Kevin Costner Reveals Princess Diana Had a Crush on Him, According to Prince William
Jun 19 2024

Kevin Costner recently unveiled an unexpected revelation about the late Princess Diana's sentiments towards him, as disclosed by her son, Prince William.

The renowned actor had the opportunity to meet Princess Diana to discuss the potential collaboration in a sequel to his iconic 1992 film, "The Bodyguard."

Years later, Costner found himself engaged in a heartwarming conversation with Prince William during a visit to England. Recalling the encounter, Costner shared, "I happened to be over in England and got this message that the prince would love to talk to [me]."

Costner reminisced about the moment he sat down with Prince William, now 41, in a room where they were the sole occupants, surrounded by stacked chairs. "There was nobody else," Costner recounted. "We sat down and shook hands, and the first line out of his mouth was, 'You know, my mom kind of fancied you.'

Amused and incredulous, Costner jokingly pointed at himself, exclaiming, "I know."

Despite their brief half-hour conversation, Costner remains tight-lipped about the specifics, emphasizing, "I will never ever say what" they discussed. Reflecting on the encounter, he expressed, "It was a very sweet thing. We just chatted, and we both broke away, and we never became pen pals or did anything like that."

Costner further added, "But I've had such fond memories of who he was, how I was approached, and what we talked about."

Delving deeper into the backstory, Costner revealed that his connection with Diana was facilitated through Sarah Ferguson, whom he praised for her role in orchestrating the meeting. He commended the Duchess of York for her support, noting, "She could have been going, 'Well, I'm a princess too. What about me?' She didn't. She said, 'I'm going to make this happen, Kev,' and she did. I always respected her that she never inserted herself."

Costner also shared that his interactions with the royal family extended beyond Prince William, as he has also engaged with Prince Harry. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended Costner's charity event at his Santa Barbara estate, where they presented him with an honorary award.

As the Sussexes transitioned to a life outside the royal spotlight, Costner's connection with the royal family serves as a testament to the enduring impact of his work and his relationships within the royal circle.

Reflecting on this unique encounter, Costner emphasized the respect he holds for the royal family and the fond memories he cherishes from his interactions with them. This anecdote sheds light on the personal connections that transcend boundaries and highlight the human side of royalty.
