The royal family loves Christmas time, and every year, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip celebrate it in Sandringham House. They invite all of their family to enjoy the Christmas dinner and exchange gifts. Since they already have everything their hearts desire, they come up with something funny to give each other. Before Harry got married to Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton gave him a ‘Grow-your-own-girlfriend” kit.
Princess Diana enjoyed Christmas, and she made sure that her two sons, William and Harry enjoyed it too. She gave it her all when it was time to pick up a present for her family, but unfortunately, there was one present Prince Charles didn’t enjoy.
What did Prince Charles hate?
Diana loved to dance. In the documentary, Diana: The Woman Inside she shared, “I actually wanted to be a dancer, but I overshot the height by a long way.” Princess Diana was 5’10″. She added, “I couldn’t imagine some man trying to lift me up over his arms, but I do [dance] once a week if I can.” In 1985, Princess Diana came up with a 3- minute routine to Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl” with the help of English dancer Wayne Sleep. She wanted to perform it during a Christmas gala at Covent Garden. Prince Charles and Princess Diana were members of the audience, and Diana secretly left to prepare for her performance. She shocked the audience, and everyone enjoyed her dance routine.
Well, maybe not everyone. “Charles wasn’t terribly impressed, because he thought she was showing off. But in fact, it was incredibly courageous of her to go onstage,” stated Daily Mail.
Her gift to Prince Harry
Former butler Paul Burrell told Express U.K., “She’d spend hours looking for jokey things for their stockings. One year, Harry got fake dog poo.”
