The internationally acclaimed photography exhibition about the world’s most famous Princess will give visitors new insight into her incredible life. Princess Diana: Accredited Access Exhibition, will open at Dockside Vaults in St Katharine Docks, near London’s Tower Bridge, in May. 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.

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. Accredited by the Royal Family, the Husseins are the longest-standing family of Official Royal Photographers, having collectively spent more than 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 and captured more intimate, private moments. Each photo has a story that hasn’t been told before and is shared in the exhibition’s in-depth audio guide. Some of the 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 are now multi-award-winning photographers themselves.

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.
