The eye-catching pillar-box red knit featuring several white sheep with one lone black sheep was first seen on the royal way back in 1981, when she paired it with a ruffle collar and dark jeans for a casual outing. She was spotted wearing it again two years later in 1983 during a visit to the Polo with the Prince of Wales.

Emma Corrin even wore a replica of the jumper during season four of The Crown, which sparked a huge resurgence in interest in the cosy knit and prompted original creators, British knitwear brand Warm & Wonderful, to re-release it.

The brand was founded by friends Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne back in 1979 and began with a market stall in Covent Garden. Following Diana's purchase, the brand saw a huge surge in popularity, and the duo were able to open the first proper Warm & Wonderful shop in Primrose Hill.

Today, they are now located a stone's throw away from their humble beginnings in Seven Dials, and Diana's own copy of the jumper is part of the permanent collection at the V&A Museum in London.

However, a little known fact is that Diana actually had two copies. Sally revealed in an interview for The Daily Telegraph that her original, worn in 1981, was accidentally damaged. She explained: "It was sent back to us with a very charming letter from her secretary, saying how much she loved it and could we mend it. We decided that rather than cobble together the damaged one, we'd make her a perfect new one, which is what we did. Hence, the two."

Although she isn’t certain how Diana damaged the first one, she added that she always imagined that "her enormous engagement ring caught in the threads."
