    These iconic images of Princess Diana were taken by Mario Testino five months before her tragic death. The fashion photographer said about the pictures, “[Diana] said to me at the time [that] her children had said to her it was the most ‘her’ they had seen.”.  Mario Testino is also the photographer behind Prince William and Kate Middletons’ engagement pics.

    THE DRESS credited with turning a shy Diana Spencer in to a worldwide fashion phenomenon is set to go under the hammer. The black dress, by David and Elizabeth Emanuel, was worn by a 19-year-old Diana to her first official appearance after her engagement to Prince Charles – and earned her the tabloid nickname “Daring Di” for its low neckline and bare shoulders.
