Diana was an accomplished dancer and once dreamed of being a ballerina. She was considered too tall at 5’11” for the elite profession. That didn’t stop her from reaching out to Wayne Sleep and asking if he’d help her surprise supporters of the ballet (including Charles) with a performance. Wayne struggled a bit to choreograph for her, since he was just over five feet and she was nearly six. The performance was kept secret, but the Royal Ballet did take some photos. The performance (which was to the song Uptown Girl) happened in 1985. The photos didn’t leak until 1995.
