Remembering "The People's Princess"

2017 marks the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana's death. And, opening in February 2017, a new exhibition at Kensington Palace will celebrate her life and the evolution of her image and style. The palace was a place of unique significance in the Princess's life and the focus of a worldwide tribute following her death as thousands of people left an unforgettable sea of flowers at the gates. Echoing this tribute 20 years on, the palace gardeners will celebrate the Princess's life with a beautiful White Garden reflecting the seasons from spring to late summer.

Itinerary

Day One

Leaving your local pick-up point, this morning we'll head to Royal Windsor. Wander the pretty streets, and explore the tea rooms, art galleries and boutiques of this lovely riverside town. Alternatively, visit Windsor Castle - the largest inhabited castle in the world (entry payable locally). See the lavish State Apartments including St George's Hall, the Grand Reception Room and the new Lantern Lobby. There's also a fascinating exhibition about the 1992 fire and the subsequent restoration.

In the late afternoon we'll continue to London and our hotel.

Day Two

This morning we'll head to Kensington Palace, which is about a 15 minute walk through Kensington Gardens from the coach drop-off point. Like Windsor, it remains a working royal residence as the official London home of Prince William and his family, as well as other members of the Royal Family. See some of the finest in the Royal Collection, which hang in pride of place along the King's Gallery, and the surprisingly intimate Queen's Apartments. Learn about life in the Stuart and Georgian royal courts, and marvel at the Palace's new exhibition - Diana: Her Fashion Story.

The highlight of your visit, the exhibition charts the Princess's changing style and image over the years. See items from her wardrobe that were selected to complement a range of different occasions - whether formal, charity or glamorous galas. From late April, you'll also have the opportunity to stroll through the new, commemorative White Garden and past the paved terraces ornamental pond and brilliant beds of the Sunken Garden.

We'll leave London in the mid-afternoon, arriving back at your original pick-up point by mid-to-late evening.
