Princess Diana gave no indication that she intended to marry Dodi Fayed and made no arrangements to announce an engagement before she died, her butler testified Monday at a coroner's inquest in London.

Paul Burrell, Diana's butler and confidant for a decade, said that if an announcement had been planned — as Fayed's father claims — he believes Diana would have put arrangements in place.

"I think she would have cleared the decks and made space, certainly in the week preceding the announcement," he told the court.
