Hard as it is to believe, it would have been Diana’s 59th birthday today. She was an avid tennis fan and a fixture at Wimbledon, so to honor both her birthday and the Wimbledon that wasn’t, here are a few of her appearances.
(Also note the various, and young, royals and royal adjacents who appear here and there!)
In the early days, in her frilly period, Diana wore a series of ensembles that just seem a little to warm for the event. She herself always remained cool, though. A princess from the beginning.
Lady Di, as she was then, with a prince and princess from Monaco.
Diana and William, 1991. Funny, I remember loving this belt at the time, and now it seems like she could have found a better use for it, like lending it to the world heavyweight champion.
Diana in red, 1994. Her Wimbledon wear loosened up considerably by the later years, and this has always been a favorite.
Diana, channeling her inner Princess Margaret, 1995.
If you want the ease of a slideshow, Tatler published this one last year.
In honor of her birthday, and the tennis event that wasn’t, let’s see your favorites of Diana – at Wimbledon, or any event.
