Princess Diana's former butler coms out as gay


Paul Burrell the former butler to Princess Diana, whom she described as her “rock”, has come out as gay.

The 58-year-old, who now works as a florist in Cheshire, also announced that he would be marrying his partner, lawyer Graham Cooper, 58, next month.

The couple will be celebrating their wedding with a circus-themed ceremony in a five-star hotel in the Lake District.

Burrell, who has two sons, divorced his wife Maria, last year.

A source told the Sun that Burrell was “so much happier now that he can tell the world and be comfortable with himself and his relationship.”
