The 'real reason' Princess Diana was in Paris on night of car crash is revealed



A respected former royal aid has revealed the real reason Princess Diana was in Paris on night of her infamous car crash.


Diana's ex-driver and minder Colin Tebbutt, disclosed that a government backlash against Princess Diana over her landmines campaign prompted her to make the decision to delay returning to Britain before her death.


She would have been 60 this year if she were still alive.






Colin Tebbutt said anger from the Monarchy and UK government over Diana's call for land mines to be banned convinced the princess to stay in Paris with her boyfriend Dodi Fayed longer than she originally planned.


That set in motion a chain of events that resulted in her dying with Dodi and their chauffeur Henri Paul in a horrific crash in a tunnel on August 31, 1997.


The revelation by Mr Tebbutt comes as part of the Daily Mail's series investigating the princess's death.






Diana, 36, had been expected to arrive back in London on August 28, 1997, but she made an 11th hour decision to extend her trip by three days after the controversy over landmines.
