The royal butler Paul Burrell, described as Diana’s “rock”, divorced from his wife of 32 years late in 2016 as he publicly came out as gay. He already plans a wedding ceremony with his male partner Graham Cooper. Although his former wife Maria who currently lives in Florida, is not mentioned in the guest list. The couple’s two sons, Nick, 24, and Alexander, 27, have already received invitations. “Maria won’t be going to the wedding. She is very supportive of Paul, and there is no resentment or bitterness between them. There is only respect, and they still have a lot of love for each other. Maria was told she’d be welcome to attend, but I’m sure people will understand why she has chosen not to go,” the source close to the butler told reporters.
