Princess Diana said she would "go back to Prince Charle s in a heartbeat if he wanted her" just a few weeks before her death, it has been claimed.
The Princess of Wales died in August 1997, and according to a journalist, she did not rule out getting back together even up until a month before her tragic death.
Journalist Tina Brown has made the stunning claim which suggests how complicated Princess Diana and Prince Charles' relationship was.
According to the source, Diana made the comment over dinner with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and Tina Brown, then editor of The New Yorker.
The three Britons ate at the luxurious Four Seasons Restaurant in New York, reports Express.
Ms Brown, who later wrote ‘The Diana Chronicles’, recounted the meal to the Daily Telegraph.
She said: “At the end of Diana’s life, she and Charles were on the best terms they’d been for a very long time.
“Charles got into the habit of dropping in on her at Kensington Palace and they would have tea and a sort of rueful exchange.
“They even had some laughs together.
“It was definitely calming down, the boys were older. They talked about their philanthropies. And she had accepted Camilla.
“One thing she had finally done was really understand that Camilla was the love of his life, and there was just nothing she could do about it.
“But she said to me at that lunch that she would go back to Charles in a heartbeat if he wanted her.”

Diana married Prince Charles in 1981 aged just 19.
The couple had two sons, Princes William and Harry, born in 1982 and 1984 respectively.
However the relationship was turbulent and rocked by accusations of infidelities at both ends.
Charles remained close to Camilla Parker Bowles and Diana would later tell an interviewer “there were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded”.
In 1996 the couple divorced causing a global media sensation.
Ms Brown claimed Diana had admitted to being lonely after the divorce.
She said: “Diana was desperately lonely.

“She still wished that her marriage could have survived.
“She didn’t say, ‘I’m so happy to be divorced’, she said, ‘I think we would have made a great team’.”
According to Ms Brown Diana had been planning to continue her work as a philanthropist.
Ms Brown exclaimed: “She was a woman very much on the cusp of trying to reinvent herself in a serious way. People change.
“She was a child when she got married but at this point she knew what she wanted.
“What she realised was, with her celebrity she could actually be a seriously impactful person.”
