Did you know that Princess Diana's shoes that she wore on the wedding day had a special message written for Prince Charles. According to media reports, after 40 years after the big day, the bottom of Diana's heels had a "C 'heart' D" painted on it- marking the initials for 'Charles' and 'Diana'. 

But of course, since it was under the 25-foot train of the gown, it missed people's eyes back then. Her shoes were designed and embroidered with 542 sequins and 132 pearls. Though the couple couldn't enjoy their married life, their wedding was dreamy literally.

The grand celebration attracted eyeballs from across the globe, and everything about this big day in the British Royal Family history found its mention in the news.
Princess Diana looked like a fairy in her fairy dress, and her dress was much talked about in the press with numerous editorial pieces.

Earlier, Clive Shelton, who had designed this shoe for Diana, revealed once that the Princess was very particular about her shoe, and she made it clear that she wanted to have a low heel and this special message at the bottom. Since Diana was already very tall, 5'10"- she was concerned about looking taller than Charles with the high heels. 

The original plan was to make the shoe out of the same fabric as her wedding day, but they realised the dress material was very fine, so, instead opted for a heavier silk satin made the sole from a soft suede; so that the bride would not slip. It took over six months for Clive and his team to come up with the final product.
