). I really thought this was from early 1987 cause of her hair but if this is really this gown and it sures look like it it can't be cause she worn that gown before the altercations fall 1987 so no way she could have worn it in early 1987 with the collar, neckline & sleeves cut off obviously so I think it has to be another time. which makes me think it might be spring '88. Cause her let her hair grown out quite long in late 1987 (& she worn it up few times) but by 1988 spring she cut it short again but my 89 she let it grow out again so that she was at times wearing her hair up. That's how I'm going about this, by timeline by the hair and now the gown. Also so far as I know she has never worn this gown publically so that would make you think private engagement?? As for what she has on it could be a piece of costume jewelry as she liked to do that remember the snake on her lapel at a rock concert so she liked to experience.
I have more pix wasn't sure if I could post them here as it says recent pix. I think there's a 'rare' section for pix somewhere here so I'll check that out. I'm new so don't want to be posting in wrong places and be annoying???

I think "recent pix" means not posted on the website before...but so far the pix you've provided are "rare" compared to many photos posted of her or others. It 's confusing since the subject of this thread has unfortunately passed on. PLEASE keep posting!

THe sapphire brooch I agree is either a faux copy or it was easily removable from the pearls. I only remember two other events when she wore it as a brooch: Q. Beatrix's visit evening event 1982 w/the sash, and 1982 eve. at 10 Downing St. Those two pre-date the choker's existence. Yes if she hadn't changed her hairstyle from time to time it wouldn't be so easy to estimate the years of the pictures.

Diana WAS beautiful and IS still beautiful in our hearts!! I am so tired of everyone trying to whitewash her out of the picture--it isn't going to happen as much as many would like it to. She is the mother of the future king and is still beloved around the world. Camilla can't take that from her.

well I can't see that cause you can see the wine/burgundy print of the skirt????? first when I seen it I thought it was #61 BUT that has a more shaped strapless bodice and is all same colour. I think the bodice here is black and as I said the skirt looks like a printed or quilted flower effect as it says in the christies book

THanks for the correction, and your theory totally makes sense. I can't see the purple because my computer screen is pretty dark.

O.K. now I can understand why you said that before I was

I have over 48 disk of pix I've saved off the internet. All organized of course according to year then off duty, unknown, misc., holidays, official pix etc. YES I'm very very organized. Not sure it's always a good thing cause it drives even me nuts at times. Anyway I'll have to see if I can get rare pix that haven't been posted here already???
