ODD NEWS: Princess Diana’s adult-themed greeting cards to Greek king sold at auction

Greeting cards featuring adult-themed jokes sent byย Princess Dianaย to Constantine II, the last king of Greece, sold for about $8,677 dollars at an auction Wednesday.

Dominic Winter Auctioneers, which sold the pair of greeting cards, saidย in a news releaseย that the reason Diana sent the cards to the former king was unclear but that they may have been inspired by a conversation they had at a social gathering.

The first of the greeting cards features artwork byย Mike Edwardsย of the biblical figure Adam in the buff leaning on a tree in the Garden of Eden. The text on the card reads, “Adam came first. Men always do!”

“What’s the definition of the Perfect Man? A midget with a 10-inch togue who can breathe through his ears!” the second card reads.

That card featured the back of a man’s head kneeling before a woman wearing just her underwear.

Both cards were from the GirlsTalk series of greeting cards that were published by Emotional Rescue around 1987. It was not immediately clear when they were given to King Constantine, known as Tino.
