Paul Burrell first served Her Majesty the Queen as personal footman from 1976--87 when he moved to Highgrove to become butler to the Prince and Princess of Wales. It was in 1992 that he moved to Kensington Palace at the personal request of Princess Diana. Following her death, he was honoured by the Queen with the Royal Victorian Medal for his loyalty and service to Diana, Princess of Wales. He then spearheaded a fundraising campaign for her official memorial fund that raised GBP100 million. Since then, Paul has become a best-selling author and television personality. His earlier book, A Royal Duty, sold two million copies worldwide and was nominated for the Book of the Year 2003. Paul is married to Maria, and the couple live in Cheshire. They have two sons, Alexander and Nicholas.
