Cindy Crawford ‘vividly’ remembers visiting teenage Prince William after he ‘discovered’ supermodels 

Cindy Crawford reminisced about meeting Prince William after she was name-dropped on “The Crown.”

“I still vividly remember visiting Kensington Palace to meet [Princess] Diana and a teenage William (who had just discovered the ‘Super Models,’)” Crawford, 57, wrote via Instagram Tuesday along with a clip of her “little cameo” from Season 6 of the Netflix series.

In the scene, Prince Philip visited William, portrayed by Jonathan Pryce and Ed McVey, respectively, at the high school student’s dorm.

Queen Elizabeth II’s husband took a look at the posters of women on the teenager’s wall.

“Nothing to be ashamed of,” Philip noted before asking, “Do they have names?”

After the then-teen named “Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell,” Philip said, “In my day it was Rita Hayworth, Betty Grable and Lana Turner.”

When he asked whether those monikers “mean[t] anything to” his grandson, William said “no” and shook his head.

“Of course not,” Philip replied with a chuckle.

While Campbell has yet to address her mention on the popular show, Schiffer re-posted the scene on her Story with multiple heart emojis.

William met both Crawford and Campbell, as well as Christy Turlington, when he was “12 or 13” and previously told “Diana, Our Mother” viewers that he was “sort of awestruck” by their presence.

“I went bright red and didn’t quite know what to say and sort of fumbled,” the Prince of Wales confessed in the 2017 documentary. “I think I pretty much fell down the stairs on the way up.

“But that was a very funny memory that’s lived with me forever,” he continued, praising his mom’s love of “embarrassing” him and “being … the joker.”

Crawford has previously reflected on the meeting with Diana and her sons, sharing a throwback photo from the royal visit in August 2017.

“Remembering this inspiring woman today,” Crawford captioned the throwback Kensington Palace snap at the time.

“Princess Diana had somehow got the number to my office and called herself to ask for me,” she recalled. “My assistant was in shock! We finally connected and she asked if the next time I was in London I would come by for tea.”

Crawford went on to write that she believed William, now 41, was “just starting to notice models and she thought it would be a cute surprise for him and Prince Harry.”

Although the runway star was “nervous and didn’t now what to wear,” chatting with Diana felt “like talking to a girlfriend.”

Crawford called the Princess of Wales, who died in 1997 at age 36, a “class act [who] showed us all what a modern day princess should be.”

Diana’s tragic death played out on this season of “The Crown,” which depicts the history of the royal family during Elizabeth’s 73-year reign.

In subsequent scenes, William and Harry’s mother, played by Elizabeth Debicki, was depicted as a ghost.

“Due to the sensitive nature of content in upcoming episodes of ‘The Crown,’ Prince Harry has understandably decided not to view this season,” a source told us last month, adding that the same went for his estranged sibling.

However, the insider insisted that the 39-year-old holds “no ill feelings towards the show’s creators or Netflix.”

This is the final season of the series, which premiered in 2016.
