Did Princess Diana bed her royal butler? That’s what Paul Burrell's brother-in-law tells the News of the World, per a 1993 pub confession. "He suddenly tells me he's been having a sexual relationship with Princess Diana," Ron Cosgrove said. “He said they did it in the bedroom, the bath, everywhere. He claimed Diana liked to be domineering.”

“He’d get a call from Diana in the middle of the night specifically to have sex with her. He said she was very sexually demanding—'a bit ****ing kinky' were his words—and if you worked for the princess you worked for her 24/7,” Cosgrove, brother of Burrell's wife, Maria, recounts. "He said, ‘It's something I've got to do.' Like it was part of his duties.” (Read more Princess Diana stories.)
