Princess Diana Letter Claimed Charles Wanted Her Murdered

A handwritten letter in which Diana, Princess of Wales, claimed that her husband was planning to kill her was revealed in full for the first time yesterday at the inquest into her death.

Written by the Princess in October 1996, she told of her belief that the Prince of Wales wanted her dead so he could marry Tiggy Legge-Bourke, a nanny to Princes William and Harry.

The Princess, who mistakenly believed that Legge-Bourke was having an affair with Prince Charles and had been made pregnant by him, wrote that Camilla Parker Bowles was "nothing but a decoy."

She gave the letter to her butler Paul Burrell, who revealed its existence in a book in 2003.
