Presented the story of Lady Diana Spencer. A tale full of mystery and conspiracy.
King Charle’s betrayal, Lady Diana’s payback.
Diana, Princess of Wales, was a member of the British royal family She was the first wife of Charles Prince of Wales—the heir apparent to the British throne and she was the mother of Prince William and Prince Harry.
Lady D rose to prominence in 1981 upon her engagement to Charles, and her activism and glamour soon made her an international icon, earning her the title of ‘People’s Princess’.
the tumultuous and strained relationship between Charles and Diana, ridden with explosive arguments and extramarital affairs which leaded to a weakening of their marriage.
Diana couldn’t handle the numerous betrayals from Prince Charles anymore, in fact In 1995, during her Panorama interview with BBC journalist Martin Bashir, Diana famously said: “There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded”.
Therefore she decided to show up in public on the very evening when her husband admitted infidelities, she wanted to give an unequivocal message to the royal family, taking revenge for the wrongs suffered with elegance.
The former designer of the Princess, Anna Harvey said that Diana wanted to dazzle the public, amaze them. The occasion had already been served on a silver platter. In fact, on 29 June 1994 a garden party was scheduled at the Serpentine Gallery in London, in Hyde Park. A fundraiser organized by Vanity Fair. A very important event for the British aristocracy with guaranteed media coverage.
At the last minute the princess putted aside Valentino’s dress and chose another one, created by the Greek designer Christina Stambolian. The designer had created that dress three years before the London event. Lady Diana, however, had judged it “too bold” for the role it held at court. Black sheath dress, tight-fitting, short up to the knees, very little princely side slit, décolleté on display thanks to a deep “boat” neckline, bare arms,in conclusion that dress broke all the rules of royal protocol. Exactly what the princess needed, later on it was nominated “the revenge dress”.
It was the first time that people had discovered the new Diana, the one who didn’t need the royal family, especially Prince Charles.
That night Diana hit rock bottom and climbed into a future she hoped would be blazing, proving she had learned well the difficult lessons taught by life within the walls of Buckingham Palace.
