The Diana theories in full
Tuesday 22 September 2009
Following the news of Valéry Giscard d'Estaing’s new book ‘La Princesse et le Président’, we take a look at 10 of the most fruity stories surrounding Princess Diana’s life and death.
You almost have to feel sorry for some of those authorities implicated in the myriad explanations offered by the online community for the untimely demise of the lady who came to be known as "the people's princess". MI6, ever the shady conspirators in the minds of the paranoid the world over, have been suggested as the possible organisers of an attack, with theories over their involvement ranging from the covert use of a flashlight to blind the driver of the Mercedes Benz carrying the Princess, to the motive of working for a Royal Family hell-bent on averting a Diana-Dodi union.
Of course, the theories don't begin and end with her death - to many Diana was a mystery, and this is reflected in the sheer number of allegations made linking her to figures as different as rugby player Will Carling and art dealer Oliver Hoare, as well as the recent theories suggesting Valéry Giscard d'Estaing's latest novel about an affair with a Princess may have an autobiographical slant to it.
But, though it may well be the case that we'll never know the truth about any of these suggestions listed here, their existence serves as a morbid reminder of the British people's obssession with Princess Diana and the agony and ecstasy of a Royal life lived very much in the spotlight.
