Piers Morgan, 56, took to Twitter to share a throwback picture of himself alongside Princess Diana at a function. A statue of the late royal will be unveiled today at Kensington Palace. The presenter was pictured standing alongside Diana, who appeared in high spirits.
In view of his 7.9 million followers, he wrote: “Princess Diana would have been 60 today.
“She was a charismatic, smart, beautiful, contrary, sensitive, funny, unforgiving & mischievous lady with a massive generous heart.
“Biggest star in the world but I think all her demons were driven by one thing: she just wanted to be loved.”
The former Princess Of Wales’ family members and fans are currently gathering at Kensington Palace’s Sunken Garden ahead of the statue unveiling.
Her sons Prince William and Harry will attend the event, their first together since Prince Philip’s funeral in April.
The statue was commissioned by the brothers in 2017.
At the time, they said they hoped it would “reflect on her life and her legacy”.
The late Princess, who was married to Prince Charles, died from injuries sustained in a car crash in 1997.
In his latest Daily Mail column, Piers recalled a time he spent with Diana.
While out for lunch, the journalist said he quizzed her about her famous Panorama interview with Martin Bashir in 1995.
At the time, Diana made a series of revelations about her time in the Royal Family, which made headlines around the world.
Piers said he questioned the mother-of-two about whether she regretted the interview.

He quoted her as saying: “‘I have no regrets. I wanted to do it, to put my side over.
“’There has been so much rubbish said and written that it was time people knew the truth’.”
However, he claimed she said she didn’t want to do such an interview again.
“’Once is enough. I have done what I set out to do’,” Diana added, according to Piers.
Back in May, Lord Dyson released a 127-page report regarding how Martin obtained the interview.
The inquiry concluded that the journalist acted in a “deceitful” way to secure the scoop.
The BBC has written apologies to Diana’s sons Prince William and Harry as well as Prince Charles and Diana’s brother Earl Spencer.
Bashir has also apologised for his actions, but denied that the interview had any effect on Diana.
