‘She wanted to see her boys’ – Princess Diana’s last phone call laid bare by close friend

PRINCESS DIANA’s last phone call before her tragic death has been laid bare by one of her close friends.

In an upcoming ITV documentary set to be released on June 24, journalist Richard Kay revealed he was the last person the late Princess of Wales’ called. In an emotional extract from the upcoming 90-minute film, Mr Kay recalled the moment the police broke the heartbreaking news to him.

He believed Diana was trying to embrace a new chapter in her life after her split from Prince Charles one year prior.

Mr Kay said: “I spoke to her that night.

“[The] police said that the last call she made was to me.”

Mr Kay continued: “I felt that she was in quite a good place.

“She was desperate to try and make a fresh start and do something different, to explore a different kind of Royalty.

“And she wanted to come back and see her boys.”

The documentary, Diana, celebrates the “remarkable life” of the late Princess in the year which would have marked her 60th birthday.

According to one synopsis of the programme, the feature-length documentary features rarely heard interviews and archive footage which explores some of the most significant events in Diana’s life.

When the show was announced, Executive Producer, David Glover, explained the documentary came at the “perfect time to re-examine her life and legacy”.

He said: “There is something a bit magical about Princess Diana – and despite the difficulties in her personal life she managed to use her connection with people to do huge amounts of good.

“Her 60th birthday feels like the perfect time to re-examine her life and legacy and explore just how she went from a relatively unknown teenager to the most mourned person who ever lived.”

The documentary is set to be released nearly a month after Lord Dyson uncovered serious wrongdoing in relation to Princess Diana’s BBC Panorama interview with Martin Bashir.

The inquiry found Mr Bashir faked documents and used “deceitful behaviour” to scoop the interview with the Princess of Wales.

Reminiscing about Diana’s sad farewell at Kensington Palace, Mr Kay said the whole day was “desperately sad”.
