Secrets of Diana's Butler

He called himself Princess Diana's confidant, the keeper of all her secrets.
The minute he took his oath at the inquest into the deaths of Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Al-Fayed, Burrell became the closest star-witness.

Like in any soap-opera, this episode ended on a cliffhanger. Michael Mansfield, lawyer for Dodi's father, Mohamed Al Fayed, asked Burrell to repeat for the court what he had heard. In an attempt to show that Burrell knew something significant about Dodi and Diana, Mansfield read out the last-page from his-book. It quotes a letter Diana had written.
In it, she refers to "the coming weekend" being an important one.

Then she goes on to say, "I wanted to write on paper how enormously touched I am that you share this excitement with me as well."

Mansfield's goal was to counter Burrell's earlier claims that nobody had a problem with Diana dating Dodi and Khan, both Muslims.
