Princess Diana had a secret passion mentioned in the latest revealed letter she wrote on December 28, 1979. The late royal composed a “thank you” note where she addressed the people who organized a Christmas celebration that year.

Perfect mom

Princess Diana is an ideal mother. And that is not a prejudiced opinion of the royal family or any random person in the UK. According to the recent poll, choosing the most respected matriarch, conducted by the Church of England, the deceased mom took the first place, overcoming such great people as Mother Teresa, Michelle Obama, and even the Virgin Mary.

That means not only William and Harry consider Diana the best woman in the world, but a majority of Britain thinks like this as well.

Secret passion

Despite being considered the best, as every mortal person, Princess Diana had her own frames in the wardrobes. The late royal had been suffering from the eating disorder, bulimia, since 1981. However, the recently revealed hand-written letter shows she had a passion for food even earlier. On December 28, 1979, Princess Diana sent a letter of gratitude to the people organizing the Christmas celebration:

Just a quick note to say an enormous thank you for all you organized and did over Christmas.

The most interesting part of the message opens Diana’s hidden obsession with the sweetest dessert ever invented by the humanity:

As for that delicious box of chocolates, I have helped finish them off and now feel very large!

The princess sounded really satisfied with the delicious chocolate she had had that evening. What a candy girl!

Defeated illness

Unfortunately, the disturbing bulimia influenced the normal life of princess, as it was claimed by the royal chef Darren McGrady. He was cooking for the Queen for 11 years until his transfer to Kensington to prepare meals for the Charles’ family.

He told he always suspected something odd in Diana’s behavior, especially when she ordered unbelievable amounts of food. Luckily, the disease was overcome when Darren started working in the Kensington Palace. He witnessed Diana’s transformation, and that was really satisfying:

She got her life back on track. She was working out at the gym every day, looking the best she ever did.
