Richards asserted that the car’s “emotional link” with the public and its scarcity, however, were what truly distinguished it.

“This car was known as the ‘people’s sports car’ and the fact it was driven by the People’s Princess just nails it.”

Before her death Diana was pictured with the car outside the boutique shops of Chelsea and in Kensington. In June 2021, another Ford Escort used by Princess Diana sold at auction for £52,000.
