Diana on cell phone?

I saw that report, too - but can't imagine how she could be on the cell phone, as fast as they were going in the car. I also saw where they're still trying to "prove" she was pregnant, even though it's already been proven she wasn't.

The truth behind Diana’s diamonds

King Fahd bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, who died last week, aged 84, was on the whole a kindly man but he once got me into terrible trouble.

This was when the “Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques”, as His Majesty preferred to be called, gave a lot of jewellery to Princess Diana, who was paying an official visit to the kingdom — and I had accompanied her and Prince Charles as part of the press party.

Warning: abuse of chocolate can lead to jail

Diana's astrologist and friend Penny Thornton has been arrested by the police in Surrey for selling cannabis hidden in chocolate bars.
She will be judged on the 5th of September.

Is that a funny new? You tell me, I'm really lost .

I've known Penny for many years personally and I will vouch that she's a very solid person - this is a ridiculous charge against her! She's a wonderful wife and mother...and was a dear friend of Diana's in addition to being her astrologer. BUT: she was always definitely in Diana's corner and knew lots of secrets about Diana. She's never been fond of Charles or the marriage...and I wonder if "someone" is trying to find out secrets or make things miserable for her because of her preference of Diana over Charles?

What do you mean? That this story is untrue or that is it true but that she is victim of a plot?

Yes to both questions

I mean that the charge is untrue and that it may be a "plot", in the sense that someone somewhere is just out to give Diana's supporters a bad time. Penny only rented a post office box in the same place as some people who also rented a post office box and those people may (or may not) be involved in drugs. But it doesn't make Penny a drug dealer. Guess it does pay to be careful with whom you associate! But renting a post office box? That seems innocent enough!

Yes, you may know her, and she may be a "solid" woman, but to suggest that one of Diana's astrologers is a victim of a "plot" (the next question being "by whom?"), eight years after Diana's death, is really stretching credibility.

On another note, one British Tabloid (can't remember which one) ran on its cover yet another story about Diana's supposed pregnancy.
Apparently, detectives in charge of the Diana's file are considering taking Diana's body out of her grave in order to perform an autopsy. There are few specialists in the USA who can perform an autopsy on embalmed bodies, so that would put a definitive end to rumors of pregnancy.
I just read the cover so I don't know more (and it was a tabloid anyway).

Nothing is ever going to put a definitive end to rumours like that, unfortunately. The surgeons at the hospital in Paris already said that she wasn't pregnant, but that hasn't stopped rumours from people like Fayed who want to believe she was murdered because she was pregnant.

Well the thing with what French surgeons said is that since they did not perform an autopsy, how can they know? She was not tested for pregnancy (normal since it's not the standard procedure to check is car crash victims are pregnant or not).
I personally do believe she wasn't (and even if she was, so what?) but the rumors won't ever stop IMO.

There was an autopsy, though performed in London. The coroner examined her uterus and found her to not to be pregnant.

Hum? Weird. now it's London doctors who says she wasn't? I thought it was the Parisian ones. I have to say I am not familiar with the case (as I don't really care if she wasn't or not) but I read somewhere that she was embalmed few hours after the crash as the British embassy clearly ordered that, and thus no proper autopsy could have took place.
What's the real story so?

Translation of the Article Posted by Letiziafan

Here is a translation of the article that Letiziafan has posted about Diana:
http://www.abc.com.py/articulos.php...d=199617&sec=12

Diana's Body Will Be Exhumed

Scotland Yard plans to exhume the embalmed body of Princess Diana of Wales as part of the police investigation to determine if her death was due to a car accident on August 31, 1997 in Paris.

According to revelations by the Sunday Express, British detectives that are investigating the death met with American experts on embalmed bodies in cooperation with Diana' case.

The body of the Princess of Wales was embalmed by orders of the British Embassy only a few hours after her death in the car accident of August 31, 1997, which caused the deaths of Dodi Al-Fayed, and driver Henri Paul.

According to the Sunday Express, the decision to embalm Diana's body caused the immediate contamination of any forensic evidence in the body, such as whether the Princess was pregnant.

According to the report, The British Police were considering the possibility of exhuming the body of Princess Diana from the Spencer estate of Althorp in the north of England.

That was the article I was talking about.
Tiarapin, can you confirm Mapple's affirmation that there was an autopsy made in London?

I was just translating so more people could read and understand the articles posted in either Spanish or French.


I cannot confirm or deny an autopsy for Diana, I am not part of the "Grey Men" retinue!:p
