The surprising news of his marriage to his boyfriend came after the father-of-two divorced his wife of 32 YEARS just nine months ago. Bloated and out of breath from carrying bags of soil, Burrell claimed to have been struggling financially — even though he is estimated to have earned millions thanks to his association with the Princess.

Burrell, 58, began working for Princess Diana in 1987 but after he wrote two tell all novels about her he was internationally decried. In 2001, Burrell was charged with stealing more than 300 items from the Princess worth $7 million and hiding them at his home. He was sensationally cleared at his trial a year later when the Queen remembered him telling her he was taking the items for safekeeping.
