Years after the tragic loss of Princess Diana to a car crash while fleeing the nosy paparazzi, new revelations came to light, suggesting something more ominous than an accidental crash, and a possible conspiracy.
The late Princess of Wales, Princess Diana, died in a car accident at the age of 36 within the Paris tunnels following a heated car-chase from a trail of Paparazzi.
The sudden demise of the Princess raised many unanswered questions, with the circumstances of her death remaining a mystery for years. There have been different theories about the tragedy over the years, with most pointing to a case of "wrongful killing at the hands of a drunk driver."

"DIANA: CASE SOLVED"
In a new documentary titled, "Diana: Case Solved," a former detective, Sergeant Collin McLaren, embarked on a journey to uncover what really happened on that fateful night. In his quest, he discovered an eyewitness, Robin Firestone, who alleged a possible conspiracy. She said:
"I always believed and will always believe that there had to be a reason that they did not want me to be on that stand. And I believe it to this day."
The witness's husband, Jack Firestone, was, however, given a chance to speak on the stand but claimed that the Barristers were rude, and declined to give his wife, who knew all the details, a fair hearing despite him pointing out that she was the sole witness.

DIANA'S DEATH THROUGH HER SONS' EYES
The loss of the beloved Princess was a shock to the world, but none received it harder than her then-teenage kids, Prince Williams of Cambridge, and Prince Harry of Sussex.

The Duke of Sussex admitted that his mother's death is "a wound that festers," which still plagues him to date each time he hears the clicks or flashes of cameras.

THE "GLOSSY" YEARS
A year before her death, the late Princess experienced a messy run-in with the press, which ended with her revealing pictures splashed on the front covers of magazines.
The photos also caused Diana's eldest son to place a call to her from boarding school, she recalled:
"Williams rang me from Eton. Poor boy, he's only 14. He was upset. He said some of the other boys were teasing him, saying my tits are too small."
In a memoir, "The Glossy Years," the author, Nicholas Coleridge, a Vogue Publisher, recounted the Princess's account of the phone conversation, as well as her reaction to the incident.

A RE-RUN OF HISTORY
Sixteen years later, the Duke of Sussex would experience a similar Paparazzi invasion during a France vacation with his wife, Kate Middleton.
It can be recalled that in 2012, pictures of the Duchess appearing topless, captured during the couple's vacation, was published on French's Closer Magazine, leading the Prince to sue the outlet for invasion of privacy.

The St. James Palace released a statement at the time, noting that the incident was "reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Princess Diana," which made the repeat-encounter more upsetting to the Cambridge royals.
Fatal Voyage's "Diana: Case Solved" is a 12-part audio documentary that reviews Princess Diana's last drive, with accounts of eyewitnesses, forensic experts, and detectives, in a bid to unveil the hidden secrets behind the royal's death.
