The definitive dress exhibition

Trace the evolution of the Princess’s style, from the demure, romantic outfits of her first public appearances, to the glamour, elegance and confidence of her later life.

Don’t miss an extraordinary collection of garments, including Victor Edelstein’s iconic ink blue velvet gown, famously worn at the White House when the Princess danced with John Travolta.

New discoveries and original designs

The Princess’s relationship with her favourite designers is explored through a display of original fashion sketches created for her during the design process.

In addition, a recently discovered blue tartan Emanuel suit will go on display to the public for the first time. This suit was worn by Diana on an official visit to Venice in the 1980s.

 

What will I find when I enter the exhibition?

There are six rooms containing a variety of outfits worn by Diana, Princess of Wales. There are also interpretation panels, photographs and original sketches by some of the princess’s favourite designers. Photography (without the use of a flash) is permitted throughout the palace, but any video recording, or the use of tripods or selfie-sticks are not.
