Princess Diana had a very complicated relationship with her mom, Frances Shand Kydd.

Prior to her death, the two women spoke on the phone with Kydd ranting negative things to her daughter. Princess Diana’s former royal butler shared some details about Princess Diana and her mom’s phone call and said that this was the last time the two spoke.

According to Burrell, Princess Diana asked him to listen to her discussion with her mom.

“It was the slurring voice of Mrs. Frances Shand Kydd. What I heard was a torrent of abuse, swearing and upsetting innuendo towards the Princess and towards the male company, she was keeping. It was a hate-filled personal attack on the men and their religious beliefs,” he recalled (via The Sun).

The “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here” alum said that after Princess Diana hung up, she told him that she will never talk to Kydd again. Several years later, Burrell was asked to share details about the call, but he said that it’s not a very nice thing to discuss a dead person’s personal life.

“Respectfully that’s not very kind to a lady who’s no longer here… Well, she called the princess a whore. How prophetic and sad those words were – because she didn’t. It is something her mother will have to live with for the rest of her life,” Burrell said.

Years after her death, Kydd confirmed that she and Princess Diana never had the chance to talk during the final months leading up to her daughter’s death.

“Every family has these disagreements and disputes, which are irrelevant to the future,” she told The Independent.

She also slammed Burrell’s claim that he was Princess Diana’s rock.

“I think there has been a slight misinterpretation by Mr. Burrell when my daughter called him ‘my rock.’ This was a term she used regularly to many people. She called me her rock and star, and such terms were used to many people, including him, but not only him,” Kydd clarified.
