Princess Diana's personal trainer revealed the poignant observation on Yahoo UK's show The Royal Box
Princess Diana's former personal trainer speaks to Yahoo UK's show 'The Royal Box.'
It’s been 21 years since her death, yet Princess Diana arguably remains the greatest style icon of the last century. From the moment she joined the royal family, the princess challenged the status quo, wearing the likes of oversized tailoring, figure-hugging LBDs, androgynous suits, leopard print and boiler suits. She indulged in her obvious love for fashion, despite the restraints that so clearly surrounded her. And to this day, the Diana’s style is still celebrated, through countless books dissecting her influence, sell-out exhibitions in her honour, and fan-run Instagram accounts that gush over her everlasting elegance. What’s more, Lady Di’s style influence has even found itself into the mainstream trends of today. In 2018, we’re wearing cycling shorts , animal print and oversized blazers with fervour, but Diana was doing it thirty years ago.

Introducing The Royal Box, Yahoo UK's brand new show on all things royal. Presented by Kate Thornton, episode six features Diana's former bodyguard, Ken Wharfe. Charged with protecting the Princess for five years, until her separation from Prince Charles, Wharfe also oversaw William and Harry’s protection during their early years. Wharfe discusses Diana’s desperate, and ongoing, desire for normality and the royal family’s “hatred” of the press. Elsewhere, royal correspondent Richard Palmer and journalist and royal biographer Claudia Joseph discuss the palace’s handling of the latest Thomas Markle interview and what kind of Queen the Duchess of Cambridge will one day be. Plus, we look at what the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have planned for the remainder of the summer.

In 2016, a poll showed a quarter of Britons wanted heir-apparent Prince Charles to step aside when the Queen dies, allowing Prince William to be crowned King. Although that scenario is thought to be highly unlikely by royal insiders, it is true that the popularity of Charles has fluctuated in recent years, falling to a historic low in the aftermath of Princess Diana’s death in 1997. Now, a former butler to Princess Diana has claimed she said Charles wasn’t fit to be king.

With an aunt as iconic as Princess Diana , you’d be forgiven for shrinking into the sartorial background – but not Lady Kitty Spencer. The cousin of Prince William and Prince Harry has been making her own name for herself within fashion circles the last few years, but it was her appearance at the royal wedding that brought her to the world’s attention. Wearing a hand-painted green, floral Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda dress with a ornate Philip Treacy hat, the 26-year-old hit the top of many royal wedding best dressed lists. Lady Kitty has been buzzing on the social scene for a while now, often sitting front row at fashion shows and sipping champagne at the fanciest parties. Also a model, Lady Kitty has become a muse of the creatives behind D&G, first appearing in their autumn winter ’18 show as part of the DG Millennials squad – along with the likes of Lottie Moss, Pixie Lott and Rafferty Law – and posing in their spring summer 2018 campaign. Signed to Storm Management, Kitty has also been bagging campaigns with the likes of Bulgari and editorials with Vogue and Elle . What’s more is that away from the camera, Kitty has been honing an enviable personal style of her own.
