Rediscovered video shows great piano talent
An unknown video of Princess Diana has resurfaced: in 1988 she is asked to play the piano in Melbourne and impresses everyone present with her talent.
At first she smiles embarrassed – but then Princess Diana, †36, sits down at the piano and impresses with her abilities. Until then, hardly anyone knew how well the then wife of Prince Charles, 72, could play the piano. Only when the two traveled in Australia in 1988 and attended a school in Melbourne could the public get an idea of their musical talent.
