|Best Of Friends...The
Princess And The Punk
The Princess and the punk rocker
got on famously yesterday - chatting about all
the things they don't have in common.
The Princess Of Wales,
wearing cream, and singer Toyah Willcox, all in
black, sat next to each other at the annual Women
Of The Year Luncheon.
They talked about
children - Toyah doesn't want any and Diana loves
hers more than anything, fashion - Toyah
patronises English Eccentrics and the Princess
doesn't, and keep fit - Toyah does weight
training, unlike Diana.
Afterwards the 28 year
old singer said: 'We had a wonderful time. I
probably did more talking than I should have but
the Princess was absolutely incredible, very
chatty and nice.'
Toyah, whose big studded
belt was the only reminder of her punk style,
said she had been very nervous but the Princess
'I wasn't expecting the
person I met. She's a very good person. I know
that is how she is portrayed in newspapers, but I
genuinely think it is real.
'She is full of life,
very kind and looked fabulous. But I don't think
she is one of my fans. My music is too chaotic
The 500 guests, who
included Neil Kinnock's wife Glenyis, the
Beverley Sisters and Virginia Wade, were
marshalled into the event at London's Savoy Hotel
