Queen’s footman Burrel the 44-year-old butler unveiled the level of the Princess’s love for the doctor in a thrilling 39-page statement to police investigating the assumed theft of more than 300 of Diana’s personal possessions.
The rumors are that Princess Diana begged heart surgeon Hasnat Khan to marry her. The Princess wanted to get married to her lover in a secret ceremony and even asked Burrell to approach a priest to organize it.
Burrell’s statement also looked back to the day Diana married Charles. Being the Queen’s footman, he took care of the bridal party on the wedding day and served the bride and groom and their immediate family their wedding breakfast.
The moment when the Queen revealed that she knew the butler had taken some of Diana’s possessions for safekeeping that moment came as the consequences of the collapse of Burrel’s £1.5million trial. Burrel revealed that The Princess considered Dr Khan her ‘soulmate’. ‘The Princess loved many of her male friends, but she was in love with Hasnat Khan’.
The Princess wanted Hasnat Khan to be photographed with her and publicize that so that he would not be troubled about it as much in the future and at the same time as she was dating him.
The princess also saw Gulu Lalvani, who was the managing director of Binatone, the electrical company and was photographed out publicly with him. This step was taken by her in order to make Hasnat Khan more committed and jealous, which she later regretted.
Hasnat was a decent, powerful private man from a traditional, conservative Pakistani family, and he was worried about how it would work. And he even hated the thought of being in the glare of publicity for the rest of his life.
