Princess Diana always wanted to be a ballerina -- but she grew too tall.

Diana talked about her childhood dream while visiting a ballet school near London Wednesday. Francesco Dallaglio, 13, relayed the conversation: 'The princess was saying she wanted to be a dancer but when she reached 5 foot 5 inches she thought she was going to be too tall.' School official Stella Skitch agreed that at 5 foot 9, Diana was too tall for classical ballet but 'perhaps she could have become a modern dancer.'
