The Princess Dresses

Ten dresses belonging to the late Diana, Princess of Wales, fetched over £800,000 at a Kerry Taylor auction in London two days ago.

“Bidders today were able to buy a unique slice of British history,” said auctioneer Kerry Taylor. “We attracted bidders from across the world including Asia, America, Austria, Australia and of course, the UK, including three important museums so we are hopeful that now people will actually get to see some of the dresses that belonged to the people’s princess.”
