Princess Diana's mother called her a 'whore'

By Chris V. Thangham     Jan 15, 2008 in World
Princess Diana's former butler said her mother disliked Diana’s choice of boyfriend and called her a whore for dating Muslim men. He said Diana then broke off her relationship with her mother.
Nobody seems to follow the saying, “Never speak ill of the dead,” but is frequently ignored when it comes to Princess Diana. At the inquest of her death, her former butler, Paul Burrell, to whom she entrusted her secrets, is giving out one juicy whopper after another as well as writing two books about her.
He said Princess Diana’s mother, Frances Shand Kydd, made derogatory comments about Diana’s boyfriend, heart surgeon Hasnat Khan. Princess Diana broke off her relationship with her mother after those disparaging comments.
Mrs. Kydd, who died in 2004, reportedly "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," according to Burrell.
Burrell said he overheard the telephone conversation of Diana’s with her mother, after Diana allowed him to listen.
He said Diana had been considering "a private marriage" to Khan before they broke up and disputed claims she was getting engaged to Dodi al-Fayed. He said Diana wanted to marry Husnat Khan, but Husnat ended their relationships after he couldn’t handle the media spotlight on Princess Diana on a daily basis.
Diana was devastated by the breakup, according to Burrell.
He spoke to a packed court at the inquest into her death and said he was convinced the Royal family did not plot to kill her, an accusation from Dodi’s father, the Harrods department store owner Mohamed al-Fayed. Burrell said the Windsor family loved Diana’s children and would definitely not hurt the children by killing her.
He also spoke about Prince Phillip, who he said may not have any diplomacy, but he definitely wouldn’t have written those scathing letters he supposedly gave to Diana.

Instead of talking about her great charity efforts, people like Burrell are dragging her name into the mud like a bad soap opera. At least for the sake of Diana’s children, they should let her rest in peace.
