Princess Diana’s former butler believes if she were alive today she would have attended King Charles III’s coronation and overshadowed everyone there.
“I think she would have attended,” Paul Burrell told GBNews on Thursday.
“I think she would have looked stunning. She would have outshone everyone — much to the anger of some — but she would have done it with grace.”
The former butler emphasized that he “wouldn’t have thought that she would pass up such an event.”
“[Diana was] such a vociferous member of the royal family, so proud of her sons being part of the royal family, and proud of the monarchy,” he gushed.
Burrell added that Diana “would have moved on” by now and hopefully “would have found love” with someone else.
Diana — who died in a tragic car accident in August 1997 at age 36 — would have been 61 years old at the upcoming coronation on Saturday,
The late Princess’ name has come up more than usual over the last few months, since her ex-husband, King Charles, 74, is about to be officially be crowned king Saturday at Westminster Abbey in London.

“Charles is a man who a lot of people associate with breaking Princess Diana’s heart,” ABC journalist Deborah Roberts recently pointed out.
Roberts added that people also have mixed feelings over his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, who is now “going to be referred to as Queen, not Queen Consort, so there’s that feeling that another woman is taking Diana’s place next to the king on the throne.”
Diana and Charles tied the knot in 1981, but their marriage suffered from infidelity by both of them – including Camilla, 75, whom he ended up marrying in 2005.
The couple – who shared Prince William, 40, and Prince Harry, 39 – separated in 1992 before finalizing their divorce in 1996.
William and his wife, Kate Middleton, will attend along with their three children: George, 9, Charlotte, 8, and Louis, 5. Meanwhile, Harry will be present without wife, Meghan Markle, who will be in California celebrating son Archie’s fourth birthday.
