Princess Diana was a real and ordinary person who thought the media attention that surrounded her was crazy.
The 66-year-old musician became close to the British royal because she was a fan of the band in the '80s and said that she would often refer to the media storm that followed her - and led to her untimely death in 1997 - as being ''crazy''.
Roger said: ''I spoke to Diana in private at times. I used to see her at a health club we both went to in Chelsea. She thought it was crazy that people with cameras wanted to follow her around taking her photo. She was a very real, very ordinary, person going through something extraordinary. Something similar to what we had been through.''
Diana also attended a Duran Duran concert that became the target of an IRA bomb plot.
The 'Under Pressure' singer revealed that finding out about the planned attack on the show - at London's Dominion Theatre in July 1983 - was one of the ''scariest moments'' of his life.
Speaking to the Mail on Sunday Event magazine, he said: ''They wanted to kill Diana and Charles and everybody in the room.
''It was so shocking. We were only made aware of it years later, but it was very frightening.''
