Description: The Victor Edelstein Archive: Letter from Princess Diana, November 11th, 1987, on blue headed Kensington Palace stationery with Prince of Wales plumes cypher, which originally accompanied an official portrait by Terence Donovan of the Princess wearing the Edelstein green satin evening dress. In the letter she modestly apologises - 'I feel sure that the picture would be much better off without me in it and just a mass of green duchess satin instead! Anyway, you can always hide it or put it in the bin if you don't like the photograph!'; together with envelope also addressed in the Princess' hand (2) See KTA November 2017 lot 370 for a Victor Edelstein sketch of the satin dress the Princess describes in her letter.
