Princess Diana wanted to make her eldest son Prince William’s 13th birthday one to remember, and if this cake didn’t do the job the special guests she arranged definitely did, When Princess Diana lived at Kensington Palace with her sons, the place was filled with dedicated chefs ready to whip up whatever the Royals fancied.
The talented teams knew how to make all of their favourite dishes as well as other treats and snacks, but when it came to a birthday cake for Prince William’s 13th birthday, Diana decided to get someone else to make the cake. This was possibly because she was planning something slightly ruder than a beautifully decorated Victoria Sponge…
In fact, Diana got her oldest son a very, very cheeky birthday cake for his special day, and it made him blush and resulted in a very jealous Prince Harry. The family’s former head chef Darren McGrady told Hello! magazine: “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.
“The Princess had ordered a boobs cake for William’s 13th birthday. “William just went bright-red.” But Harry absolutely loved it and told Diana he wanted one too.Darren says this kind of behaviour was pretty normal for Diana, who was known for her cheeky sense of humour.
He said: “The Princess loved embarrassing people in the nicest way, in a fun way, whether it was telling a dirty, risqué joke – which usually got me.” Diana used to love embarrassing her boys, and another time she decided to invite supermodels Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington over to their house one evening.
Recalling the incident in a documentary, he said: “I was probably a 12 or 13-year-old boy who had posters of them on his wall. And I went bright red and didn’t know what to say and sort of fumbled and I think I pretty much fell down the stairs on the way up.
“I was completely and utterly sort of awestruck. But that was a very funny memory.” He said it showed she was loving but was also a joker who liked to tease him. Harry added: “That sort of childish, fun element really came out when she was spending time with us.
“Our mother was a total kid through and through… All I can hear is her laugh in my head. That sort of crazy laugh of where there was just pure happiness shown on her face. “One of her mottos to me was, ‘You can be as naughty as you want, just don’t get caught.’”
