Dodi affair was over, inquest told
The relationship between Diana, Princess of Wales, and Dodi Fayed was over a few weeks before the couple were fatally injured in a car crash, her inquest was told yesterday.
Rodney Turner, a personal friend of the Princess, who supplied her with luxury vehicles, said he was told by the royal not to "fuss" as the pair had stopped seeing each other.
Mr Turner also described as a "bombshell" the revelation Diana made in a letter given to her butler, Paul Burrell, that her then husband, the Prince of Wales, was planning to have her killed.
The HR Owen director struck up a business relationship with the Princess in late 1995 when he began supplying her with BMW cars and they also had a personal contact as he sent his son to the prestigious Eton College public school where Diana's sons, Princes William and Harry, both studied, the inquest jury was told.
Commenting on Diana's relationship, Mr Turner told the hearing in central London: "What she said to me was that it was all over, which was really a shock to me."
He said the Princess added: "Don't fuss, don't fuss. It's all over. I've had a wonderful time."
