Dis Darling Dodi letters shown to inquestDecember 15th, 2007 - 1:17 pm ICT by admin
London, Dec 15 (ANI): Intimate letters, in which Princess Diana has addressed her lover Dodi Al Fayed as “Darling Dodi, have been read at the inquest into the couples deaths.
On Dec 14, the jury heard the astonishing letters, wherein the princess thanked Dodi for a holiday on his yacht and sent him her father’s cufflinks as a present.
In one of them Diana thanked her last boyfriend for bringing such joy to her life.
In one of the letters, dated Aug 6, 1997, she wrote: “Darling Dodi, heaven knows how I can thank you. I adored it all and every minute was full of laughter and happiness.
“I have never felt such rigid burden being removed as what happened with you, she added.
In the letter, the princess also referred to herself as a “chick, reports The Sun.
“As always I give you heartfelt thanks for bringing such joy into this particular chick’s life, she wrote.
In a second letter, written on August 13, 1997, in which she referred to cuffllinks which she said were the very last gift she received from her father.
Darling Dodi, these cufflinks were the very last gift from the man I loved most in the world, my father. They are given to you as I know how much joy it would give him to know they were in such safe and special hands, she wrote.
Michael Mansfield, the lawyer representing Dodi’s father Mohamed al-Fayed at the inquest, produced the extracts from the letters as he questioned Dianas friend and close confidante, Rosa Monckton, about the couple’s relationship.
Previously Monckton had dismissed reports the princess had been pregnant and suggested that Diana was still pining for her former lover, heart surgeon Hasnat Khan.
“She was treating this relationship with Dodi as a serious matter wasn’t she? It doesn’t suggest it was little more than a fling after a couple of days,” Mansfield asked Monckton.
She replied that Diana tended to speak and write in an extravagant way but agreed the letters were not just written to make someone happy. (ANI)
