‘Shocking claims in a new royal biography claim the Queen responded to reports of Princess Diana’s car crash in Paris by saying ‘someone must have greased the brakes’.

Diana was killed in the crash in August 1997 – triggering national mourning and some criticism of the Royal Family’s unemotional reaction to the tragedy.

A new book by royal biographer Ingrid Seward claims the Queen made the remark after she initially heard news Diana had been injured in a crash.’

‘The BBC allegedly wasted £500,000 on a documentary featuring ‘dynamite’ interviews with Princess Diana – but later shelved it because it did not want to upset the monarchy, it has been claimed.

According to the director behind a controversial documentary about the Princess of Wales, the BBC went on to give a misleading account of why the programme was not broadcast.

The Corporation said at the time that Diana: Her Story, Her Words, due to be broadcast on the tenth anniversary of her death, did not sufficiently add to the story of Diana’s life.

But, in another controversial documentary being aired tonight, it is claimed the BBC stopped its broadcast amid fears it would upset the Royal Family close to Prince’s Charles 60th birthday.’

‘ all the rumours that dogged Princess Diana’s life, it was surely the one that hurt her the most: that James Hewitt – not Prince Charles – was the father of her second child.

Now that painful insinuation has been reignited after Hewitt gave his backing to a controversial new West End play suggesting that he could indeed be Prince Harry’s father.

The Mail on Sunday can reveal the former cavalry officer has allowed himself to be portrayed in the production Truth, Lies, Diana, which contains explosive revelations about his relationship with the Princess.’

‘One of Britain’s biggest charities, backed by Prince Harry and Angelina Jolie, has suspended its chief executive following an investigation by The Telegraph into its finances.

Guy Willoughby, who co-founded the Halo Trust, was ordered to step down as chief executive by trustees at a charity board meeting this week.

The decision to suspend Mr Willoughby was prompted by disclosures in The Telegraph that the landmine charity had used hundreds of thousands of pounds of donors’ money to pay the boarding school fees of Mr Willoughby’s children.’

‘Royal author John Morgan ­believes a squad of Special Forces soldiers disguised as press photographers had trailed her. And they were first to the stricken car after the smash in a Paris road tunnel to make sure she did not survive. But Morgan, who has written nine books about Diana, says they made one major mistake during their mission. They rode “heavy duty” bikes rather than the light scooters favoured by the Paris paparazzi at the time.’

New twist in Diana SAS mystery: Why are detectives examining this image discovered on the elusive Soldier N's laptop … of snipers from his unit aiming at cars from a bridge in the UK?

‘An SAS sniper, lying on a bridge, points his long-range rifle towards a dual-carriageway and peers into his telescopic sight, as if poised to open fire. It makes for a startling image – all the more so since the picture was taken not in a conflict zone or even a training camp but in a public area in the Welsh countryside.

What makes it more arresting is that the photograph was found on a computer belonging to the Special Forces marksman known as Soldier N, who is said to have told his wife that members of the SAS ‘arranged’ the death of Princess Diana.

The Mail on Sunday can reveal that it has now been passed to the Metropolitan Police, whose specialist crime and operations command is investigating the sensational, if improbable, assassination theory.’

‘A key UK security industry source who served in the military told the Sunday Express that GCHQ remotely switched on recorder modes right up to the moment the couple took their fatal Paris car trip.

If made public, the phone recordings could help throw light on sensational claims by former SAS serviceman ­Soldier N that Diana was murdered by an SAS assassination squad.

The bugging claim came as a separate Sunday Express investigation revealed that film footage of Diana’s last hours was “kept secret”. An exhaustive inquiry in the French cap­ital has confirmed the existence of CCTV records of the night Diana died in August 1997.’

‘An SAS soldier claimed Princess Diana was killed after a member of the elite unit shone a light in her driver’s face causing him to crash, it has been claimed.

The man, known only as Soldier N, is said to have made the astonishing allegations to his wife after taking Prince William on an advanced driving course in 2008.

Scotland Yard reportedly decided to review the historic case 16 years after Diana’s death in a Paris underpass, after interviewing the woman who insists her former husband was telling the truth.’
