Anyone can be starstruck while standing near their favorite celebrity. Even Princess Diana had her fair share of starstruck moments! One of her photographers has recently shared a nostalgic snap from a memorable event night and revealed who made the princess blush.
The Memorable Event
The event was arranged in Washington DC when Princess Diana and Prince Charles visited in 1985. The night came with many memorable moments, and the world has seen a carousel of images of the princess dancing her night away with several Hollywood hunks. The photos of Diana being twirled around by none other than John Travolta, are particularly unforgettable! However, the photographer of the princess, Pete Souza, who took the pic that night, claimed that it wasn’t the hunky actor who turned Diana’s cheeks pink. Also, the others from the handsome league, like Clint Eastwood, or Tom Selleck, didn’t make that mark, even though Princess Diana mingled with all of them that night.
The Mystery Man
As Pete Souza recalled, it was Neil Diamond who had a noticeable impact on Princess Diana on that special night. Souza recently shared a snap from that night on his Instagram page, where the princess is seen dancing with Diamond while sporting a visibly rosy cheek. While pink cheeks were only natural with the glowing beauty of Diana, the extra blush shade was quite obvious in the photo! As Souza recalled, Neil Diamond sang with the band at the event. He distinctly remembered the crooner singing You Don’t Bring Me Flowers, and continued his performance as Diana danced with him. That was enough for the princess to get visibly flustered. The Diana-Diamond moment was one of the most notable from that star-studded night. And to be fair, we can’t blame Princess Diana! Who wouldn’t visibly blush if being serenaded by a Grammy-winning superstar singer like Neil Diamond?
