Princess Diana

Princess Diana latest photo before the car crash

Princess Diana’s death stirred up controversy when it was featured in a documentary film. Paparazzi photograph provided all necessary photos of the late princess after dying in a car accident in Paris in 1997. Three days before the film shown to the public through the media and to some potential buyers in Cannes the controversial scene begun.

British actor ‘Keith Allen’ and backed by ‘Mohamed al-Fayed’, whose son Dodi died with Diana, directed “Unlawful Killing,” is due to be screened at the Cannes film festival.

A friend of Princess Diana expressed anger at the movie after the significant of the controversial image being aired.

The spokesman said in an email to Reuters “The picture has been published in full before, in many parts of the world.”

“The images we acquired are from an Italian magazine, which had published it already in full. In addition to that it is also widely available on the web. Only in Britain did the press choose to black out her face.

“We are not showing our film in the UK and the trailer is viewable only in the UK on the official movie website. Therefore we are not publishing anything that the rest of the world has not already seen elsewhere.”

But the princess’ friends reacted angrily; whose death marked a low point of public popularity in British monarchy.

Rosa Monckton who went with Diana on holiday a few weeks before she died said, “If this is true this is absolutely disgusting.”

“The mere fact people are making money in everything that they are doing now. Out of her death is quite frankly, words fail me,” she told Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper.

According to a film maker’s statement, “the aim of the movie is to prove the ‘2007/8 inquest’ of Diana’s death was a cover-up by the ‘establishment’ and ‘dark forces.’

Fayed believed that the couple was killed on the orders of Queen Elizabeth’s husband, Prince Philip because the royal family could not bear the idea of Diana marrying a Muslim.

However, Fayed’s conspiracy theory was totally rejected by French and British police investigation team. They have concluded that the deaths were a tragic accident caused by a speeding chauffeur who was found to be drunk.

“Screening this film in Cannes for the world’s media will be both exhilarating and terrifying for me,” Allen said.

“He went ‘undercover’ at the inquest, and he described his experience as ‘horrifying,’ he said.

“This is about a provable cover-up after the crash, and not about a conspiracy before the crash,” he added.

“This film is the inquest of the inquest” added Allen.

    I believe paparazzi people are perverts, low graded imbeciles, and everything that goes with these adjectives. Why don’t they show their own family in similar situations – dying, raped, brutalized,…?
