Princess Diana Wanted a Piece of Simon’s Le Bon Bon, Says Duran Duran Singer

Duran Duran frontman Simon Le Bon says a hungry-like-the-wolf Princess Diana once whistled at his pert, toned bum at the gym. From The Times:

“She and I used to go to the same fitness club – Chelsea Harbour in London.

“One day I was on the running machine. I jumped off because one of my shoelaces had come undone, and she wolf-whistled at me across the room, and yelled, like a brickie, ‘Nice legs! I’d recognize that bum anywhere!’

“I was quite taken aback, actually, and quietly got back on the machine with a red face.”

What a respectful story to tell just days ahead of the Diana memorial concert. I’m sure the Princes are simply brimming with pride at that one.

While not British himself—he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri—he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
