Diana: A Celebration has arrived at Mall of America here in the Twin Cities. I have my tickets and I can’t wait to see it. Though I was the age my daughter is now when Diana married Prince Charles, I remember the excitement and non-stop coverage of their wedding day. Next came the buzz of Prince William’s birth followed by the arrival of his younger brother Prince Henry. Fast forward to Princess Diana’s tragic death…that was one of those moments that many of us can recall exactly where we were when we heard the sad news.
Over the years the media loved sharing images of Princess Diana helping the poor. They also loved splashing her face across tabloids. Regardless of the situation, she always embodied a presence of grace and kindness that the world couldn’t help but love and adore.
Now through June 10 Mall of America visitors can remember the iconic Princess at Diana: A Celebration. This award-winning exhibition has nine galleries with over 150 objects including 28 of her stunning designer dresses, family heirlooms, personal mementos, jewels and rare home movies. I’m most looking forward to seeing Diana’s royal wedding dress.
Details: The exhibit is open daily and ticket prices start at $13.50 for children up to $23.50 for VIP passes. You may learn more about the event’s prices and hours on the Mall of America’s Diana: A Celebration page.
