Diana's engagements 1981 - 1997, the complete list
 
Dear all,

On my computer I have a lot of pictures of Diana. I didn't have a clue when and where the most pictures were taken, so I started organising my picture collection. My picture-progam (Picasa) showed labels for most pictures, containing date and location, so I was lucky with that :lol:

I discovered here that there are more Diana-fans, who would like dates and locations, so that's why I created a list with dates/events and locations I know of. No doubt that it isn't complete, and it may contain errors, but I hope that together we can work something out :flowers:

Feel free to print out the list to keep as reference and/or to correct/add dates and locations.

huge diana admirer
 
Hello to you all,
this is my first post here; I am from Austria (don't be confused about my nickname I am female) and I collect Diana pictures since I was 11. I spent all my pocket money in magazines with her pictures in it.
Last year I decided to make a life time project. I want to make a diary with all her pictures and her engagements from 1981 til 1997. It is really hard work but I love it. And now it seems I found the perfect forum to talk to you about rare pictures and dates. I allready glanced through your polo and Ascot sides throughout her years, trooping the colour etc. it is great.
Does anybody else do a project like mine, I would like to hear about it?
I also would like to answer your questions about Diana. For me she is the most wonderful person in the whole world and nobody not inside the royal circle nor any celebrety oudside comes even close to her.

In that page there's a link with all her engagements between 1981 and 1997 although I think the link is broken. Maybe a moderator will fix that. I remember it was very complete and detailed. I hope it will be fixed soon so you can find some good things in it.

Welcome Manfred197 to The Royal Forums I hope you have a good time here.

TheTruth, I'm not seeing any broken links; which one do you mean?

Maybe it's my computer ...

Elspeth 06-23-2007 04:31 PM

It's coming up OK for me; it's a list of her engagements.

Is anyone else not seeing it?

manfred197 06-23-2007 05:09 PM

Thank you all for your warm welcome. The link about her engagments is fine with me, I can see it. I think it will take me a while looking at all your posted messages, I started with the polo engagements and your postings already helped me a lot, special thanks to the Lady in Canada.
I just have a question about posting pictures. What if I don't have any source of the picture, only that it is an old clipping from a German magazine. I do have some where I don't know the engagement or the date, am I allowed to post them so you can help me find the fitting engagement?
I also have to get an icon for me, you all have such great ones, how do I put the icon in my messages?

smg9295 06-23-2007 05:17 PM

Welcome to the forums. I am relatively new myself. I also have collected photos of Diana since 1980 and I have 20 or more scrapbooks going in chronalogical order. I had a friend in England who would mail me packets of clippings from the papers in U.K. so my scrapbooks are well filled. How are you documenting all of her engagements? Are they in scrapbooks or would you be able to ever post what you have? Look forward to your additions to the forum!

manfred197 06-23-2007 05:30 PM

As I was very young in the 80ies I have a huge collection with just clippings from German magazines, but often don't know which engagement or day it is and I also don't know the correct source. So I don't know if I am allowed to post such photos, because I saw you all mentioned either the book or the photographer. They are all in srapebooks but I also have a scanner so I think that wouldn't be the problem. As I am doing a diary of all of her engaments I do scan photos from my scrapbook, books, magazines and put it in my computer diary and I have an extra egagement diary in excel at the moment, the pictures all have the .jpg extention, your collection also sounds huge do you only have the pictures or do you also know when and where they were taken? But I do have some photos in my collection which I never saw in any of the Diana books or majesty or royalty magazine, so with them they are hard to identify

Check your private-message inbox; I've answered these questions by PM rather than here so as to keep this thread on topic.

smg9295 06-23-2007 06:08 PM

Most of my scrapbook photos have the date and/or the engagement. It would be most interesting to see the photos that you have that you've not seen in the royalty publications, etc. I'd be happy to help you indentify the ones you need to find dates/engagements for.

Diana's engagements 1981 - 1997
 
Thanks for all the engagments for 96 and 97; I am a bit confused about the engamengt 15.04.97; I thought she was in Barbuda in the K Club for nearly the whole month with her children, so I think Meeting cystic fibrosis patients at the Royal Brompton Hospital can't be at that time.
Can anyone confirm the engagement 15.04.97?

Welcome Manfred197:flowers:.

I'm not positive about the exact dates that Diana was in Barbuda, but she probably would have only gone for a week or so, not the whole month.

Yes, 15-04-07 is the date I have for her visit to the Royal Brompton Hospital.
