Father Of Driver Who Was Killed With Diana Reveals Truth About Their Deaths

As the 20th anniversary of her death is rapidly approaching, there have been a ton of remembrances and stories offered up on the late Princess Diana. On August 31, 1997, Diana was tragically killed in a high-speed crash in the Alma Tunnel in Paris. Her limo driver, Henri Paul, was said to be attempting to avoid the paparazzi that was always attempting to get a glimpse of Diana. Her death spawned a cottage industry of conspiracy theories, as there’s a school of thought that her death was no accident.

Flashing back to July 29, 1981 for a moment, the fairytale marriage of Diana to Prince Charles captivated the world. The pair became instant celebrities, and there was a ton of worldwide interest in the newlyweds as the years went on. They would welcome two children to the world, Prince William and Prince Harry, and then things fell apart. The couple would split up, and their divorce was finalized on August 28, 1996.

The dissolution of the marriage was stunning on a number of fronts, and the fact that they were members of the Royal Family was at the top of the list. Add in the rumors of affairs on both sides, and this amounted to a pretty juicy scandal that reflected poorly on the Royal Family. It didn’t get any better once Diana started living the single life and was photographed with other beaus.

As the Daily Mail shares, the father of Diana’s driver, 85-year-old Jean Paul, is in the camp of those that believe her death was no accident. He would like to find out some answers, but he knows that’s unlikely to happen before he leaves the world himself.

“Diana was killed and my son was killed. I believe they were both murdered. My son was simply ­collateral damage of a plot to kill Diana and they killed him as well,” he said. “I am 100% sure he [Henri] was not involved in this plot. He was too honourable and too honest.”

Losing a child is an incomprehensible occurrence that no parent should have to deal with, and it’s not too hard to imagine the trauma that the elderly dad has been through. In this case, it’s magnified even further due to the fact that his son lost his life in such a high-profile manner.

“I have no real hope to know what really happened. Perhaps it will be known in 30 or 50 years. But I would really like to know before I die. But I don't think it will happen,” he continued. “On that day there were over 20 autopsies that took place and it was easy for the authorities to switch blood samples to show alcohol was present in the sample they said was Henri's. That is what I believe happened.”

No parent should ever feel like their child was mere ‘collateral damage,’ so we’ll hold out hope that he’ll get the answer he’s seeking. However, we’ll also echo his sentiment that it’s unlikely to happen.
