No, (so far?) no pics, but it's said to be "flat pumps". Maybe she's even pictured in them at some function or shopping in them? Unless they never saw the light of day (namely she was never photographed wearing them).

I was not even sure the pics showed jimmy choos shoes. It was not a very good article.

It's the dm, what do you expect!  laugh They basically spun an article out of a couple of sentences he said... Par for the course with this paper, got to get the clicks somehow!

 urwelcome Sadly the article looks like a quickly cobbled together thing, I was disappointed at the lack of pics as well (relevant ones - ie the shoe)...
I especially love her style towards the end, more "modern", timeless, chic and streamlined; very elegant and sophistcated. Clothes & hair! Her makeup was basically always timeless, save for the blue eyeliner, which wasn't really all that disastrous.

I have gone to see the traveling Diana dresses exhibits a couple of times. Once, many years back-probably 15+ years ago and the last time about 4 years ago when another collection came through town. The second one that came through was the Althorp tour so I got to also see some of her childhood things. The little trunk she packed for school was adorable and heartbreaking at the same time. I couldn't imaging packing my kids off at such a young age and sending them to boarding school.

I truly enjoyed viewing her clothes and personal items-they are much more magnificent in person for sure.

I got to see the exhibit at Kensington last spring. I loved every minute of it.

Sketches of outfits designed for Princess Diana’s 1986 Gulf Tour are set to fetch thousands at auction – including a burka created for Saudi Arabia

    Diana enlisted designers David and Elizabeth Emanuel to create outfit for tour
    The duo were asked to make dresses that 'conformed to local customs'
    The collection includes a sketch of a black and white silk evening dress

Whoever is handling this is not very business savvy; with the right kind of handling, these dresses and sketches could fetch millions, not just thousands. I admit I was surprised that when Diana auctioned her dresses, that she did not make more than just a couple million. Those dresses were priceless and legendary and they were sold very cheaply. Not much was raised for charity and not much was accomplished. Does no one in the RF know how to do anything effectively?

For reasons I do not know, the Windsors are so timid and afraid of actually having to accomplish something. Like raising real money for charity, or actually running a charity that doesn't have massive overhead expenses, or something that in fact gets a real problem solved. I am certain they have had the best help, but thing is, that the Windsors do not LISTEN and actually follow through on good advice. Clearly the courtiers aren't being trusted, much less listened to and those the Windsors are listening to are not those who have good intentions.

Forensic scientist reveals how she was able to prove Diana WASN'T pregnant at the time of her death by extracting a sample of her stomach contents for signs of the pill
    Analysed blood samples to see if they contained a pregnancy hormone
    Searched for any evidence that Diana may have been taking a contraceptive pill
    Extracted sample of her stomach contents testing for contraceptive residues
And while Cowan had began developing a clever pregnancy test that would work on dried blood, Angela took a sample of Diana's stomach contents to test for any signs of contraceptive residue.
She revealed that the results were negative meaning that it was extremely unlikely that Diana was pregnant at the time of the crash. 
This reportedly coincided with information offered from Diana's loved ones that there had been no other evidence to suggest she was pregnant.

I thought she was embalmed almost immediately so no tests could be taken. It was mostly from testimony of MOnckton that she was on the pill.

Yes, she was embalmed immediately and many weird things happened from start (pre-accident that night) to finish (embalming, autopsy, inquest etc) as we all know. But I doubt she was pregnant. She was apparently never pregnant apart from W&H with all the men she was with (not to say there were many, but those she was with), but now she's supposed to have become almost immediately pregnant upon meeting Dodi?

I think there's a lot of bs myth around those two, because everything happened so fast and ended so tragically and the two involved (Diana & Dodi) can't really tell their side. One of the bs myths is imo the "engagement" between them and the "engagement ring". Same with the pregnancy.

I think Burrell or Morton (or someone else? I think Burrell though) put it best when they recounted their "courtship" and it was literally all of two seconds. No time to get pregnant and engaged, unless you're some sleb. I doubt Diana would've done sth so incredibly dumb esp considering her fear of the Winds (of them taking her kids away, killing her, spying on her etc).

Makes no sense, the "engagement" and "pregnancy" stuff.

She supposedly had "big news" coming up, but I really think that was connected to sth else (like her being involved in sth, like the rumours of her emigrating to the US, now I don't believe that bs either because she would've hardly left her sons behind like that, but I could imagine that she was looking elsewhere (outside UK) to have a home base and maybe that was her "big news", seems more likely than the other stuff peddled).

I think Diana's 'big news' was either another cause to pursue and promote, or a holiday home she was going to lease in the US. It's true that she wouldn't have moved permanently to the US because of her boys, but I could see her settling down for part of the year somewhere hot (the way she liked it) and come back to England in time for her boys' school holidays. She might even have had them with her in the US for part of the time in their breaks.

^ I think so, too. That's pretty much a concise summary of what I too think, much better than my rambling!

It would've been possible for her to be gone for weeks or even months on end with the boys at boarding school, and then be back home for their holidays or have them with her at her new place... With her money and all and the travel she was used to anyway, I think she'd have regularly travelled back and forth.

Some speculate she was eyeing the US, but to me that seems too far away. France would've been a much better choice, but we have no way of knowing now...
