Princess Diana’s Dirty Sense of Humor on Display in Birthday Card She Sent to Her Accountant

Throughout her life, Princess Diana was a groundbreaking public figure who often defied Royal protocol, as well as her popularity stemmed, in part, through her ability to imbue the haughty as well as distant Windsor family using a populist humanity not genuinely seen before she married Prince Charles.

She continues to buck the conventional norms expected of a princess even currently, 21 years after her untimely death, from the form of a super dirty joke birthday card she sent her accountant, Anthony Burrows, from the mid-’90s.

The card recently resurfaced as part of a lot that will will be up for sale at Julien’s Auctions, as part of their “Icons & Idols: Hollywood” sale.

The cover of the R-rated birthday missive features a cartoon illustration of Sleeping Beauty napping in her bed, in a castle, with the joke set-up, “A little prick from the hand sent Sleeping Beauty to sleep.”

Inside the card, that will reads, “Only the big ones are worth staying awake for!”
