Diana’s work­out sweat­shirt for sale at auc­tion

The Standard Journal - - ENTERTAINM­ENT -

The baggy Virgin At­lantic sweat­shirt Princess Diana wore to dis­cour­age me­dia in­ter­est in her ex­er­cise routine is for sale.

Bos­ton-based RR Auc­tion says the dark blue cot­ton­polyester sweat­shirt that was a gift from air­line founder Richard Bran­son is ex­pected to get more than $5,000 dur­ing the on­line auc­tion.

The gar­ment fea­tures the air­line’s “fly­ing lady” logo with the words “Fly At­lantic” in white.

It is be­ing sold by Jenni Rivett, Diana’s long­time per­sonal trainer. Diana gave Rivett sev­eral sweat­shirts months be­fore her Au­gust 1997 death.

In a let­ter that comes with the shirt, Rivett writes that Diana thought there were more press­ing is­sues in the world to worry about, so wear­ing the same thing to ev­ery ses­sion would be “a good way to stop the me­dia frenzy.”
