Princess Diana’s Performance at the Royal Opera House, 1985

The Princess of Wales gives a surprise performance to a private show for supporters and friends of the Royal Ballet, including the Prince of Wales, at the Royal Opera House in London on this day in 1985. The Princess danced with Wayne Sleep to Billy Joel’s Uptown Girl. The Performance remained a surprise until 1995, when these pictures, taken by the Royal Opera House’s photographer, appeared in the tabloids.
