Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed died in a car crash in 1997 as they were being chased by the paparazzi. After all the stories, accusations and speculation the jury has made its decision. Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed were unlawfully killed due to the “gross negligence” and the wrecklessness of their driver and the paparazzi. Thus bringing to a conclusion one of a saddest story book Fairy Tales.
LONDON — A coroner’s jury ruled Monday that Princess Diana and boyfriend Dodi Fayed were unlawfully killed through the reckless actions of their driver and paparazzi in 1997.
The jury had been told a verdict of unlawful killing would mean they believed the reckless behavior of the driver and paparazzi amounted to manslaughter. It was the most serious verdict available to them.

In the end it is the most likely and plausible decision as what happened that fateful evening. Even Princes William and Harry ‘agree’ with Diana verdict. However, the father of Dodi Fayed refused to accept the decision. One has to believe that the only decision that Mohamed Fayed will believe is that from an Oliver Stone motion picture.
Drunk driver Henri Paul taunted paparazzi. However, let’s not be so quick to blame the driver and not hold the rabid paparazzi to blame as well. The paparazzi have been menaces for years. It is unfortunate that the pack of wolves also at blame for the deaths of Princess Di and Dodi will not be prosecuted. A paparazzi who has never learned their lesson as seen by their recent ridiculous actions in dealing with and going way over the line with Britney Spears.
Having taunted paparazzi outside the Ritz with boasts that they would not be able to keep up if they tried to follow him, he sped into the notoriously dangerous Alma tunnel at 65mph, more than twice the speed limit, where he lost control of the heavy limousine and crashed head-on into a pillar. He died instantly.
The jury decided that Mr Paul, 41, was guilty of unlawful killing because of his gross negligence in driving the car while drunk.
The BBC asks, what now after the Diana verdict?
