Featuring images taken by her official royal photographer, Anwar Hussein, the exhibition showcases the intimate relationship between the Princess of Wales and the camera, as well as never-before-seen sides of Diana captured on film.

Previously, the exhibition has toured the globe, selling out dates from Los Angeles to Puerto Rico. 

And now, it will call the Ultimo precinct of Sydney home from April 10th, 2024.

Alongside Anwar’s photographs, his sons Samir and Zak share first-hand accounts of previously unheard stories about Diana, and the royal family’s biggest moments through an in-depth audio guide. 

Both men followed in their father’s esteemed footsteps, the Hussein family collectively spending over four decades working alongside both the princess and her famous family. 

As a result of this, they received special access to document the lives of the royals in public, as well as during intimate, private moments – images of which have now been shown to the Australian public for the first time.

Anwar is known for changing perceptions of the royal family through his artistic decision to capture more candid, casual photos – better portraying the humanity of those captured on camera, whilst Samir and Zak are recognisable for their work capturing the lives of Diana’s sons Prince William and Prince Harry. 

The exhibition will take visitors on an emotional exploration of the princess’ life in various themed sections: The Photography Dark Room, Growing, Glam, Hats & Tiaras, Art Installations, Humanitarian, and Unguarded.

“The exhibit also features bespoke art installations developed exclusively for the exhibition by renowned multimedia artist, Pauline Loctin, as well as engaging photo opportunities to commemorate their experience.”
