Diana: A Celebration

Since the beginning of American history, our nation has had a complicated relationship with British royalty, and an unending fascination with the government we overthrew in 1776. Known to many as “The People’s Princess,” Princess Diana was a unique member of the royal family who won the hearts of millions.

Making its East Coast debut, and returning to the United States for the first time since 2007, the award-winning exhibition hosted by the National Constitution Center explores Diana's childhood, her engagement to HRH Prince Charles, their royal wedding, their children, and Diana's life and work as a global humanitarian and model citizen. Diana: A Celebration was on loan from the Althorp Estate, the Spencer Family’s 500-year-old ancestral home in England. The more than 150 artifacts include Diana’s royal wedding gown, diamond tiara, veil, 25-foot train, shoes, parasol, and bridesmaid’s dress.

Diana: A Celebration was produced by Arts and Exhibitions International, in association with the Althorp Estate, Cultural Networks International Inc. The exhibition was presented locally by Macy’s, and CBS 3 and The CW Philly were the official media partners.
