Perhaps.... but actually, MI6 and CIA, and like operatives, do not necessarily even resort to that kind of angle. They usually just plant their own undercover agents in force. Hiring out is generally ........ well, it's too risky. After all, CIA's motto is "Trust no one" and MI6, I am sure, has a similar policy.

As you know, I agree with your statement. The letter is a run of the mill thank you note from Diana with a pair of old cufflinks thrown in to make him 'feel' special. Something I believe women from our 'class', here and in Germany have done for many years.

There are, as you say many different reliable ways to dispose of Diana, by MI5, MI6 or the CIA. Just look at Dr David Kelly's death!

(I better start think of other things the Holidays are upon us!!! We could go on and on.)
AFAIK, Diana was still having enemas and injecting diuretics to help maintain her weight. Diana approached Blair to ask for a role but I believe he hoped she would 'get over it'.

An holistic healer has said she feared for her life when she was being driven by the same man who drove Diana, Princess of Wales to her death.

Yes, CasiraghiTrio I do agree with above statement. But then my mind goes to last weeks questioning of Rosa Mockton (sp?), a close friend of Princess Diana. It came out that Rosa who made friends with Diana in 1992 has a close family relative in MI6 and that Diana did not know of that connection.

1992 was the year The House of Windsor had a lot of personal family problems and their standing with the British people went down. So could it be possible that MI6 were keeping tabs on Diana through the Rosa connection?

I don't know if it is the same everywhere concerning cab rides, but my cab ride in Milian, the driver said he was originally from New York City, we went on the sidewalk to get around and I thought that I was going to die!!! I also ride cabs in the big cities of the United States and I put my seat belt on because they drive so crazy. So to me the above relations our just typical of what to expect and not a big revelation.

Members of the services are not know to tell or involve members of their family in operations. Why would Rosa tell Diana what a relative did for a living?

Black cabs may drive fast if taking you to the airport, but I have never felt in fear of my life. They normally stick to the rule of the road, even in London or Edinburgh.

If it was a fling why make Dodi feel special?

Does anyone know from reading if Mr. Blair was not going to ask Princess Diana an ambassorship role for Great Britain?

Skydragon, I don't know if you have been over here. But some of my cab rides in New York and Chicago have been very interesting getting through traffic. And I will always remember Milan, Italy.

Maybe...... I mean, it's understood that MI6 and CIA both had files on Diana. But this is a different story than the conspiratorial murder theories. Furthermore, I'm not sure MI6 would need Rosa Monckton to penetrate Diana's inner sanctum. I'm not saying you are wrong. I mean, how can anyone know? It's impossible. It just seems to me that MI6 probably always had easier ways of spying on Diana's networks than going through Rosa Monckton.

Yeah, most NYC cabs seem to have no concept of curbs and road divisions. That's why when I'm in NYC I stick to the subways. It's cheaper anyway.

David Kelly was a Ministry of Defence employee who had talked to the press about the Iraqi WMDs and then fetched up dead; the verdict was suicide, but a lot of people think he was murdered.

Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed were so smitten with each other they had a sense of "invincibility" in the days before their death, the inquest heard.

Diana and Dodi 'were so smitten they felt invincible' | the Daily Mail

Diana's inquest makes a mockery of justice and is an affront to human dignity | the Daily Mail

Yeah, sure.... From the article:

"Many of us, I think, feel embarrassed to be presented each morning at the breakfast table with yet another rich dish of lovers' tittle-tattle and lunatic speculation.
But this is certainly no fault of newspapers - and the BBC - which are merely reporting court proceedings."

I wonder how a journalist working for the Dirty Mail is able to talk of "us" when it comes to "feel embarrassed to be presented each morning at the breakfast table with yet another rich dish of lovers' tittle-tattle and lunatic speculation."

And while it really is this time "no fault" of the media, the fact that there is the exact same amount of "lover's tittle-tattle" when it comes to William and Catherine or Harry and Chelsy, even though there is no inquest going on in their lifes, tells enough about a media culture who has to celebrate that once, only once in their life they are doing their journalistic duty on reporting the most intimate details of the inquest's hearing.

Princess Diana started her high-profile love affair with Dodi Fayed as revenge on Prince Charles for his relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles, her inquest heard yesterday.

Diana and the Prince of Wales had been legally separated since 1992, and divorced since 1996. Why would she care about Charles throwing a party for Camilla's birthday in 1997?
Lucia Flecha de Lima may well be correct, but I don't see the logic in Diana flinging herself at Dodi as a game of one-upmanship or as revenge for a birthday party.

Diana probably couldn't bare not being the centre of attention. Like many ex's she probably thought she was entitled to have what she wanted taken into consideration. If Camilla was becoming accepted, where would that leave Diana.

I also noted that Lucia said - "Diana also fantasised about being a "middle-class princess" and living an ordinary life with her previous lover, heart surgeon Hasnat Khan, the inquest was told." - by living with Hasnat, she wouldn't lose the princess title, which is another reason I doubt it was her intention to marry Dodi.

But then you're no woman....
Why would she care? I think it is really hurtful to see how fast her ex has found new happiness when she has not. Diana was very fixed on her medial image. She was IMHO competitive, too (just remember the Squidgygate-transcript). To read that Charles was happily ensconed in a relationship while she appeared to be suffering was surely not to her liking. There have been a lot of people claiming that Diana in a way was instrumental to the enormous media coverage of her relationship with Dodi on informing the media and I believe it was her competitiveness that led her to do it. She knew that she was more beautiful and had a better public image than Camilla. And she wanted the world to never forget that. IMHO, of course.

I really wonder what would have happened had Charles married Camilla while Diana was still alive. What would she have done? I don't believe for a moment she could have stood that. And to sit one day in a church as the mother of the groom on a Royal wedding while on the Royal benches HRH or even HM Camilla would be sitting - I don't think she could have stomached that thought. So, yes, IMHO she did what she could to see to it that she was domineering the media whenever Charles would dare going public with Camilla. I don't believe either that she was about to become a "friend" of Charles, but I guess using his friendliness and the fact that as a gentleman he would probably never let her down as she was the mother of his sons was reason enough for her to cultivate her relationship with the prince. He was her key back into the establishment. And she could be sure that Charles would not be annoyed if she appeared to be newly in love and focus of the media as she probably had realised that Charles
a) would be happy for her as he was happy himself
b) would be nicer towards her as he probably felt that the gap between them was going to become smaller.
So she could have both: her revenge through upstaging Camilla while at the same time getting into a better realtionship with Charles. For I sincerely doubt that Charles was able to understand the extent of her media manipulation skills - if Charles had an idea how that worked he would not have gotten into so many scrapes himself and selected other people to run his PR machinery.

While Camilla IMHO understands much more about that but I doubt she would ever have told Charles anything about it - she has been too intelligent and knowledgeable about the world to try to influence Charles against Diana after she had won. Whatever her personal feelings might have been, IMHO Camilla would never have given Charles the feeling that he was caught between two heavy stones. Her strength always was that she was different, a real friend for Charles, there for him even though she was personally involved. That's why I'm sure it was him who wanted to marry her, not her harbouring the wish to become his future queen. But that's something for another thread.

But here's the flaw: if Lucia Flecha de Lima is correct in stating that Diana was attempting to upstage Camilla (and/or her birthday party), then she is inferring that Diana was merely using Dodi as a tool to draw media attention to herself.

The delicious irony, if the above is the case, is that Mohammed Al Fayed was using Diana for his purposes, while Diana was using his son for hers. Messy, isn't it? Poor Dodi!
