Ex-Butler: Diana's Mom Called Her 'Whore' for Dating Muslim Men

Ex-Butler: Diana's Mom Called Her 'Whore' for Dating Muslim Men

LONDON — Princess Diana's former butler testified Monday that the princess' mother had called her a "whore" and criticized her for her associations with Muslim men.

At a coroner's inquest into Diana's death, Paul Burrell testified that Diana's mother, the late Frances Shand-Kydd, had destroyed much of Diana's private papers. Shand-Kydd had said she destroyed about 100 documents, but Burrell said he carried away half a dozen trash bags filled with shredded paper.

He said he didn't dare challenge the mother. "Mrs. Shand-Kydd was quite formidable ... and she did what she thought best."

Burrell said Diana had invited him to listen to a telephone conversation with her mother, who upbraided her daughter in June 1997 for romances with Muslims. That was before her romance with Fayed.

Burrell said he heard the mother say that Diana was "a whore and that she was (expletive deleted) around with Muslim men."

"She said some very nasty things," Burrell said.

Burrell also said there might be a secret about the late princess in a journal he kept but was unwilling to disclose. He later said there was no journal, he never kept one.

He was also reluctant to say which member of the royal family told Diana she should beware of surveillance, but he did write the name and passed the note to the coroner, Lord Justice Scott Baker. Baker looked at it, and said it had no relevance to the proceeding.

In an increasingly surreal day, Baker said the surveillance warning did not come from Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip or Sarah, Duchess of York. Burrell's note was given to a court official for safekeeping, and not disclosed.

It really looks like they need to close this case once and for all and let people get on with their lives.

It looks like Diana was hurt when the heart surgeon, Dr. Hasnat Khan . He broke up the relationship. Princess Diana would never have fit into the Muslim world and he knew it ... bet ya, Dodi was a rebound relationship and perhaps the hope was that she'd make the cdoctor jealous and get back together.

I didn't follow her life closely but that is what it sounds like. The accident was just that, an accident.

I am no Islam fan but I have to say this guy is paying her respect in not making a buck off their private relationship. He’s kept his silence till now.

“Ex-Butler: Diana’s Mom Called Her ‘Whore’ for Dating Muslim Men “

Looks like Diana’s Mother has some wisdom about her.

Disclamer: I couldn’t care less about Diana, and I find the fascination with her a little disturbing.

Well she was getting around ... I can see a mother saying that in anger.

I hope this ENDS this fascination. It’s time to leave the woman alone and live your own life.

(Plus Andrew, Edward, William, Harry, and an assortment of cousins, in-laws, and whatnot.)

Diana's mother called her a whore?!?!?

Diana's mother ran off with another man when Diana was 6 years old.

The rear bumper.

What is the point of these Mohammed Fayed-driven hearings where all the nastiness in Diana’s life is being dredged up yet again? Is Fayed going to be allowed to dredge all this up whenever he feels like it? What is the point of these hearings, and why do Diana’s friends and employees have to participate? Can’t they all just tell Fayed to go jump?

I wish everyone would leave this story alone. I can’t imagine her sons hearing some of this stuff and how it must affect them even though I’m sure they have learned to dismiss most of it. I think it must be difficult enough at their age to have to deal with all these rumors and books etc. Who cares what her mom said now? It means nothing and only hurts her sons.

“Disclamer: I couldn’t care less about Diana, and I find the fascination with her a little disturbing.”

me too! she would have fit in well with the Hollywood crowd that sleep around. From all that has been said and printed it appears her fascination was with lots of men, not just Muslim. Would I be committing blasphemy if I defined her a well bred slut??

Same here, too. I remember once, I was on a plane trip, and some woman was reading a biography of Di. This was years before her martydom, and I remember saying to my wife as we took our seats "why would anybody read a biography of Princess Di?" I still wonder.

The truth is looking more and more obvious ... and time to put it to rest. There is no “conspiracy”. Her drunk driver caused her death. End of sad story.

I have a Christopher Hitchens Joke. How are Princess Diana and a mine field alike?

They are both easy to lay but expensive, difficult and dangerous to get rid of.

My sentiment exactly ... my wife, on the other hand, always comes down firmly on Diana's side. Diana was a highly promiscuous trollop ... not deserving in any way the type of adulation showered on her after her untimely death.

Then it would appear she was eminently qualified to make the whore call...as in it takes one to know one.

I had two young Brits staying with me, one was a socialist and the other was a monarchist, when Diana and Charles were married.

The monarchist was glued to the television during the whole event and the socialist mocked him the whole time.

It is time to let this lady rest in peace..She seemed to have only one true friend in the world and I think that was her Butler..She was a great mother and she loved people..I admired her so very much..with what she went through with that disfuncionel husband she deserves a medal..His jackass looking whore of a girlfriend has now got what she wanted Dianna out of the way..I really think the reason Prince Charles was the way he was toward Dianna is he was jealous of her,people loved her and not him..I for one will always wonder if her death was and accident or murder..but we will never know since the politicians are exactly the same there as here..Cover ups all the way around.. Rest in Peace Dianna you deserve it...

I am curious to what the Muslim men called her. I am sure it was angelic and honorable.

Most if not all of Diana’s insecurities and emotional problems which ended up being exacerbated by her marriage started with the behavior of her mother and father. Diana’s mother was in no position to get on her high horse with respect to anything her daughter was doing. To her credit, Diana’s mother supposedly tried to keep her from marrying Prince Charles, as she saw all the pitfalls ahead for Diana.

Diana was a highly promiscuous trollop ... not deserving in any way the type of adulation showered on her after her untimely death.

I don't really see how any of us could know something like that. And the above comments about her being like Britney Spears? Come on, now...

At any rate, I attribute the American media's fascination with Diana to the fact that they view the USA along the same lines. A plutocracy, with liberals being "the royals" and everyone else beneath them. It's just with the British, it's not make-believe.

It's tragic about what happened with this generation of royals. Yet looking at the mess Charles had become it's tough to judge Diana too harshly. He reminds me of the king's son in braveheart, sans a "boy Friday" fop at his side. He's got Camilla instead, which might possibly be illegal in some states here across the Atlantic. I mean, Charle's greatest ambition in life was to become her tampon. What's worse is that he succeeded brilliantly.

It's no small wonder that Queen Elizabeth has lived for so long and is likely to live several more decades. She's waiting for Charles to die off and pass the crown onto her grandchildren.
