Billy Campbell was only 2 years old when he saw an image of Princess Diana on a card and declared, "Look! It's me when I was a princess." This according to a column that Billy's father, Australian TV personality David Campbell, wrote in an op-ed for Stellar Magazine. OK, that could just be a case of "kids say the funniest things," but David says that there is so much more to Billy's connection with Princess Diana.

Billy, who is now 4 years old, knows things about Diana's life that no one has ever told him about. He even knows that Diana died in a car crash. How he could know this when he was born 18 years after Princess Diana died defies explanation. There are even other more obscure details about her life that Billy talks about like they are just a part of what he remembers from his past life as Diana.

 

This is how it all started.

"It started when someone gave my wife Lisa, who is very British, a thank-you card with Lady Di on it. Billy pointed and said, 'Look! It’s me when I was a princess,'" recalls David.

Sure you could chalk this up to a young child's imagination, but no one had ever told him about British royalty. Still, maybe it's a coincidence, right? Maybe, but there's more.

Billy could also describe places he hadn't been to, but that Diana had been to.

"To a Scottish friend of ours, he claimed when he was Princess Diana he used to go to a castle in that kilted wonderland. He described the castle as having 'unicorns on it' and was called Balmoral," wrote David. Well, guess what? The unicorn is the national animal of Scotland and Balmoral is decorated with unicorns and Princess Diana did go there. FREAKY! Also, what kid just comes up with the name Balmoral out of the blue?

Billy also talked about a brother named John.

Billy told his parents that when he was Diana, he had a brother named John. Well, after doing some research David and Lisa found out that Diana did have a brother. "We turned pale. Diana’s infant brother John died a year before she was born," he wrote.

How would he know something like this? It's not like he was staying up to watch documentaries of Lady Di or anything.

He also referred to Prince William and Prince Harry as his sons.

When Billy was still a toddler, he would talk about his "sons" referring to Prince William and Prince Harry. He'd be talking to family and bring up his "boys" like it was no big deal.

That's a tad on the freaky side. It's like he just recognized the boys from his previous life.

The freakiest thing of all is when he talked about Diana's death.

Billy's mom showed him a photo of Diana and according to David's column, Billy said, "There's me as a princess. Then one day the sirens came and I wasn't a princess anymore." Diana died in Paris in 1997 in a car crash.

"Will Billy grow up and never remember this?" wonders David in conclusion. "Could he actually be the reincarnated essence of the People's Princess?”

So much of whether you believe this child or not has to do with your own beliefs. Some people will try to find a rational explanation, no matter what, and some will be more open to the possibility that he might just be Diana reincarnated. All we can say is that if Billy really said all the things that his father claims he said, we might just curtsy if we ever run into him. Just in case, of course.
