PEOPLE’S princess Lady Diana has been revealed as a fan of McCain oven chips and frozen burgers in a new documentary.
The late princess’ shopping secrets were broadcast in a Channel 5 look into the royals’ favourite stores.
The documentary By Royal Appointment: Shops serving the Queen (no need for quote marks) lifts the lid on which stores have had the royal stamp of approval from senior members of the monarchy.
Princess Diana’s protection officer Ken Wharfe said Will and Harry’s mum enjoyed trips to her local Marks and Sparks – despite having private chefs.
He told the documentary: “Shopping with Diana was a unique experience.
“Occasionally she would say ‘I need to go down to Marks and Spencer’”.

The Royal would nip to the M&S foodhall in Kensington High Street, it has been reported.
The protection officer offered an insight into the Diana’s shopping list, which included a fancy for frozen burgers and oven chips.
According to The Sun, he said: “It was bizarre to see the princess walking down the aisles picking up from the freezer, a bag of McCain chips, or burgers off the shelf.
“It was the thing about Diana, being in touch with normality and reality”.
A jumbo bag McCain oven chips costs £2.90 today – about £1.50 in the 1990s.
Yesterday bookies slashed the odds on Meghan giving birth to what will be Diana’s fourth grandchild today.
It comes as wild claims James Hewitt is Prince Harry’s real dad could finally be “genetically” proved wrong by the royal baby.
