To commemorate the Princess of Wales and the anniversary of her 60th birthay, her friend and make-up artist Mary Greenwell appeared on This Morning.

Today she told Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby about her first meeting with Princess Diana.

It was to shoot the royal for Vogue magazine, an image that has become iconic.

It was the cover of British Vogue for the December 1991 issue.

Mary Greenwell told This Morning viewers: “I remeber the first time I met her with Patrick Demarchelier and Sam McKnight when we did a Vogue cover in 1991, which is now incredibly famous.

“It’s in a beautiful strapless dress.”

Describing the moment she saw Diana for the first time, Mary said: “And she came into the studio, we weren’t told who was coming into the studio.”

Photographer Patrick Demarchelier was convinced they were shooting Margaret Thatcher when he was told the model was a “very important person.”

“She was full of life and joy and when she arrived,” Mary said.

“I promise you it was like just anybody had just walked in, someone really natural, and charming and delightful.

“Forget all the curtseying and whatever, she sat down in the chair and let us all do whatever we wanted to her.”

When asked by Phillip Schofield if Diana had a specific style of make she wanted, Mary replied “no”.

She said: “She was always very trusting.”

Diana liked a red lip, the expert claimed, on occasion, preferring a deep red.

The royal has become an icon of style, beauty and of humanitarianism.

Her iconic bridal gown has gone on display for the public to visit.

Princess Diana’s wedding dress has been used as part of an installation in Kensington Palace.

Matthew Storey, the curator of Royal Style in the Making, said: “Her style is being celebrated again.”

The dress is thought to be worth £31,000 in today’s money.

Diana’s youngest son, Prince Harry, has flown back to the UK to be at the unveiling of the statue of Diana today.

An expert claimed the “dazzling” Prince Harry is back.

Judi James told Express.co.uk: “He launched the familiar ‘dazzling’ version of Harry that fans have been missing, meeting winners and celebrities with the same levels of animated fun, clearly picking his moments in terms of when to create contagious smiles and when to use active listening signals to register empathy and concern.

“The cheeky smile was back in place, with his slightly jutting lower jaw and his eye-crinkling suggesting genuine delight at having fun with the younger guests.”
