Did Diana Know Her Killer?
The road to Princess Diana's death in a 1997 car crash may have begun long before she even got into that Mercades. Sources say that the real cause of the crash was actually the Royal Family and that the driver, Henri Paul, could have been drugged, and that bright flashing lights were used to impair the driver's vision of the dangerous, paparazzi-filled streets. Then came what could be incontrovertible proof of a plot: a rumored letter, written by Diana to her butler, Paul Burrell, claiming that the Royal Family saw her as an "inconvenient woman" and that they were planning some sort of car accident, which would pave the way for Charles to marry again. Burrell admitted to copying passages from Diana's private correspondence but denied secretly holding onto the note, according to The Daily Mail. Though an inquest into Di's death offered no definitive proof of foul play, Burrell's note hangs in British minds.
