When she died, Kensington Palace became a sea of flowers. Twenty years on from the passing of Diana, Princess of Wales, a garden of scent will be planted to mark the anniversary of her death.

It's been announced that the twentieth anniversary of the death of Diana will see part of Kensington Palace's grounds turned into The White Garden in tribute to her. This temporary memorial will be filled with flowers inspired by Diana including tulips and narcissi as well as forget me nots to mark the twenty years.

There will also be a special exhibition of Diana's clothes as part of the anniversary events. Diana: Her Fashion Story will show her evolution into one of the most famous style icons of the late 20th century. It will feature clothes from the two decades of her public life, including the legendary dress worn to dance with John Travolta at the White House as well as items from her engagement portraits.

The  exhibition opens in February while the garden will welcome visitors as its flowers bloom from early spring onwards. Two decades on from her death, Diana remains a lasting figure in the history of modern royalty.
Diana, Her Fashion Story starts at Kensington Palace on February 24th 2017.
