You can’t have perfect diagonals and one corner out of square. I’m wondering if maybe you’re getting a rocking effect while planing that makes your sides not flat, try setting an straight edge on each side to see if everything is flat. If your end grain sections are short and the long grain sections longer, it will be hard to keep the end grain flat against the stop causing rocking and a less than flat surface. I would try long side, end, end, and then the last long side, possibly clamping or screwing a stop parallel to the plane direction to keep the board from pivoting.

Good luck,
