PRINCESS DIANA’s first cousin has revealed a special “childhood crush” the late royal kept in close by during her school days.

Ms Macfarlane told the new ITV documentary: “Life in the dormitory, you all had your bed and your bedside table and then there were cupboards to hang things.

“We had our teddy bears and everyone loved to have their photograph on their bedside table.

“We all use to have pictures of various pop stars that we liked.

“The Monkey’s, Rod Stewart people like that.

“But I can tell that she used to have photographs of Prince Charles around her bed at West Heath.

“Sort of a childhood crush really. With Diana, it was always pictures of Prince Charles.”

The new 90-minute one-off special comes ahead of what would have been the Princess of Wales’s 60th birthday on July 1.

The documentary’s executive producer David Glover said: “There is something a bit magical about Princess Diana – and despite the difficulties in her personal life she managed to use her connection with people to do huge amounts of good.

“Her 60th birthday feels like the perfect time to re-examine her life and legacy and explore just how she went from a relatively unknown teenager to the most mourned person who ever lived.”

Ms Macfarlane also pays tribute to her late cousin in a rare exclusive interview.
