Princess Diana was “really scared” her secret relationship would be exposed to the public, according to a royal expert. Ingrid Seward revealed that she had been summoned to the late royal’s residence in Kensington Palace to be probed over what information she had. Ms Seward told True Royalty’s Royal Beat that the Princess of Wales did not want her romance to be “ruined” by publicity.
She said: “I came to Kensington Palace literally six weeks before she died because I’d written something in the Daily Mail that she didn’t like.
“So her secretary rang and said, ‘The Princess thinks that you should have a little girly chat’.
“So I duly came here and had a very long girly chat with her.
“The article had been about how a car had driven into the Palace with somebody under a rug at the back.”
Ms Seward continued: “I didn’t know who it was, but I was implying that she had a gentleman caller, which she did of course.
“She was really scared that the public were going to get hold of this story and that was going to ruin her romance.
“She thought I knew, which I absolutely didn’t.
“I was called to the Palace to find out what I knew, which I thought was very clever of her actually.”
The expert added: “She was really sweet because of course Diana could be 10 different people in one day.
“But she was really sweet and we laughed a lot. We talked about Mohamed Al-Fayed and what she had been doing.
“We did talk about her charity work. She was happy with the way she had evolved and the way she had moved on from the Royal Family.”
