A Different Royal in the Headlines
Photos of a college-aged Ms. Middleton may be plastered all over the Internet, but the late Princess Diana’s pre-royal life was oft kept from prying eyes. Until today, that is, as it’s been announced that an unseen image of the princess at age 18 or 19 (with the words “not to be published” scribbled across the photo) is being put up for auction by RR Auction in New Hampshire. Showing Princess Di on a bed with an unnamed boy and a bottle of Johnnie Walker on a nearby window ledge, the photo is described as a “salacious teenage image of the future princess,” which is really a bit of a stretch. But we do think it’s an alluring peek into vintage Britannia.
