Diana: Glimpses of a Modern PrincessFollowing a major renovation in time for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, Kensington Palace is once again opening its doors to the public. One of the first exhibitions taking place since the re-presentation project, Diana: Glimpses of a Modern Princess will be displaying a small selection of dresses worn by the late Princess of Wales. With her style under constant scrutiny, this exhibition will give visitors an insight into the fashion choices of the Princess. The dresses will be displayed alongside fashion illustrations and photographs, representing a number of iconic and memorable moments in the public life of Diana, telling the story of a young woman developing into a Princess.
