Here's Everything We Know About Princess Diana's New Garden at Kensington Palace
The White Garden is inspired by memories of Diana's life, image, and style, like the white Catherine Walker piece she dubbed the "Elvis dress" that is currently on view at Kensington Palace's summer exhibition.
The late princess lived at Kensington Palace for 15 years and reportedly had a keen interest in the gardens. The newly reopened area, formerly called the Sunken Garden, marks the anniversary of her death in a car accident in Paris.
"She would stop and she would have a chat with the gardeners and comment on all their hard work," Head Gardener Sean Harkin told the Evening Standard (Harkin is also shown in a video below). "There's gardeners who aren't here anymore but remember, and told me stories, about when they were working here in the Sunken Garden. And they remember Princess Diana coming by and she would stop and she would admire the changing floral displays in the garden."
