Since the Princess Diana picture thread has proved so popular and has now reached ten pages, I'm closing it and starting another one.

Thanks for the pictures Yennie & Tiaraprin.:)

It's especially nice to see this picture of Diana ...

http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...hmentid=182496

This was the first gown that the public got to see Diana wear.

It was taken in early November 1980 at a private party to celebrate Princess Margaret's birthday. Most pictures taken of Diana at this event show her outside wearing a dark brown day coat over this gown. It looked funny - here she was wearing a plain coat over what looked to be a beautiful pink gown and she was also wearing some fancy gold or silver shoes too. I guess that at this point, she was still a "regular" girl who didn't wear gowns often enough to justify the purchase of a fancier evening coat. That would all soon change ...

thankyou yennie for the wonderful pictures, esp the one taken on the birthday party of princess Margaret. Diana did wear a brown coat on the top of this fancy dress as squidgy said. and jane ficher ( I am not sure about the spellings of her name ) who latter photographed Diana through out her life almost, made the comment that ....we the photographers could not beleive that this girl could be the Diana spencer, she was shy and very much a country girl with big pink cheeks.

kiren 08-24-2005 07:42 PM

Thanks so much for the pictures Kiren.:)

I believe the first picture (Charles in tuxedo; Diana in white blouse & satin skirt) was taken on the evening of the day they announced their engagement (Feb 24 1981). Diana & Charles had dinner with the Queen Mom (& I think with Diana's grandmother, Lady Fermoy) at Clarence House that evening.

I remember this event well - it was around the time Diana had just gotten her hair cut really short (circa July 1990). She took the boys to see Cirque du Soleil in London.

Here are some larger photos from the outing ...

You are welcome Yennie:). And it's nice of you to say, but I am definately not an expert. :oThe only reason, I know these things is because I am only 7 years younger than Diana was, so I followed her life from the time she was engaged until the end. So it's easy for me to remember some things ... while you would have been too young to remember much of the earlier years of her life. I think most people on this forum who are around my age & who also followed the princess closely, would remember a lot of the details/events of her life too.

kiren 08-28-2005 09:40 PM

hey Squidgy !
You are an expert and it is what i had been thinking...when Diana got married i wasn't born either, and i fall in love with Diana in 1992 when I was 10 and had missed alot of her.Being 10 I was too young, by then we had no internet...the way it is common nowadays and i never could buy all the material on diana the way i would have wanted. So I am always in the process of getting back to her and grabbing all the bits about her and whatever i have missed.
But i love all ur collection of her pix and your detailed information about them.
have fun.

The great thing about TRF is that across the broad spectrum of the membership there are so many individual memories and stories which we can share.

All of us can recall certain events or incidents which stick in our minds. By posting them in the Forums we continually add to the bigger picture for everyone's benefit and enjoyment.

Thank you all for the pics (though some are rather ... hum ... risquées LOL!).
I'm looking for my favourite pic of Di which I haven't been able to find on the net yet.
It's a B&W close-up by Snowdon, which is take as if he was on his knees before Diana. She is wearing a white shirt and bursts out laughing. A stunning pic.
If anyone knows what I'm talking about, please, post.

Anyway, the pic is stunning. Thanks again; you made my day.

Sammy 08-29-2005 12:10 PM

Glad it was the right one!
As memory serves it was actually a test shot, a polaroid no less! That someone working for Snowdon found years later! It was a "forgotten" photo!
But happy to hear that I made someone smile!

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.

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.

skk 10-18-2005 01:42 PM

im looking for some pics from 1996 functions she attended..i remember the descriptions (sorry im having trouble seeing the pics that have been posted..having problem logging in to my a/c):
-this one was a dark blue dress(looked like a silk dress with net straps)..she is wearing a pearl n saphire necklace(choker?) with it
-she is wearing a purple dress with a pearl choker
-another picture i have heard alot about but havent seen it till now is when she went over Dodi's apartment for dinner at Park lane wearing a blue knee length dress(in the first week of August1997)...has someone got that picture??? i have been really looking for it..

any help would be much appreciated!! thanks

maryshawn 10-22-2005 03:11 PM

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.

Lady Jean 10-22-2005 07:45 PM

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?

Squidgy 10-23-2005 12:02 AM

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.

corazon 10-23-2005 12:32 AM

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. :rolleyes:

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.

Canadiana 10-23-2005 12:18 PM

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???:cool:

Lady Jean 10-23-2005 12:31 PM

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

Lady Jean 10-23-2005 01:43 PM

Canadiana, thank you so much for taking the time to explain the dating around the picture of Diana in the purple/black gown. Your conclusions make sense. Like you, looking at her hair, I would have guessed it to be early 1987 pictures, but as you say, if it is gown #76, then it has to be later than Oct. 1987. Gosh, you really have to do some detective work, to figure out some of these pictures!;)

And thanks so much for the link to the India picture.:) That is one of my favourite Diana cocktail dresses. The first time I remember her wearing it was to Russia in June 1995. I had no idea that she owned that dress for at least 2 years prior to that!

Another great place for pictures is to join an email group. I belong to a group that sends pictures that we find on the 'net or scan ourselves. There are big or small groups and since you generally have people from different states (US) and countries, you often see pics you've never seen before. I've been with my group for over 5 years, anyone interested is welcome to contact my privately.

Like you, looking at her hair, I would have guessed it to be early 1987 pictures, but as you say, if it is gown #76, then it has to be later than Oct. 1987. Gosh, you really have to do some detective work, to figure out some of these pictures!;)

And thanks so much for the link to the India picture.:) That is one of my favourite Diana cocktail dresses. The first time I remember her wearing it was to Russia in June 1995. I had no idea that she owned that dress for at least 2 years prior to that!

Thanx Squidgy. I really did think it was #61 first when I seen it so figured early & spring 1987 would be accurate. But more I looked at it I could see it's really the alternated #76 and obviously that HAD to be done after Oct 27'87 so no way it can be before then?? So that leave 1988 or possibly 1989 WHEN her hair was cut not when it was long and she worn it up although that was spring 1989. Right now I'm kinda figuring some time in 1988. I haven't checked my 1988 diary to see if I can figure it out yet.
Yes VERY obsessed with her engagements/fashions always trying to figure out stuff about new pix .:D
P.S. oh yea that 'russian' cocktail gown like you guys here I thought she first worn that to the ballet in Moscow I know she later worn it in London too but had no idea the FIRST time was in India '92. Amazing the things you can find out years later.

I'm beginning to realize that Diana had a very busy life as a royal. I followed her work while she was alive & she usually had at least 3 or 4 engagements per week, which to me seemed busy enough. But now, as you say years later, we are still discovering new engagements that she did. Good thing she was such an energetic person.:)

That's frustrating! I notice you attach your pictures directly to the forum. Have you tried posting your pictures as attachments or by using a image hosting site (which is the way the administrators prefer)? There is help on posting pictures & using Image Shack & other hosting sites on this part of the forum

http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...splay.php?f=19

I hope you can get the picture onto the forum.:) I'm not sure if I know what one you mean - was Diana wearing a yellow dress?

Canadiana 10-23-2005 07:47 PM

Yea it worked??????? So this is how it's preferred that pix be posted???????
Ok will try some more from 1984

Canadiana 10-23-2005 08:24 PM

Squidgy 10-23-2005 08:44 PM

Canadiana, I have a question about this picture that you posted ...

http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...hmentid=205314

Is this taken at the memorial service to one of her uncles? And if so, do you know which uncle - is it Sir Anthony Berry?

Canadiana 10-23-2005 08:45 PM

Thanx Squidgy
Here's some from 1982

that first pic she's wearing her claret coloured empire gown she worn first March 4 at the Barbican however here it's Nov 10 when she wasn't pregnant and it was a dinner aboard the HMS Victory, Portsmouth.
There's 2 pix of her in her mohair turquoise 'maternity' coat. The pic with the US dollar bill sorry about that but that's how it was when I saved it haven't changed it so that's why. She's attending the wedding of a friend Laura Greigg (her sister Lady jane seems to be next to her or part of her) she's wearing the same candy pink coat whe worn when she visited the Sony plant the next month (remember she worn a sony baseball cap & large safety glasses) there's 3 pix form Wm's christening there's one in a car (think charles finger is just next to his nose well hopefully LOL) there's 2 of her looking up which to be honest is really hard to find cause she was mainly looking down at the crying baby. There's 2 of her at a concert in her emerald green dress she worn for official engagement pix back in March/April '81. Lastly one of her at the Bruce Oldfield fashion show where all the eating disorder rumours started.

You're right - I never tire of seeing new pictures of Diana.:) And it is so nice that you take the time to describe the pictures, even though it is a lot of work for you. It's nice to put things in context. Thank you Canadiana.:)

I must be the only one who does not like looking at Diana when she was young. She looks frumpy and boyish. The 80's did not suit her well. She is much better in the 90's. Much more beutiful and sexy.

Yennie 10-24-2005 08:13 AM

wow, great photos! so many that I had not seen before...
thanks for posting everyone!

It's hard to tell, but it looks like it is Lot #29 in the Christies catalogue - this midnight blue Victor Edelstein gown that she wore a few times in 1993.

Corazon: In another thread you mentioned that Camilla was wearing a jewel from Diana? can you post the picture? It's so funny:mad: that all Camilla dresses has started to look like Diana's

Canadiana 10-24-2005 08:32 PM

first one is Feb 18 at the royal nepalese embassy she's wearing her romantic blue tulle gown first worn at a state banquet a month before the weddding she also worn it in Cardiff fall of '82 and in New Zealand april 1983 I think that's all possibly once more
2nd one is Feb 8 she's wearing her red coat & cossack hat which was popular with her 1985-86
3rd pic is Feb 5 she's in Essex I really LOVE this plaid suit she worn it many times with different tops, or different accessories or with a black cossack hat
4th is Feb 3 she's at a concert in Cardiff this is her "E.T." dress but without the jacket she's worn this several times most times w/o the jacket.
5th Feb 26 she's gazing lovingly at Charles isnt' she this is her lilac off the shoulder bal gown worn in London about 3 times or 4 but also in New Zealand in 1983
6th pix is March 6 she's at Goldsmith's Hall for a reception after attending a service at St. Paul's this pic is unique as they are photographed with the Queen most pix are just of them arriving for i
7th pic is April 7 Easter Service
8th pic March 14 at the Burma unveiling, W. Abbey she's wearing her very familiar winter outfit green velvet first worn back Nov. 2/83 when she visited the royal school for the blind
9th pic she's in Cornwall April 3 wearing a 2 piece check/tartan outfit which she again worn quite a bit most familiar would be at Braemar Games Sept '87 or Western Isles but she started wearing it early 1985 mainly that year to be honest
10th pic Feb 1 she's at Broadwater Farm in a rust coloured suit she worn in a portrait which has been posted here another time arriving from Scotland in fall 82 this was when she was so bored there and it was coming down the planes steps Carolyn Prides wedding was the next day

Yes she & Charles along with Andrew attended a performance of "Romeo & Juliet" it was Nov . 25 under this black cloak is her romantic blue tulle gown worn for state banquet first june '81

Incas 10-24-2005 08:46 PM

Thanks, Canadiana. It was Andrew's presence that threw me for a loop. I thought for sure it was some formal fare at BP. Does your photo collection mainly from the 80's?
