Kay said he was the last person Diana called before she died on August 27, 1997, in Paris, The Mirror reported.

"I spoke to her that night," Kay said. "[The] police said that the last call she made was to me."

Kay said he felt that Diana was "in quite a good place" as she hoped to embark on a new chapter in her life.

"She was desperate to try and make a fresh start and do something different, to explore a different kind of royalty," he said.

Kay added that Diana also "wanted to come back and see her boys."

Diana and Dodi Fayed were being driven through Paris when they were involved in a fatal car accident. Fayed and the driver were killed on impact, while Diana died due to injuries sustained during the crash at a nearby hospital.

At the time, Prince William was 15 years old, and Prince Harry was just 12. Harry, the Duke of Sussex, has been candid about his mother's death and how it impacted his life. Last month, Harry spoke about how it felt to grieve with the whole world watching.

"There were so many people of all ages that need to heal and also for one reason or another are unable to heal or may be unaware that they need to heal," Harry said during an episode of "The Me You Can't See."

"If we hold onto grief, it manifests itself and appears later in life. That is what I've learned from this process," he added.

During a May appearance in Scotland, Prince William said the country held his"saddest moments" because he learned of his mother's death while at Balmoral Castle.
