Cincinnati to host end of public tour of Princess Diana exhibit


CINCINNATI — The Cincinnati Museum Center will be the last stop next year on the public exhibition tour for the wedding dress and other items of the late Princess Diana.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the exhibit titled “Diana: A Celebration” also displays a tiara among 150 pieces of memorabilia about the famed and ill-fated Lady Diana Spencer, killed in a 1997 car crash in Paris.

The items are on loan from the Althorp Estate, the Spencer family’s ancestral home in England. They will be turned over to Diana’s sons later.

The center will host the exhibit from Feb 14-Aug. 17.

It includes the ivory silk dress she wore before a global audience in her 1981 wedding, designer gowns and suits, home movies and photos, and condolence books signed by the public.
