In the early hours of August 31, 1997, the world woke to the shocking news that Diana, Princess of Wales had been killed in a car accident alongside her partner Dodi Fayed and driver Henri Paul. 16 years later, a new book claims to blow the lid off what really happened in Pont de l'Alma tunnel in the French capital.
Author Alan Power claims the SAS and M16 - British intelligence were responsible for taking out a hit on the princess after her divorce from Prince Charles.
Anti monarchist Adrian Thurston believes the new claims are credible.
The full extent of the tensions that existed between Diana, Princess of Wales and senior members of the House of Windsor only came to light after the death of the princess. One of the theories being explored is without the early death of Diana, more dirt, more sordid details from Buckingham Palace might have been exposed to the public.
The claims by Alan Power echo those emerging from the court martial of SAS sergeant Danny Nightingale who was found guilty of illegally possessing weapons and ammunition. Those close to the late princess are casting doubt on the new evidence.
A 2008 jury inquest concluded that Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed had been unlawfully killed by the actions of Henri Paul. The Metropolitan Police says it will look at any new information. There has been no official response from the British royal family.
