The Bill Pashley Tweed Hunting Suit

This tweed sports suit, worn for the famous photo shoot in the grounds of Balmoral, was made for Princess Diana’s honeymoon by designer Bill Pashley. Two copies were made and Diana chose the larger one as there was more room in the shoulders for shooting. The Princess of Wales asked Mr Pashley not to make the design for anyone else. He kept his word and stored the smaller unworn suit in a cupboard in his studio, only rediscovering it during a clean-out earlier this year. The designer generously donated the ensemble to Historic Royal Palaces. It is rare to find an informal outfit created for the Princess of Wales in a public collection: most are evening dresses.    UK Independent
