Those shots are lovely-I remember another one too where you could see Charle's fave better and he is smiling too. :)

Question

I've just discovered this forum, and I'm so excited! Now I can discuss this stuff, without boring all my friends. I too have been working for years at trying to provide the exact dates for every photo of Diana. I thought I was an expert on Diana's clothes and when she wore them, but some of you are way ahead of me, especially Canadiana and Squidgy.
Canadiana, I am in awe of your accomplishment, your knowledge, and your organization. However, I have a few quibbles. First of all, you've posted the same photo twice and assigned it two different dates. In Post #83 of this thread, you show a b/w photo of Diana in her raspberry suit, dated Mar. 13, 1984 (at Hammersmith Hospital). But in Post #106, you have the SAME PHOTO, this time dated Mar. 27, 1985 (at a luncheon at Fishmongers Hall). One of them can't be right.

You know that pink ruffled gown Diana is wearing in Post #78 of this thread, in May 1983? I think that's the dress she wore at the private ball the Monday night before the wedding. As far as I know, there are no photos because it was a private event, but Mary Robertson was there. She was the American who employed Diana before the engagement as a part-time nanny for her baby boy, and in her book The Diana I Knew she says that Diana wore a deep pink ruffled gown at the ball. As soon as I read that, I thought of this dress. Does anyone know if there WERE any photos of that night?

The photo of the dress you refer to on post #78 has been deleted because it didn't comply with the TRF Posting Rules. Could somebody attach it properly so I could see the gown in question?

Thanks!:)

Has anyone else stopped and thought of the appropriateness of all these paparazzi shots? Even more so those pics where Diana is being ambushed and pursued by photographers? There seems to be an element of the ghoulish and the macabre in all of this.

I remember watching on our television news many years ago footage of Diana being harassed by photographers, totally in her face, on a London street. She was distressed, and it was disturbing to watch then, and not much better to see these same pics now.

I'm surprised no one has made any comment on these pics, especially those showing her fleeing the paparazzi. Where does the blame lie? The free-lance photographers? the newspapers and magazines? the public with its insatiable appetite for more?

'Diana the Hunted' indeed.

first: thanks for posting all the photos rchainho!

I agree with you Warren, it makes me sad to see all these photos of her beeing hunted by photographers, especially considering her fate.
but I cant deny that I like seeing photos of her in private. Its those photos I save and pays attention to...

Thanks Yennie. Maybe I should have made myself more clear: we all like to see natural shots because they give us some inkling of "what she was really like"; telephoto pararazzi pics if they are good ones we don't mind because it's not our privacy being invaded and we understand that Diana would have been aware there were cameras trained on her whenever she ventured outdoors.

But the many pics of her being harassed and chased down the street are disturbing, and, repeating myself here, I was surprised they have so far passed without comment from our members. It's as if a "Diana pic" is the object of the exercise, without any understanding of what we are really seeing. From my point of view, some of these pics are showing us the very ugly downside to media and public obsession, which directly or indirectly cost Diana her life.

Warren

Warren,
Yes, it is nice to see photos of Diana. And the images of her distress at the hands of the photographers is heartbreaking, knowing as we do the outcome. They do, however, give us a brief look at what it must have been like for her. And to help us understand why she may have at times seemed "irrational". Being "ambushed" having obscene things yelled at her, all for a photo, most of us would have hid under the bed!

I have enjoyed all the pictures, my personal favorites have always been the ones taken while she was "working". When Diana knew the photographers were there, doing their job as she was doing hers. I would love to see more of those.

The reason why I like seeing the casual pictures when she is off-duty: they show locations she visited in her free time, such as Beauchamp Place. I like to try to figure out the location and visit it myself, in order to understand her "world" better.

i agree Warren but isn't it sad that inspite of what happened to her, the press still treats celebrities and the BRF the same way.

To start off Part 3 I'll post a pic of Diana in glittering mode.
She is wearing the Spencer Family Tiara, the Royal Family Order, and some of the very impressive diamond and sapphire parure which was a gift from the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.
