Intimate Items Like a Birthday Card Given to Dalton From Princess Diana Depicting Margaret Thatcher in Her 'Underpants' Conveys the Close Relationship the Two Shared


BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Feb. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- A collection of intimate items and gifts given to Richard Dalton from Princess Diana, will be among over 500 items being auctioned by Joseph Maddalena and his internationally-renowned company, Profiles In History, the premier company in the world for live and simultaneous internet memorabilia auctions, on Friday, March 31, 2006.

Dalton was Princess Diana's personal hair stylist during the eighties and early nineties. He styled the Princess's famous short coif that ended up steeling the limelight from the Queen following the state opening of Parliament in 1984. Dalton was part of an exclusive group of staff that traveled with Prince Charles and Princess Diana on their Royal Tours abroad. Upon completion of each tour, Prince Charles and Princess Diana would present their staff with a commemorative keepsake. Dalton's keepsakes, in their original presentation box, represent a majority of the items from his collection auctioned.

Having spent considerable time together, the two shared a special bond that is evidenced in the Princess' private correspondence to Dalton. For instance, for his birthday, Princess Diana gave Dalton a signed card that read, "I see Paris, I see France -- I see Maggie in her underpants," (with an inside picture of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in her underpants). This card, in addition to Princess Diana's handwritten hair styling appointment schedules are also being auctioned.

"Profiles In History is pleased to be offering these rare and personal artifacts from one of the most beloved people of the 20th century," says Maddalena. "It is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of the legacy of Diana."
