Naomi Campbell spoke of her friendship with Princess Diana, describing the late royal as humble and down to earth.
In a new series on her YouTube page, Naomi was joined by fellow supermodel Cindy Crawford from the 90s, where the couple discussed making a teenage Prince Prince blush.
Born in London, Naomi, 49, chatting by videoconference with Cindy, 54, at her Los Angeles home, remembered how she spent the afternoon with Princess Diana in 1995 when William, then 13 , was coming home from school.
“I went with Claudia [Schiffer] and Christy [Turlington]and he was coming home from school, “she said.
“And we got there before he got home from school and Princess Diana was like, ‘Okay.’ So we were just like, “What are we doing? I mean, it was so sweet.
Cindy added that she then visited the king a few years later when he was 16 years old.
“Did he blush when you met him? Naomi asked.
“I don’t remember, but look, I was blushing,” replied Cindy.
“I was so intimidated to meet Princess Diana and be at Kensington Palace and how completely down to earth she was because there is so much protocol I guess, and not being English, I don’t understand some of them. “

William has already revealed how he became “bright red” when his mother organized a surprise visit to the models.
Speaking in 2017 for an ITV documentary to mark the 20th anniversary of the death of the Princess of Wales, William revealed: “When I got home from school [she organised] to have Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington and Naomi Campbell at the top of the stairs. I was probably a 12 or 13 year old boy who had posters on the wall.
“And I turned bright red and I didn’t know what to say and I sort of fumbled.

“I think I pretty much fell down the stairs on the way up. I was completely and completely amazed.
