A paranoid Princess Diana claimed she had “someone to kill you” in late night phone calls to Camilla Parker Bowles, according to the new biography about the Duchess of Cornwall. '", author Penny Junor claims in her new book, The Duchess: The Untold Story.
"Without saying who was calling, she’d typically say: 'I’ve sent someone to kill you. The Princess is also said to have once left a note for private secretary Patrick Jephson a note which read: "We know where you are, and so does your wife [sic].
Diana, Princess of Wales was a woman whose warmth, compassion and empathy for those she met earned her the description the “people’s princess”.
Twenty years have passed since her death which shocked the world but her appeal remains undiminished - an icon of the 20th century.
“If you look at some of the issues she focused on, leprosy, Aids, landmines, she went for some tough areas.
She would have carried on with that.” The royal brothers announced earlier this year her memory would be honoured with a statue erected in the grounds of Kensington Palace with her sister Lady Sarah Mc Corquodale part of the team commissioning the artwork.
“Rather than this 20th anniversary being a great celebration of her legacy and looking back at all the marvellous things she did, an awful lot of this has been celebrated by going back over the same old ground, the marriage and her unhappiness, and I think that is really regrettable because it’s not helping anyone.” Ms Junor argued that Diana had, in part, changed the royals for the better. “But the business of baring their souls in public has not been a positive move and I think she was the one who started that.” Diana was a woman of contradictions, labelled a clothes horse for the expensive designer outfits she wore yet she used her public position to champion unfashionable causes from Aids awareness to banning landmines.
I know you’re being disloyal to me.” Documenting the relationship, between Prince Charles and the Duchess, the book claims that Camilla initially liked Diana and the pair formed a genuine friendship.
But in the months leading up to the royal wedding, Diana became jealous of their former relationship.
In 1994 Charles had confessed to adultery in a TV interview with broadcaster Jonathan Dimbleby, but said it happened only after his marriage had “irretrievable” broken down.
Diana’s legacy is being taken forward by her sons, who have not only adopted some of her causes, from Aids awareness to supporting the homeless, but reflect to a degree her ability to connect with the vulnerable and disadvantaged.
