    Default Jury: Driver, paparazzi to blame for Princess Diana's death

    Jury: Driver, Paparazzi to Blame for Princess Di's Death

    Originally posted Monday April 07, 2008 11:40 AM EDT

    Princess Diana Photo by: sipa The inquest into the deaths of Princess Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed found they were unlawfully killed because of the actions of their driver and the pursuing paparazzi.

    The inquest returned verdicts that the couple died because of the "unlawful, negligent driving of the Mercedes and the following vehicles."

    The jury also had a damning verdict for driver Henri Paul, who also died. They found that the accident was "caused or contributed to" by the speed and manner of driving of the Mercedes and the following vehicles, the impairment of the driver through alcohol and the fact that neither were wearing a seatbelt and that the car hit a pillar in the Paris underpass.

    The jury's decision came after more than 23 hours of deliberation. Earlier Monday, the coroner Lord Justice Scott Baker said the 11 member could return a majority verdict as long as nine of them agreed.

    The inquest into the deaths of Princess Diana and Fayed opened back in October and has lasted more than six months.

    In that time it has heard claim and counter claim about the events that led up to the couple's deaths in a tunnel in Paris on August 31, 1997.

    Friends of the princess have told how her former boyfriend, surgeon Hasnat Khan, was her real true love, while tender notes to and from Diana to both her father-in-law Prince Philip and Fayed – the son of Harrods owner Mohamed Al Fayed – were also revealed.

    It has been distressing for the princess's family and friends to hear the details of her life. Her sister Lady Sarah McCorquodale was in court to hear the verdicts. She left 25 minutes later showing a grim, stern look. She was accompanied by the private secretary for Princes William and Harry, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton.

    Khan broke his silence during the inquest to say, "I hope it settles all the questions."

    ^ Exactly. We could have told them that. No need to spend millions of pounds figuring it out.

    Well, duh. We have known who to blame for forever. Drop it and let her kids be free of this nonsense.
