Diana: A Celebration Coming to Louisville

 For ticket information: 
This post is for my local and "not-so-local" friends who might be interested in attending
the "Diana: A Celebration" exhibit at the
 Frazier History Museum in Louisville, KY.
I have seen this exhibit twice. 
The first time was at Althorp estate in England where
I met her brother, the Earl of Spencer.
The second time was several years ago at a museum in Dayton, Ohio.
We took our granddaughter KJ to that exhibit.  Oh how she loved seeing all the
beautiful evening gowns, the wedding gown and diamond tiaras!    
Proceeds from the exhibit benefit The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund,
which continues the princess' humanitarian work by supporting charities worldwide.
Since the exhibition opened at Althorp in 1998,
it has generated more than $2 million for the fund.
I recently spoke by phone with a lady at the museum who said due to the
interest anticipated for the exhibition, they recommend advance purchase of tickets.
My family is already planning our trip to Louisville,
including brunch at Lynn's Paradise Cafe and afternoon tea at Sister's Tea Parlor.
I just love traveling with GJ and AJ.

Oh how fun, Linda! Lori Bloss and I saw it when it was in Grand Rapids, MI in Feb. 2011. There were no tea rooms for us to visit afterwards, so we went to the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel for tea in one of their restaurants. A replica of Princess Diana's wedding cake was on display in the foyer.

I went to that exhibit when it was here, and it was really wonderful! The wedding dress and shoes were even more elaborate that you could ever see in pictures. The pictures of her as a little girl, the beautiful gowns she wore. What a tragedy that she was taken so young.

Sounds like fun! Enjoy!

I was lucky enough to see this too. It was wonderful. Lucky you to get to see it across the pond. What was Diana's brother like? How did you get to meet him?

I saw this exhibit in Atlanta and loved it too! Bought lots of goodies, including a tea towel, tea, a teacup ... you're not surprised -- and probably have the same goodies!
