Latest from Meghan Markle – Harry ‘has made a MASSIVE decision’ on whether to see the Queen on an upcoming trip to the UK
Exclusive – Diana would still be here if I had been on duty, claims ex-bodyguard
He is the bodyguard that Princess Diana dubbed Rambo and has had several one-on-ones with revealing her biggest fears and plans for the future.
And 25 years after her death, Lee Sansum says he is adamant she would be alive today if he had been with her the night she died alongside Dodi Fayed in a car accident in Paris on August 31, 1997.
In an exclusive interview, Lee recounted how security guards fired straws to accompany bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones in the car, and he lost.
He also reveals the amusing bets he had with a young prince and how he cherishes a letter from Diana thanking him for making his last sunny holiday in Saint-Tropez “magical” – and his fears of being murdered.
Lee, now 60, said: “It could have been me in that car.
“We drew short straws to see who would accompany Trevor this weekend. I fired a match and it was long.
“When I learned that they weren’t wearing seat belts during the accident, I understood why they hadn’t survived. It shouldn’t have happened.
“It was common practice for the family to wear seat belts. It was an order sent by the boss, Dodi’s father, Mohamed Fayed. Dodi, in particular, hated wearing seat belts and I always insisted on it.
