The collection of favourite Diana’s music will be presented to the public for the first time, Princes William and Harry decided to open this private belonging of their mother. An exhibition opens this weekend at Buckingham Palace.
Princess Diana’s sons are going to meet people with the musical collection of their mother, the exhibition recreates part of Diana’s sitting room at Kensington Palace. The young princess had an impressive soundtrack of pop and classical greats of the ’80s and ’90s at her fingertips as she worked from her desk at home.
Among Diana’s favourite performers are George Michael, Elton John’s Greatest Hits Volume II, Diana Ross (Love Child, The Ultimate Collection), Dancing on the Ceiling by Lionel Richie.
The royal had a great respect for the classical music as well, the cassette with Verdi’s Il Trovatore (featuring her signature — perhaps to ward off anyone taking it!) and another famous Italian tenors Carreras, Domingo and Pavarotti are kept in a case full of old cassette tapes. This eclectic collection of music was added to a display at Buckingham Palace by Princes William and Harry.
