“He had no right to be there other than as the father of her sons.
“Charles wanted to take the royal flight to Paris but the Queen wouldn’t allow it.
“Charles fought harder for Diana than he had ever fought for her in her lifetime.”
His request to travel to Paris was initially refused.
However, Prince Charles did not want to back down and eventually, the Queen gave him permission to use the royal plane to bring back Diana.
When Prince Charles arrived in Paris Princess Diana’s former butler, Paul Burrell, was in the hospital.
Speaking on the Channel 5 documentary he said: “He was devastated.
“This was a woman he had loved in his own way.”
Princess Diana’s coffin was taken to the royal plane, which was waiting at an airport in Paris.
This was just 16 hours after she had died.
The royal plane then landed at RAF Northolt just outside of London.
At the time of Diana’s death, the Royal family had been staying with the Queen and Prince Philip at Balmoral.
Prince Charles had to tell young Prince Willian and Harry the devastating news of the death of their mother.
It has been claimed that Prince Charles “absolutely fell apart” when he heard that his ex-wife had died.
He had received a divorce from Diana in the previous year.
Princess Diana died in a car accident in Paris on 31 August 1997.
