This was widely understood to be vengeance.
In contravention of royal protocol, Princess Diana was seen in an off-the-shoulder, revealing dress while Prince Charles admitted to her unfaithfulness.
Now her arrival at a glitzy event in what became known as her ‘revenge dress’ has been recreated by Elizabeth Debicki for the hit series The Crown.
The new images depict Diana, the 31-year old Australian actress getting out of her vehicle to go to the 1994 Vanity Fair at the Serpentine Gallery.

Prince Charles’s husband Prince Charles admitted to her being unfaithful and Princess Diana, (pictured) broke royal protocol by stepping out in an off-the-shoulder, revealing dress.
The star looked strikingly similar to the princess as she filmed scenes for the Netflix drama in a replica of the £900 Christina Stambolian silk crepe cocktail dress with side sash.
Diana purchased the dress in 1991. However, she considered the design too risky to wear.
Charles, his now wife Camilla Parker-Bowes admitted to Jonathan Dimbleby in a television documentary that Charles wore the dress she was wearing the night before.
Emma Corrin has been replaced by Miss Debicki as Diana, 25-year-old actress. She wore the same sapphire and diamond necklace the Princess wore the night before.
Diana made it using a sapphire-diamond brooch she was given by Queen Mother for her wedding gift.
Miss Debicki was pictured filming the scenes on Monday at the gallery in Hyde Park, a stone’s throw from Kensington Palace.
Elsewhere, the actress was photographed recreating Diana’s first encounter with billionaire Mohamed Fayed.
At a polo match, she could be seen talking with Salim Dau, 71-year-old former Harrods owner.

Mr Fayed’s film producer son Dodi won Diana’s heart before both were killed when their Mercedes crashed in a tunnel in Paris in August 1997.
According to reports, Khalid Abdalla from the UK, aged 40, was cast as Dodi.
With the Fayeds having been cast, it is likely the fifth series of The Crown – due in November next year – will detail the final months of Diana’s life.
The fourth series, which streamed in November last year, told the story of Charles and Diana’s early romance.
Their relationship breakdown will be a central part of the fifth series and likely to lead the way to Diana’s romance with Dodi.
Also, the show will feature footage from 1992’s Windsor Castle fire.
