Princess Diana Remembered on the Anniversary of Her Death

Gordon Ramsay has reflected on cooking for Princess Diana, calling it the “best meal” he ever made.

During Monday’s episode (27 September) of Gordon, Gino and Fred Go Greek, chef Gino D’Acampo asked Ramsay what his favourite meal was to date, to which he replied: “Cooking for Lady Di once.”

He called the princess “just beautiful” and compared her to his surroundings in Greece. “I mean, here’s renowned as the supermodel of the islets – Santorini – and she, by far, was one of the most gracious members of the royal family I’ve ever met,” he said.

Ramsay cooked for Diana at Chelsea restaurant Aubergine in the Nineties, where she ate pressed leek terrine as a starter and sea bass as a main.

The first full-length trailer for the Princess Diana film Spencer, starring Kristen Stewart, was released last week.

Spencer depicts the late royal during three weeks of 1991, as she was about to end her marriage to Prince Charles.

In the trailer, Diana is seen struggling to cope in the royal family as her marriage breaks down. There are also scenes portrayed featuring her children, William and Harry.

The clip also previews Stewart’s English accent and ends with her saying, “Will they kill me, do you think?”

Gordon, Gino and Fred Go Greek continues Monday 4 October at 9pm on ITV
