Princess Diana had invited Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer and Christy Turlington for the birthday of her son who was still only a child.
It’s a lasting memory for Prince William, but also for the three top models. During confinement, it was Naomi Campbell who had offered this anecdote to her fans during a program she had launched, entitled No Filter with Naomi, and broadcast live on YouTube. For her first episode, the fashion icon spoke with her friend Cindy Crawford. She told him that she had been asked, several decades ago, by Princess Diana to make a surprise birthday present to her son, Prince William, who was still a child at the time.
“I went to their place with Claudia [Schiffer] and christy [Turlington]. We arrived before he got home from school […] We were like, ‘What do we do?’ It was too cute“, remembered Naomi Campbell. For his part, Prince William also kept an excellent memory of this surprise. “It’s a very funny memory that lives with me forever“, had confided the Duke of Cambridge in a documentary dedicated to his mother, Diana, entitled Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy.
“I was blessed to know her”
A marked moment which contributes a little more to the legend of Lady Di, who still has admirers around the world, twenty-three years after his death in Paris. “I loved Princess Diana very much, I loved her. Humble, head on shoulders. I was blessed to know her“, has also confessed Naomi Campbell, the 49-year-old supermodel. Now, Prince William has grown up and married one of the most beautiful women in the United Kingdom in the person of Kate Middleton. He also became a father (George, Charlotte and Louis, 6, 4 and soon 2 years old).
