Boy (4) believes he’s the reincarnation of late Princess Diana

Cape Town - Children are known to say the most awkward things and at the most random times, but Australian TV personality David Campbell, was left stunned by his four-year-old son, Billy, who alleges that in his previous life he was the late Princess Diana.

David’s wife, Lisa, received a thank you card with Lady Di’s face on it, and when Billy saw it, he shared something spine chilling.

"Look! It’s me when I was a princess," was the eerie response of the then two-year-old.

The 45-year-old dad wrote in a column for The Daily Telegraph that Billy has been claiming he’s the Princess of Wales reincarnated since he was two years old.

And when he was asked if he could name other family members, he replied, "John" – the princess’ late brother that died before she was born, Mirror reported.

At first David dismissed the spooky comments as imaginative, but he later realised how serious things were becoming. Billy started to raise eyebrows when he mentioned he had two boys which he described as his sons.


Billy could also in detail describe the interior of Balmoral Castle, a landmark in Scotland where Diana stayed.

Lisa revealed to the Herald Sun that on one occasion Billy said, "There’s me as a princess. Then one day the sirens came, and I wasn’t a princess anymore," referring to a picture of Princess Diana that his mother had shown him.

While Lisa backed Billy’s accounts of Diana, David on the other hand remained sceptical but vowed to support his son and his "memories".

"I want to not believe this, but we also don’t want to shut the conversation down or make him feel as if his "memory" isn’t real," he says.
