If you’ve recently come into a ton of money, and love Princess Diana, then listen up!

Kerry Taylor Auctions, the same UK auction house that sold the dress Kate Middleton modeled in college, has acquired a closet full of Princess Diana's dresses and auctioning them off next month.

The Fit for a Princess auction will take place on March 19th and will include some of Di's most iconic gowns, including the velvet Victor Edelstein she wore while dancing with John Travolta at the White House.

If this all sounds familiar, no you're not going crazy. The gowns were previously for sale in 2011, but only four sold. And since owner Maureen Rorech Dunkel defaulted on a loan and filed for bankruptcy, she's decided to give it another go.

Other pieces in the collection include a Zandra Rhodes chiffon cocktail gown, a plethora of Catherine Walker frocks and a black velvet Bruce Oldfield gown Princess Diana wore for her official portrait in 1985.

The auction house expects the sale of Diana's dresses to bring in at least $1 million, if not more!

Dayum! Considering how much some of her other dresses have sold for, we wouldn't be surprised if the auction exceeded their expectations!

Check out what's up for grabs in the gallery (below)!
