On the fateful night of August 31, 1997, the world was shocked to learn of the tragic death of Princess Diana in a car crash in Paris. Among the victims of the crash was her bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones.

Rees-Jones had been hired as Princess Diana’s bodyguard in 1995, and had been with her for two years at the time of the crash. He was in the back seat of the car, along with Diana and her companion, Dodi Fayed. The driver of the car, Henri Paul, was also killed in the crash.

Rees-Jones was the only survivor of the crash, but he suffered serious injuries. He had a fractured skull, a broken jaw, and a broken right arm. He was taken to a nearby hospital and placed in an induced coma for 10 days. He eventually recovered from his injuries, but he was left with permanent scarring and memory loss.

Rees-Jones later wrote a book about his experience, The Bodyguard’s Story: Diana, the Crash, and the Sole Survivor. In the book, he describes the events leading up to the crash, his recovery, and his thoughts on the tragedy.

Rees-Jones is now retired from his bodyguard duties, but he still works as a security consultant. He is also a patron of the charity, The Diana Award, which was established in memory of Princess Diana.

Rees-Jones’s story is a reminder of the tragedy that befell Princess Diana and her companions that fateful night. His courage and resilience in the face of such a tragedy is an inspiration to us all.
