The iconic Royal, Princess Diana left an incredible legacy behind and truly touched people everywhere with just how raw and genuine she was. She had a lot more in common with the public than you would think, even down to her political crush! And it was not Ronald Reagan!
Princess Diana's Presidential Crush
Footage of a CNBC interview with Warren Buffett years ago has resurfaced online where he details the lucky few times he met the gorgeous Lady Di. The first time he met her Buffett described, "I was in a room alone one time with Princess Di at a party. Somehow we find ourselves in this library."
Billionaire Buffett was star struck and tongue twisted! "In 15 minutes, I don't think I could take it. I had trouble remembering my name, I couldn't figure out anything to say, and it was a total disaster."
Another time he met Princess Diana at Washington Post publisher Katherine Graham's party only a few months before Diana tragically and suddenly died in the horrific 1997 car accident. The Princess ended up telling Buffett something that surprised him.
"She had been to the White House that day and she had said that Bill Clinton was the sexiest man alive. And I didn't ask her who the least sexy guy in the world alive was. I was afraid I might get my play in there."
Diana had met with the Clinton's many times during Bill's presidency and Hillary attended Diana's funeral. The President stepped away from his duties of the day to make a statement when he learned of Diana's heartbreaking car crash.
Bill Clinton said, "Hillary and I knew Princess Diana, and we were very fond of her. We are profoundly saddened by this tragic event. Our thoughts and prayers tonight are with her family, friends, and especially her children."
After her death, Bill continued to bring awareness and public knowledge to the AIDS crisis in hopes of continuing "The People's Princess's" brave and caring efforts.
