Diana’s mother ‘condemned her as disgrace for seeing Muslim men’

Diana, Princess of Wales, was condemned by her mother as a disgraceful “whore” who was messing around with Muslim men, the inquest into her death heard today.

Paul Burrell, the Princess’s former butler, told the High Court that he had been allowed to listen into a telephone call where Frances Shand Kydd rounded on her daughter for having a relationship with Hasnat Khan, a Pakistani consultant cardiologist.

Mr Burrell said: “Well she called the Princess a whore and she said that she was messing around with f****** Muslim men and she was disgraceful and said some very nasty things.” It was this telephone conversation, Mr Burrell admitted, that prompted the Princess to sever links with her mother, who has since died.
