When Diana Met…
Dec 15, 2021

Of all the iconic Princess Diana photos, perhaps the most memorable captures her twirling on the dance floor with John Travolta back in 1985. That night, Diana and Charles were the guests of honor at a White House dinner and with just one dance, the Princess cemented her celebrity status in the United States. In this episode, Aminatou Sow recaptures the drama and excitement around the fairytale moment with CNN royal correspondent Max Foster, and talks to New Yorker culture critic Naomi Fry about the celebrity machine and the perils of fame.
