Princess Diana Once Sent Her Accountant a Wonderfully Dirty Birthday Card — And It's Up for Auction

Here's more evidence that Diana never took royal life too seriously.

By Tamara Palmer

We may never know how incredible Princess Diana's sense of humor truly was, but as the years go by, anecdotes and artifacts slip out that provide evidence that she didn't take life too seriously. This week, Huffington Post spotted a cheeky card that she sent to her accountant Anthony Burrows in the mid-'90s up on the block at Julien's Icons & Idols: Hollywood auction that might hint that she wasn't exactly a prude.

On the front of the card (which is expected to fetch bids between $800-1200) is a cartoon of a woman asleep, captioned, "A little prick in the hand sent Sleeping Beauty to sleep."

Open it up and it says, "Only the big ones are worth staying awake for!"

Last summer, her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, opened up about Princess Diana's humor in the documentary Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy.

"She was really informal and really enjoyed laughter and the fun," said William in the film's preview. 

"She was one of the naughtiest parents," echoed Harry, meaning she was never too serious. "But she understood that there was life outside of palace walls," finished William.
