Mall of America to welcome Princess Diana exhibition

The Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota is to host a large exhibition show-casing Princess Diana until June 10th 2012.

The event is part of the celebrations that will be held throughout next year to mark the 20th anniversary of the mall opening its doors in 1992.

Among the exhibits will be Diana’s iconic dress from her fairy tale wedding to Prince Charles in 1981 and 28 of her other stunning designer dresses.

Also included are a number of family heirlooms, personal mementos, items connected to her extensive charity work, paintings and rare home movies and photos.

The original text of Earl Spencer’s moving tribute to his sister at her funeral in 1997 in Westminster Abbey and books of condolences left by people throughout the world can also be viewed.

There are 150 objects in total which will be displayed in nine galleries on Level 4 of the mall.

They are all on loan from Althorp Estate, the Spencer family’s ancestral home.
