I'm very glad this farce is coming to an end. IMO its witness list veered way off-topic. And I'm very glad the DoE wasn't called.

Burrell still puzzles me. It seems to me that, in the U.S. if he had removed property from a body it would have been tampering with evidence or theft. Under what authority could he have imagined he had the right to do this? But I feel rather sorry for him, he's emerged as a pathetic character (rather than the Princess's rock as he wished to be portrayed). And he's lost everything.

I think alot of us would agree that it would be a wonderful idea to do that. I don't want to hear him after this is over although I fear we will.

I know this is going to sound kinda insane what I'm about to ask but will the inquest website stay up long after all is decided? I'd love to save all these transcripts, I know it sounds sick but I do want them. I mean I saved Operation Pagat so I figured I should add the transcripts from the inquest as well.
Why not? It's historically interesting material, so it will be available for the public in archives anyway. Plus all things that are and have been on the web are collected anyway, so you need not fear you'll loose access to them. I agree. the transcripts really are a fascinating read!

Having read the media reports about the McCartney-divorce and what the judge said about the marriage and the relationship of "husband" and "wife" in this case, I have a feeling I understand now what the Burrell-trial was all about.

During the inquest, while they searched for the letters of the duke of Edinburgh, it turned out that Diana's divorce papers went missing and that there is a real chance that Burrell took them. Now if they were as outspoken as the McCartney one (and I hadn't know this could be the case in a UK divorce) publication of these papers would have meant back then a sensation and would probably even today cause quite a stir.

So IMHO this explains to me what "papers" the police really was looking for at Burrell's and why the trial against him collapsed: probably he passed the papers on to Charles and the queen then stepped in and stopped the trial.

Just my opinion but there is a lot of evidence from the inquest which points in that direction. Evidence brought up to give the letters from the duke more meaning than they IMHO have but which would explain a lot when we substitute "letters" with divorce papers.

Although the findings of the jury will be Diana's death will have been caused by a drunk driver with no conspiracy from the Royal Family (which I can easily accept as plausible), I will question forever the security breach of Al Fayed's security team to have allowed the disturbances by the paps at the Ritz and for someone not to override the decision to allow Henri Paul to have driven the couple at all (as per his erratic driving as witnessed by Dodi's massage therapist from California upon arrival in Paris). Something is amiss with Paul Burrell's mental state but he seems to be under duress and we haven't heard the last of him. Diana and Dodi rest in peace in paradise but I will always have a question or two in the back of my mind...but that's ok.

Well I answered my own question although I just have one more thing to say before this whole thing is over, I definitly think Mr. Fayed was the one who tipped off the papz that day.

I have been following the inquest pretty closely and have to say that I am relieved it will be soon coming to an end. Although we have seen some new pictures and evidence, I highly doubt that the verdict will be any different from previous investigations. Henri Paul will probably be the guilty one.

I hope that once the Inquest is over, people will stop going on and on with conspiracies because it is time to let it go. Sadly, the Princess of Wales will never be with us again and there is no use coming up with theory upon theory that will get Mr Al Fayed going and it upsets her children, too.

We shall never know what happened in that tunnel.

The only thing that still puzzles me a bit was what was the Repossi ring then? Since I'm assuming the Bulgari ring was the one she had told some of her friends Dodi was hinting about..I just can't imagine with what I've read see it being the Repossi ring she was referring to. I could be wrong though, It just seems kinda fast to buy her another ring unless it was something special but I just don't see it being an engagement ring but I don't know what else it could have symbolized well not that it has to but you hopefully get what I'm trying to say.

Maybe it was what some posters here have suggested: Diana was already a bit bored with Dodi and he, on his father's insistence, wanted to give her a ring or something else - remember, he selected not only rings from Repossi, but there were other items like bracelets etc. among the jewels Repossi sent over to the Ritz for Dodi's selection. And IMHO Dodi did not appear like anybody who really searched for a personal gift while his father was so interested that he had one minion tell him all about the jewels and their prices over the phone.

I have missed parts of the Diana Inquest, so has there been anything mentioned on the Cherruault burglary?

We don't seem to have any reliable proof that a Repossi ring was ever supplied to Dodi. The only people who have said Dodi picked out a ring, are those connected to Fayed or likely to benefit from a connection. Maybe, just maybe, Dodi was in Repossi picking a pair of cufflinks for himself and the ring story is one that has been encouraged to back up the suggestion that Diana was murdered because she was going to marry a muslim.

You mean, maybe, just maybe Dodi didn't like to wear Johnnie Spencer's leftovers?

That's true, I mean in the cctv footage I don't think we actually see the ring do we, I know we see them in the store looking at things but I don't think we ever clearly saw the ring and the information from the owner of Repossi is a bit confusing so I don't trust him either. Just one thing lets say Dodi never bought the ring himself that day, when did Mr. Fayed find the time to buy it just hours after learning of his sons death...I beleive it was revealed a day or so after the car crash occured. But then again this is Mo were talking about I wouldn't be surprised with anything when it comes to him.

All this would be cleared up with some type of ticket/bill of sale/some sort of documentation from the accountants of Mr. Al Fayed. But of course there was none....

Wasn't there that receipt that had been signed when the Repossi ring was bought?

We have heard very little about the receipt, perhaps it's authenticity is in doubt! With so much of the 'evidence' coming from questionable and biased accounts, the reliability of the receipt is doubtful.

Flashing lights, swarming paparazzi, a mysterious second car at the crash site, and a multi-tentacled conspiracy allegedly directed by the husband of Queen Elizabeth II - jurors have much to sort through in reaching a judgment on the deaths of Princess Diana and her lover Dodi Fayed

I too in the begining had doubted the receipt myself so who knows really. Before I doubted every little bit of evidence but after hearing Mr. Fayed's testimony I began to doubt evidence that came from his side more then from the Police. I'm just glad this will soon be over, I do want it to come out accidental but I fear the only way to shut Mr Fayed is to leave it as an open verdict but then won't it cause more controversy so I'm not sure really what's best but I know what I beleive, which is it was a simple accident.

As long as they duct tape al-Fayed's mouth shut when the inevitable verdict comes down I'll be happy

There is no evidence to prove that Prince Philip ordered the "execution" of Diana, Princess of Wales, and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed, a coroner has said.

In his summing up at the inquest into their deaths, Lord Justice Scott Baker also said there is nothing to show that MI6 was involved in the Paris car crash
