Scotland Yard is investigating a claim that a British soldier murdered Princess Diana, according to a report from the London Telegraph. The in-laws of another soldier have reportedly made the claim to authorities who will now investigate it.
Princess Diana, her boyfriend Dodi Al Fayed and chauffeur Henri Paul were all killed Aug. 31, 1997 in a Paris tunnel during the early morning hours after a car wreck, according to the Australian News.
The latest information surfaced during the trial of Sgt. Danny Nightingale who was convicted of illegal weapons possession. The letter containing the allegations claimed Nightingale's housemate referred to only as "Soldier N" had bragged that "SAS was behind Princess Diana's death."
Soldier N was reportedlly a witness against Nightingale during his recent trial in London.
Mohamed Al Fayed, the father of Dodi Fayed, has long complained his son was killed by British military personnel at the request of the Royal Family.
Spokespersons for Prince William and Prince Harry have declined comment on the investigation into the death of their mother.
The secret diary of Princess Diana has also reportedly become available for this investigation.
A new book by Alan Power says the decision was made to kill Princess Diana "to stop her from revealing embarassing information about former husband Prince Charles."
Mohamed Fayed claims the hit was ordered to prevent Princess Di from having a Muslim son.
The official version of their death has been attributed to their automobile being pursued by paparazzi, and to reckless driving as well as failure to wear seat belts.
Although there have been several conspiracy theories over the years, this is the first time a member of the British elite Special Air Service commando unit has allegedly made such an accusation.
The letter claims a British military person boasted the accident was arranged by the SAS.
The black Mercedes 280-S struck the 13th pillar of the Pont de l'Alma road bridge near the River Seine in Paris.
Mohamad Fayed, former owner of Harrod's in London, has in the past alleged a member of the Royal Family order M-I6 to carry out the hit to prevent a union with a Muslim family.
Diana evidently had certain fears herself. Lady Di sent a letter to her butler Paul Burrell in which she said Charles is planning to have me killed in an automboile accident with the brakes going out and a head injury involved.
