James Hewitt is famous (or should we say infamous) for apparently being Princess Diana’s former lover in the past.
He has lately hit the headlines once again. Apparently he proposes to sell a collection of personal cards and letters that the late princess had written to him. There are some letters that he received also from the young Prince William. He has quoted a whopping price of $150,000 for his invaluable collection.
However, one of Hewitt’s close friends has rubbished this story stating that he was not interested to sell his collection and just wanted to have a valuation done for them.
People got to know from this source that Hewitt had no intention of selling them as they are a symbol of personal memorabilia for him. The source also added that his friend had nothing to sell and neither would sell anything.
The owner of ‘Moments in Time’ and an autograph dealer Gary Zimet, who is based in Los Angeles has said that Hewitt who was an ex-household cavalry offer had offered to sell his letters through Zimet.
He told People that Hewitt wanted to sell about 32 greeting cards and 8 personal letters that he received from Lady Diana. In 1995, Diana had confessed that she had had an affair with Hewitt while chatting at a “Panorama” interview.
Apparently, the letters have been written in a friendly tone by the late Princess and there were nothing indecent about their content. Perhaps the letters prove that coupe were just about to begin their relationship, Zimet told PEOPLE.
The letters just go on to prove that the late Princess was quite fond of Hewitt. There is a particular letter in Hewitt’s collection that was written by Diana on December 19, 1987. It was written on stationery that had mark of Kensington Palace
In her letter, Diana thanked Hewitt for all those Christmas presents he gifted her and also for his companionship. She also encouraged the officer to approach her in case he needed anything.
But, what took the cake was when she mentioned in the letter that Hewitt was quite courageous to bear a demented lady. It was obvious that Princess Diana was referring to herself.
