Two dresses that were worn by Diana, Princess of Wales will be put on display to the public after they were bought by a charity at an auction yesterday. Ten of her dresses were on sale in the auction.
Historic Royal Palaces, which runs Diana's former residence Kensington Palace, bought the dresses for nearly £130,000. It is hoping to display at least one of the new dresses in an exhibition this summer alongside other items from the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection.
The dress that Princess Diana was wearing when she danced with John Travolta at a White House dinner was sold at auction for £240,000 today - the anonymous buyer said he wanted to surprise his wife.
It was one of ten of her dresses that were put up for auction this afternoon. In total, they raised £862,800. Two of the dresses were bought by a British museum and will go on display to the public.
