It seems even the late Princess Diana wanted to have what Sally Albright was having in When Harry Met Sally.
It’s the 30th anniversary of the classic romantic comedy, starring Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan.
And in an interview with People, director Rob Reiner and Billy recalled the excruciating moment when they watched the movie’s now infamous fake orgasm scene with the Princess during the 1989 royal premiere in London‘s Odeon Leicester Square Theater.

You remember: Meg Ryan as Sally showed Billy’s Harry just how easy it is to fake sexual pleasure in the romantic comedy
‘All I’m thinking the entire time is, ‘How is she responding to this?,’ ‘ Rob explained to People in an interview published on Thursday.
‘And now the orgasm scene is coming, I’m going ‘Oh God. Oh my God.’ ‘
Princess Diana sat between Billy and Meg. 57, and the actor, now 71, revealed that the two of them joked with each other during the scene.
The royal beauty told Billy he was ‘so naughty.’

‘The lights went down and she whispered to me, ‘I’m taking my shoes off.’
‘So I went, ‘I’m taking my pants off,’ ‘ the star said. ‘And she goes, ‘Oh, you’re so naughty!’ ‘
Billy also remembered the Princess Of Wales’ ‘terrible laugh.’
Looking back: It’s the romcom’s 30th anniversary and director Rob Reiner, seen at premiere of The Biggest Little Farm, remembered thinking ‘Oh my God’ as the scene began to play
‘I said to Rob later, ‘If this was a date, I’d never see her again! Just because she laughs like Eh heh eh heh.’ ‘
But the Princess, who died in a car crash in a Paris road tunnel on August 31, 1997, evidently enjoyed the movie.
‘She asked for the film at Buckingham Palace so she could watch it with her friends,’ Rob added.
