LONDON (CNN) -- Shortly before she died last Sunday, Princess Diana made a final request, but the words she spoke have not been made public. The disclosure on Friday came as a surveillance video was released showing Diana and boyfriend Dodi Fayed at the Ritz Hotel in Paris the evening of their deaths.

The developments were announced by a spokesman for Fayed's father, Mohamed Al Fayed, at a London news conference.

The spokesman, Michael Cole, said Al Fayed, who owns the Ritz Hotel, went to Paris after the accident, and was approached by an unidentified person "who helped the princess during her final hours."

"That person vouchsafed to Mr. Fayed the princess' final words and her requests. And yesterday (Thursday) those requests were conveyed to the appropriate person at a private meeting (in London)," Cole said.

(More details coming soon).
