That is wonderful, jackieo, and I'm sure the 1980's and '90's CC records would be an enormous help to Iluvbertie and others who collate Royal engagements here. I used to have lots of magazines and clippings on Diana but most of them got thrown out over the years, so good on you for keeping yours.

I would love the CC records to add to my collection for engagements if possible. Maybe we should communicate via PM.

That sounds great. If anyone else is interested let me know, even if time has passed since this post.

Diana's engagements on 27 September 1990

I have a page from a visitors' book that Diana has signed and dated. The date is 27 September 1990.

The person I bought it from said that he had been in charge of a centre (for the homeless I believe) in Camden at the time and Diana had visited the centre on the above date.

I have Googled to the point of exhaustion but can find no list of Diana's official engagements for that day. I have seen an image of a lunch she had at the Merchant's Hall that day so I do know that she was indeed in London.

I am not worried about the authenticity of the piece but I would dearly love to obtain some more information about its background.

The Royal Circular site only gives details of engagements back to 1997. I know The Times publishes or published details of Royal engagements but a) I am not sure whether I would need the paper for 27/9 or 28/9 and b) I don't really want to buy an old newspaper for £35.

Can anyone help me?

Hi herrlast, The only place I know of in Camden that Diana was involved with was one run by the Thomas Coram Foundation: Homeless Children Project. She visited that centre in January of 1990, there are photos of her arriving. However, I can't find any photos of her visiting in September unfortunately.

However, as Diana tried to get around her charities connected with the homeless and with children several times a year, both privately and publicly, I wouldn't be at all surprised at her visiting the centre in the autumn after her visit at the beginning of the year.

Thank you Curryong, I also found images of Diana at the Thomas Coram Foundation but I was put off by the date. I expect they have a site so I will dig a bit there. If it was a private visit there may well be no record of it at all - apart from my visitors's book page of course.

Diana visit to Camden 27 September 1990 - follow-up

While tidying up I came across the original backing board for Diana's autograph. The seller had written some details on the board. In a nutshell, Diana was visiting a Winter Project for the homeless in Camden Road.

My subsequent Googling has alas uncovered nothing about this visit.

By the way, the autograph was matted with a good quality original black & white photograph of Diana by David Bailey (see attached image). Perhaps someone knows if Diana handed out photos on her visits to such projects.

My opinion only, but I doubt very very much that the Princess of Wales would go to an engagement and hand out copies of her own photograph, autographed or otherwise. I never heard of her or any other British Royal doing so.

I don't know what details the seller gave to you when she/he sold you the original autograph but it could be that both photo and autograph were auctioned by the charity concerned, after Diana had left, in honour of her visit and to raise funds for the cause.

Alternatively, maybe the person bought a copy of Diana's Bailey photo somewhere (there were images of her all over the place) and then got the autograph or vice versa and being a fan, twinned them together.

I recently watched a 1986 prog on YouTube called Charles and Diana - in Public and Private. Both Charles and Diana signed photographs to give to charit "benefactors" - it was mainly in the US, but they did do it. They signed so many.

Doesn't the royal family give photos as thank you for tours? I don't know if they are signed or not. There was a picture of a framed photo of W&K with baby George that was a thank you for the Australian and New Zealand tour. I would also think that the charities that have a royal patron would probably have some photos of them. I can't see royals passing out signed photos as the work a crowd.

Jackieo1600 I have tons of engagements and dates. I am currently doing this on Pinterest year by year with the engagements I have. Unfortunately I live in the States and didn't have access to the court circulars, just did a lot by Majesty and Royalty magazines and other sources. Please feel free to message me and maybe we can get them all. My dream at one time was to have every picture of every engagement, but I don't know if that is even possible!

You won't get pictures of every engagement simply because they don't release them of things like 'meetings' or 'receiveds'.

Who would be interested in seeing a group of people sitting around a table talking about something - once or twice yes but 100s of them - no. All royals do a number of these of things.

The 'out of palace' engagements are the ones where photos would be possible.

Not even all the receptions a royal attends have photos released.

A full copy of the CC from 1981 to her leaving the royal family when her official engagements would have stopped being recorded is the only way to do a full count and the online CC only goes back to 1997.

When I retire I intend on visiting a few places where I know they had the CC going back to the beginning on micro-fiche to find out if they digitised the entire copies of The Times or whether they only did selected bits. If they digitised it then I will attempt to do a full count for Diana - along with the rest of the BRF since WWII.

An update to this post ... now that I am retired.

I have been looking into availability of past copies of The Times here in Australia and my old university claims to have all of The Times back to 1788 - except for anything from 1978 for some reason. The State Library of NSW claims to have the entire Times back to 1788.

Now I have to get to one or both of these places and check them out and see how far back I can go (a wonderful retirement project for me I think).

I am currently doing 1997 from the British Monarchy website and am almost finished June. They certainly made use of Britannia and I am also finding it interesting how many of the family visited Hong Kong in the first half of that year and the fact that Philip basically was absent from the UK for a month on a world tour for World Wide Fund for Nature.
