On, January 17th, 2013, RR Auction, located in Amherst, NH is to host an auction live and online powered by Artfact Live!. The one day sale will include over 750 lots of authentic autographed memorabilia and rare signed documents. Lot 488 is gaining a particular amount of media attention. The photograph is a previously unpublished picture of Princess Diana, taken in 1979 or 1980 prior to her marriage to Prince Charles. The intimate picture is marked “NOT TO BE PUBLISHED” for reasons unknown. The possibilities are endless and many believe the picture did not surface for copy right reasons or to avoid embarrassing Diana and Charles.
