Is Paul Burrell still Diana’s ‘Rock’? As he stars in the Diana Inquest, it seems he can no longer keep his ‘secrets’, and maybe they are not really secrets at all. For as the Coroner takes no nonsense from him, we can begin to doubt what the Butler knew.
Of course, we could be gracious and argue that Burrell will take Diana’s real secrets to the grave with him, despite what the Coroner demands him to disclose. But I suspect I must only say this to add a touch of balance to the melodrama.
Paul Burrell has been centre stage in the Diana ‘story’ almost since her death, and in today’s world, we can perhaps forgive him for trying to milk it for all it’s worth. But the saying can never be the same again. Now, it is what the public saw of the Butler.
