The Spooky Premonition Princess Diana Reportedly Had About Her Future

Princess Diana died on August 31, 1997 at the young age of 36. At the time of the tragic accident that took her life and shocked the world, Prince William was only 15 years old, while his little brother Prince Harry was just 12. As recently as May of 2022, William has said that he still lives with the grief of having lost his mom (via ET Online). For his part, Harry has admitted to experiencing "trauma" over the loss.

While much is known about the princess' death, it may be lesser known that Diana is not the only famous person to have died at age 36. Marilyn Monroe also passing away before her 37th birthday (via The Famous People). Bob Marley also died at age 36.

Another thing the people's princess shares in common with other famous folks who died way too soon is that like Abraham Lincoln, who dreamed he would be assassinated, and Dr. Martin Luther King, who believed he would die young, she too predicted her own death in a creepily precise way (via Ranker).

Princess Diana believed Prince Charles might be having an affair

In fact, Princess Diana was so convinced she would die young that there's actually proof. Her butler, Paul Burrell, revealed his royal charge had written him a letter just months before she died in a car accident that reportedly said, "This particular phase in my life is the most dangerous — my husband is planning 'an accident' in my car, brake failure and serious head injury in order to make the path clear for him to marry Tiggy. Camilla is nothing but a decoy, so we are all being used by the man in every sense of the word."

Tiggy was a nanny Princess Diana thought Prince Charles was having an affair with according to People.

But this was not the only proof that Diana had a premonition about her untimely death according to reports. Another piece of evidence that suggests she somehow knew what would lie ahead for her has to do with her sons who are still dealing with the effects of losing their mom all these years later.

Princess Diana feared for her young sons

Prince Charles was questioned by Scotland Yard over Princess Diana's eyebrow-raising claim in her letter to the butler that basically alleges her ex-husband would have had something to do with her death (via The U.S. Sun). Clearly the note was taken seriously, but its existence is not the only proof that the beloved royal somehow believed she would die before her time.

According to Express, Princess Diana was convinced she would not survive to see her sons grow up, which of course is a prediction that turned out to be true. As such, the royal reportedly created audio tapes for Prince William and Prince Harry to listen to after she died, each of which offered up advice for the princes. A source told OK, "She told me she made the tapes for the day she wouldn't be around to help guide her boys."

The same source claimed, "As incredible as it was, Diana knew she was going to die young" and noted the philanthropic mom of two was keyed into "the spirit world and psychic events." It turns out her longtime astrologer can back up those claims.

An astrologer saw a big event in Diana's future

In addition to disclosing the letter she wrote to him, Paul Burrell has said that Diana met with an astrologer who could have convinced her that a tragedy would end her life (via Cheat Sheet).

But this is not exactly what happened according to Diana Frank, who was Princess Diana's astrologer and talked to The U.K. Sun about her last encounter with the princess in 2017. According to the astrologer, believe it or not, her famous royal client consulted with Frank up to three times daily. During their final conversation, Frank revealed, "We were looking at her chart and I said to Diana, 'Oh there's an eclipse.' Significant things happened to her when there was an eclipse — like the separation announcement from Charles and the birth of William."

Given those examples, Frank claims the upcoming eclipse seemed to indicate a happy event was ahead — but unthinkably, Diana died, an outcome that the astrologer insisted in her Sun interview she could not have seen coming. To her mind, even with what the princess may have felt in her gut about her life being cut short, her shocking passing was simply a matter of "tragic fate."
