PRINCESS DIANA’s former butler Paul Burrell has been attacked on social media after revealing the late Princess of Wales was called her names by her mother for dating two Muslim men after her divorce from Prince Charles.
“If he had a modicum of respect for her and her sons he would shut up.
“It’s easy to attribute anything to the departed but so distasteful.”
Another argued Mr Burrell should be “ashamed” of still opening up on Diana’s secrets.

They said: “If he had any respect for his one-time boss and her family, surely he would have held family secrets as private and kept them out of the news.
“Shame on you Paul Burrell”.
Mr Burrell made his latest sensational claim after a documentary aired on the Smithsonian Channel in the US, titled “Princess Diana’s Wicked Stepmother”.
The film focused on Countess Raine Spencer, the second wife of Earl John Spencer, and her impact on Diana.

However, it also touched upon the relationship between Mrs Shand Kydd and her daughter.
Mr Burrell told Fox News, recalling what he believes was the last conversation between the mother and daughter: “I was in my little pantry underneath the main staircase of Kensington Palace and I could hear this sobbing coming out of [Diana’s] room.
“Then she shouted, ‘Paul, please come. Come quick.’
“So I ran up the staircase, and I found the princess crumpled in the middle of her room with the telephone to her ear, and she beckoned me to come closer.

“I could hear what her mother was saying.
“She said, ‘Listen. Listen to what mummy’s saying.’
“Mrs Shand Kydd had had a few to drink that night.
“She was berating the princess and then calling her a wh***.

“She said, ‘That’s what you are. I’ve raised a wh***, wh****g around town with Muslim men. You should be ashamed of yourself’.
“Diana was sobbing, saying ‘Mummy, please don’t say those words to me.
“‘Please don’t call me those names’. She begged her.

“She kept begging her not to say it.
“Of course, she’s repeating it in her drunkenness. Diana eventually said, ‘I’m going to put the phone down and I’ll never speak to you again.’
“And that’s exactly what she did. She never did speak to her mother again.”
