BOSTON — The baggy Virgin Atlantic sweatshirt Princess Diana wore to discourage media interest in her exercise routine is for sale.

Boston-based RR Auction says the dark blue cotton-polyester sweatshirt that was gift from business magnate and airline founder Richard Branson is expected to get more than $5,000 during the ongoing online auction.

The garment, which features the airline's 'flying lady' logo with the words "Fly Atlantic" in white, is being sold by Jenni Rivett, Diana's longtime personal trainer. Diana gave Rivett several sweatshirts months before her August 1997 death.

In a letter that comes with the jersey, Rivett writes that Diana thought there were more pressing issues in the world to worry about, so wearing the same thing to every session would be "a good way to stop the media frenzy."
