Diana of Wales, on the 26th anniversary of her death: her symbolic black sheep sweater is auctioned

Diana of Wales’s most iconic sweater is up for auction. It’s about the black sheep sweatshirt. The appointment will be at the Sotheby’s house in New York on the occasion of the 26th anniversary of the death of the princess, on August 31, 1997 in Paris. In the photo, the exhibition of the piece, in London, before traveling to the United States.

The iconic red jumper with the black sheep, from Warm & Wonderful, symbolizes Diana’s feelings inside the palace exposed to pressure from the Windsor family. This print was interpreted as a message seeking support. Diana used it on several occasions in 1981 when she was a spectator to see her husband, Carlos, play polo. She was 19 years old and was the fiancée of the heir. The piece could now fetch about 80,000 dollars (74,000 euros) at auction. The online bid starts on August 31, the date of her anniversary, and ends on September 14.

Bids on the costumes of the royal they happen. In Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, an event is being held in memory of the first wife of Charles of England, with the auction launch of her three most iconic dresses designed by Catherine Walker, one of Kate Middleton’s head dressmakers.

Just a few weeks ago, a princess look was sold for 533,000 euros. A strapless ball gown design with a velvet bodice, created by couturier Murray Arbeid in 1985.
