Diana predicted her death

From today's papers (as published in 'The Wrap', a payed, registered sde of the "Guardian"):


The death of Princess Diana continues to exert a horrifying fascination for the tabloids. A rather overexcited Mirror follows up yesterday's letter from Diana - which alleged that someone, whose name has been blanked out, was plotting her death in a car crash - with a demand for an inquest. "Don't give us this silence," the paper implores, claiming that "even those who dismissed [the] conspiracy theorists now fear there may be something more to it".

Meanwhile, Paul Burrell continues his "extraordinary revelations" in what the Mirror depressingly calls the "book of the century". "She was lying there in the black dress and shoes the ambassador's wife had given to me, her hair had been beautifully blow-dried and, in her hand, she held Mother Teresa's ivory rosary beads," runs a notably tasteless headline.

The Sun is equally excited by the extraordinary revelations, and claims Prince Philip is the man whom Diana feared "wanted her dead" - a charge the Mirror takes care to avoid. The Times optimistically hopes that an inquest would "lay the myth to rest". "These seem prescient words - but was the Princess reasonably alarmed or irrationally paranoid when she wrote them?" the paper asks. "In truth, she was both a princess and a drama queen."

like the conspiracy theories over Marilyn Monroe and the Kennedys, the Diana thing will go on for ever! particularly where there is money to be made.

I do feel that it was very convenient though and lots of people speed - 80mph doesn't cause a crash on its own - and yes wearing a seat belt would have been sensible - when are the rich and pampered ever sensible? what about Kennedy flying in weather he wasn't trained for and killing himself and others? (can't remember which one it was but one of the young of the clan!)
