By 11 p.m., 45 minutes after the first warning of fire, police officials arrived and ordered everyone to evacuate. Smith argued with officers. She didn’t want to leave the animals, but they gave her no choice. They put her into a vehicle and she drove away, crying uncontrollably. “This place is my home,” Smith says. “I spend more time here than I do at the home I pay a mortgage on. Peter and Nancy are family to me. The animals are like my children. I thought this would be the last time I would see it.”.

The workmanship is refined, some of the designs are simple in concept and execution, while others clearly took careful thought and meticulous preparation. One room features designers’ sketches for Diana dresses, offering insight into the vision behind many of her choices. Deirdre Murphy, senior curator at the Historic Royal Palaces, said Diana was unique in the way she used clothes to communicate — and also a risk-taker willing to challenge the unwritten conventions of royal dress. She said Diana captured the “mystique” of being a princess even as she occasionally dressed down in jeans and a baseball hat.
