"Kensington Palace was the home of Princess Diana for 15 years she would stop and she would admire the changing floral displays in the garden. There was another gardener who told me a story about when he was walking along with a wheelbarrow with a fellow gardener. It's really embarrassing, but he tripped.

"Everything kind of spilled everywhere. And Princess Diana was going by and turned around and said 'Bad luck, chaps', and kind of gave a smile. And they kind of smiled and found it really quite funny, but also it's quite embarrassing when that happens."

"She was incredibly flattering and complimentary about the work that we did."
"I think she appreciated the hard work we put in, she was more worried about us out in the cold and asking are we wrapped up. She loved the colors and the brightness [of the garden]...She would ask how we came about picking the colors and getting the color scheme so we would discuss that.

"She never confessed to being a fantastic gardener, but there were certain colors she liked in the garden - soft pinks, whites, yellow, pastel shades. She used to turn her nose up if I ever put red or deep purple flowers."

Mr. Dillamore has shared such endearing memories of Princess Diana, in which he has described her as practical joker for coming to see the public garden disguised to be unknown. He said,

"I liked her sense of humor she was a very good practical joker - she would sneak up behind you and pretend to be a member of the public. Once we were struggling to start a lawn mower had broken down and we were just about to give up and she tapped me on the shoulder and said 'maybe if you speak to it nicely it will work."

Certainly, our love for the white colors has tremendously increased now, after knowing that the ultimate exotic beauty Princess Diana loved the light and soft shades of white. She will surely remain a fashion icon for us always.
