Almost a quarter century has passed since the tragic deaths of Princess Diana, Dodi Fayed and Henri Paul in the Paris car accident. Princess Diana was a major figure, a style icon, and she transformed the public role of the British royal family, and her death broke the hearts of millions.
Due to the importance of Princess Diana, people have been searching for car accident information for years. While the official story has the most evidence behind it and has been accepted by the majority of people, many people still don’t know the details and have questions.
On top of that, there are a lot of conspiracy theories. But what really happened to Princess Diana that night?
What to know about Princess Diana’s accident
In 1997, Princess Diana stepped away from the royal family after officially divorcing Prince Charles and dating Egyptian filmmaker Dodi Fayed. On the night of the accident, they were together in Paris.
Due to his fame and lack of accountability to the tabloid press, he was harassed by the paparazzi, and therefore wanted a way out of the hotel without being chased. The plan was to send out a fake vehicle and later drop it in a different car.
However, somehow the paparazzi found out and in search of one last photo of Diana, they followed the Princess of Wales and Fayed as well as driver Henry Paul and bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones in a car chase.
The chase turned into a dangerous car chase, and after midnight, entering a tunnel at over 100 kilometers per hour, Paul collided with a pole and exited, killing Fayed and Diana, and seriously injured Rees. Jones.
Princess Diana’s Injuries and Tragic Death
The scene of Princess Diana’s death and injuries from the accident were serious. According to the parade, Diana was hurt, her arm was broken, and she had a wound on her thigh. He also suffered severe chest wounds, which displaced his heart and ruptured his pulmonary vein, which carries blood from the lungs to the heart.
Although emergency services arrived quickly, and she was still alive when she arrived at the hospital, and despite several hours of surgery, Diana, unfortunately, died from her injuries.
A major factor that likely contributed to the severity of the injuries and the three deaths was that no one was wearing a seatbelt. Many experts believe that, if all four passengers had been wearing seatbelts, the injuries would have been mild and the lives of all four could have been saved.
Conspiracy theories surrounding the death of the Princess of Wales
Behind every major death there are conspiracy theories, and Princess Diana is no exception. After all, the royal family has its secrets, and Diana certainly ruffled feathers in her tragically short life. Some wonder whether Paul was actually drunk, although the tests were consistent with his medical history.
Some think that MI6 somehow set up conditions that could lead to a car accident, although the leading proponent of this theory refuted their claim.
Dodi Fayed’s father, Mohamed al-Fayed, presented the idea that the royal family was opposed to Diana’s idea of marrying an Egyptian Muslim man, and that Diana could become pregnant. While racism of the royal family has surfaced in recent years, there is no evidence of a murder conspiracy, and medical examiners found no indication that Diana was pregnant.
Although most conspiracy theories have little or no evidence, Diana’s death, and the deaths of all those present, was certainly a tragedy, and it is important that those responsible are held accountable.
