i doubt that dr. khan is feeling any guilt....he doesn't need to. he did nothing wrong and from all that we know, he made it clear to her that he didn't want to be in the spotlight. he appears to have been honest with her.

i just had a thought....what if burrell DOES know something? something big? that he could make money off? why release that information at an inquest where he wouldn't make a dime off it? why not wait and shop it around to highest bidder? of course...he could have done this long ago if he did know something.

That's exactly what I think. If he knew something, he would ahve told it already. He is now trying to present himself as a person broken by his first trial, who only wants to be a "proper" citizen with no wrongdoings whiel all the while making it appear as if he is afraid as the late Diana was and who still has mysteries he dares not reveal. Just playacting to keep him in the public eye, IMho.

Ok, I just saw the interview Dr. Khan gave on CNN. My impression of him is that he is a deep thinking man intensely dedicated to his work...no surprise there. His words about Diana seemed kind and gentle. I can see why his looks and his compassion would appeal to Diana. There is a genuine saddness when he spoke of her so I would gather from this interview and the shot of him crying in sunglasses at the Abbey at her funeral he loved her very deeply. Perhaps he has been unable to speak about her because of his love for her, that was my impression of him after I heard this interview.



I admit "guilt" may be a strong word for such a dedicated man...maybe a better word would be "regret".

Oh, I have believed he knows lots and lots of big things....and have believed this from Day One! I don't think his trial would have crumbled so "neatly" had he not known what he knows....

I surmise he already sees the futility of this inquest in the regards to those important figures (paps, suspected Fiat driver, etc) have refused to cooperate in giving testimony...

Oh, so was that her 'source' then?

The looking 'fearfully' at 'someone' at the inquest was I am told rather pathetic and clearly a very poor act, that fooled nobody!

Considering October 1995 was one month prior to the dreaded Bashir interview, one could assume she was "looking" for something to justify her cause. Maybe it was one of her fortune tellers, pyschics, healers or merely something Diana devised in her troubled, paranoid mind (remember this was during the "Tiggy" time, too).

I saw another source for that information somewhere -- I'll try to remember where and provide the link. Anyway, the queen had to change her mind when Charles refused to give up Camilla.

Even though Diana said the crown should skip a generation, and that is preposterous, one has to consider the sources of influence that suggested to her this was possible. Furthermore, it does not necessarily negate all of her other worries and concerns.

Interesting idea -makes one really wonder... especially as Burrell submitted the name of a Royal and it wasn't HM, DoE or Sarah...

Inquest transcript, 15th January, afternoon excerpt

1 LORD JUSTICE SCOTT BAKER: Mr Burrell, ........................

5 Now, together with the documents, you wrote me
6 a letter which is headed "Private and confidential".
7 Now, I don't think it's appropriate for there to be
8 private correspondence between a witness and the
9 Coroner. I have looked very carefully at the letter and
10 I don't think that there is anything in it which, in the
11 event, will cause any embarrassment for me to disclose.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

I wonder if Burrell ever considered what was personal, confidential
and private when he wrote about some of Diana's more private moments which should have remained private? Dang, what a whiny weasel he is.

If it wasn't HM, DoE or Sarah, then by process of elimination it would have to be POW. Big deal -- they were bugging him too.

Wasn't Diana still married in April of 1996? There is no chance IMHO that HM would have thought that she could abdicate with Charles still married to Diana. Why should she have done so? There is no reason why she should have done so. But the thought crossed my mind that someone in Charles' circle or the RF set Diana up in order to see what would happen.

Andrew comes to mind. Maybe he didn't want to divorce Sarah but was forced somehow to do it (to test the waters for Charles?) - other than Charles he was a puppet on his mother's strings financially and Sarah had those debts. Why not stir up trouble a bit back then? And if Burrell knew about that and maybe even has proof, then that would be an incentive for the RF to protect him from the Spencers.

Why for heaven's sake should Charles tell Diana that
a) he wanted to bump off herself and Camilla
b) that he had impregnated Tiggy and that she then had an abortion.
c) that his mother wanted to abdicate and he would be king then?
d) that he would marry Tiggy after all that?

And all that while he was in the process of divorcing Diana?

Come on!

.
Charles was still legally married to Diana at the time and it is unlikely HM would have discussed abdicating at all. She has always said she will serve her people untill she dies!

How? We also have Edward, Andrew, QM, Margaret, Sophie, the Kents, the Gloucesters, Prince and Princess Michael, etc, etc. to name a few!

Yes, they asked him to change his flights so he will be available for questioning tomorrow. And boy, is he hating it.

Ok, I'm lost. I assumed this only applied to who was bugging Diana's phone and car. Not all the rest of the stuff you mentioned.
