Elizabeth Emanuel shared her memories of working with Diana to mark the 20th anniversary of her tragic death.
Speaking on Saturday Night with Miriam on RTÉ One, Elizabeth told how after all of the years that have now passed, she still remembers the moment she was told about Diana’s death.
Elizabeth explained: “It’s 20 years really and I remember the minute that I heard it and I expect so many other people remember that as well.
“It was so horrific. She was such an amazing person. I mean she genuinely was.
“She was fun and she laughed a lot and it was such a joy to be able to, you know, work with her on her gown.”
The 64-year-old fashion designer is best known for her 1981 wedding work for the Princess of Wales along with her former husband David Emanuel.
She continued to Miriam O’Callaghan: “It was a wonderful, wonderful time. I’ll never forget those days.”
The interview on Irish television comes after a series of new Diana documentaries aired in the UK.
Prince William and Harry spoke for the first time about the passing of their late mother as they looked through old photographs for an ITV programme.
However, Channel 4 controversially stirred the Royal pot by airing secret Diana tapes where she spoke candidly about her life with voice coach Peter Settelen.
The broadcaster then went further with another documentary entitled Princess Diana’s ‘Wicked’ Stepmother.
Saturday Night with Miriam airs weekly on RTÉ One.
