Did the Duke of Edinburgh order Lady Diana’s Death Warrant?
- New evidence supports murder conspiracy
- Diana was alive hours before she died
- Is the Duke of Edinburgh behind the assassination?
British Police are investigating startling new claims that Princess Diana and Dodi Al Fayed were murdered by a member of the British military.
Scotland Yard has confirmed reports it is investigating new information and “assessing its relevance and credibility”.
The Press Association reported it was understood the allegation was made by the former parents-in-law of a former soldier based on information that the ex-soldier talked about in the past, according to a military source.
It is believed the information was passed to the Metropolitan Police through the Royal Military Police, the PA report said.
A statement issued by Scotland Yard said: “The Metropolitan Police Service is scoping information that has recently been received in relation to the deaths and assessing its relevance and credibility.
“The assessment will be carried out by officers from the specialist crime and operations command.
“This is not a re-investigation and does not come under Operation Paget.”
Police said they are not prepared to discuss the matter further, while a royal spokeswoman said there will be no comment on the matter from Prince William or Prince Harry, or from Clarence House.
Diana, Dodi and chauffeur Henri Paul died after their Mercedes crashed in a tunnel in Paris, which left the Ritz Hotel on the morning of August 31, 1997.
The hearing into the deaths of Diana and Dodi lasted more than 90 days with evidence from around 250 witnesses.
The inquests concluded on April 7, 2008, with a jury returning a verdict that the “People’s Princess” and her boyfriend were unlawfully killed.
However, despite multiple investigations and the extensive resources of Scotland Yard, the perpetrators of the assassination were never identified or brought to justice.
Many believe that Dodi and Diana were murdered as it would have been unthinkable that a member of the royal family would marry a Muslim.
Theories that senior members of the royal family including the Duke of Edinburgh were involved in the assassination have persisted for years.
