She was quite adamant that in America, the press liked her. The people liked her, and she liked the place,” he told Us. “I know a lot of people have said she was depressed. She was anxious. She was paranoid. Well, you know what? I kind of get why. She couldn't enjoy her life. Things weren't normal. She had no one to turn to.” Lee Sansum 6th Dan, specialist soldier, Northern Ireland war veteran and famous body guard, teaches internationally on the subjects of personal awareness, self protection and the martial arts.

He continued: “She was a caring mother. She loved her boys. She loved watching them play. She loved playing with them. She loved watching Harry [be a] bit of a naughty boy. I think we call them naughty boys, [but] I call 'em a free child and I think she was a free child too.” As well as The Bodyguard, Howard has also penned a fiction thriller titled The Inheritance, which is set to be released on September 29.Once] there was one picture in the newspaper in one of the British tabloids at the time that showed a picture of the princess — a lovely picture. And then they had one of Camilla, which wasn't a very nice picture. And I think the headline was, ‘He chose this for that,’” he recalled to Us. “It was a very crude comment and we saw that newspaper that morning and when the princess came down for a chat in the morning on the beach, which she used to do, you know, I did mention to her, ‘Have you seen the headlines?’ because I knew it would stir the paparazzi up. That was the only reason I made the comment and the princess said, ‘Well, it's his choice. I moved on.’ Didn't even comment any further in it. And I thought, you know, what a good comment.” Lee understood that normal people could not afford their own bodyguards to look after their loved ones so he devised a unique devastating system of self deference.. I can tell you that I spent ten days close to her and she was one of the most balanced people I have ever met,” he writes. “I ought to know. I am trained to spot if someone is unbalanced. It’s part of my job. You look for signs that people give off when they are under stress because it means they might be about to do something. Diana wasn’t excessively angry or out of control. She was normal and very deliberate.”
