Princess Diana Candid Yacht - Seen with her two children, Princess Diana stands in this candid yacht photo from 1990. It is a rare glimpse of the past as she was soaking up the sun and enjoying some time with William and Harry. It’s a reminder of how special the Princess was to the world.
The rare Princess Diana photo was posted by Valentino’s partner, Giancarlo Giammetti, when he was inboard the same yacht. It was captioned: “Summer is here TBT princess Diana on the TMblue 1990.” It is one of the rare images that has never been released to the public until now.
“She was so down-to-earth and just plain classy,” The Inquisitr reports. “Everyone really loved Princess Di, and the love that they have been showing this old picture shows that. Diana loved to have fun with her children,” the site said about Diana. “She was a very hands-on mom, but she was relaxed and always so chill.”
In the rare yacht photo, she looks as impossibly stylish as she always did; sporting a printed bikini, an over-sized purple shirt tied effortlessly in a knot above her stomach, and a pair of black sunglasses.
The photo of Diana was taken on board the Valentino-owned T.M.Blue One yacht, and also depicts pals Rosario Saxe-Coburg, wife to the Prince of Preslav, Bulgaria, and a young boy presumed to be Prince William as a child.
Princess Diana was known to frequent the luxury yachts of her rich and famous friends, partly because they offered her relative freedom from the prying eyes of the paparazzi, who hounded her relentlessly for most of her adult life. Giametti was with Diana seven years later, on August 31 1997 - mere hours before the car crash that ended her life - as she languished on her boyfriend Dodi Al Fayed’s Jonikal yacht, which was anchored next to the T.M.Blue One.
“She knew the paparazzi were there, but she didn’t care,” he later told Harpers Baazar, recalling that he invited Diana for lunch that fateful day.
Princess Diana is remembered as one of history’s most iconic royals. Mother to princes William, now 32, and Harry 29; she was revered for her compassion, style and charisma, and was the long-suffering target of intense media scrutiny. Diana first entered the spotlight after marrying Prince Charles in 1981, but the couple were rocked when, in 1992, Charles was exposed as having an affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles - now his wife. Do you think Diana would be married today?
