At-a-glance: Diana death inquiry
BBC News outlines the key findings of the Lord Stevens inquiry into the deaths of Diana, Princess of Wales and Dodi Al Fayed, published on 14 December:
- There was no conspiracy to murder Princess Diana and Dodi Al Fayed.
- The car crash was a tragic accident.
- The Mercedes was travelling at an excessive speed.
- Any theories concerning flashing lights can be discounted as a cause of the crash.
- There was contact between the Mercedes carrying the princess and a white Fiat Uno shortly before the crash.
- It is unlikely the Fiat will ever be traced.
- None of the occupants of the Mercedes was wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.
- Princess Diana, Dodi Al Fayed and Henri Paul might have survived had they been wearing seatbelts.
- The investigation was the largest and most comprehensive survey of the crash scene.
- Two new eyewitnesses were uncovered by the inquiry.
DIANA AND DODI
- Princess Diana was not pregnant.
- Princess Diana was not engaged and did not plan to get engaged.
- A ring had been bought by Dodi Al Fayed.
- Henri Paul, the driver of the Mercedes, had alcohol levels twice the British drink-drive limit at the time of the crash.
- Police are satisfied by DNA analysis that the blood samples tested belonged to Henri Paul.
- All the evidence showed that Henri Paul was not an informant for MI6.
THE ROYAL FAMILY
- Further inquiry with members of the Royal Family would be unjustified.
- The Duke of Edinburgh was spoken to as part of the inquiries.
- There was no evidence of any link between the Duke of Edinburgh and the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6).
- There was no evidence to support claims the security services were involved in any way in Princess Diana's death.
- Several serving officers from MI5 and MI6 were interviewed and written records examined.
- The American Central Intelligence Agency told the Stevens inquiry it had no information relevant to the investigation.
- MI6 officers in Paris on the night of the crash were not aware of Diana's presence in the city.
- A claim by former MI6 agent Richard Tomlinson that a flash was used to blind Henri Paul was wrong and influenced by anger towards the Secret Intelligence Service, from which he had been dismissed.
- The princess told her legal representative Lord Mishcon in a 1995 meeting her fears that she and Camilla Parker Bowles were to be "put aside".
- A note apparently written by the princess outlines fears the Prince of Wales wanted to clear the way to marry a woman not named in the report. The woman was not Camilla, the report said.
- Prince Charles told the inquiry he did not know why his ex-wife wrote the letter and never discussed it with her.
