Diana's Engagements: 1981-1997, Complete List and Photographs
 
I'm looking for a picture of Diana at the Braemar Games (I don't know which year) where she weares a tartan dress and a tartan hat with a huge feather.

But of course you may post other pictures of Diana at the Braemar games. ;)

royal-sophietje,

Diana wore a greyish blue and white plaid button-down dress at the 1989 games - is this what you mean? The hat had a very long, sleek-looking feather, as opposed to a big fluffy wide one.

In 1988 (?) she wore a black watch tartan dress w/wide white lace collar and black bow, and black wide brimmed hat.

At the 1987 games she wore a wine/burgundy and navy black double-breasted two piece outfit, with a tam w/a slender feather on it.

For 1986 she wore the hot pink jacket, white and black button down blouse and yellow and pink plaid skirt, outfit by Laurel.

1982 she wore a moss green and mustard check dress with white collar.

1981 she wore a wine and black plaid dress w/mandarin collar and velvet tam.

I believe she skipped 1984 because she was close to the birth of Harry.

Any pictures of the princess at the memorial service in 1989?

Well, as long it has some tartan, it can be.

But I was told that the dress I'm looking for is something of purple or red tartan and a hat in the same tartan with a huge feather. Or a little one, I don't know.

It's not of tartan. It was a scottish tarten dress. The person who wants to picture told me, it was hard to dinf, but she had seen it on the TV... Probably one of the last times she attended Braemar with Charles.

Diana wore this dress and jacket during the 1983 Canadian visit with Prince Charles. It just happened to be her birthday that particular day and they were riding around a stadium (of some sort) in a convertible while people in the stands sang "Happy Birthday". It looked as though she was very surprised and happy.

I think the her last Braemar appearance was 1989, when she wore the light grey plaid dress with gold buttons down the front. It is very similar in style to the light blue dress she wore when she shook hands with the lepers. Someday I will find a picture of it for you. The hat she wore featured the same tartan as the dress.

Here we go, one for every year except 1984 (when Harry was born) I think that 1989 was the last year that Diana went to the Braemer Games.

Diana at Ascot
 
It's Ascot week. What better time to start a thread on -- what else? -- Diana at Ascot.

To start things off, here she is on her very first appearance, June 16, 1981, during the engagement.

I remember seeing photos of this outfit at the time and saying how pretty Diana looked. My brother-in-law remarked, "She looks like a clown." I was offended on her behalf, but now, looking back, I gotta agree -- he was right.:p

That was a bad time for fashion. I don't like to remember her in those outfits because they seem made for a much older woman...or fashion impaired. I prefer Diana, the Vamp Years.

I like the peach outfit. I think she looks classy there.

However, I agree about the red outfit, it definitely was NOT her best!!

I wonder if people could contribute pictures of their favorite Diana Ascot outfits?? I liked the white dress with gray top coat that she also wore to her brother's wedding.

I will think of others later, I am sure!!

I don't recall all fashion being bad in the early 80s - this doesn't mean it wasn't, just that I don't recall it :) I do remember thinking she was often dressed oddly though. She wore a lot of frills and huge collars, and I don't remember anyone else wearing such things at the time.
