Princess Diana was beloved by the public and widely known as friendly, thoughtful and kind, but she didn't always make keeping her safe from the dangers that come with being a member of the Royal family an easy job for her staff.

As the 25th anniversary of her tragic death approaches, her former bodyguard, Ken Wharfe, opens up on the challenges of wrangling the strong-willed mother-of-two in the upcoming Reelz documentary Diana: The Ultimate Truth.

Ken recalls one terrifying day when he lost track of Diana for nearly half an hour while they were out running errands.

"I remember driving back from Ludgrove, and she said, 'Oh, um, you can park the car. I need to go shopping,'" he shares in an interview. "I said, 'no, it don't work like that'."

Instead, he opted for the safer option of parking by the Israeli Embassy, rather than near busy shops. However, according to the former bodyguard, Diana got out of the car and took off running. Twenty minutes later, Wharfe found her once she was finished shopping at Tower Records.

Concerned by her disappearance, Wharfe remembers telling her, "Look, this isn't going to work like this, because you're putting yourself in danger ... that's why I'm here."

Unfortunately, it wasn't only Diana's casual shopping trips that could have potentially put her in harm's way. Security expert Grahame Harding explains a somber 1994 meeting at Kensington Palace in which the Princess told him she was worried her home had been bugged.
