Late Princess Diana's former butler Paul Burrell wants to 'share her secrets' with Princes William and Harry

Late Princess Diana’s former butler Paul Burrell has revealed he “must share her secrets” with her sons, Princes William and Harry.

He worked for the late Diana, who is preparing to undergo prostate cancer surgery and believes he may be running out of time to tell the estranged brothers “the truth.”

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “I know some of it isn’t pretty, but if I leave this place and go somewhere else, they’ll never know. I think they should know.

“My illness has focused my attention on telling the boys things before it’s too late – telling them what they should know. I think Diana would say to me, ‘Paul, you must make this a priority. You must go and see my boys’.

“She confided in me, and there are many things I have never spoken about, but now I feel the time is right.

The 64-year-old former servant wants to “try and do [his] bit” to help William and Harry reconcile and believes what he has to say could do just that.

He added: “I think what I have to say could bring the boys back together, which Diana would have desperately wanted. I will only tell them the truth, that is all. I am not looking for anything in return…

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to see the boys repair their relationship and be back where they should be back? The public would love that. I’d applaud that.

“I’d love to see William put his arm around his brother, but I don’t think we’re going to see that because there are too many obstacles in the way.”

Paul is particularly keen to sit down with the Prince of Wales and “fill in the gaps of those years that are missing in his mind.”

He said: “While he was away at school, he could ask me any question, and I would be able to answer. I want to tell the truth. Some truths may be complicated, but he’s not informed if he doesn’t know.

“I’d like to tell them the truth.

“Some things happened in their mother’s world which they may not know. And I think it just might fill in some blanks.

“If we ever sat down, I would say to William, ‘This is within these walls and will never come out.'”
