Princess Diana’s death will rest the way it is today, with no new probes coming anytime soon into the claims that Diana was the target and not an accident victim. Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed died on August 31, 1997 when the car they were riding in crashed and the conspiracy theories have run rampant since that day, according to ABC News on Dec. 16.
Claims that the SAS had played a role in the death of the U.K.’s much beloved princess were something that Scotland Yard has delved into. They conducted a “scoping exercise” to see if the claims coming to them about Diana’s death being a planned event were coming from credible.
The claims that started the ball rolling on this search were made by and ex-SAS member, who went by the name of Soldier N. He shared his claims with the media. Police were satisfied with their “scoping exercise” as they were given “unprecedented access” to the Special Forces records.
Princess Diana’s death will remain as it has been labeled, an accident. Opening a probe would have put some very important people on trial in the eyes of the public. The royal family would be scrutinized all over again and they've come so far since the day Diana's died in the eyes of the public.
Most of all, the two people who loved Diana the most, William and Harry, would undoubtedly suffer at some level having these deep wounds reopened. A jury found that the drivers rate of speed and the paparazzi careless pursuit were to blame for the accident, as reported back in 2008 by People.
The latest decision made by the authorities not to reopen Princess Diana's death probe might not sit well with those who believe that she wasn't killed accidentally, but the law has spoken. As far as William and Harry, they continue to stay extremely quiet on the subject of their mother's death.
