Princess Diana Postage Stamps and Covers - How much are they really worth
There are 2 types of postage stamps featuring princess Diana: official issues by authorized postal authorities and what philatelists call "Sand Dunes". Sand Dunes stamps have no postal values, They are pretty much just nice stickers. Sand Dunes are often refer to as "wallpaper".
Are princess Diana stamps worth a lot of money? Short answer is no. There is no rare Princess Diana stamps. Most of them (official and sand dune) were issued by the millions.
So, when adding to your collection, please don't spend too much on stamps. they are pretty, but cheap.

Should I Buy Princess Diana Coins?
Yes of course, but....
Collecting Princess Diana coins can be rather expensive but let's be honest, those colorized commemorative coins are nice. Will they take value over the years? I doubt it. If you want to invest stick to real Gold and Silver Princess Diana coins. I am not saying don't buy anything else, but please don't expect colorized coins to rise much in value (if at all). They are beautiful pieces to own and make for a great collection.

Looking At Princess Diana Fashion
When it comes to easy going, but classy style, Princess Diana had all the bases covered. She was never extravagant, yet always remained deeply elegant. The clothing she wore portrayed a woman that knew where she was and where she was going. Princess Diana fashion trends will always be remembered because of the woman behind them.
The Memorable Gown
Most people remember Diana’s wedding gown more than any other garment she wore. The wonderment on everyone’s faces during her wedding due to her gown was phenomenal. However, the Princess wore some styles after being married that are still impacting the world of fashion today. The simple suits she wore have become a staple in every business woman’s wardrobe. Neat, short cut suits that were casual yet offered a look that could be worn in more formal occasions are the perfect addition to any wardrobe. These kinds of dresses were worn by Diana on several occasions.
World renowned couturiere Catherine Walker designed many of the gowns and other outfit the Princess wore. In fact, Princess Diana was buried in a gown she had purchased from Walker only a few weeks before her untimely death. Walker designed over 1,000 outfits for the Princess, always designing styles that were both unique and fashionable enough to be worn over and over again. The outfits the Princess wore showed who she was in many aspects, from colors to fit.
A Little Red
A red dress the Princess was photographed wearing in the weeks before she passed is a perfect example of the true Princess and her passionate personality. The dress was cut above the knee, was sleeveless in tank style and sported a small gold buckled belt. While this dress was extremely simple in its design, it spoke volumes of the woman wearing it. Clothing that allows you to be to the point without saying a word is the Princess Diana fashion she wore most often. The formal gowns the Princess wore also hinted sweet compassion in stately designs. Princess Diana will never be forgotten because of who she was, but her clothing and passion for great style set a fashion trend that is still going in circles of women all around the globe today.

Buying Princess Diana Autographs
Buyer beware. Princess Diana autographs can be considered high end collectibles. Expensive. Because of her popularity, there is a load of fake autographs running around. If you plan on buying a Princess of Wales autograph you should buy it from a reputable Auction House. And know your stuff. I would never buy from eBay. Better pay a premium and have the real thing than be stuck with a worthless fake.
