Diana 20th Anniversary Photo Challenge
[22/31] - Favorite Photo(s) of Diana with another member of a Royal Family from another Country.
Princess Grace and Princess Diana met on three occasions…
the first being in March of 1981
at Goldsmiths" Hall in London , the night Diana made her first public appearance , with the Prince, after the engagement.There was a reception following at Buckingham Palace.
They met again in the Royal Box at Wimbledon on July 4th of that year.
Third meeting was at the Royal Wedding end of that same month.
Even though they did not spend a lot of time together they did form an instant friendship probably because both women were such kind, loving, generous and spiritual people who wanted to help others and especially help children.
Also Princess Grace was very understanding with the young Lady Diana Spencer the first night they met.
When Princess Grace died tragically in September of 1982 Princess Diana requested that she be sent to Monaco to represent Her Majesty at the funeral.
At the reception afterwards, she speaks to Princess Caroline of Monaco about her mother. ‘We were psychically connected,’ she tells her.
Last b/w photo of Princess Grace was taken at the Royal wedding. The large group photo of the wedding included the foreign royalty who attended.
The last two photos of Princess Diana were taken at the funeral of Princess Grace.I do not own any of the photographs in this post.
