Diana moved into Apartments 8 and 9 in Kensington Palace with Prince Charles after the couple tied the knot. She kept several framed photos of herself and her sons Prince William and Prince Harry hanging on one wall.

She also had a yellow sofa holding countless soft toys which, no doubt, were for her sons.

Diana got ready in her bedroom with a dressing table at the window. It featured a glass top with two side lamps, an oval-shaped mirror and a wooden chair. She also displayed yet more portraits of her sons on one wall, as well as other pieces of artwork. The windows had green checked and floral curtains.
