Lady Diana Spencer looking shy standing beside then-fiancé Prince Charles

Princess Diana, even at her simplest and most casual attire, certainly still looked regal, don't you think?

Today marks what would have been the 32nd wedding anniversary of Prince Charles and Princess Diana. Hailed as one of the most iconic women of her time, Princess Diana won the hearts of her people the moment she became betrothed to Charles, Prince of Wales. Her publicized courtship and wedding turned her into an instant fashion icon, loved for her simple yet elegant looks.

Case in point is the photo above, taken during a pre-wedding photo call in May 1981 while the royal lovebirds were on vacation in Balmoral, the Royal Family’s Scottish residence. Then still Lady Diana Spencer and having just turned 20, she looked every bit regal even in a simple ensemble of bright patterned sweater, white turtleneck, brown trousers, red socks, and dark green wellies.
