Princess Diana may have been known as the People’s Princess, but her style was famously high-class. From Versace to Dior and Ferragamo, the Sandringham-born Royal counted some of the world’s most iconic designers among her favourites.
But in the final years of her life, there was one luxury label that Diana avoided: Chanel.
The French fashion house’s designs were a staple of the mother-of-two’s looks throughout the 1980s; its bags and shoes, in particular.
But in the mid 1990s, that changed. Around the same time Prince Charles publicly confessed to having an affair during a television interview, Diana stopped wearing the label’s accessories altogether. A decision, it would seem, that was entirely deliberate.
