KFC launches £35 replica of one of Princess Diana’s most famous jumpers

To celebrate the new release of the much anticipated movie Spencer, KFC has launched a brand new limited-edition jumper on their merchandise website.

The biopic is released in UK cinemas on Friday 5 November and tells a version of events based on the late Princess Diana's decision to separate from Prince Charles.

In line with the movie coming out, the much-loved fast food brand has specially re-designed one of Diana's most iconic and memorable jumpers… and in all honesty, it's rather fabulous.

The original jumper is worn by Kristen Stewart briefly in the film while in real life, Diana wore it in the early 1980s.

Back in 1981, a young Princess Diana arrived at a Windsor Polo match in a red jumper, known as the 'black sheep sweater'.

The bold red garment was made from fabric featuring white sheep silhouettes and one black one, hence the item's name.

The original piece was created by British Knitwear brand Warm & Wonderful in the late 70s.

In true KFC fashion, they have remade the well-known jumper keeping the same bright red colour but replacing the sheep with chickens.

The jumper costs just £35, with 100 per cent of the proceeds going to the KFC Foundation, to support grassroot organisations that work with young people across the UK.

Sizes start from a small up to an extra large, so everyone can look their best while embracing their inner Princess.

When season four of The Crown was released on Netflix, brand Rowing Blazers worked with the original designers of the sweater to create a tribute to Diana.

Whilst fans went crazy for the idea of getting their hands on a replica, which was also worn by Emma Corrin in the hit series it was priced at a whooping £280.

If you want to bag yourself one of these fabulous twists on this iconic fashion piece, then waste no time in getting your order in as there are only 300 available.
