Princess Diana's Butler Spilled Juicy Details About Her Life
The late Princess Diana has always been a topic for conversation. Most of her life has always been an enigma that makes us what to know everything. However, her former butler Paul Burrell had the opportunity to interact with her, discover her secrets, and just get to know her apart from their relationship of boss-employee. Here we have some of those details that Burrell has decided to share about her life.
1. Eating disorder
The princess of the people went through some hardships with her marriage, which resulted in her getting bulimia, something that was disclosed in an interview. Later, Burrell established that he helped her with her illness. He prepared what she needed as evidenced by his statement in a documentary.
“And I’d help her with that. I’d get the chef to prepare a gallon of custard and I’d buy yoghurts [sic] and lots of bananas. And I’d prepare the room for her to make sure she was comfortable. Make sure there was a pile of towels… I was doing my duty. I would have done anything for Diana.”
2. Diana’s fear of being in a car accident
After her death, Burrell revealed a letter from Diana where she wrote that she feared for her life and that her husband was going to kill her in a car accident. The reason behind this was that he wanted to get rid of her to marry her son’s nanny. It was rumored that Charles was having an affair with Tiggy Legge-Bourke.
“This particular phase in my life is the most dangerous – my husband is planning ‘an accident’ in my car, brake failure, and serious head injury in order to make the path clear for him to marry Tiggy. Camilla is nothing but a decoy, so we are all being used by the man in every sense of the word.”
3. Kensington Palace’s secret funeral
Diana and Burrell buried her friend’s baby back in 1994. At that moment, Rose Monckton had given birth to a stillborn and not to make a scandal, they secretly had a ceremony for the small child. Back then, they said that there were laying a pet to rest and no one was the wiser. But, do not worry, Diana’s pal has verified this fact and has even stated that she was given a key to visit the garden.
4. No more kids after Harry
When Diana had her second son, Charles told her “his work was done”. Supposedly, they had accomplished their duties as a Royal couple by providing an heir (William) and a replacement (Harry) if anything should happen to William. Allegedly, the Prince of Wales said those words to Diana right after Harry’s birth, along with “I’m off to the theatre with Camilla.”
5. Criticism from Diana’s mother
Burrell has shared how the princess’ mother had some heavy words about her choice in men. She would call her a “whore” for having relationships with men who had Muslim faith. Something that Frances Shand Kydd found appalling since she has racist outbursts. This made Diana cut tides with her mother even though they had recently connected again.
6. She lost her Royal title
When the Prince of Wales and Princess Diana divorced, she was stripped of her title, making her a commoner again. She would not be addressed as “Her Royal Highness” anymore and she would have to curtsy to the royal family, even her own sons. Supposedly, her son William said “I will give it back to you one day when I am king” in response to her predicament.
7. Helping women on the street
Diana and Burrell would go around London streets looking for women that worked at night as prostitutes. She would give out money and clothing for them to stop their doing. She would offer 50 pounds per person with the condition that they would go home as found in a disclosed police document.
8. She wanted to marry Hasnat Khan
She pleaded with then-boyfriend Dr. Hasnat Khan to marry her. She thought he was her soulmate and there was no one else for her. However, something must not have gone right because she started dating Dodi Fayed. In addition, Burrell has stated “she was using Fayed to make Khan jealous.”
9. Diana knew Burrell’s secret
Burrell’s secret was his sexual orientation. The princess of the people knew he was gay without him saying anything because he had an uncanny woman’s intuition. He could pick out her dresses, her jewelry, and to be her best friend. He had kept this information hidden while working for the Royals. After leaving their service, he made his secret public.
10. Diana’s Ghost
Burrell has made it known that Diana’s ghost visits him in dreamland. He goes on to say he hoped that she had appeared to give her blessing on his marriage to Graham Cooper. However, she wants him to tell everyone that she is really well and alive. He just replies that we are not ready for this information.
11. Diana had another accident
According to Burrell, Diana was in a previous accident to the one in Paris that took her life. In a conversation with medium John Edwards, he claimed that the first incident foretold the second catastrophe that befell her. Something that was not of public knowledge until this admission on a UK television series.
12. Diana wanted to leave London
At the time of her death, she was making plans to move to Malibu, California. She wanted to get a second chance away from London and all the judgment. She was looking forward to living next to the beach with her sons and Burrell states that she was very excited at the prospect of living in America.
