Princess Diana was ‘so relaxed’ on her day, says dress designer ...

The British designer Elizabeth Emanuel, who created Diana’s dress in 1981 with her then husband David Emanuel told an Irish television show that the princess was “laid back” on her day - July 29, 1981 - even though the world’s media were out in full force to capture the day’s events.

Speaking on the talk show Saturday with Miriam, the 64-year-old said: "Not at all, I think there was so much going on in the lead up to the , she was quite laid back. On the day she was so relaxed and took it in her stride."

She added that Princess Diana had lost a lot of weight before her day which meant that the pattern of the dress had to be redone.

Asked about what she remembered about being asked to design the dress, Ms Emanuel said: "I remember clearly, I was in the middle of a fitting with another bride and the phone just kept ringing and I thought somebody else could go and get it.

“So I answered the phone ‘yes hello’ and Diana was on the phone and she said will you please design my dress? She said you will have to keep it a secret."

She added: "There was no confidentiality agreements at that time and we were all in it alone.
