Remembering Princess Diana in 'Tudors to Windsors: British Royal Portraits'

"Diana, Princess of Wales," Bryan Organ's 1981 acrylic painting on canvas, is reproduced from Tudors to Windsors: British Royal Portraits, the National Portrait Gallery's new collection of portraits of British royalty spanning 500 years of painting and photography. "When Lady Diana's portrait was unveiled just days before her wedding at St Paul's Cathedral, press attention focused on the unusual depiction of a female member of the royal family in trousers," Rosie Broadley writes, "a foretaste of what was to become a media obsession with the Princess of Wales's clothes and appearance. Within months of its unveiling, the portrait had been slashed as a political protest over British involvement in Ireland, but was successfully restored, the damage remaining only barely perceptible…" We remember Princess Diana on the anniversary of her death on this day in 1997.
