In a new PBS special called In Their Own Words: Diana, Princess of Wales, John Travolta admits that the iconic dance they shared together was actually her idea. Additionally, the famous dance was able to happen with the help of former first lady Nancy Reagan.
“About 10 o’clock at night, Nancy Reagan tapped on my shoulder and said, ‘The princess, her fantasy is to dance with you. Would you dance with her tonight?'” Travolta says in the special. “And I said, ‘Well, of course. How does this work?’ And she said, ‘Well, at about midnight I’ll come and get you and then I’ll lead you over to her and then you ask her to dance.'”
