A CALIFORNIAN grandmother has claimed she's Princess Diana's long-lost aunt - and wants to dig up one of Prince Harry's relatives to prove it. Barmy Ann Ukrainetz, 75, says she is the illegitimate daughter of Maurice Roche - Diana's granddad. The gran-of-seven grew up thinking she was the child of timber foreman Charles Rudderforth - but says she discovered the 'truth' in 1999. She claimed to have found a series of love notes between Evelyn and Maurice tucked inside an old music programme. One note - purportedly from Maurice, 4th Baron Fermoy - says: "I am so sorry the birth of our Ann caused you so much pain. I feel it too. "I love you so very much. Don't worry, my Rose, I will take care of you always." Now Ann - born near Sandringham Castle, Norfolk, in 1943 - wants to dig up the corpse of Maurice's brother Francis - so she can do a DNA test. She told MailOnline: "Francis is buried in New York so it would be easier for him to be exhumed and his DNA taken to see if there's a match. … [Read more...] about US gran, 75, claims she’s Princess Diana’s secret aunt and related to Harry and Wills after finding letter about ‘affair’

She was San Francisco’s district attorney at the time, and he was her personal driver. But she was clearly destined for bigger things and when Harris became California’s attorney general, she appointed Wallace to a top Justice Department position, director of the Division of Law Enforcement. Wallace not only managed the state’s corps of criminal investigators, but also Harris’ personal security team and often was at her side during public appearances. Harris’ political career continued on an upward trajectory. Two years ago, she easily captured a U.S. Senate seat and Wallace once again followed her, becoming one of her senior advisers and obviously helping prepare her for a potential presidential bid in 2020. The ex-cop’s political career ended abruptly last week … [Read more...] about Walters: Will harassment case impact Sen. Kamala Harris’ political future?
