To Orwell Today,
re: THE SPIRIT OF PRINCESS DIANA
I would like to write a note to Paul Burrell, who served as butler to the late Diana, former Princess of Wales. (She will always be HRH to me).
If you happen to have his mailing address or the address of the flower shop he and his wife own, I will be ever so grateful if you might share it with me so I can write a note to thank him for writing his beautiful story.
At first I thought when reading The Way We Were that he was betraying Diana's friendship, but as I got further along in the book, I began to realize he had to tell all of the things in this book.
I live in Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, the birthplace of Elvis Presley. So, I have a teensy bit of royalty (from the music world) here.
Thank you so much for any information you might be able to provide. If he writes me back as he did to the lady from Auburn, AL, mentioned on your website, I will let you know.
Sorry, but I don't have Paul Burrell's address but perhaps the lady from Auburn, Alabama (Geralynn) will send it in.
I did a quick google for Paul's flower shop and learned that it is in the village of Holt, Wexham (in Wales, I think):
Biography of Paul Burrell, former butler to the late Diana, Princess of Wales
That may give a springboard from which to find his mailing address. Please do let me know if you hear back from him so I can share the news with others to whom Diana will always be HRH.
Yes, living in THE KING'S birthplace you DO have "a teensy bit of royalty". I love Elvis too, especially this time of year when listening to him sing Christmas carols...."I'm dreaming of a White Christmas.....".
All the best,
