Princess Diana, One Day One Dress: 9th April 1987, Middlesex hospital, London

The Princess of Wales challenged prejudice towards HIV in April 1987 when she famously held hands with an AIDS patient for the cameras when opening the first purpose-built AIDS ward at Middlesex Hospital in London. A breakthrough gesture at the time, after shaking hands with nine victims, the Princess helped dispelling fears that the disease can be caught by normal social contact. It also showed her compassion and commitment to her charities. For the occasion, Diana wore a discreet tight-fitting royal blue dress by Victor Edelstein.
