Princess Diana letter: 'Charles plans to kill me'
Telegraph.co.uk ^ | Dec 20 2007 | Gordon Rayner, Chief Reporter

Posted on 12/19/2007 8:14:18 PM PST by camerakid400

handwritten letter in which Diana, Princess of Wales claimed that the Prince of Wales was plotting to kill her so he could marry Tiggy Legge-Bourke, the former nanny to Princes William and Harry, has been shown at the inquest into her death.

The note was sent to Paul Burrell, the princess's then butler, in October 1993, 10 months after her separation from Prince Charles was announced.

The letter written by Diana to Paul Burrell

She wrote: "I am sitting here at my desk today in October, longing for someone to hug me and encourage me to keep strong and hold my head high.

"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."

The letter has been shown at the inquest at the Royal Courts of Justice in London to witnesses who have been challenged over their assertions that the princess did not fear for her safety.

Sorry, but it sounds like one of her wacky periods. They were already separated and divorce was coming so why would he have to kill her?

She was wrong about that too.

I think she was starkers, bonkers, around the bend, getting fitted for a white suit. In short the dear lady was nuts.

As long as Dodi’s dad Mohammed El Fayed is drawing breath and has his millions to pour out, you may rest assured that inquests, lawsuits and strange tidbits (and even stranger characters) will continue to emerge as if from a horn of plenty.

Remember when you ran away
And I got on my knees
And begged you not to leave
Because I’d go berserk?
Well. . .

You left me anyhow
And then the days got worse and worse
And now you see I’ve gone
Completely out of my mind
And. . .

They’re coming to take me away, HA HA
They’re coming to take me away, HO HO HEE HEE HA HA
To the funny farm
Where life is beautiful all the time
And I’ll be happy to see
Those nice, young men
In their clean, white coats
And they’re coming to take me away, Ha-haaa!

You thought it was a joke
And so you laughed
You laughed when I had said
That losing you would make me flip my lid
Right. . .

You know you laughed, I heard you laugh
You laughed, you laughed and laughed
And then you left
But now you know I’m utterly mad!
And. . .

They’re coming to take me away, HA HA
They’re coming to take me away, HO HO HEE HEE HA HA
To the happy home
With trees and flowers and chirping birds
And basket weavers who sit and smile
And twiddle their thumbs and toes
And they’re coming to take me away, Ha-haaa!

I cooked your food
I cleaned your house
And this is how you pay me back
For all my kind, unselfish loving deeds?!!
Hah. . .

Well you just wait
They’ll find you yet
And when they do they’ll
Put you in the ASPCA, you mangy mutt!
And. . .

They’re coming to take me away, HA HA
They’re coming to take me away, HO HO HEE HEE HA HA
To the funny farm
Where life is beautiful all the time
And I’ll be happy to see
Those nice, young men
In their clean, white coats
And they’re coming to take me away, Ha-haaa!

To the happy home
With trees and flowers and chirping birds
And basket weavers who sit and smile
And twiddle their thumbs and toes
And they’re coming to take me away, Ha-haaa!

To the funny farm
Where life is beautiful all the time
And I’ll be happy to see
Those nice, young men
In their clean, white coats
And they’re coming to take me away, Ha-haaa!

Wasn’t he like George the 5 1/2? I guess those Seinfeld appearances didn’t do to much for his desire to overthrow the thrown.

I wonder what was in Vince Foster’s papers that were removed by Hillary Clinton and Co.

Funny, William and Harry are actually serving and showing steadfastness but stay out of the news.

Diana never did anything but be a pretend princess, yet she cant stay out of the limelight 10 years after death.

Bit of a disconnect on my part.
Intuitively obvious.

And I suspect without a whole lot more, given Chuckie's taste.

Saturday Night Live had a skit in 1995 that portrayed Diana as a tad nutty. Diana was played by Anthony Edwards, who used to be on "ER".

From what I've read, all of her periods were wacky.

Mad as in nutty, whacky kind of mad?

That is what the impression I get of her.

The only thing I think she was spot on about is Charles used her as a breeding tool.

Wonder if it is just rumor that her 2nd boy was not Charles’ kid.

A DNA swab would make that fact or fiction.

“Will Diana ever go away?”

I blame the press on this one. They followed her every way possible and some of their manuevers deplorable. (i.e.; shooting a picture of her while she was carrying William.)

This one is deplorable. How did this letter get to the media???
