History For Sale

A selection of Princess Diana's dresses are to go on sale in June, at an auction in London. It will include the black taffeta gown with plunging neckline, worn by Princess Diana in 1981, which had tabloid headlines screaming "Daring Di".

The dress is particularly significant, since it was worn for Diana's first official appearance after her engagement to Prince Charles.

30 lots will be sold in total, dating from 1981 to 1986. The clothes are being put up for auction by the David and Elizabeth Emmanuel, who designed Diana's wedding dress. As well as clothes, there are also sketches, and other paperwork, relating to that dress, as well as the petticoat that Diana wore to wedding rehearsals at St. Paul's Cathedral in London.

The sale, organised by Kerry Taylor Auctions, will take place on 8th June at La Galleria on Pall Mall in London.
