Haunted Mansion Ownership Revelation: Paul Burrell’s Allegedly Ghost-Infested Home Linked to Queen’s Friend
In a surprising twist, it has been revealed that the country mansion, which Paul Burrell claims is haunted by the ghost of Princess Diana, was previously owned by Timothy John Edward Tollemache, the 5th Baron Tollemache, a close friend of Queen Elizabeth.
The connection adds an intriguing layer to the already mysterious claims made by Burrell.
Previous Owner’s Royal Ties
Documents from the Land Registry indicate that the grand mock Tudor mansion, currently owned by Graham Cooper (Burrell’s partner), was purchased from Baron Tollemache in 1998.
The aristocrat, an Eton-educated figure residing in Helmingham Hall, Suffolk, was not only a close friend of the Queen but also served as Lord Lieutenant of Suffolk for 11 years until 2014.
Historical Significance of the Mansion
The Tollemache family, historically the greatest landowners in 19th-century Cheshire, constructed Peckforton Castle as a Victorian stately home.
The mock Tudor house, believed to date back to the 19th century, is part of an estate that once comprised 35,000 acres.
The properties, built in the 1860s and 70s, were designed to encourage laborers to farm their plots.
Paul Burrell’s Allegations and Paranormal Investigation
Paul Burrell and his partner have claimed encounters with shadowy figures, wafts of cigarette smoke, and unexplained bumps in their allegedly haunted mansion.
They sought the assistance of paranormal ‘experts’ and featured the experiences on the show Celebrity Help! My House is Haunted on Discovery Plus.
Burrell speculates that the machine used by the ghost hunting team mentioning ‘France’ might be connected to Princess Diana’s death in a car crash in Paris.
Burrell’s Connection to Princess Diana
Paul Burrell, Diana’s former butler, describes himself as her ‘best friend’ and believes she is still reaching out to him, more than 26 years after her death.
He dreams about her regularly and, while not obsessed, carries her memory with him.
Burrell also reveals that Queen Elizabeth II believed in ghosts and would only stay in certain places if her corgis were present to sense supernatural presences.
Applauding King Charles for Health Advocacy
Paul Burrell applauds King Charles for openly discussing his prostate condition and encourages people to come forward with health concerns.
Burrell, who received an ‘all clear’ from doctors after battling prostate cancer, acknowledges that while their conditions differ, the message is clear: encouraging people to seek medical attention.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
