TALK OF THE TOWN: Not quite so natty now: Heart surgeon Hasnat Khan – who had a discreet two-year fling with Princess Diana – is spotted putting out the bins at his Essex home
He was once described as Mr Wonderful by Princess Diana – who also gave him the nickname ‘Natty’.
But heart surgeon Hasnat Khan seems to cut a less dashing figure these days.
The couple had a discreet two-year fling – during which Diana met his family and considered converting to Islam – that ended in the summer of 1997.
Dishevelled: Hasnat Khan outside his home last week. The 62-year-old, who now does humanitarian work in Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia and Pakistan, was pictured putting out the bins

The 62-year-old now does humanitarian work in Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia and Pakistan.
My picture shows him at his Essex home putting out the bins – but to be fair he did reappear later in jeans and a smart jacket.
Much more natty!
I wonder if the endless repeats of Only Fools And Horses are still paying off for its stars.
I only ask because David ‘Del Boy’ Jason’s company paid £258,000 in corporation tax last year – by my maths that means the 80-year-old earned in the region of £1.3million.
And that doesn’t even include dosh from his book A Del Of A Life, which topped the charts last month. Lovely jubbly!
