Princess Diana in SHOCK 90mph speeding incident – former bodyguard reveals

Princess Diana’s former elite bodyguard has detailed the moment she drove 20mph over the speed limit on a British motorway.


Princess Diana tragically died in a Paris car crash 21 years ago.

The devastating news left a huge mark on Britain and she is still remembered today as the “Queen of people’s hearts”.

In Amazon Prime documentary “Serving the Royals: Inside the Firm”, the film reveals that Diana was a risk-taker who was not afraid to break the rules.

Now, recalling her reckless side, Diana’s former bodyguard has detailed the moment she was stopped by a police officer after driving at 90mph.

Ken Wharfe worked for Scotland Yard’s protection squad and was sent to protect the Princess day and night with a gun at the ready in case of any risk to her life.

Ken noted: “Diana once said to me, would you take a bullet for me?

“I said, well now of course I would but I’d prefer not to.”

In footage from the show, the narrator says: “Diana sometimes took risks with the attitude that staff could sort things out and that she could get away with anything.”

Princess Diana’s former bodyguard then describes a shocking incident that he experienced with the Princess as she drove along the motorway.

“I noticed that Diana’s speed was reaching 90mph, which is 20 miles over the legal limit, and I said ‘watch your speed'” he added.

To this, Diana responded: “Well, you’ll take care if anything happens.”

“No, actually you’ll have to take care of it,” Mr Wharfe replied.

He added: “Almost immediately I got a signal from my backup driver saying we think there’s an unmarked police car approaching.”

According to Mr Wharfe, the police officer stood aside after realising who was driving the vehicle but he insisted it was a police matter.

“He gave her this lecture,” Mr Wharfe recalled.

“He essentially said, look, you know, I’m giving you an official caution on this occasion.”
