Exclusive – Diana would still be here if I’d been on duty, ex-bodyguard claims
HE is the bodyguard who Princess Diana nicknamed Rambo and with whom she had several heart-to-hearts revealing her biggest fears and future plans.
In an exclusive interview, Lee has told how security guards drew straws to accompany bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones in the car, and he lost.
He also reveals the fun bets he had with a young Prince and how he treasures a letter from Diana thanking him for making her final sunshine holiday in St Tropez “magical” — and her fears she may be assassinated.
Lee, now 60, said: “It could have been me in that car.
“We drew straws to see who would be accompanying Trevor that weekend. I pulled a match and it was a long one.
“When I learned they were not wearing seatbelts in the crash I understood why they didn’t survive. That shouldn’t have happened.
“It was standard practice for the family to wear seatbelts. It was an order sent down from the boss, Dodi’s dad Mohamed Fayed. Dodi, in particular, hated wearing seatbelts and I always insisted on it.”
