Princess Diana died in a car accident in Paris in August 1997. At that time he was accompanied by a bodyguard, a driver and his partner Dodi Fayed.
Many people are fascinated by the stories surrounding Diana’s tragic death. Some even told that Faid was going to propose to Diana that night.
How long were Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed dating?
Fayed is a film producer and the son of Egyptian billionaire Mohamed al-Fayed. The couple started dating only a few months before this fatal accident.
Rumor has it that Diana was dating Fayed only to get back the man with whom she recently broke up with Hasnat Khan at the time. British-Pakistani heart surgeon Diana and Khan dated for 18 months. She was reportedly in love with him and wanted to marry him. However, it was said that Khan broke up with Diana because she did not receive media attention and felt that they were too culturally different.
In an inquiry into Diana’s death, Khan alleged that Diana broke up with him as he was lured by Fayed’s money. According to evening standardKhan also said that Diana started seeing Fayed while in a relationship with him. Khan tries to warn Diana that associating with Fayed will be bad for her reputation.

After the death of Fayed and Diana, a ring was found in Fayed’s apartment. The inscription on the ring was “dis-moi oi”, which means “tell me yes” in French. There was also a receipt of an engagement ring inside Fayed’s house.
The author Martin Gregory wrote in the book Diana: The Last Days that Fayed was shopping for a ring in the jeweler’s repositories. Claude Roulette, an executive at the Ritz Hotel where the couple was staying, asked Fayed when he would present the ring to Diana. Fayed said, “Maybe this evening, or tomorrow.”
Fayed’s father also claimed that the couple had called before the accident to share their intention to marry, as reported Guardian.

It is not clear whether Fayed was intended to propose. However, Lady Annabel Goldsmith, a friend of Diana’s, said that Diana did not want to marry any time during that summer.
According to To express, Goldsmith recalled asking her friend if she was “going on and running or getting married.” Diana replied, “I’ll need a wedding like a rash on my face.”
Goldsmith further explained Diana’s “jealous” remarks, “I took it to mean that she wasn’t serious about marrying Dodi. He may have had a great time with her, I’m sure, but I thought her comment that she needed a wedding like a rash means she wasn’t serious about it.”
