“In the palace’s newly-restored Orangery we’ll be displaying never-before-seen items from the archives of some of the most celebrated royal couturiers of the 20th century, alongside stunning gowns and tailoring created for three generations of royal women,” the post shared. “Royal Style in the Making opens Thursday 3 June.”
Diana and Prince Charles tied the knot on July 29, 1981. They officially divorced in 1996.
William, 38, and Harry, 36 are expected to reunite this summer. A statue for the Princess of Wales, commissioned by the brothers in 2017 will be installed on what would have been her 60th birthday, BBC News previously reported. It will be unveiled on July 1st and the two princes are scheduled to appear at Kensington Palace for the occasion.
According to the outlet, the princes said they hoped the permanent sculpture would help all those who visit Kensington Palace to “reflect on her life and her legacy.”

“Our mother touched so many lives,” the pair added.
