It is made of canteloupe-melon colour silk with white organza collar and cuffs. she matched it with a hat by John Boyd with ostrich feathers.
Days before her wedding Lady Diana Spencer attended a polo match at Windsor Great Park. A crowd of several thousands had shown up to see the future Princess. she wore a simple, patterned silk suit. The loose-fitting pale pink and white blouse is worn tucked into the skirt and has full elbow-length sleeves.
