Princess Diana’s garden will be filled with her favourite flowers after gardeners interviewed friends and family for the commemorative display.
The White Garden has been planted with flowers and foliage inspired by memories of Diana’s life, style and image, such as her white “Elvis” Catherine Walker dress, currently on display inside Kensington Palace and the final one in the exhibition, pictured by Mario Testino in 1997.
Gardeners have spoken to family and friends of the princess to choose the blooms, such as forget-me-nots which her brother Earl Spencer remembered giving her as a child.
The garden’s special display, which took a year to prepare, can be viewed from a public walkway and will be at its best until September. The White Garden, already open and free to the public, commemorates the 20 years since the princess died in a Paris car crash.
