Queen warned butler on his safety
This story is getting truly weird. Ok, the butler goes on trial for stealing Diana’s belongings after her death, then is saved, at the last possible moment by direct intercession of the Queen. Now the butler says the Queen previously warned him his life could be in danger. Curiouser and curiouser.
Paul Burrell, the former butler to Diana, Princess of Wales, who recently faced charges of stealing some of her belongings, shocked Britain yesterday with a suggestion that the Queen warned him in a private meeting of mysterious forces at work in the country that could put his safety at risk.
In an interview published in the Daily Mirror, Mr. Burrell said that shortly after Diana was killed in 1997, he had a three-hour meeting with the monarch in which she reportedly told him: “There are powers at work in this country about which we have no knowledge.”
