Super Bowl champs the Philadelphia Eagles have the ultimate royal seal of approval!
The two struck up a conversation during the funeral reception, talking about everything from the late Princess Grace (who was a family friend of Edelstein’s and a Philadelphia native), the U.S. and the Eagles.
Edelstein then promised to send Diana some merchandise, custom-made just for her.
She even appeared on the cover of PEOPLE in 1994 in the jacket.
As for whether she was tuning into games each season — that’s unlikely.
“She wears these things because they create a look,” Andrew Morton, the British royal biographer who covered Princess Diana for 15 years and wrote the explosive 1992 biography, Diana: Her True Story, told Daily News writer Barbara Beck in 1991. “She knows very little about English sports, let alone American teams.”
Still, photos of Diana in her go-to jacket proudly hang in bars across Philadelphia.
