‘Don’t worry mummy’ Prince William made Diana HEARTBREAKING promise as HRH was taken away
Prince William made a promise to his late mother, Diana Princess of Wales before she died after she had her Royal title taken away, it has been revealed in an explosive new book.
When Princess Diana and Prince Charles divorced, there was a huge amount of contention around whether the late Princess should retain her title.
The Queen was reportedly happy for her to keep it, but Charles was not.
She became Princess Diana and shed her HRH, which meant she would have to curtsey to her sons and thereby further alienate her from the Royal family.
But according to his book, “A Royal Duty”, by the Princess’ former butler, Paul Burrel, Prince William vowed to help his mum reclaim her title.
Prince William said: “Don’t worry Mummy, I will give it back to you one day when I am king.”
The future King was 14-years-old at the time.
He was studying at Eton College in Windsor, Berkshire at the time.
But Prince William never had the chance to fulfil his promise as three years later, his mother died in Paris.
Mr Burrell and Princess Diana are said to have been close friends.
It was also claimed earlier this year he help her smuggle in her boyfriends into Kensington Palace.
Mr Burrell’s book claims the Princess had nine secret lovers, including a “famous musician”.
Former Bond girl Cecilie Thomsen made the allegation Bryan had cheated on her with Diana in an interview with Danish magazine Billed Bladet back in 2003.
At the time, Bryan told the Mail: “Miss Thomsen doesn’t know anything about my friendship with Diana, nor does anyone else.
“Anything you have read from these reports is pure conjecture and supposition.”
Cecilie dated Bryan for 12 years and says the “love affair” was behind their breakup.
She continued: “I knew Diana had an affair with Bryan.
“Bryan knew Paul Burrell very well and Paul was part of the inner circle around Bryan, and he also introduced him to Diana. The first time Bryan met Diana I wasn’t invited.
“Ours was a stormy relationship and Bryan’s affair with Diana didn’t make it easier. The affair was in 1996 after Diana’s divorce with Prince Charles.”
