Interesting post.. I went to London back in 1999. One fellow who resides there ( he was our ''tour '' guide, a relative of my brother in law) told me that she was alive at the hospital. She was pregnent with Dodi Al Fayed's kid. To save British embarassement with a former Royal and a realtionship with a ''muslim'' they had to kill her.

Re the car, yes these cars are built very well. I am surprised why the French did not let MB engineers look at the car. If she had no belt, i'm sure she could have lived longer. With all the conspiracy & secrets only God knows what happened.

You've gone faster than 192 km/h (=120 mph) on winding roads? That's awesome. I would hate to be the pedestrian or animal crossing the road around one of those bends you drive on.

There are documentaries about the incident that show recreations. At that speed, when your car gets out of shape, you've barely had time to react before you've already hit the pillar.

whatever he was drinking, he messed up so now we have a dead princess & a lot of conspiracy theories. I still believe that the doctors killed her & all this was planned. The Royals seemed like it was another rainy day

It was a 2nd tier car used at the last minute by the L'Etoile limousine service as a decoy vehicle with which they hoped to elude all the parapazzis on their motorcycles..

It was a rebuilt wreck with a salvage title on it.

there are a huge number of variables in any car crash; the physics of these dynamics - misunderstood by those who can't understand or accept that a crash is a sequence of events gone wrong - simply encourage conspiracy theories and fuels cover up suggestions.

Let's not focus on why the car crashed. Let's not focus on whether that S-Class was a 'rebuilt wreck' (and what does that mean, anyway?); instead, let's focus on the one thing that may have changed the outcome. In a crash that was survivable for rear-seat passengers, let's ask why Diana - someone who always wore a seatbelt - chose not to that night. Any other questions relating to what/who caused this crash, is just the babble of background noise, a distraction from the bigger question of why on earth she didn't - or couldn't?...- buckle up. Once you've established that as the starting point, you might be able to work your way back to who or what caused this crash...

Don't forget, the driver, Henri Paul, was drunk. So a combination of excessive speed, alcohol intoxication, and the failure to wear safety belts created a disaster just waiting to happen.

Bollocks...........More like a combination of Diana preggers with Muslim child plus Dodi's dad trying to get a British passport for years.
