Prince Charles wears a vintage tuxedo and Princess Diana wears a vintage Klondike-style dress at Fort Edmonton Park in Alberta. They pose next to a mannequin dressed as a Royal Canadian Mounty.

It looks like once upon a time they at least enjoyed each other's company. Diana looks full of mischievous good humor. She was almost still a child then-- a year out of her teens?

With the Duke of Marlborough at an event at Blenheim Palace . Does anyone have more information on that evening?

I know the quality of the following pictures is mediocre but I thought you would enjoy them. If anyone has better quality substitutes that would be great and I will delete these. Garden Party at Buckingham Palace, 1983.

Lady Jean,
Thanks for that great collection of pictures! I am curious about the last one you posted, where she is coming down the stairs. She wore that dress in Canada or Australia in 83 and I am just wondering if she has her sleeves pushed up to her elbows. The original dress is long sleeved!

The second dress from the bottom is interesting. I am thinking that is when she first went barelegged in public. Am I correct?

Thanks for your help. And please keep posting!

Lady Jean 07-08-2006 11:18 PM

Hmm, good questions. It looks to me like she just pushed up the sleeves on the yellow dress (although that looks uncomfortable.) I think the last time she wore a yellow coatdress w/ruffle at the neck in public (before 5/11) was April 19, and it definitely had long sleeves. The description in the Fashion Diary says "half-length" sleeves for the May 11 appearance - I don't know if they didn't have a clear picture either, or if the dress was altered, or if there were two of the same dress w/different sleeves. On the Canadian tour in June 1983 she wore a long sleeved one. What do you think?
Yes, the peach dress was supposedly the first time she went bare-legged. Once she started she never stopped, she was frequently that way!
As usual I'm digging around for more pictures. Those were the cream of the crop so far. Thanks for the compliments. :)

Lady Jean,

In case you're still wondering about the photo in your Post #77 at Blenheim Palace: This was a chamber music concert on November 1, 1981. That was the evening of the same day as the christening of Lord and Lady Romsey's son Nicholas. Squidgy has a photo from the christening on the Diana's Godchildren thread (Post #41).

What I find interesting is that both outfits Diana wore that day are dark purple -- the aubergine velvet suit for the christening, and the striped purple taffeta gown for the concert.

Lady Jean 07-14-2006 05:43 PM

Umbrellagirl, Excellent info, thank you. Now what I find most interesting is she wore the aubergine suit to the christening so soon after its appearance on the tour of Wales on Oct 29!

umbrellagirl 07-14-2006 07:52 PM

Yes, you're right. From Thursday to Sunday -- only three days later!

That suit was one of her very favorites. She wore it over and over again in the early years.
