Mr Hussein chronicled Diana’s journey from a shy bride in the early 1980s to the confident icon she became before her tragic death in Paris in 1997. His work is currently appearing in a “walk-through documentary” currently open in both Chicago and Los Angeles and is expected to visit New York next
Mr Hussein told PEOPLE that Diana approached him on a flight in the mid 1990s.
He said: “All the lights were dimmed on the flight, and she came and whispered, ‘Can I have a chat?
“She knew that I was married to an English girl, Caroline.
“She wanted to know about Islam. She was asking about being married when one person is Muslim and another is Protestant.
“She was interested because of what she was going through with [her then-boyfriend] Dr. Hasnat Khan. She didn’t mention him, but she assumed I knew it.
“I think she was wondering how the family would react to him and things like that.”
After separating from her husband Prince Charles, Diana embarked on a relationship with Pakistani surgeon and cardiologist Hasnat Khan.
Royal Biographer Judy Wade previously told PEOPLE that Diana had an idealistic view of the relationship.
She said: “She had wanted to marry him.
“She had this vision that together they could bridge east and west, crossing creeds and continents.
“They could save lives and make it a better world.”
However, Khan was concerned about the intense media scrutiny of their relationship.
