LONDON -- Has Princess Diana of Wales had a nose job? Yes, says Eric Jackson, director of a London cosmetic clinic. No, say officials close to Diana, who report she was 'highly amused' Monday at the claim in The Star, a tabloid newspaper.
The newspaper invited its readers to compare two profile pictures of Diana -- one taken before the birth in 1982 of her first son, Prince William, and the second taken in October 1985.
Jackson told The Star he thought Diana 'has had a slight Concorde-like droop removed from the end of her nose and a small bump on the bridge smoothed out.'
The minor surgery was probably performed in a 40-minute procedure using general anesthesia, he said, adding it would probably require 'seven or eight stitches.'
She would have had to wear a splint over her nose for a week following the operation, Jackson said.
The Star suggests that Diana had the 'nose job' sometime soon after the birth of William, noting that she was not seen in public for about three months at that time.
The verdict on the alleged royal operation? According to Jackson, 'It has made her look even more attractive.'
