Princess Diana, One Day One Dress: 29th April 1985, Vatican

The Princess of Wales meets Pope John Paul II at the Vatican on 29 April 1985. At this occasion the Princess is required to adhere to the demands of protocol and wears a calf-length black lace dress by Catherine Walker. The Victorian style dress with a dropped V-shaped skirt is worn with a lace veil in the same fabric. The back view reveals some exquisite button detailing. Protocol also demanded that the Princess wear gloves, an accessory not much used in her working wardrobe.
