Princess Diana gave Prince Charles an unusual Christmas gift in 1985, and he really HATED it
It totally backfired...
The late Princess Diana was a woman of many talents.
She also became known for her gift-giving, because she always thought outside the box.
In fact, it has been revealed that one Christmas Diana arranged an unusual gift for Prince Charles, and it was not received well.
Princess Diana always loved classical ballet, and most forms of dance.
The documentary “Princess Diana: The Woman Inside” revealed that Princess Diana got daily lessons in Kensington.
Diana loved dance so much, she decided she would use it wisely.
One Christmas, the Princess shared a special dance performance with Prince Charles as a Christmas present.
He wasn't super happy about it...
The event took place in December 1985, at a private Christmas gala for the supporters of the Royal Ballet at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.
It was a three-minute performance to Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl", and it had been choreographed by ballet star Wayne Sleep.
“It was a present which slightly backfired,” said royal expert, Richard Kay.
”She did it as a tribute to Charles."“Charles wasn’t terribly impressed,” he added.
“He thought she was showing off.”
“In fact, it was incredibly courageous of her to go on stage at the home of English ballet at Covent Garden and to do a routine with the great Wayne Sleep."
She was some woman!
