Princess Diana wrote a heartfelt letter to her bodyguard just weeks before she passed away

It shows how genuine and kind she was.

In the weeks before her passing, and on her last final holiday with her sons, Princess Diana wrote a letter to her chief bodyguard to thank him for his hard work and protection of her family, while they were on holidays in St Tropez, France.

Dated from 1997, the royal explains in her letter that she's aware his job is a difficult task and so, gives him thanks for having the utmost professionalism and care.

According to The Sun, the letter to Graham Cook, the family's bodyguard goes as follows:

"Dear Graham, William, Harry and I very much wanted to write to thank you for taking such good care of us during our stay in Saint Tropez. We realise that our presence, along with that of the media, made your job enormously difficult, and for that we apologise!

"However, we all had a magical ten days, which would not have been possible without your invaluable contribution and for that, we all send our warmest possible thanks."

The letter is then signed by Diana and her two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry who were 15 and 13-years-old at the time. This was sadly, Princess Diana's final holiday alongside her sons and one we're sure they treasure.

The letter is currently circulating in the press as it goes up for auction this month at Gilding Auction House.
