    Wow . . . what a tragic end for such a fascinating and independent woman. Hopefully someone will be able to figure out what really happened out there in that French tunnel that night.

    We will never know the truth... isn't that the way that "they" want it? "They" meaning whomever is responsible, no matter who that is.

    Diana was always afraid of "them" . . . she even predicted that she would be killed.

    I would really have liked to see the contents of the BOX she had, where she kept all her secret ammo for the Royals. Paul Burrell got it, and thats what they were after when they searched his place and arrested him. They didn't want Indiana Jone's whip, or her dresses - they wanted that box.

    I read his book, some interesting stuff . . . not quite sure how much to believe, but it paints a portrait of a kind and generous woman in pain and stuck in a horrible situation. I want to know what that single conversation was with the queen that got him off the hook when he was on trial . . .

    I hate to agree with George Clooney (ugh) but who else has to die for these guys to lay off?

    They never will . . . they chased Tori Spelling's car in the middle of the night while she was in labor and on her way to the hospital. Can we say lower than low?

    Agreed Mrs F. There really should be better laws regarding the paps. Its frightening to watch. Did you see that video of BS going to the Quizno to use the toilet? It really was frightening.

    http://www.tmz.com/2007/09/27/in-the...-with-britney/


    As I dropped off my tour about two weeks ago, I saw Christina Aguilara leaving some club after a sound check. There were 3 SUVs with paps in them, parked over the curb, on the opposite side of the street, leaving engines running and doors open - to get a shot of Lady A leaving a club in broad daylight. As she took off, they ran to their cars and went nuts making u turns and cutting off cars to follow her. NUTS. And scary.

    "you know one thing for sure,someone has a roll of film just waiting to be developed.....I can't wait to see it."

    So are you making a statement for yourself or the world in general?

    i guess paparazzi think they have a job to do, but they take it waaay to far, in Australia we dont get too many problems with that sort of thing but we see it all the time on cable you like E! network and such.
    About Princess Di, i know most people adore her but i feel she was just too caught up in something that she couldnt handle and so as a result whammo! Look at the situation with Kate Middleton - i really worry for her and William what will happen to there lives?

    I doubt very seriously if what really happened will ever be made public.

    I agree they are ruthless and don't even take the children of celebs into consideration!

    Well if it really was an "accident", the timing was just awesome! Just think about it. They were most definitely thinking of getting married and all.
    The royal family didn't think very kindly about Dodi being muslim I guess?
    I wonder how many attempts there where at their lifes before the fatal crash?

    Good question always wondered that myself..I have never heard of any previous attempts..but you're right The Royals were not happy he was a muslim..and I doubt we'll ever really know if she was pregnant at the time of the accident

    Yes quite true. Makes you wonder how sinister the masterminds behind these clandestine operations really are?

    Personally, I think the whole thing was just a tragic accident. A drunk "limo" driver who was speeding to try and out run the photogs and ran into the wall. JMO.

    I completely agree with you Aries. I am a firm believer in conspiracy theories but I think in Diana's case it is what it appears to be. Now I'm sure the royals weren't jumping for joy when she hooked up with Dodi but I really don't believe they ordered a hit on her. Maybe if she was still married to Charles...


    Scott, thanks for the forum. A great addition to a fantastic website!!!!!!

    I watched that movie " the Queen" and she acted like a heartless bitch and seemed happy Diana was out of the picture, and even acted as though Diana's death was a burden on her.

    Wendy, I'll jump in for a sec. The Queen, the real Elizabeth II is the ONLY member of the Royal Family that has not embarassed it. She is a classy lady, that was bred to not show emotion. I really don't think it was in her programming, to show grief publicly - especially for someone like Diana. I am a fan of Diana, but she certainly knew how to stir shit.

    Nah, I'd venture a guess that you speak for millions. I'm fascinated but I'm still waiting for those rolls of film.

    Thank's Scott for shedding some light on the Queen.Do you really think she even liked Diana from the get go, or was she just accepted into the Royal family so she could reproduce Royal offspring with Fugly Chuck??

    Diana was definitely brought into the fold to produce, "an heir and a spare". But she was perfect, good looking, from a prominent family. She qualified and Diana brought up the visibility of the Royals internationally. Everyone fell in love with her.

    Scott, that's so very true, but she did the job a bit too well so they had to let her go. You see she got a bit too cocky and that cost some lives.

    She died the same night my Dad was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I remember watching MAD TV in the waiting room of the hospital and there was a scroll on the bottom of the screen announcing Princess Diana's death. I turned to my brother and asked him if that was part of the show...

    Yeah, 'cause Camilla was too old and dried up to do that for him. I bet that's why they wanted Chuck to marry Diana instead.

    Thanks to James for the link.

    I agree with you, Scott, they will be very selective about the "everything" that they will make public. At least we won't have to hear from Paul "I Was Her Rock" Burrell....or will we??

    Ahhhh, Diana...the gift that keeps on giving....

    you are all right. it's a sad end to a very beautiful woman, and no matter what the queen says, we will never know the truth.

    I agree with you Scott..I saw the Queen also and saw her in a different way..she was cold on the outside and really torn on the inside. I think she didn't know how to be any other way..The scene where she was outside the children's bedroom while Charles was giving them the news played it perfectly..she wanted so badly to go in and be the comforting Grandma but just couldn't let her defenses down.. and your right..Diana knew how to stir it up as wonderful as she seemed!

    I think Diana was there pure and simply to breed an heir and a spare - with royal protocol Charles had to marry a virgin who knew the score about the royals and she fitted the job. Diana was pretty much in the frame for this role from a teenager when she was in royal circles in Sandringham and Norfolk where she was schooled and where I am from. I think its unfortunate that Diana came about a time when PR and media came about too and the 2 kinda collided - it made her and it probably killed her.
    Dont forget this was a woman who rang journalists to tell stories to and to arrange photographers to be where she was. I am not a fan of Diana and I dont want to speak ill of the dead but I think it was a horrible horrible accident but because of who she was its been blown out of the water. People should let her rest in peace though I have a nasty feeling that this will continue to roll on for another 10 years as the inquest wont find out anything new to what we already know.
    Funny being in the UK I have chatted to people here in London and most people arent following the inquest and arent really interested - what do you guys think in your countries?
    How come your so chipper? Someone put a feather in your knickers?

    To be honest I think she fascinted us Americans but I really don't think it's being followed that closely..we have our own little "Princesses" to read about..meaning Paris Hilton ,Britney Spears,Lindsay Lohan..the list goes on and on unfortunately! LOL

    Diana was spurned by doc and used Dodi

    My Diana-phile pal says:

    No she was not preggo. And no marriage to Dodi was in the works. The entire engagement "ring" story has been dispelled repeatedly by those in the know. He was just a summer fling, done to retaliate being dumped by her real love, Dr. Hasnat Kahn.
    In Tina Brown's book, she confirms that Diana was crying at The Ritz that night because she'd been blasted by William on the phone (what a terrible last conversation to have with your mom!) and she'd turned Dodi's proposal down.
    The Al Fayed's were using her to gain acceptance in the British aristocracy (Papa's life-long goal) and Diana was using them to get back at Hasnat for breaking it off with her.

    She sure did know how to stir it. How many shows have I seen on Diana where she actually used the paparazzi? She'd tell them when/where. I heard on the news the other day that at the time of her death she was NOT pregnant, that she was actually on the pill at that time.
    I believe it was nothing more than a tragic accident, high speed, drunk/high driver, c'mon we have all peeked at the pictures taken before the crash now...look at the drivers eyes....he was stoned!!

    Lot's of you point the finger at photographers. Not siding with paparazzi photographers, but simply put they are not the root of the problem. Let's dig a little deeper.

    First, why do photographers put themselves out to great lengths to get a picture?
    They do this to sell the photo and make money.
    Who's buying the pictures?
    Bottom line: you are. You want the pictures. You buy the magazines, you visit the websites to see these pictures. So you're just as guilty as the photographers. If people didn't give a shi*t about celebrities and their private lives, these pictures would no longer be such a valuable commodity.

    well I recall reading tabloids (Globe?) on the day she died about Diana/Dodi's affair and an "insider close to Diana" said that Diana revealed she was having the best sex of her life.

    and really -- isn't that what a summer fling is all about ?

    too bad it all had to end Labor Day weekend (literally)

    Daddy Al-Fayed bought Harrod's to gain acceptance so Diana would have been literally the entire crown. His stories of their "true love" and her pregnancy are just nuts.

    Great movie . . . but remember, NONE of it was factual, it was someone's interpretation of what MIGHT have happened. And remember the thing about the stag that got shot? It was all metaphorical . . . the Queen looked at the stag that had been stalked after it was killed and felt terrible for it, mentally comparing it to Diana.
    Also remember, she was thrown unexpectedly into the throne, she was by far not first in line to take it and she was very young at the time. She just did what she thought was protocol. Not saying she was right, but I digress . . . my point is, remember the movie is not a documentary and is complete and utter fiction.
