Two and a half billion viewers watched her funeral on television.
Ten years later, in spite of two separate official inquiries,
closely followed by an enormous press and TV coverage,
the cause of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, remains a complete mystery.
It wasn’t the paparazzi’s nor the chauffeur’s fault. It was not a matter of speed or alcohol.
It was not an “ordinary road accident” as the French investigation endeavoured to demonstrate.
Too many questions still remain unanswered.

Why did the English investigation start more than six years after the facts? Where was the Mercedes actually going? What should have happened next?
Elusive sources. Administrative mishaps. Disappearing witnesses. Belated public investigations. Controversial judicial conclusions.
Francis Gillery’s investigation started in France four years ago.
Key testimonies and hidden evidence were waiting there to be found by a thorough investigation.
