........ even though many statements & opinions are &/or turn out to be way off. The one that really upset me was Judy Wade. She said that many times Paul Burrow (sp?), the Queen's top footman who moved up to Diana's butler & friend, would never betray Diana & then did with his tell all book to cash in & make money & did betray her in the process. There's a glaring argument to be made for Paul & it is as follows:
To Judy Wade:
Paul said numerous times he would have taken it all to his grave had not Prince Charles (🐔💩) not have had him arrested, his home torn apart with a court battle that lasted over a year, which was halted & charges dropped when the Queen remembered that Diana entrusted him, should something happen, to remove certain item & sensitive docs, letters,etc. from her home & to protect them. They not only took those, when dumping ever drawer & cloet, etc on the floors, they even took all the gifts she'd given him over the years! He had all of these things in his attic, if he was out to make money, he would have been selling them off piece by piece & making millions, but he was not! If 1 good picture of her was worth $500k+ or more, what do you think her private papers, letters, journals, notes,etc after she was gone would be worth? They were a priceless gold mine & he didn't sell or betray her once! Charles & gang did that by hanging him & then leave him in major debt! Quick to accuse, no help fixing what they caused, walked away with Paul's life in ruins. I don't blame him at all!
? Question: Why did it take the Queen over a year to remember? She knew Paul very well, he was her personal valet for 14 years, being together all day & forming a closeness few have. Just putting out there to ponder. I still love her, but it's just odd to remember so long afterwards...... has me a little perplexed is all....... discuss.
Everyone knows & it's said in this documentary that servants of the Royal Family are very under paid & Paul had huge debts all because Charles wouldn't meet with him to ask why Paul had these items before all the ugly happened & instead went nuclear ugly, by having him arrested, dragging his name & reputation though mud, then after a year of LEGAL BILLS, FEES, FINES, BAIL, etc, which were over $2,500,000.00+ in US$ (which the RF, would not pay after it was their screw up, never mind what they emotionally did to him for over a year).
He had nothing & was going to loose his family's home, everything & file bankruptcy. Plus he had 2 small children he had to care for at that time He had no choice, the very people & institution he was protecting, royally screwed him (pun intended). He had to make a huge amount & fast! Don't judge a man until you've walked in their shoes! I don't blame him for writing a tell all, in which his love for Diana shows. The majority of his "tell all" is about himself, the arrest & hearings, in which Charles' was guiding & hell bent on bringing Paul down.
Long story short Ms. Wade, you are wrong! Paul is not greedy, he did what he had to do. To protect his family, pay huge debts when the crown left him hanging surrounded by a pile of debt with no other way out. I truly believe Diana would of in fact has forgiven Paul, because when no one was listening to her she did the same thing with "Diana, Her True Story". If not for what they put him through, I honestly believe we'd all be saying Paul who?
Update: Paul with now ex-wife and his two grown children, are very close. In fact his ex is still a best friend & they all accept him since he came out of closet. He now has a hubby & owns village flower shop away from London & occasionally does freelance guest appearances. Finally all is good for him, & unlike you Ms. Wade, I don't blame him for what he had to do & wish him & his extended family all the best!
