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 .
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?

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.

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.

The first was taken when she was working at the nursery school and was out on a walk and in the second, I believe she's holding a camisole top. I think! Correct me please if I am wrong.:)

Hi, yes I posted a camilla's photo with diana's jewel. I posted again here.
Yes, some camilla dresses look like diana's. Is sad but to much people it does not matter. for me (and is my personal opinion) it is a lack of respect.

How tacky! I think that those jewels should be saved for William/Harry's future wife or children. As for Camilla's dresses looking like Diana's, don't worry there's no comparison! Camilla will never shine in a dress the way the late princess of wales did IMO!

I don't understand why Camilla takes these hand me downs, I realize that they are precious, expensive and its an honour to be given such jewels for use but given the circumstances it seems wrong and insensitive for the ex-mistress to take the jewels of the deceased wife.

Wasn't that necklace borrowed from the jeweller? I seem to remember reading that.
Regardless, it was a very bad judgement call.

I also think Diana borrowed that necklace from a jeweler for that one evening. Its contemporary design also leads me to believe it wasn't in the royal family's collection.
