A surprise, or not?

It's interesting in the way it emerged, via an unrelated SAS case. Not sure what to believe but I am watching with interest.

Likewise.

I knew at the time it was a conspiracy. She wasn't supposed to marry an Arab, they made sure of it.

Another book coming out soon I fear! More money to be made from the gullible...............

D'you honestly think any organisation that would sanction the killing of a Royal wouldn't have tied up any loose ends over the past 15 or so years?

As said above, I think another book is coming out....

Only 1 book....?

I like s nice conspiracy.

I remember at the time thinking "how long until someone comes up with a conspiracy theory" and went back to sleep.

When I woke up, it had happened and I have been (periodically) plagued by them ever since.angry

The conspiracy theories around this are such nonsense. If anyone powerful wanted to kill her, there were so many easy ways of doing it. There is no way they would choose to do it in a foreign country where they could not control the police and the media, in front of a group of paparazzi, and relying on a car crash which she could easily have survived if she had worn a seat belt.

I agree any number of parties might have wanted Diana dead, and there might even have been plans in place to carry it out. But it is just too far fetched to believe that anyone coukd have engineered the accident which killed her.

MasterOfTheYoniverse Sun 25-Aug-13 17:40:29

it wasn't an arab she wanted to marry but a british/pakistani surgeon. Muslim you mean? hmm
Thing is he had absolutely no intention of marrying her…..sad they are making a movie about it now. whats the point?

With hindsight, its disgusting to think what kind of heartache her children have gone through at the time of her death.
The rumors of her pregnancy, the maelstrom created by Al Fayed. Its to the Royals credit really that they let all those conspiracy theories fly by to protect the privacy of the real story.

It was the florists. They did it - hired assassins so they would make a small bloody fortune when crazy people travelled to London laden with flowers to put outside buck palace

BMW6 Sun 25-Aug-13 18:32:09

I wonder if many of those who took flowers to Kensington Palace etc now look back on it and feel a little embarrased at the mass hysteria that they had got caught up in?

I remember feeling choked when I heard she'd died. Difficult to describe why, I guess you had to be there in those times watching the course her life took. If I'd lived in London I would have taken flowers I'm sure. I can't think of any famous person now I would react that way over.

I went to London the Friday after her death. I had never known London so quite. It was very weird

ChoudeBruxelles Mon 26-Aug-13 16:07:45

See it was the floristswink

KatyDidItAgain Wed 28-Aug-13 17:09:25

I lived and worked in London at the time, it was indeed strange.

mateysmum Wed 28-Aug-13 17:24:09

She died because she was in a car being driven too fast by a man intoxicated by drink and drugs. Oh and she wasn't wearing a seat belt. End of... Strange that the only survivor of the crash was the only one wearing a seat belt.

Her death was tragic, but the public reaction was ludicrous. To pillory the Queen for staying at Balmoral to protect her poor grandchildren rather than parading them and herself on the streets to console the public was very unkind.

ben I was a student drinking with my friends outside one of the pubs somewhere in the Fleet Street area (don't remember exactly which one). Someone came up to me and told me off big time for laughing. I was shocked! (Still is)

Hulababy Fri 30-Aug-13 09:43:51

I don't understand the conspiracy argument. Surely it's all straight forward. She got in a car. The driver was drunk. She didn't wear a seat belt. The car drove too fast. It crashed. Those not wearing a seat belt were killed.

That's very formal TSC - William and Henry!

Ooh I'm a conspiracy theorist. Maybe it will come out in years to come that she was murdered, I don't think it will be any time soon though.

clam Fri 30-Aug-13 09:57:02

I wonder if William would be quite so cosy with the Middletons had Diane still been around.
I suspect they would have been matey-matey initially, and then Diana would have got the hump about something and frozen them out. William would then have had to play a difficult go-between role.

It was all very convenient though wasn't it?

What a ridiculous thing to say. Convenient for who?? Think before you post such an asinine remark.
