Whatever Happened To Trevor Rees-Jones, The Only Survivor Of Princess Diana’s Fatal Crash?


Trevor Rees-Jones suffered greatly after the crash. Per The Guardian, in 2000, he said he was experiencing “survivor’s guilt,” sharing, “I thought a while ago it would be a lot less hassle if I wasn’t around, and things could have moved on.” The same year he published a book titled “The Bodyguard’s Story: Diana, the Crash, and the Sole Survivor.” At the time, the bodyguard revealed that accusations from Dodi Fayed’s father prompted him to write the book — not monetary gain. “He [Fayed’s father] has now accused myself and Kez [Rees-Jones’ fellow bodyguard] of saying that our lack of professionalism — as is his words, not mine — our lack of professionalism contributed or caused the accident that killed his son and the princess,” Rees-Jones told Mike Wallace during a “60 Minutes” interview (via CBS News).

Interestingly, Dr. Luc Chikhani also mentioned how the media attention surrounding Trevor Rees-Jones wasn’t about his well-being at all. “No one seemed to care about this man who was wounded,” he told “Tonight.” “My aim was to take care of him, but there were people from the Secret Service and police from England and France that came to ask when they could talk to him, but no one asked how he was recovering.”
