If ever there was an iconic death to match that of JFK, it was the tragic death of Diana, Princess of Wales. Diana died, along with boyfriend Dodi Fayed and Ritz security man Henri Paul, when their speeding Mercedez crashed into the Pont de L’Alma tunnel in Paris on 31 August 1997.
Speeding to avoid the paparazzi, the driver, Paul, had been drinking beforehand. Tragic and needless, the logical answer is, nevertheless, to accept the event as an accident.
Conspiriologists say otherwise. Rather, Diana was assassinated. One popular myth argues that the killer rode on a motorcycle in front of the car and used an anti-personnel flash gun to blind Paul, thus causing the crash. As to motive for the assassination, Diana was causing much embarrassment to western governments over her landmine campaign, or, alternatively, sections of the British establishment couldn’t bear the thought of the mother of a future king being married to a Muslim.
