Article from the June 29th issue of the UK's Daily Express newspaper, reporting on the new exhibition at Kensington Palace starting on July 4th called "Fashion Rules" featuring dresses worn by Princess Diana, Princess Margaret and her majesty the Queen.
An Audi convertible which once belonged to Princess Diana sold for £36,500 at an auction on Saturday at Blenheim Palace.
The 2.3E car, seen below, in which Princess Diana is pictured getting into after a gym session in 1994, attracted interest from Norway, India, Australia and America but eventually sold to a UK bidder.
Auction manager Nick Wiles, of Coys classic car specialists in Kensington, said: “The Audi only had 21,000 miles on the clock and was as good as new. On a fine day the owner might go for a drive in it, but it is basically a collector’s item.”
