Princess Diana ‘had regret about James Hewitt’ after bombshell Bashir interview

Princess Diana's former butler, Paul Burrell, has revealed Diana only had "one regret" after her explosive 1995 BBC Panorama interview – and it was the effect on Harry and William's feelings.

Appearing on ITV chat show Lorraine this morning, Paul Burrell opened up about his former boss – the Princess of Wales – and has shared details of her feelings about her controversial interview with BBC journalist Martin Bashir.

This comes as a new inquiry into the BBC found the broadcaster covered up "deceitful information" to bag an interview with Diana.

And both Prince Harry and William have launched scathing attacks in response to the Martin Bashir interview – angry at the "culture of exploitation… [that] ultimately took her life".

Talking about Diana's famous letter to Martin Bashir, which claimed she had 'no regrets', Paul Burrell told Lorraine: "The letter was very interesting wasn't it? The letter the princess wrote.

The first time I'd seen that letter it was written by the princess, it's her hand, and she did write it, but it was an odd letter, saying that she hadn't seen any documents and that she had no regrets…"

Then the former butler revealed to Lorraine: "That's not true because she said to me I did have one regret from the interview – I did regret speaking about James Hewitt because I wondered how that would affect William and Harry".

Diana previously had an affair with Major James Hewitt, the Royal Family's former riding instructor, which led many to believe that Hewitt, not Charles, was Harry's dad due to the physical similarities people saw between him and Hewitt.
