According to the Guardian, “the princess was visiting Joe Toffolo, the husband of her friend Oonagh, who was having triple bypass surgery at the Royal Brompton hospital supervised by Khan. After the visit, Diana returned to the hospital almost every day for three weeks to pursue Khan and a romance eventually began. Although it was Diana’s most serious relationship since her separation from Prince Charles three years earlier, the romance was kept secret.”

“Diana left messages for Khan at the Brompton using the alias Dr. Armani and they met in unusual places to avoid the media. On one occasion Diana wore a black wig to slip into Ronnie Scott’s, the Soho jazz club, while on another occasion Khan hid in the boot of a car to enter Kensington Palace and visit the princess, with the help of Diana’s butler, Paul Burrell,” it added.


When asked whether Diana had wanted to marry Khan, Burrell in 2003 told ABC interviewer Barbara Walters: “She wanted desperately to, yes.”
