She wore the ivory silk dress encrusted with jewels during a 1986 state visit to Bahrain. The housekeeper of a home belonging to one of Diana’s pals later gave it to a second-hand dress shop in Hereford. The new unnamed seller bought the David Emanuel frock in 1994 while working in the shop.

She kept it in a box in her wardrobe – but decided to part with it after seeing a documentary with Diana wearing it.

Kerry Taylor auctions, of south London, has valued it at up to £100,000 for the December 10 sale.
