Solving the Mystery Diana’s of Death
THE ROYAL FAMILY, THE CIA, THE INTERNATIONAL ARMS INDUSTRY? A SEARING PODCAST REVEALS NEW CLUES ABOUT WHAT ACTUALLY KILLED THE PEOPLE’S PRINCESS.
SHE was a stunning but shy teen bride of the heir to the British throne. She was unhappily married, struggling with depression, bulimia and infidelity. She was a global humanitarian. She was beloved as “the People's Princess.” And she died in 1997 at age 36, in a mysterious car accident in Paris. But was it really an accident? Diana: Case Solved, an explosive 12-part audio series from the creators of Fatal Voyage: The Mysterious Death of Natalie Wood, revisits the fiery car crash that killed the Princess of Wales and her lover, Dodi Fayed, which many believe was anything but an accident. Led by veteran police detective Colin McLaren, the audio series is a real-time investigation on the streets of Paris, where Diana was killed, which introduces new evidence used to unearth the truth. Diana’s outsider status in the royal family could have made her a target. After her lavish wedding to Prince Charles, Diana dutifully produced the requisite “heir and spare,” sons William and Harry, but never fully settled
into happiness. She became increasingly isolated, seeking comfort in love affairs as Charles continued his illicit relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles. Diana blew the lid off her marriage in a tell-all BBC interview and divorced soon after, making her persona non grata to the royal family. A font of monarchical secrets, Diana was reportedly under surveillance by the MI6 and the CIA — but the rogue princess couldn’t be stopped. She continued her AIDS activism and her public crusade against land mines, which threatened the multibilliondollar international arms business. Diana tried to begin a new life after divorce with wealthy suitor Dodi Fayed, which led to the couple’s rendezvous in Paris that fateful August night. Diana: Case Solved retraces the painful details around the crash, the subsequent investigation botched by the French police and the refusal of the British government to formally look into the accident until 2004, signaling a powerful cover-up.
The linchpin of the case, the podcast suggests, may be the white Fiat Uno said to have been involved in the crash with the black Mercedes that drove Diana to her death. New interviews for the series may help solve one of the world’s most captivating unresolved tragedies.
The Princess of Wales and her lover, Dodi Fayed, were killed in what may have been a cover-up. The Mercedes S280 transporting the couple sped through the Pont de l’Alma tunnel in Paris before slamming into a pillar. Podcast available Sept. 3 on iTunes!
