The British author, Lady Collin Campbell, spoke of a famous incident in which Diana drove her lover into the Kensington Palace inside her car trunk. One time he was found escorted by Diana, hiding behind a semi-naked tree. So much so that she told her friend, the widow of a diplomat, that she "dreamed of living in Italy with handsome Huir."
However, the art dealer, a father of three, did not risk leaving his wife, the heir of French oil, Diane de Waldner, away from the princess, who had then discovered she was pregnant and had an abortion.
Oliver Huir meets at his home in France at the age of 73 years after a fight with cancer.
