When asked to describe Princess Diana, fans have many positive words to choose from.
Whether it's mother and wife to style icon and philanthropist, the royal family member earned admirers for countless reasons.
In a new Instagram post, Cindy Crawford shared a throwback to when she met Princess Diana at Kensington Palace. Her thoughtful words may just provide further insight into the "People's Princess."
"Remembering this inspiring woman today. This photo was taken at Kensington Palace. Princess Diana had somehow got the number to my office and called herself to ask for me," Cindy recalled in her post. "My assistant was in shock! We finally connected and she asked if the next time I was in London I would come by for tea — I think Prince William was just starting to notice models and she thought it would be a cute surprise for him and Prince Harry."
She continued, "I was nervous and didn't know what to wear, but remember as soon as she came into the room and we started talking, it was like talking to a girlfriend."
Cindy also shared with her followers that Princess Diana "was a class act and showed us all what a modern day princess should be."
The royals received a tour by the current head gardener Sean Harkin, who designed the display, as well as by Graham Dillamore, who knew Princess Diana during the years he worked as a gardener at Kensington Palace.
The princes also took a moment to look at the numerous flowers, pictures and memorabilia people left outside of Kensington Palace in honor of Princess Diana.
