Warren Buffett, who has a net worth of over US$85 billion, often takes part in interviews where he talks money related matters, but every once in a while, he drastically changes the topic.
In a past interview, the business tycoon surprised many by dropping a cheeky bombshell about the late Princess Diana.
The investor said that he met Princess Diana a handful of times and was always star-struck and speechless in front of her renowned beauty and intellect.
The business tycoon revealed the last conversation he had with Princess Diana before her passing in 1997.
The philanthropist and billionaire said that he stumbled on Princess Diana at a party, and they stepped into a library where they spoke about politics.
In the resurfaced interview with CNBC, Buffett opened up about the meeting with Princess Diana, where he struggled to string a sentence together.
He stated: “I was in a room alone one time with Princess Di at a party. Somehow we find ourselves in this library. In 15 minutes, I don’t think I could take it. I had trouble remembering my name, I couldn’t figure out anything to say, and it was a total disaster.”
Buffett said hours before attending the party, Prince William and Prince Harry‘s mother was at the White House for a charitable event.
The royal met with both former President Bill Clinton and then-first lady Hillary Clinton.
She told him something completely unexpected during the private chit-chat. The businessman shared: “She had been to the White House that day, and she had said that Bill Clinton was the sexiest man alive. And I didn’t ask her who the least sexy guy in the world alive was. I was afraid I might get my play in there.”
He concluded by: “But Barry and Teddy, they tried to keep their faces steady as she made that proclamation. But that’s the last thing I heard from her before she died.”
In 1996, Princess Diana attended a fundraiser with Bill and Hillary Clinton and other high-profile politicians and celebrities that benefited breast cancer research.
Bill Clinton released the following statement upon learning the devasting news of Princess Diana’s death: “Hillary and I knew Princess Diana, and we were very fond of her. We are profoundly saddened by this tragic event. Our thoughts and prayers tonight are with her family, friends, and especially her children.”
The former first lady of the United States attended Princess Diana’s funeral.
