Mitchell & Ness Reissues Eagles Jacket Worn by Princess Diana

Mitchell & Ness
Philadelphia Eagles

Back by popular demand, Mitchell & Ness has reissued the Philadelphia Eagles letterman that Princess Diana famously wore in the ‘80s and ‘90s.


“Diana loved to be different,” noted the royal’s former bodyguard, Ken Wharfe, “this was her style.” According to reports, Diana’s ties to the City of Brotherly Love stem back to 1982, when she attended the funeral of Grace Kelly, the Princess of Monaco, who was born in Philly. Jack Edelstein, a statistician for the Eagles at the time remembers having a conversation with Diana that night, noting her eagerness to learn about the team, who donned her “favorite colors.” Soon after, she received a care package with the now famed jacket she’d wear to pick up a young Wiliam and Harry from school.


“It sort of showed the public and her children that she was a normal mother in a style that people liked,” Wharfe added. Royalty Returns tomorrow as the jacket will be available to purchase for $400 USD at the Eagles Team Store, as well as M&N’s flagship in Philly.
