EXCLUSIVE – Diana would still be here if I was on duty, ex-bodyguard claims
HE is the bodyguard nicknamed Rambo by Princess Diana and with whom she had several heart-to-heart conversations, during which her greatest fears and future plans were revealed.
And 25 years after her death, Lee Sansum says he firmly believes she would be alive today if he had been with her the night she died in a car crash in Paris on August 31, 1997.
In an exclusive interview, Lee has opened up about how security forces pulled straws to escort bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones in the car and he lost.
He also reveals the fun bets he had with a young prince and how he cherishes a letter from Diana thanking him for making her recent sun holiday in St Tropez ‘magical’ – and her fear to be murdered.
Lee, now 60, said: “I could have been in that car.
“We drew straws to see who would be joining Trevor this weekend. I drew a match and it was a long one.
“When I learned they weren’t wearing their seat belts in the accident, I understood why they didn’t survive. That should not have happened.
“It was customary for the family to wear seat belts. It was an order from the boss, Dodi’s father, Mohamed Fayed. Dodi in particular hated wearing seat belts and I always insisted on it.”
