Princess Diana was an ardent campaigner against landmines and raised funds to help those injured by them and to support clearance of them from war zones. To call attention to the issue, she visited countries where landmines were still being found and still injuring people many years after their wars had ended. The body armor she wore was part of the exhibition Diana: A Celebration. The exhibiton was shown at Althorp, Diana's family home, until the end of August 2013 and toured until 2014.
