Diana’s mother called her a whore, according to the butler

Princess Diana’s former butler Paul Burrell told the inquest into her death on Monday that her mother had called her a whore for dating Muslim men.

Reuters reports that the butler said Diana ended her relationship with her mother, Frances Shand Kydd, after she had “expressed herself in extremely forceful terms about Diana’s consorts, especially if they were Muslim”.

Burrell claimed Kydd “called the Princess a whore and she said that she was messing around with f-ing Muslim men and she was disgraceful and said some very nasty things”.

Burrell has profited on his relationship with Princess Diana, selling two books about his stint as the princess’s butler.

Burrell was convinced Britain’s Royal family did not plot to kill her, an accusation that Dodi’s father, Harrods department store owner Mohamed al-Fayed has long suspected.

Burrell consistently rebutted all conspiracy theories regarding her death.

Burrell said: “I don’t believe that Prince Charles was capable of murdering the princess.”

And if Diana had contemplated marriage to Hasnat Khan?  Burrell said: “Yes, she did.”

“She asked me if it was possible to arrange a private marriage between her and Hasnat Khan,” Burrell said. The relationship ended soon after.

Asked about her summer romance with Dodi al-Fayed, Burrell said: “I think the princess was still burning a candle for Mr Khan.”

“The princess said he (Khan) was her soul mate. This was the man she loved more than any other,” Burrell told the court.
