We Had NO IDEA Princess Diana Attended the London Premiere of Steel Magnolias!
See her with the cast!
Just when we thought we couldn’t love Princess Diana any more than we already do, we recently discovered something that made our hearts burst (yet again) for the late royal.
In February 1990, on the arm of her then husband, Prince Charles, Diana attended the London premiere of Steel Magnolias—A.K.A. our favorite movie of all time.
Dressed in a burgundy velvet evening dress designed by Catherine Walker (a Kate Middleton favorite), the always-elegant princess was introduced to the star-studded cast. In a photo that recently made the rounds on Twitter, Diana can be seen mingling with Sally Field, Olympia Dukakis and Daryl Hannah on the red carpet before heading into The Odeon Leicester Square for a viewing.
Oh what we wouldn’t give to be a fly on that wall!

Perhaps with a little bit of magic from Diana herself, Steel Magnolias, the beloved Southern dramedy about sisterhood and family set it fictional Chinquipin, Louisiana, went on to wow generations of fans all over the world.
