U.K. Police Announce Princess Diana’s Death an Accident

Posted on December 20, 2006 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

LONDON — Following a nearly three-year investigation, U.K. police recently announced at a London press conference that 36-year-old Princess Diana’s death in a limousine was in fact an accident.

Investigators concluded that chauffeur Henri Paul was under the influence of alcohol when he crashed the Mercedes limousine into a Pillar in the Pont de l’Alma tunnel in Paris on Aug. 31, 1997. The conclusion rules out any conspiracy to murder the princess and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed, who was also killed in the accident.

Many conspiracy theories were brought to the surface of the investigation following the incident, one of which stated the princess brought embarrassment to the royal family through her relationship with the Muslim Fayed. Another claimed the princess was pregnant and intended to announce her engagement to Fayed. Investigators say they are certain Diana was not pregnant. The investigation team assembled more than 600 exhibits, used computer technology to reconstruct the crash scene, and questioned more than 300 witnesses.
