Naomi Campbell has reminisced on her friendship with Princess Diana, calling the late royal ‘humble and down-to-earth’.
In a new series on her YouTube page, Naomi was joined by fellow Nineties supermodel Cindy Crawford, where the pair discussed making a teenage Prince William blush.
London-born Naomi, 49, who was chatting via videolink to Cindy, 54, in her LA home recalled how she was spending the afternoon with Princess Diana in 1995 when William, then aged 13, came home from school.
‘I went with Claudia [Schiffer] and Christy [Turlington], and he was coming home from school,’ she explained.
‘And we had gotten there before he had gotten home from school and Princess Diana was like, “Okay.” So we were just like, “What do we do?” I mean, it was so sweet.’
Cindy added that she then visited the royal a few years later, when he was 16.
‘Did he blush when you met him?’ Naomi asked.
‘I don’t remember, but look I was blushing,’ Cindy replied.
‘I was so intimidated meeting Princess Diana and being at Kensington Palace and just how completely down-to-earth she was because there’s so much protocol I guess, and not being English, I don’t understand some of it.’

Naomi added: ‘I loved Princess Diana, I just loved her. Humble, how down-to-earth and I’m just blessed to know her for the time that I did.’
William has previously revealed how he went ‘bright red’ when his mother organised a surprise visit from the supermodels.
Speaking in 2017 for an ITV documentary to mark the 20th anniversary of the Princess of Wales’ death, William revealed: ‘When I came home from school [she organised] 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.
‘And I went bright red and didn’t quite know what to say and sort of fumbled.

‘I think I pretty much fell down the stairs on the way up. I was completely and utterly sort of awestruck.
‘That’s lived with me forever about her loving and embarrassing and sort of, you know being — being the sort of the joker.’
Elsewhere in the video, Cindy and Naomi discussed the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
