Prince Philip Blasts Burrell For Leaking Diana Notes

British royal PRINCE PHILIP has slammed DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES' butler PAUL BURRELL for publishing private letters he wrote to her during the demise of her marriage to son PRINCE CHARLES.

The husband of QUEEN ELIZABETH II has told of how "appalled" he is by Burrell's decision to make the letters public - via his new book MY DUTY - six years after Diana tragically died in a car crash in Paris, France (AUG97).

In the notes, the Prince tells Diana, 'I cannot believe that anyone in their right mind would leave you for CAMILLA PARKER BOWLES,' and asks her , 'Can you look into your heart and say that Charles' relationship with Camilla had nothing to do with your behaviour to him during your marriage?'.

A royal aide tells British tabloid THE SUN, "The book will be examined to see if there has been a breach of copyright. These were private letters written at the time between two members of the same family.

"Burrell does not have permission from Prince Philip to reproduce them in his book. It is appalling that somebody is using them simply to take money. They are not, and never were, his intellectual property to use."
