Di’s Pakistani lover wonders why he isn’t testifying

The 47-year old heart surgeon had a two-year affair with Diana that ended just three months before her death in Paris in 1997.

However, he has not been called to speak at her inquest.

“I am not a legal man so I don’t know a lot about these things, but I was surprised that nobody called me. I would have attended if I had been asked,” The Sun quoted him, as saying.

Diana met Dr Khan at London’s Royal Brompton Hospital where she was visiting a friend’s sick husband. The couple fell in love and were soon enjoying passionate nights at Khan’s flat in Chelsea and inside Kensington Palace.

Friends of the late royal say that she even begged him to marry her, and went so far as to consider becoming a Muslim and travelling to Lahore, in Pakistan, in 1996 to meet his family.

However, Khan’s dislike of publicity, and fear that his family would not accept divorcee Diana doomed the relationship.

Last year, he told Lord Stevens’ 2006 inquiry into Di’s death that her moving to Pakistan would be the “only way he could see them having any sort of normal life together”.

The inquiry report stated that Diana even considered this.

“The Princess considered this an option for a while. She even went to Pakistan to speak to Jemima Khan about life there. However, after a while she no longer talked about Pakistan. Although she did not say so, Hasnat Khan got the impression she no longer considered it a possibility.” (ANI)
