Joan Collins claimed that Princess Diana complained to her about the "most boring lunch" she had with a Spanish monarch the last time they met.

People magazine published a story about Diana's memories. The "Dynasty” star wrote that she had met Diana six times before her death in a Paris car accident on August 31, 1997.

Collins wrote that the last time Collins saw her, they were having lunch at Harry's Bar in London. "I believe she was eating with King Juan Carlos of Spain, and someone else. She walked by, winked, and then said, "One of the most boring lunches that I've ever had."

Diana had a strong relationship with the Spanish royals and took Prince Harry and Prince William along on vacation at the Marivent Palace, Majorca, in August 1987. According to Mail Online, Diana informed Ken Wharfe, her bodyguard, that she believed the king "fancied" her. Pilar Eyre, a Barcelona-based author, wrote in a book on the Spanish royals.

Collins also spoke out about her reactions to Diana's death in People, writing that she had "cried for days" upon hearing the news.

"She was natural, unaffected, and real. Collins wrote that I believe that her sons, especially Prince William, have benefited from that. Also, I think Princess Kate, the Duchess Of Cambridge, has also followed her lead. Collins wrote, "I cannot think of anyone who has been more popular." The Queen is of course extremely popular. Diana was a sensation."
