Long-forgotten portraits reveal few better at capturing Diana's luminous beauty, writes RICHARD KAY

Few were better at capturing Diana’s luminous beauty than Lord Snowdon as shown in this picture of the princess which has resurfaced ahead of the 25th anniversary of her tragic death, writes RICHARD KAY


Long before the world’s photographers had discovered Lady Diana Spencer, she was already displaying an extraordinarily natural poise in front of the cameras.

Over the years few were better at capturing her luminous beauty than Lord Snowdon, the society cameraman and ex-husband of the Queen’s sister Princess Margaret.

The images he shot were some of the most iconic and memorable of Diana ever taken.
