32 Very Rare Photos of Princess Diana

Princess Diana, the most popular lady on the planet at the time, captured the hearts of millions in the 80s and 90s. While she was constantly in the spotlight, we have gathered some intriguing photos that provide a closer look into her life. These pictures depict a very special side of Diana before her life tragically came to an end.

Ski Trip

In 1994, Princess Diana hit the slopes in Austria with her children William and Harry. This picture was taken when Harry was just 9 years old.

Ring the Bells

There was a lot of controversy surrounding Diana’s wedding details. She chose her engagement ring from a catalog, unlike most royal engagement rings that are custom-designed. The ring consisted of 14 solitaire diamonds around a 12-carat sapphire set in white gold from a Garrard jewelry collection catalog. When she passed away, it was passed down to Kate Middleton.

The Nerves!

Diana was so nervous that when she made it to the altar, she called her future husband by the wrong name! She called him Philip Charles Arthur George instead of just Charles Philip!

Train Troubles

Designers of Diana’s 25-foot train didn’t consider how difficult it would be to walk in, and it ended up causing some problems on the wedding day. The dress and its train ended up being a little crushed inside the carriage, resulting in visible wrinkles on her dress.

Tiara in Training

Princess Diana’s brother, Charles Spencer, commented that her elaborate tiara gave her a headache. During an interview, he said, “In the evening, we all went to a sort of semi-private party, and she was there, and she seemed incredibly relaxed and happy, and I just remember she had a cracking headache too because she wasn’t used to wearing a tiara all morning.” Regardless, Diana wore the Spencer Tiara, which had been in the family for almost a century.

Red Flag

It wasn’t always smooth sailing for Diana and Charles. There was trouble in paradise from the start. For example, in 1981, when their engagement was confirmed, a reporter asked them if they were in love. Diana said, “Of course,” while Charles said, “Whatever ‘in love’ means.”

Safety First

The press was desperate to sneak some pictures of Diana’s dress. They ripped up sketches after showing them to Diana just in case nobody would sneak in and take a peek. They also installed a safe in the studio to keep the designs safe and secret.

Wedding Gifts

The couple received incredible gifts. The Reagans sent them an engraved Steuben glass bowl and a handmade porcelain centerpiece. Both were truly spectacular. They also received a special whiskey from Scotland, a matching diamond and sapphire watch, and even 100-year-old silk mittens!

Distant Relations

A hidden secret was revealed after the couple tied the knot. They were distant cousins! Both Diana and Charles were 16th cousins once removed as they were both descendants of Tudor King, Henry VII.

The Honeymoon

They took off on a cruise in the Mediterranean for their honeymoon. However, when a conversation between the couple was revealed, this is what they heard, “The honeymoon was a perfect opportunity to catch up on sleep…”
