Princess Diana was reportedly not afraid to break the rules because she knew she could get away with anything.

It has been over two decades since Princess Diana died in a tragic car accident, but she remains in the people's hearts. Although the late Princess of Wales was known in her charity works, she had a naughty side, too.

In Amazon Prime's documentary titled "Serving the Royals: Inside the Firm," one episode revealed that the People's Princess was a risk-taker who was not afraid to break the rules. "Diana sometimes took risks with the attitude that staff could sort things out and that she could get away with anything," the narrator said (as quoted by Express).

According to Ken Wharfe, her former bodyguard, there was a time when she drove 90mph and was stopped by a police officer.

"Diana once said to me, would you take a bullet for me?" Wharfe recalled. "I said, well now, of course, I would but I'd prefer not to."

Wharfe admitted that he was shocked by Princess Diana's overspeeding. In fact, he warned her.

"I noticed that Diana's speed was reaching 90mph, which is 20 miles over the legal limit, and I said 'watch your speed,'" Wharfe continued.

"Well, you’ll take care if anything happens," Princess Diana responded.

"No, actually you'll have to take care of it," Wharfe replied. "Almost immediately I got a signal from my backup driver saying we think there’s an unmarked police car approaching."

According to Wharfe, the police officer stood aside after realizing that it was Princess Diana behind the wheel. But he still gave the royal a warning and insisted that it was a police matter.

"He gave her this lecture," Wharfe added. "He essentially said, look, you know, I'm giving you an official caution on this occasion."

In related news, Princess Diana was reportedly jealous of Prince William's nanny. She wanted to be a hands-on mom but was convinced that she get a babysitter for her son. However, she was devastated when she realized that the Duke of Cambridge adored his nanny more than his mother. So, Princess Diana, dismissed the nanny when the second-in-line to the throne was barely 4 years old.

Princess Diana left her sons with inheritance as she received an impressive divorce settlement from Prince Charles. However, according to Reader's Digest, most of the sweet perks was only good as long as she remained single. Had Princess Diana got married again, she would lose the benefits from the divorce settlement, including the financing she received monthly and her Kensington Palace home.
