Nottingham: May 17, 1990, Princess Diana demonstrates her sign language skills, above, at the Nottingham and Notts Society for the Deaf in Forest Road, during their Centenary Celebrations.
They all wanted to say it with flowers when Princess Diana went on a walkabout in Nottingham. The Princess, looking stunning in a primrose yellow and pink two-piece summer suit by Catherine Walker, was showered with them.
Hundreds had waited hours just to catch a glimpse of Princess Diana on her whistle-stop tour of the city. They were not disappointed. Royal fever spread through crowds from Forest Road to Bulwell.
The busy Princess visited the Raleigh factory, toured a social, residential centre for multi-handicapped adults on Bestwood Road in Bulwell, and officially opened the new indoor tennis complex at Highfields, University Boulevard.
