Princess Diana's Fashion on Display in Palace

If Royal Family fashion interests you, then Dianas exhibition is a must-see!

If you are a fan of the British Royal Family, Kensington Palace now holds an exhibition made for all the people who loved Prince William and Prince Harry’s late mother.

Make your way to the royal residence to find “Diana: Her Fashion Story”, the newest addition to the Palace’s on-going exhibitions that focuses on the iconic dresses and outfit choices that Princess Diana made during her life. The display also shows the importance of her fashion choices through an explanatory video that will tell the visitors why she chose that outfit on that particular outing.

It also has the original sketches of some of the dresses on display made by British designers that worked with her during her life. Visitors will be able to see iconic looks such as Diana’s outfit on her honeymoon in Balmoral, as well as the velvet blue gown she danced with John Travolta in, at the White House during her visit to America. Tickets for the exhibition are included in the admission price for Kensington Palace. Though there isn't a closing date for the exhibition, most of the dresses come from Chile’s Fashion Museum, so it’s possible that some pieces in the display will change in the upcoming months.

Nearest station: Queensway
Price: Entrance included in Kensington Palace ticket price (£15.50)
Time: Allow 1 hour to view the exhibition

Where to visit before: It is worth visiting Kensington Gardens (which Kensington Palace is set within). It is one of London's Royal Parks, and it is beautifully maintained. It was once the private gardens of the Palace. For more details on Kensington Gardens read our article: Best Parks to Visit in Central London.

Where to visit after: We also highly recommend MEATLiquor if you are looking for a casual lunch or dinner spot nearby. It serves high-quality burgers, chicken wings and fries. The American style diner is also a bar (no under 18's allowed after 7 pm) which remains open until 11 pm Sunday-Thursday and midnight Friday & Saturday. The restaurant has a pool table, photo booth and table football for those wanting to have fun as they drink.
