Princess Diana's cheeky side exposed as risqué cards she sent to King of Greece go on sale

NewsPrincess Diana's cheeky side exposed as risqué cards she sent to King of Greece go on sale

Princess Diana’s funny side has been unveiled as two cards she sent to the King of Greece are put up for auction. The late Princess of Wales sent two cards to Constantine II featuring some cheeky cartoons. Both cards are up for sale at Dominic Winter Auctioneers auction house where they are expected to sell for up to £5,000.

Both cards feature handwritten messages from Diana saying: “I couldn’t decide which to send and then thought you’d enjoy both!”

The first card had a cartoon of a naked man leaning on a tree with the caption “Adam came first…Men always do!…”

The second showed a naked woman with the message ‘What’s the definition of the Perfect Man?’ followed by the answer: ‘A midget with a 10″ tongue who can breathe through his ears!’

Both cards were signed by Diana with one reading: “Dearest Tino, lots of love from Diana”. The other said: “Dearest Tino, proudest love as always, from Diana”.

The cards are going up for auction on Wednesday May 17 at 10am.

The cards are listed on the auctioneer’s website with the following message: “The reason for sending these cards, other than as a bit of fun, is unclear as the cards do not celebrate a birthday, Christmas or christening.

“Diana must have seen these cards and thought of Tino before buying and sending them, possibly inspired by a conversation they had had at some social gathering.”

Constantine II was the last King of Greece until the abolition of the monarchy in 1973.

Both Prince Philip and Princess Diana were godparents to Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark, the youngest son of Constantine and Anne-Marie of Denmark.

The cards are estimated to sell for somewhere between £3,000 and £5,000, according to the auctioneers.

Following the abolition of the Greek Monarchy, Constantine moved to London with his family where he remained good friends with the Royal Family. Constantine himself was godfather to Prince William.

The cards are being sold alongside a host of royal memorabilia, including several other signed cards from the Royal family.

Around 313 lots are listed for sale on Wednesday entitled, ‘Photographs, Autographs & Documents, British Royal Memorabilia’.
