In a resurfaced 2012 interview with CNBC, Warren Buffett recalled meeting Princess Diana — and finding himself at a loss for words. Apparently, he was in a room alone one time with Princess Di at a party.
Somehow they find themselves in a library. In 15 minutes, he thought couldn't take it anymore. He was having trouble remembering his own name, he couldn't figure out anything to say, and it was a total disaster.
Warren Buffett had met Diana, Princess of Wales, once other time, at a party hosted by former Washington Post publisher Katherine Graham very shortly before the royal's 1997 death, when she told him something completely unexpected.
She had been to the White House that day and she had said that Bill Clinton was the sexiest man alive, he said before quipping, but he didn't ask her who the least sexy guy in the world alive was. He was afraid he might get his play in there.
