She was probably the most famous royal in modern history - as celebrated in life as she has been in death.

Princess Diana was known for her extraordinary charity work, as well as her style and aplomb when it came to fashion sense. So it made total sense to curators at London's Kensington Palace (the place Diana used to call home) to display some of most gorgeous dresses when the palace reopens to the public next week.

It's undergone a £12m renovation just in time for London 2012 Olympic visitors. And there's no doubt in anyone's mind where the focus of attention will be.

An exhibition about Queen Victoria takes over the house and there's also a chance for visitors to chart the history of the princesses (and their princes) who've lived in the Palace, down the ages. 'Diana: Glimpses of a modern princess' opens next Monday and is on until 2nd of September.
