The internationally acclaimed photography exhibition about the world’s most famous Princess will give visitors new insight into her incredible life. It will offer visitors the opportunity to get to know Princess Diana and her story on a deeper level through a behind-the-lens journey. Princess Diana: Accredited Access Exhibition will open 25 May 2024 at Dockside Vaults in St Katharine Docks, near London’s Tower Bridge. Tickets are available to order now from £17 at PrincessDiana.London.

For the first time in the UK, world-famous Royal Photographers, Anwar Hussein and his two sons Samir and Zak, share their remarkable photographs of Princess Diana and her family, paired with first-hand accounts of the stories behind each moment. Every photo has a story behind it that hasn’t been heard before and is shared in the exhibition’s in-depth audio guide.

Accredited by the Royal Family, the Husseins make up the longest-standing family of Official Royal Photographers, having collectively spent over four decades working side-by-side with the Princess and her family. They received special access to document the lives of the Royals in public, as well as capturing more intimate, private moments.  Some of these iconic photos include Diana sitting alone outside the Taj Mahal, walking through a landmine field as part of her trip to Angola in 1997, the unforgettable revenge dress which dared to break Royal protocol and the Princess’ simple handshake with an AIDS patient that showed the world how to be human.

Samir and Zak followed their father’s footsteps into royal photography by capturing the lives of Diana’s sons Prince William and Prince Harry, and now are multi-award winning and celebrated photographers themselves.

The 60-minute experience includes complimentary access to the audio guide, with tickets available to pre-order now at PrincessDiana.London.

Anwar Hussein, official photographer for Princess Diana, comments:

“I am honoured and humbled to have been given the opportunity to photograph Princess Diana so extensively and to have had the pleasure of having many friendly and insightful conversations with her.  I am delighted that the images captured, as well as those of my sons, are coming home to London to recognise and memorialise such a remarkable woman and her sons. There are so many memories of our two families connecting and creating a special relationship, which I am pleased to be able to display in such a unique way through the exhibition.”
