Looks like the Monarchy isn't totally above participating in all the fervor for royal fashion. Five dresses from Princess Diana's celebrated wardrobe will be displayed at Kensington Palace beginning in March.

According to WWD:

"The centerpiece of the show will be the black silk taffeta Emanuel gown that cemented Diana's status as a fashion plate when she wore it at her first official engagement with Prince Charles in 1981. The other dresses on show are a fuchsia silk chiffon sari-style dress and an ivory silk crepe dinner dress, both by Catherine Walker, a black and white cocktail dress by Bellville Sassoon Lorcan Mullany and a black silk shift dress by Versace."

Princess Diana's wedding dress is still on display, as seen at left, and drawing millions of visitors.

Seems a little funny given their history that the Diana display is part of the celebrations for Queen Elizabeth II's diamond jubilee. The exhibit will help showcase a $19 million refurbishment of Kensington Palace.
