PRINCESS DIANA – ROAD ACCIDENT OR MURDER?
(1 July 1961 – 31 August 1997)
Britain still has a monarchy even if it is only an institution rather than a true ruling family. At the time of writing, the current head of the family is HRH Queen Elizabeth II. Her firstborn son is Charles, Prince of Wales and the man who will one day be king (if he’s lucky). Charles had a small problem. He was a man who was never seemed to be truly at ease with women and faced the problem of finding a wife who was probably a virgin and fit to be the future Queen of England. The girl that was selected was Lady Diana Spencer – a shy nursery school teacher from a good family. It was a fairytale wedding but like most original fairy stories it had a nasty ending in the form of a very strange death. They didn’t really get on. He kept running off to his old girlfriend, Camilla. She became ever more difficult, had affairs herself and finally went rogue by defying the establishment. The monarchy feared for their future because the average person loved Diana and despised the rest of the Royals.
They had two sons, one who looks a lot like her paramour, then divorced and she started seeing the son of a prominent but controversial Muslim business man – Dodi Fayed. Hounded by paparazzi, an embarrassment to the British establishment and a living icon Diana was a woman, like Marilyn Monroe, that had the power to end a ruling family. Then, just when it was all getting extremely uncomfortable for certain people, she died in a controversial car crash in Paris. Within hours the early internet screamed two words: Conspiracy & Assassination. Fortunately, many years after her death a completely impartial inquiry was held and the Scott-Baker Inquest concluded that it was just an accident after all. Glad that’s all sorted.
