The exhibition "brings together some of the most iconic images ever taken of the Royal Family", and it takes place at Kensington Palace.
The website reads: "For almost 200 years the medium of photography has created an unprecedented intimacy between Sovereign and subjects.
"The new display explores the British Royal Family’s enduring relationship with the camera; from Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s patronage of photography during its infancy to lesser known intimate family portraits, spanning from the 19th century right up until the present day."
Princess Diana married Prince Charles in July, 1981, and they got separated in 1992. Princess Diana tragically died in a car accident in 1997.
