article imageMohamed Al Fayed Says Diana Was Pregnant

During the inquest into Princess Diana’s death, Mohamed Al Fayed said she was pregnant. He claimed he phoned her to convey the news and she confessed that Prince Philip and Prince Charles are trying to get rid of her.
The inquest has been going on for the past four months with claims and counter-claims. This time the controversy is coming from Mohamed Al Fayed, the owner of Harrods.
Al Fayed told the courts today that Princess Diana telephoned him and informed him she was pregnant. He said she only told him the news and not anyone else.
Al Fayed has long maintained that his son Dodi Fayed and Princess Diana were murdered in a conspiracy between British and French Intelligence agencies, and the Duke of Edinburgh.
The couple died, along with driver Henri Paul, when their car crashed in Paris on August 31, 1997. He told the jury both of them were targeted to be murdered and this happened after the following conversation he had with her: "Princess Diana told me personally before and during the holiday we shared in July 1997 of her fears."
He also told the jury that his son told him on the phone that he and Diana were soon to announce their engagement.
Al Fayed believes once their relationship became public, his relationship with the Royal Family soured. He said they could not accept an Egyptian Muslim as stepfather to the future King of England, so they conspired to murder the couple.
The coroner, Lord Justice Scott Baker, who is helping Al Fayed in this case, told the jury:
"It's his belief that a decision was taken to kill both Diana and Dodi. He places Prince Philip at the heart of the conspiracy. You will have to listen carefully to the witnesses you hear to see whether there is any evidence to support this assertion."
But the autopsy findings said Diana was not pregnant.
If Al Fayed had presented recordings of the conversation he had with Diana, I imagine it could have helped his case. Unless he is able to show clear proof or evidence, I doubt the jurors can find anything contrary to the earlier findings of both the British and French investigation.
