Prince William was so embarrassed by treat from Princess Diana that he ‘almost fell down the stairs’


WILLIAM recalled how he was left red-faced as a teenager when Diana gathered his favourite supermodels to say hello to him.

The duke was wracked with embarrassment, because he had pictures of Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington on his wall.

Princess Diana arranged for Prince William to meet supermodels – Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington

Prince William spoke about Diana on the ITV documentary – Diana, Our Mother

Speaking on the ITV documentary Diana, Our Mother in 2017: “She organised, when I came home from school to have Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington and Naomi Campbell waiting at the top of the stairs.

“I was probably a 12 or 13-year-old boy who had posters of them on his wall.

“And I went bright red and didn’t quite know what to say and sort of fumbled. I think I pretty much fell down the stairs on the way up. I was utterly sort of awestruck.

“But that was a very funny memory that’s lived with me forever about her loving and embarrassing and being, sort of, the joker.”

Diana also smuggled her sons into cinemas and burger bars and took them on road trips in her BMW.

Harry said: “My mother cherished those moments of privacy. She decided that, no matter what, she was going to ensure we had as normal a life as possible.”

She sent the rudest cards

HARRY revealed his mischievous mum was “a total kid, through and through”.

He said: “One of her mottos to me was, ‘You can be as naughty as you want, just don’t get caught’.

“She was one of the naughtiest parents.

“She would come and watch us play football and, you know, smuggle sweets into our socks.

“And I mean like literally walking back from a football match and having sort of five packets of Starburst.

“And just the whole shirt was just bulging with sweets and then sort of looking around, open the tuck box, throw it all in, lock it up.”

William said: “She loved the rudest cards you could imagine. And I would be at school and I’d get a card from my mother.

“Usually she found something very embarrassing — a very funny card — and then wrote very nice stuff inside.

“But I dared not open it in case the teachers or anyone else in the class had seen it.”
