Date August 23, 2019

Kitty Kelley is known for her extremely controversial unauthorized biographies. She changed the image of many famous people and even the British royal family didn’t get away from her.

Kelley’s scandalous book about the royals is a total page-turner. She treated the Queen in the same way she treated Frank Sinatra or Oprah.

The Royals is mostly based on unidentified sources. One of the stories in it completely shocked us. The author details Princess Diana’s ill-fated marriage to Prince Charles, noting that Lady Di had a crazy love affair with her bodyguard.

The love of her life?

Princess Diana once said in recordings made before her passing and shown on Channel 4 that Prince Charles wasn’t the love of her life, nor it was Dodi Fayed.

The Princess mysteriously added it was someone who worked in the same ‘environment’ with her. Many experts believe this man was Barry Mannakee, Diana’s bodyguard.

In 1985, Prince Charles started seeing Camilla Parker-Bowels again while still married to Diana. Lady Di knew about his affair but she had no one to turn. Then, a new Royal Protection Officer was assigned to her.

Barry Mannakee was a decade older than Diana and married with two children. But that didn’t stop the Princess to fall madly in love with him, as Kelley’s book suggests.

Prince Charles was reportedly convinced Diana and Barry had a love affair. Kitty writes the pair were seen flirting with each other. On the recording, the Princess said she would have been happy to run away with that man.

But when their relationship started raising suspicion, Mannakee was transferred from his post to the Diplomatic Protection Group in central London. Shortly after that, he was involved in a motorcycle accident – no one survived.

Diana didn’t believe it was just a tragic accident. According to royal author Andrew Morton, the Princess thought it was deliberate. We hope that someday we will find out whether she was right or not.
