Princess Diana


Scotland Yard is reviewing new info surrounding the circumstances around Princess Diana's death.

The information reportedly contains allegations that the Princess of Wales, her boyfriend Dodi Al Fayed and their driver Henri Paul were all killed by a member of the British military, according to Sky News.

The police purportedly obtained those details from the former parents-in-law of a former soldier, according to the site.

The Metropolitan Police said in a statement that "the assessment of the new information isn't a re-investigation and won't fall under the Operation Paget—the inquiry into conspiracy theories surrounding their deaths."

A jury concluded back in 2008 that the deaths of Princess Diana and Al Fayed were an "unlawful killing, grossly negligent driving of the following vehicles and of the Mercedes."

The police are assessing the relevance and credibility of the information, and it is possible that a new investigation may open as a result of it, according to the site.

Princess Diana, Al Fayed and Paul passed away after their Mercedes Benz crashed in a Paris tunnel in August 1997.

Buckingham Palace won't be releasing a statement about the new information.
