Princess Diana's Dance Partner Details her Wicked Sense of humour As he Reflects on Fond Memories

Princess Diana surprised the audience with a surprise performance at London's Royal Opera House back in December 1985 - something that went down in history and was recently reimagined in The Crown.

That exact moment has only been captured by photographs and no film. The annual show, Friends of Covent Garden, tends to feature a special appearance from a celebrity guest. In this case, it was Diana - unbeknownst to Prince Charles.

The room fell silent when she walked across the stage with famed British dancer Wayne Sleep, who performed for some years with the Royal Ballet.

Diana and the ballet star got to know each other after she contacted him to coach her for the surprise performance. They forged a close bond over their shared sense of humour and a love of dance he says would still be a part of her life.

"Oh yes, definitely," Wayne exclusively tells HELLO!. "She'd probably be teaching me how to keep my shoulders down and would be looking on Google to see what I was up to and if I was being naughty."
