Princess Diana, One Day One Dress: 15th December 1982, University College Hospital, London

For a visit to London’s University College Hospital in December 1982  the Princess chose a warm blue velvet suit by Caroline Charles. The two-piece suit has a jacket that fastens at the front with small buttons and has three-quarter length sleeves. The skirt is very full. A cummerbund belt in the same deep blue velvet completed the outfit. The Princess also wore a small cap covered in blue-grey velvet and decorated with a large, softly dyed ostrich feather. A delicate spotted face veil is sewn into the brim. It is a John Boyd creation.
