Two of Diana's dresses to go on public display

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.
