Paul Burrell joined Lorraine Kelly on her ITV show this morning to discuss Princess Diana’s infamous interview with Martin Bashir. The former royal butler explained Diana would not be happy with Prince William and Prince Harry's reported feud and vowed she would “bang their heads together”. The revelation comes ahead of a new Channel 5 documentary uncovering why Diana opened up to the relatively unknown BBC reporter 25 years after the interview.
Addressing Diana’s infamous interview, Lorraine asked: “Did she ever wish she hadn’t spoken out?"
Paul replied: “She wished she hadn’t said so much she said to me once because what she feared was what the boys would think.
“She feared the reaction from them because they were still children and to hear their mother say on national television, yes she was in love with James Hewitt and she adored him that would have repercussions on her children.
“And she was always thinking about her boys. Her boys were the centre of her world, they were her life nothing came before her children.”
