Princess Diana passed away in 1997 so it was unlikely for her to have met a 4-year-old boy named Billy. But according to the youngster’s dad, his son thinks that he’s the reincarnation of the late royal.

In the article he wrote for Stellar Magazine, TV presenter David Campbell revealed that Billy started talking about the Princess of Wales when he was just 2 years old. At that time, Billy’s mom showed him a photo of Prince William and Prince Harry’s mother.

After seeing the photo, Billy told his parents that Princess Diana was him when he was a princess. Campbell and his wife never told Billy anything about Princess Diana’s family background but their son suddenly talked about Princess Diana’s brother John.

John passed away before Princess Diana was born so the latter never had an actual relationship with him. Billy would also oftentimes talk about Princess Diana’s two boys. At the age of 3, Billy started referring to Prince William and Prince Harry as his sons.

However, this isn’t the only surprising things that Billy had been saying. Even though he’s never been to Balmoral Castle, he could accurately describe what’s inside the premises.

“To a Scottish friend of ours, he claimed when he was Princess Diana he used to go to a castle in the kitted wonderland. He described the castle as having ‘unicorns on it’ and was called Balmoral… The unicorn is the national animal of Scotland and there are unicorns on the walls… How does he know this?” Campbell said.

And if that’s not the most shocking thing about Billy, the 4-year-old also knows details about Princess Diana’s car accident from 1997. After his mom showed him a photo of the Princess of Wales, he said that it was him in the photo. But one day, the sirens came and he was no longer a princess.

“Will Billy grow up and never remember this? Could he actually be the reincarnated essence of the People’s Princess?” Campbell wondered.
