If Dodi Al Fayed’s butler is to be believed, his late employer was planning to propose to Princess Diana on the fateful night of 1997 when they were killed in a car accident in the city of love, Paris.

Rebe Delorm claims that Dodi had asked him to keep a bottle of champagne chilled for the occasion as he was to propose to Diana.

"(Dodi) was sweeping Diana off her feet across Europe. Theirs was a love for the ages. They would still be married today if they had lived," Contactmusic quoted Delorm, as saying.

He also slammed Paul Burrell, the former butler of the late Princess of Wales, for his claims that Diana saw her relationship with Fayed as nothing more than a fling.

"Paul Burrell is a liar. He was not in the picture for Diana's future. Diana planned major changes in her life, and Burrell was not a part of that," he said.
