TRANSPORT INTO LIFE AS
WORLD-FAMOUS ROYALTY

Through the designer fashions and personal effects of Princess Diana and the Royals

After years of extensive research and detailed planning, exhibit organizers are proud to announce the August opening of “Princess Diana: A Tribute Exhibition.” The 10,000-square-foot royal exhibit will assume long-term permanent residency inside The Shops at Crystals on the Las Vegas Strip.  

The exhibition is created and produced by SBX Group and SEE Global Entertainment in partnership with Pink Ribbons Crusade, a 501(c)(3) all-volunteer charity sharing its multi-million-dollar collection of Diana artifacts and royal family memorabilia to raise funds to fight breast cancer. Organizers worked to curate the exhibit from a collection of Diana and British royal memorabilia considered by many to be the world’s most comprehensive – a collection that has taken the internationally respected charity more than 45 years to assemble.

Beginning at the ancestral estate of Diana’s family and journeying through her whirlwind introduction to and ultimate reinvention of royal life, the exhibition will contain 12 themed rooms anchored by three standout collections: “Wedding of the Century,” “Fashion Icon” and “Gone Too Soon: A Memorial.” 

In the “Wedding” room, visitors will be transported to one of the most memorable events in royal family history – the wedding of Lady Diana Spencer to Prince Charles on July 29, 1981. On display will be a life-size recreation of Princess Diana’s wedding gown – the most famous wedding dress of all time. Intricately created by world-renowned Belgian artist and sculptor Isabelle de Borchgrave, the voluptuous gown was exclusively commissioned by Pink Ribbons Crusade for this exhibition. De Borchgrave is considered the world’s leading artist in the manipulation of paper and paint. Her historically authentic, awe-inspiring collection has been displayed in some of the world’s most prestigious museums. An extensive collection of historic wedding artifacts will also be shown in the “Wedding” room. 

In the “Fashion Icon” room, visitors can admire the largest on-display collection of Diana’s iconic fashions, including famous creations from her favorite designer Catherine Walker to her good friend Gianni Versace. Nine historical textiles will be featured, including eight well-known evening dresses worn by the trend-setting princess at world events and on royal tours.

Additionally, organizers commissioned exquisite, 18-inch-tall exclusive replicas of the 79 personal dresses Diana herself pulled from her designer wardrobe to sell at Christie’s Auction in New York to support a few of her favorite charities. This world-famous event took place eight weeks before her 1997 death and generated more than $3.25 million. Created by talented seamstresses worldwide, the 79 miniature dresses took more than three years to create. With detailed miniscule beadwork and exacting embroidery, these small but intricate gowns possess artisanal handiwork that easily rivals that of well-known labels from Paris and London.

The “Gone Too Soon: A Memorial” room will vividly transport visitors to the unbelievable week of Diana’s passing and funeral. From August 31 through September 7, 1997, the world stood still as people across the globe grieved. Including a breathtaking recreation of the people’s vigil, this room will feature a floral installation and striking Palace gates reproduced to their actual size.

Beyond these signature rooms, more carefully curated collections will give guests additional glimpses into “Life as A Royal,” including other historical textiles dating from Queen Victoria to Kate Middleton. An audio guide will provide visitors with an intimate tour of the more than 500 original items and personal objects belonging (or relating) to Diana as well as other well-known royals, including Prince Charles, Queen Elizabeth II, Prince William and Prince Harry.

Adding a significant amount of exclusive photography to the exhibition will be Anwar Hussein, the longest-standing living professional photographer of the royal family, who began his career capturing royal photos in the 1960s.

Advance tickets to “Princess Diana” A Tribute Exhibition” will be announced in the upcoming weeks. Email subscribers to dianalasvegas.com will receive private access to an exclusive ticket pre-sale. A portion of each ticket sale will be donated to Pink Ribbons Crusade to assist in its fight against breast cancer.
