Lord Justice Scott Baker, the Coroner heading the Diana Inquiry, has pronounced there was no conspiracy at the end of six months of proceedings and evidence. Mohamed Al Fayed’s claims are wrong.
The Duke of Edinburgh is not a conspiratorial murderer, and MI6 did not help in a plot to kill the Princess of Wales. Her sons, William and Harry, can now get on with on with their lives, and butler Paul Burrell has been branded a liar.
Well, there’s nothing I didn’t expect there, and I agree totally with the pronouncement, but there isn’t a chance in hell of this being the end of it. Diana was more than a person – she was an icon of truly sensational and global proportions.
I’ve said it before. Tragically, culture does not allow such a person to ever rest.
