Princess Diana was a class act: Cindy Crawford


London: Remembering Princess Diana on her 20th death anniversary, fashion icon Cindy Crawford said that she was a cut above the rest.

The 51-year-old catwalk star took to Instagram to pay her tributes to the Princess of Wales, where she recalled her visit to the Kensington Palace years ago.

“Remembering this inspiring woman today. This photo was taken at Kensington Palace. Princess Diana had somehow got the number to my office and called herself to ask for me. My assistant was in shock! We finally connected and she asked if the next time I was in London I would come by for tea – I think Prince William was just starting to notice models and she thought it would be a cute surprise for him and Prince Harry.

“I was nervous and didn’t know what to wear, but remember as soon as she came into the room and we started talking, it was like talking to a girlfriend. She was a class act and showed us all what a modern day princess should be. Rest In Peace #PrincessDiana. #TBT (sic)” Crawford wrote alongside the picture with the princess.

Princess Diana passed away at the age of 36 on August 31, 1997.
