Gory details have emerged of Princess Diana’s final fearful days, including claims she stored her own blood in case of a medical emergency or threat of attack
According to the royal’s former private secretary, Patrick Jephson, Diana would transport a fridge load of her own blood on every trip abroad as she was afraid an unwarranted attack would leave her in grave danger.
Diana also had her entire entourage tested for their blood types, should the need arise of her needing an emergency transfusion, he claims.
Jephson told The Daily Star: “Particularly when we were abroad or in the developing world, we would carry a little refrigerator full of spare supplies of Diana’s blood.”
“That sure took the glamour out of it. Each of us were tested so the doctors knew which of us could give her blood if she needed it,” he said.
“Diana was quite often under the threat of physical danger. A part of the job that was easy to forget and then you’d get a sharp reminder,” he added.
Princess Diana died after succumbing to injuries following a fatal car crash in Paris on 31 August 1997.
Meanwhile Princess Diana’s final words, according to a firefighter, have been revealed
Xavier Gourmelon claims he responded to the scene of the accident involving Diana and her then lover Dodi Fayed. Upon discovering the royal, the firefighter claims a distraught Diana uttered the words: “My God, what’s happened?”
Diana died moments later as a result of cardiac arrest, despite the first responder team’s every effort to save her.
