Mr. Bean has met Princess Diana.

Many were saddened by Princess Diana’s death. Royal fans believed that she was gone too soon. This coming Saturday would be Princess Diana’s 22nd death anniversary.

Prince William and Prince Harry’s wives didn’t have the chance to meet their mom. However, Rowan Atkinson, popularly known as Mr. Bean, already met the royal. A photo of Princess Diana and Rowan’s meeting was shared on Reddit. Royal fans were ecstatic upon seeing it.

In the snap, Princess Diana and Atkinson are smiling at each other. Atkinson appears shy than his usual disposition every time he is in character as Mr. Bean. On the other hand, Princess Diana seems amused as she points a finger to the actor.

“I can only imagine this was awkward. He was probably wanting to be serious and respectful and she probably wanted him to be Mr. Bean,” one fan wrote.

Meanwhile, another user was wondering why Princess Diana was pointing a finger at Atkinson. According to another netizen, the Princess of Wales pointed at Atkinson while saying, “Don’t you ever call me a nerd!” in reference to his West End play entitled “The Nerd.”

Many found Princess Diana’s reaction cute and hilarious.

“She looks so damned cute and playful in OP, and you do this... and i can see the entire scene in my head, and now rowan (who i admire greatly, and not for his bean) is being so goddess damned cute and playful,” a different user stated.

Atkinson is popular for his roles in different comedy movies and series in particular “Mr. Bean” and “Blackadder.” Just like the actor, Princess Diana was popular for her naughty sense of humor.

When she was still alive, she used to prank her two boys, Prince William and Prince Harry. According to Paul Burrell, Princess Diana gifted Prince Harry a fake dog poo. Meanwhile, she surprised Prince William on his 13th birthday by ordering a boobs cake.

According to Prince Harry, Princess Diana was one of the “naughtiest parents.” He also shared their mom’s surprising and hilarious motto.

“One of her mottos to me was, ‘You can be as naughty as you want, just don’t get caught,’” the Duke of Sussex said.
