|FERGIE: BURRELL BETRAYS DIANA
By Ryan Parry
SARAH Ferguson has joined in the backlash against former Royal butler Paul Burrell saying he "betrayed" Princess Diana.
She said he should not reveal Diana's supposed secrets when she is not alive to refute his claims.
The Duchess of York added: "If that's how he gets his kicks then fine, but I don't think it's right to betray a person, especially as they are not here to say, 'I didn't say that, I didn't do that'."
Fergie, 46, said he was hurting Diana's sons William and Harry.
She told Good Day LA on US TV: "We love her. Why can't people just let her rest in peace? Those boys are great boys. Why do they keep having to hear mum things?"
TV presenter Philip Schofield blasted Burrell last week.
He said while interviewing him about his latest book: "It would appear that you were her rock - but now she's your pension."
Burrell, 48, claims in The Way We Were that Diana dreamed of become America's First Lady while dating billionaire Teddy Forstmann.
But Fergie said it was the first she had heard of it. She joked: "I think he's writing another chapter about me this week and it's great.
"I'm really looking forward to reading it."
Burrell also claims that Diana, killed in a Paris car crash in 1997, dug a grave to bury friend Rosa Monckton's stillborn baby in Kensington Palace.
He said it was an "act of compassion" by the Princess
Diana, Princess of Wales is and always will be The People's Princess.
