From 1995 to 1997, Lady Diana had a love affair with surgeon Hasnat Khan. The man capsized the heart of the princess, until her death.

Lady Diana has known several men in his life. But only one really fulfilled it. After his separation with prince charles, the mother ofHarry and William started a romance in 1995 with Hasnat Khan, cardio-thoracic surgeon, whom she met at the hospital: he had just operated on one of her friends. Despite their multiple efforts to keep their romance a secret, suspicions began to arise. So, in June 1997, he decided to end their relationship for good.

Then, the former daughter-in-law ofElizabeth ii got closer to Dodi Al-Fayed, son of the Egyptian billionaire Mohamed Al-Fayed. In reality, their love story was not sincere: the princess was not really in love with this new companion, with whom she found death, on August 31, 1997, in a car accident in Paris, under the Place de l’Alma. He also died.

And for good reason, the princess has never forgotten Hasnat Khan, the only man she loved deeply. Simone simmonds, one of her close friends – she even dedicated a book to him, Diana: the last word, in 2005 – said in the columns of Daily Star that she “was not in love with Dodi”. “She always loved Hasnat Khan, this surgeon that she attended in the past “she specified.

Lady Diana: her plans for the future with Hasnat Khan

According to Simone simmonds, Lady Diana had several wishes, including that of settling in America, or South Africa, with Hasnat Khan. “Dodi was there to try to make Hasnat Khan jealous. He was just a playboy, and not Diana’s style at all. She even told me that she hated sex with men with hairy backs, which made us laugh, ”she continued.

Hasnat Khan, who was present at Lady Diana’s funeral, denounced in 2013 the script of the film Diana’s Last Love, which traces their love story. “It is based on gossip and testimonies from friends of Diana who knew nothing of our history, as well as from some of my acquaintances, who also ignored everything. Everything is built on rumors and people say,” he explained to the Daily Mail.

The Pakistani-born health professional had also let it be known that, now, he was not embarrassed to be “known as Diana’s former companion” because history could not be changed. However, he never wanted to tell their story publicly. “Everyone wants crisp details and I’ll never reveal them,” he told The Sun. Now 61 years old, the doctor is still very discreet.
