In my opinion? No apparently one of the witnesses from the inquest(I think correct me if I'm wrong and I'm thinking of something else) don't remember what day but he/she had said that Diana was trying to say something but nothing came out.

OK, so, Dodi said he would marry Diana. Does this mean that Diana would have married him? I personally do not think she would have for several reasons--William and his future role being one of them. Also, having been so embroiled in controversy for years, her life was finally beginning to settle down a little and I"m not sure she wanted to be tied down. Also, and I'm going to hear it for saying this, but all of her adult life she was known in some capacity as the Princess of Wales--it was her identity. I doubt she would have given that up, either. So, as far as I'm concerned, papers and Mr. Al-Fayed can say Dodi was going to marry Diana all they want, but the fact remains that just because Dodi said that doesn't she would have said yes.

Ya I agree and I think this is how all this came to his mind that they were murdered. If infact Dodi told him he was going to marry Diana then I understand where all of his ridiculous theories are coming from, but then again this is the same person who said Diana told him she was pregnant at the hospital when clearly everyone has stated she was unconcious.

I take back what I said I saw the fax clearly he isn't lying about this part atleast thank god.

I believe Diana might have been agitated and might have said something. But it would have been limited and very faint if she had broken ribs and a possible punctured lung (from said broken ribs). Plus, the sheer bodily shock of the intense impact would have left her limited in comprehension of the reality of the situation.

I also believe 1) some of the witness didn't speak enough fluent English, they might have not heard what they think they heard and 2) I think the crash scene might have been a scene of extremely loud noises (car horn and noises from emergency vehicles) and utter confusion, each witness may only remember bits and pieces of what may or may not have been said.

After a decade of thinking about the scenario of the possibility of Diana and Dodi marrying and moving into Julie Andrews' house in Malibu, the "theory" of them marrying would be plausible and have some grain of merit.

Dodi had been previously married to a Christian woman and would not be insistent on Diana converting to his religion. Dodi and his father offered Diana the ways and means for Diana to create a distant home base in America. (I would have thought she would have chosen an East Coast location given her social life in New York). The body language did give creedence to at least a minimum of adoration between the both of them.

Now the idea of Diana even having anything to do with the Al-Fayeds, would surely horrify the Windsors, not at the least the Queen Mother, and how that affected not only Prince Charles but the future of Prince William and the House of Windsor.

I've never believed Diana would ever marry Dodi. Summer fling - possible, but real romance or marriage - hardly.
But let's just say they were going to marry, how precisely would it affect the Windsors?
Diana would probably loose some of her popularity (as she was already doing in 1997s) for connecting with Al Fayeds (Jackie Kennedy Onnasis comes to mind too). But how would the Royal Family be affected by that? Even if William had 10 Muslin half-brothers and half-sisters, so what?
Surely the Royal Family had already discussed such posibility, when Diana was in serious relationships with Khan.

I agree with you. I think Dodi is the one who had marriage on his mind and Diana was eventually going to let him down easy after dating him awhile. She was still deeply in love with Hasnat Khan at the time of her death(she had only broken up with him six weeks before her first date with Dodi!)

According to Tina Brown, Diana's high profile romp around the Med that summer was sort of an in-your-face gesture to both Charles and Hasnat. Charles because he was throwing a big birthday party for Camilla at Highgrove-Diana reportedly cried when she found out-and of course to Hasnat because he ended the relationship. My feeling is that Diana was very fond of Dodi and very grateful for his adoration that summer, he was just what she needed at that time. But she eventually would have grown very tired of him, in my opinion.

Diana was a great admirer of Jackie Kennedy Onassis. Her brother has said she would have HATED being compared to Marilyn Monroe-it was Jackie she wanted to be like. If she had married Dodi it would no doubt have been a misguided attempt to imitate her idol, in my view.

When it comes right down to it, I find it hard to believe that Diana would have moved to Malibu or, as one rumor has it married Dodi and lived in Paris, or any country other than the UK. Anytime she wanted her sons to visit, the Queen's permission would have been needed for them to go. I think that would have grated on Diana. I think she would have resented that very much. I fully expect that in the circumstance permission would have been forthcoming ... most of the time anyway... However, I can't see Diana putting herself in a situation where she might not be allowed to have them travel to her. The alternative would be for her to visit them in the UK, which she would do anyway I'm sure; my point being that I think she would hate having it out of her own control.

Ok enough endless talking.
I think that Diana would have been in shock and just babbling or screaming in general, not that she would have been aware of Dodi's injuries. Also, having had two children even as the workout queen she was I wouldn't expect her to have a flat tummy at 36. People see what they want to see.

Agreed. Dodi had a lot of money and a lot of toys. It's attractive for a while, but not on a long term basis. The Burrell book stated that Dodi did drugs and was a controlling personality. Being controlled was the last thing Diana wanted at that time in her life.

Actually poor Dodi didn't have a dime...he was funded entirely by Mohammed. He would never have even dated the Princess if his father had not ordered him to.

In some ways, Dodi was as lost a soul as Diana was. I feel very sad for him because despite his chaotic life he sounded like a very kind, sweet human being overall.

Ya nor did I expect her to have a flat tummy and that's not in any way meant to sound negative.

I don't understand why my reply to this quote was deleted the first time around but lets try again. I think she may have attempted to speak or as Picmajik said she may have just been splurting out random things. I don't think she was fully aware of what was going on.

Because your reply was just "I agree with what you said."

From the FAQs:

What are empty posts?

Empty posts are very short replies which add no value to the thread and do not contribute to or advance the discussion. Since these posts interrupt the flow of discussion, the moderators routinely remove them.


Any post which just says "I agree" or "Great post!" without explaining why you agree or why you think the post was great is liable to be deleted; threads can drown in too many of this sort of post if we aren't careful.
