Princess Diana's former chef, Darren McGrady, said she wanted a relationship with Tom Cruise, but something stopped her every time.
Darren McGrady, who cooked at Kensington Palace, said Princess Diana and Tom Cruise meet on the set of the Mission Impossible production.
"I remember Princess Diana took the boys to the set where Mission Impossible was filmed and to meet Tom Cruise," the former royal chef explained, according to OK Magazine.
Why Didn't Princess Diana & Tom Cruise Get Together?Darren McGrady recalled how one morning Princess Diana came into the kitchen and said, "Darren, we got an invitation to go and watch Mission Impossible at Pinewood Studios in London. I'm going to take William and Harry. Do you think they'd be interested?".
The royal chef replied to Diana: "I'm not sure about the boys, Your Royal Highness, but you will meet Tom Cruise."
Sometime later that day, McGrady woke up with Diana in the kitchen after she had attended the screening. "She came in, got some fruit, came out, and didn't say anything. But as she was leaving the kitchen, she said, "That's another one off the list, Darren. He's too short!"
Princess Diana Had A Crush On Tom Cruise?Princess Diana's passion for the actor is said to have been confirmed by Judy Wade, who revealed in her 2007 book "Diana: An Intimate Portrait" that Lady Di had a crush on Tom Cruise.
A source reportedly told Judy that Diana, who met Tom Cruise at the 1992 premiere of "Far and Away", had fantasized about the famous actor.
A source said, "Well, that explains why Nicole Kidman turned down roles with Diana every time and wasn't happy that her best friend Naomi Watts accepted. Nicole continues to hold a grudge, even though she divorced Tom, and the woman who posed a threat died. Nicole attended Lady Diana's funeral, but I think that was more Tom's wish than hers."
Princess Diana of Wales, the late Princess of Hearts was, without a doubt, a most fascinating woman.
