The day Diana gave William a supermodel treat

William tells the story of his mother’s wicked sense of humour in a documentary.

Diana, Princess of Wales once made every teenage boys’ fantasy come true for her son the Duke of Cambridge – by inviting three supermodels to their home.

William tells the story of his mother’s wicked sense of humour in a documentary that chronicles the life of one of the most famous women of the 20th century.

His brother Prince Harry also describes her in the ITV programme, which will be screened on Monday, as “a total kid through and through” whose motto was “you can be as naughty as you want, just don’t get caught”.

The duke says about his embarrassing experience with the models: “She organised when I came home from school to have Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington and Naomi Campbell waiting at the top of the stairs, I was probably a 12 or 13-year-old boy who had posters of them on his wall.

“I went bright red, and didn’t know quite what to say and sort of fumbled and I think pretty much fell down the stairs on the way up. I was completely and utterly awestruck.

“That was a very funny memory that’s lived with me forever…”
