Princess Diana The first photograph I am going to analyse is an image of the iconic Princess of Wales Diana; this image was taken by the celebrated photographer Mario Testino. This was within a series of other photographs which were produced into a book called ‘Diana, Princess of Wales’, it was published in 2007, sadly this was 10 years after the sudden death of Diana.
On Monday July 21st in 1997, Princess Diana visited Northwick Park Hospital at Harrow in London. It was her first public engagement since returning from her summer holiday in St Tropez, and she wore a red shift dress with gold double buckle belt by designer Catherine Walker. This was Diana's last Engagement before her death in August 1997.
PRINCESS DIANA AND THE LANDMINES Diana worked to de-mine regions of Southern Angola in January 1997. Her personal support is said to have been a significant factor in encouraging Britain and other countries to support the Ottawa Treaty, a bid to introduce a ban on the use of anti-personnel landmines. Her contributions were noted in Robin Cook's speech when he brought the second reading of the landmine bill to the House in 1998.
