Princess Diana was so scared for her life she carried around a fridge full of spare supplies of her blood.
The tragic princess’s security team took the stocks of blood as a precaution in case they were needed if Di was ever attacked.
Her former private secretary Patrick Jephson revealed: “Particularly when we were abroad or in the developing world, we would carry a little refrigerator full of spare supplies of Diana’s blood.
“That sure took the glamour out of it.
“Each of us were tested so the doctors knew which of us could give her blood if she needed it.
“Diana was quite often under the threat of physical danger.
“A part of the job that was easy to forget and then you’d get a sharp reminder.”
Patrick was equerry and private secretary for the former Princess of Wales from 1988 to 1996 – during which period she divorced Prince Charles and was cast aside by the monarchy.
And Patrick still hasn’t forgiven the monarchy for their treatment of his ex-boss.
He said: “That is a real shame, and I think it doesn’t really reflect well on the royal family.

“She was out there flying the flag for Britain and by any measure doing a great job for the monarchy, but received very little recognition let alone thanks for it at the time.
“She was a young single mother working hard and she had no supportive network, she had no proper mentoring, the organisation was overwhelmingly masculine even though there was a woman at the top of it.

“She really had her work cut up just surviving, let alone driving as a royal performer.”
Patrick added: “I think they did underestimate her.
“It’s a real shame they didn’t realise what an asset they had.
“Princess Diana was not a natural rebel, she was a natural monarchist.
“She should have been their greatest asset, but they let that slip through their fingers.”
