In a candid new interview, Princess Diana's close friend Julia Samuel revealed the late royal would have been a "fantastic grandmother" to Prince George, 2, and Princess Charlotte, 5 months, if she were alive today.
"She would have been a fantastic grandmother. It breaks my heart even thinking about it, because she would have been amazing, she really would," Julia, 56, told The Mail on Sunday's You magazine.

Julia — who is a godmother to Prince William and Kate Middleton's son, Prince George — added she hopes to be as wonderful of a godparent as Diana was to her son, Benjamin, 26, before she tragically died in a car accident at age 36 in 1997.

"[She was] the most brilliant godmother — warm and loving and fun; the sort who gave the presents parents never wanted to give because they were so huge and noisy and nightmarish, but that the children loved. I am aiming to be as good a godmother as she was," she said.

As for Julia's fondest memories of her late friend? "[Diana] loved it when she could do the ordinary stuff like washing up or emptying the dishwasher. She was brilliant at moving between these two worlds — and whether she was meeting President Reagan or having support in my kitchen, she was always herself," she told the magazine.
