Princess Diana was a master of dressing to communicate, according to an historical fashion expert, who looks after the royal’s clothes.
Eleri Lynn was the curator of ‘Diana: Her Fashion Story’, an exhibition which was held at Kensington Palace, the princess’s former home in 2018.
Lynn said: “It can seem frivolous talking about somebody’s fashion as if it’s all that defines them.
“But fashion is an important way into history.
“Diana was a master of using clothes as a form of language, as a form of communication.
“She very famously said to Jasper Conran, ‘what message am I giving out?’”
Lynn was in conversation with historian and Historic Royal Palaces’ joint chief curator Lucy Worsley in an event on Thursday evening, and revealed a secret about one of the most recent acquisitions of the late Princess of Wales’s wardrobe.
