It comes as no surprise that Diana, Princess of Wales, was esteemed as “the people’s princess.” Despite her status, she bonded with the public and consciously related with people she met.
The late member of the British royal family has always been deemed a symbol of poise and humility, but she is also remembered by loved ones for her sense of humor that royally tickled their funny bones.
A racy but hilarious birthday card that Princess Diana had sent to her accountant, Anthony Burrage, is now going up on sale by Los Angeles-based Julien’s Auctions.
The card, shown below, depicts an illustration of a blonde woman sleeping next to a spindle, and is captioned with: “A little prick in the hand sent Sleeping Beauty to sleep.”
The joke is found behind the cover, and reads, “Only the big ones are worth staying awake for!”
Princess Diana showed her endorsement for the joke by including a handwritten note that read, “Tony, a belated Happy Birthday for the 5th! From, Diana.”
The cheeky card started with a price of US$200, and was estimated to be sold off between US$800 and US$1,200. However, interested buyers were seemingly amused by Princess Diana’s taste in humor, so the bid price has risen to US$1,750 at time of publish.
This wasn’t the only glimpse the public had of the princess’s wit. This year, her former head chef, Darren McGrady, recounted to HELLO! Online that he had come to work on Prince William’s 13th birthday, “went down to the refrigerator, opened the door and I was just confronted with the biggest pair of boobs I’ve ever seen in my life.”
“The Princess had ordered a boobs cake for William’s 13th birthday.”
