Princess Diana got a 'boob cake' for Prince William's 13th birthday
Prince William turned 36 and touched a milestone but here's looking back at the embarrassing cake Princess Diana got for him on his 13th
Prince William turned 36 on Friday (June 22) and even though the Prince spent his birthday speaking about Defense and National Rehabilitation Centre, his fans were quick to recall a certain birthday party that they were sure Prince William could not have forgotten. Prince William had experienced a very embarrassing or rather an unusual birthday 23 years ago when he was 13 and it was all thanks to his late mother, Princess Diana.
Princess Diana was known to have a fun side to her but little did people know that she would turn Prince William's 13th birthday into something that people would find very hard to forget. As it turns out, the young princess wanted her son to feel extra special and enjoy his birthday in a way he wouldn't have imagined. As reported by Daily Star, Princess’s former chef, Darren McGrady, recalled how Diana had picked out a very peculiar looking birthday cake for William.
“I came into work that morning and went down to the refrigerator, opened the door and I was just confronted with the biggest pair of boobs I’ve ever seen in my life," he recalled. “The Princess had ordered a boobs cake for William’s 13th birthday. I wish I’d taken a photograph of it! I didn’t know anything about it. I just thought, 'Oh my gosh'. While Prince William turned red looking at the cake, Prince Harry insisted that he wanted a similar birthday cake on his birthday.
While Darren was surprised to see the cake, he could not wrap his head around on who could have possibly ordered it. "I asked the butler, 'What on earth is this?' and he said the Princess had ordered it for William’s birthday," he recalled. However, this wasn't the only surprise Princess Diana had in store for her loving son. To make things more interesting, she had invited some top supermodels to the event as well.
“I remember that day really well because the Princess said they were coming," he said. "I was super excited and I wanted to meet them too but I didn’t get the chance. It was Claudia Schiffer, Christy Turlington, and Naomi Campbell.” While Prince William's 13th birthday party might have been out of the box, there was an unusual connection between Prince Diana and his 36th birthday.
Victoria Arbiter, a royal commentator took to Twitter and wrote, “I’m sure it’s not lost on William that today he turns the same age his mother was when she died. Many people who’ve lost a parent at a young age have said it’s a very odd feeling to reach that milestone.” The late princess died in 1997 and last year marked the 20th anniversary of her death.
