Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the recipient: “Princess Diana, Prince William and Prince Harry personally presented me with this gift as a thank you before their departure from Hotel Arlberg in Lech-Austria in March 1993 where they enjoyed their Family Winter Skiing Holidays…My position in Hotel Arlberg at the time of the visits from 1991 to 1994 was Housekeeper/Gouvernante, so I was responsible for their well-being in the rooms/suites/hotel from the time of arrival until departure…I was so touched by the very relaxed, loving family atmosphere that Princess Diana and her sons had in their privacy.”
