Paul Burrells gives message to Kate Middleton and vows to tell boys the truth

Princess Diana’s former butler has revealed the five words he'd say to the Princess of Wales if they ever got to meet.

Paul Burrell, the former royal servant who Diana described as her “rock”, is sadly battling cancer and has said that he wants to see Harry and William again once more to share secrets that Diana gave him before her untimely death in 1997.

He told The Mirror that his diagnosis has left him fearing he will run out of time to “tell them the truth”, and added that he would love to meet William's wife Kate.

"I would love to meet her”, he said from his Cheshire home he shares with his husband Graham Cooper.

"I would love to shake her hand and just say: ‘you're doing everything perfectly well’”, he added.

Paul’s wish comes after he revealed that some of the secrets he wants to share with Prince William and Prince Harry aren’t “pretty”, adding: “My illness has focused my attention on telling the boys things before it's too late – telling them what they really should know."

Paul was diagnosed with cancer during a medical exam last summer, which highlighted an unusual reading in his blood.

After an MRI scan confirmed his illness, doctors put him on a “whirlwind” treatment plan that included receiving hormone replacement therapy, an operation in 10 days and further radiation therapy known as brachytherapy.

Paul said that not only wants to focus on raising awareness for the disease, but that he wants to “try and do my bit” to fix the deep divide between Diana’s two sons.

“Wouldn't it be wonderful to see the boys repair their relationship and to be back where they should be back”, he said.

He expressed regret that the boys didn’t get closer after Princess Diana tragically passed away in a car crash in 1997.

“That's what Diana would have wanted. For the two boys to be stuck side by side for the rest of their lives.

“Her death should have glued them together forever, but it didn't”, he said.
