Could it have been an inside job?
It was August 31st, 1997 in Paris, France. Henri Paul, acting security manager of the Hotel Ritz, was driving a 1994 Mercedes-Benz S280, with Princess Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed as the passengers. The Princess’s bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones rode in the front seat. The security team went so far as to hire a decoy vehicle to draw attention away from their car. The ride was going smoothly, but when they entered the Place de l’Alma underpass, the driver lost control and swerved head-on into a support pillar. It was estimated that he was traveling at about 65 miles-per-hour.
Henri Paul and Dodi Fayed died instantly. Diana was alive for hours after the crash; she eventually succumbed to severe internal injuries about three and a half hours later.
Despite finding that Henri Paul was, in fact, drunk while he drove and that only Trevor was wearing his seatbelt, conspiracy theorists cannot accept that this was simply an accident and have been looking for people or organizations to blame for the past twenty years.
Disapproving of Love
Some people believe that the couple was deliberately killed because the thought of a Christian English Princess and Egyptian Muslim millionaire was regrettable. Even Dodi’s father Mohamed Al Fayed claimed that the accident was planned by either the American or English government.
He told the The Mirror, “I believe in my heart 99.9% that it was not an accident. That car didn’t accidentally crash. There was a conspiracy. I will not rest until I have established exactly what happened. I have great confidence in the investigators in Paris and I believe that we will find the truth.”
Alongside the theory that governmental members didn’t want Diana with a Muslim man, people have stated that she was already pregnant with Dodi’s baby, and they couldn’t have that. Mohamed Al Fayed also believed that she was pregnant with his grandson.
Investigative reporter Chris Lafaille claimed, “It is a near certainty Diana was nine to 10 weeks pregnant at the time she died, according to papers from the Paris Public Hospitals archives.”
Princess Diana was well-loved all over the world, and she was supported in her divorce from her husband of 15 years, Prince Charles, when it was found that he was cheating.
It has been said that Prince Charles asked the British Secret Service MI6 to rub her out. A former MI6 agent did say that her death mirrored plans for the assassination of another high-profile person that he saw in 1992.
