Ten Strange Facts of Princess Diana’s Death
8. The Mystery That Was Henri Paul
Driver Henri Paul was very much blamed for the accident following the crash, mainly due to accusations that he was intoxicated while behind the wheel.
However, during the “Diana Inquiry,” as it was labeled by the British media, one medical expert after another cast their serious doubts on both the blood tests that were conducted to establish that Paul was drunk and on his postmortem, which they claimed had over 50 basic errors.
Paul was also found to have been working for both French and British intelligence, and the mystery surrounding him only deepened. Several large payments were made into his account in the months leading up to that evening in Paris.
None of these payments were investigated by the inquiry, something which led many who believe there was a cover-up of sorts in place.
