New exhibition tells the story of Princess Diana — through her dresses A new exhibition at Kensington Palace will display many of the outfits Princess Diana wore. LONDON—The dresses tell the story of a life cut short: first the frilly debutante frocks Princess Diana wore before she married Prince Charles, then the elaborate gowns that stunned the world, and finally the power suits she favoured shortly before her death.
