Princess Diana’s cheeky side revealed in humorous sexual greeting cards she sent to the King of Greece – set to fetch up to £5,000 at auction
- The cards are on sale at Dominic Winter Auctioneers
- Buyers are expected to pay between £3,000 and £5,000
Princess Diana’s humorous side was revealed when two cheeky adult cards she sent to the King of Greece were put up for sale.
Both feature sexually suggestive cartoons printed on the front with messages written by the princess inside.
Cards are sold at Auctioneers Dominic Winter auction house and are expected to sell for up to £5,000.
One has a cartoon of a naked man leaning on a tree with the message inside reading ‘Adam came first…’ followed by ‘…Men always do!’
The second shows a nude woman on the front with the caption, ‘What is the definition of the perfect man?’ followed by the response: ‘A dwarf with a 10” tongue who can breathe through his ears!’

The second card contains an additional message written by Diana which reads: “I couldn’t decide which card to send and thought you might like both!”
The recipient of the risky cards was Constantine II – the last king of Greece.
Constantine II was a first cousin once removed of the late Prince Philip, with both men having died of King George I of Greece.
Prince Phillip and Princess Diana were godparents Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark (born 1986), the youngest son of Constantine II and Anne-Marie of Denmark.
Both cards include messages from Diana in black ink that read: “Dear Tino, dearest love as always, from Diana” and “Dear Tino, much love from Diana.”

The card list reads as follows: “The reason for sending these cards, other than for fun, is unclear as the cards do not celebrate a birthday, Christmas or baptism.
“Diana must have seen these cards and thought of Tino before buying and sending them, perhaps inspired by a conversation they had at a social gathering.”
The cards are being sold among a number of other pieces of royal memorabilia at the auction house.
Other pieces on sale include a remarkable undocumented autograph manuscript of the revival of Queen Victoria and King Juan Carlos I of Spain.
The cards are expected to sell for between £3,000 and £5,000.
