A former butler of Princess Diana recalled the time when she decided to not attend a 1994 Vanity Fair party where she wore her famous Christina Stambolian black cocktail dress.
Paul Burrell, 60, from Cheshire revealed Diana was upset as she didn’t want to face the world after her husband Prince Charles admitted having an affair with Camilla Parker Bowles on TV.
Diana then 33 was all set to go to the Serpentine Gallery in Hyde Park but Prince Charles’ confirmation that he had an affair with Camilla disturbed her.
Recalling the day, Paul said: “This was my favourite dress.I remember this evening well, the Princess turned to me and said “I’m not going, I can’t face the world. Not after Prince Charles has just been on national TV discussing his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles.
”I said “you are going”, and she said, “I’ve got nothing to wear!” Paul then encouraged her to face the world and reminded her that she is the mother of the future King of England.
He added: ”So I went to her wardrobe, pulled out this dress, zipped her up and the finishing touches were the pull choker and high heels.”
”As she left I said to her “Remember to say this to yourself: I am Diana, the Princess of Wales, I am here to stay and I am the mother of the future King of England. She did it, and I was so proud of her.”
Princess Diana’s appearance that day made her earn praises as many people noticed she looked more confident and serene. Prince Charles has admitted to Jonathan Dimbleby on TV on the same evening that his broken marriage made him commit to adultery.
The next day Dimbleby confirmed that the prince Charles ”was unfaithful with someone who was a long-standing friend, that is Mrs Parker Bowles.” Prince Charles and Diana’s divorce was finalised on 28 August 1996, after one year Diana passed away in hospital following a car crash.
