Whilst watching the news last night, I was very disturbed by what I saw.
The report on Mohammed Al Fayed’s appearance at the Royal Court of Justice yesterday left me feeling rather angry. As many of you will be aware, Mr Al Fayed believes that the death of Diana, Princess of Wales and his son, Dodi were caused by a conspiracy hatched by the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales amongst others. Yesterday he gave contraversial evidence in support of his claim, where he stated determined in his protest that it is the Establishment and the security services including MI5 and MI6 who had worked together to ensure the murder of the couple. Fayed also stated that that he believed their motive was to prevent the marriage of the couple due to the fact that Princess Diana was pregnant. Which it has been proven that she was not. Right then…
I don’t think I have ever heard such a totally unfounded and ridiculous claim as this one. The media circus that surrounds the terrible events of the death of Diana is bad enough as it is after 10 years of a constant stream of reporting on what happened, let alone what Al Fayed is saying now. I despair at the situation. Surely some respect is due, it is a cliche I know but doesn’t the Princess of Wales deserve to rest in peace?
The claims being made in court yesterday by Fayed were laughable to an extent that the BBC news report seemed to convey an almost satirical edge because what was being suggested was merely preposterous. Amongst others, a particularly insightful comment from Al Fayed referring to the Royal Family suggested they were the ‘Dracula’ family with particular reference to Prince Philip being a ‘Nazi’ and a ‘racist’. Nice.
And there’s more… when the BBC’s royal correspondent, Peter Hunt questioned Mr Al Fayed as he left the court, he was branded as working for MI6 (obviously) and called an ‘idiot’. How lovely.
It was certainly a remarkable day in Court for all those present. But the entire claim being made here is utter madness, one might even say a joke, with a total lack of respect for the Princes’ whose mother’s memory is seemingly being dragged through the mud, yet again. It’s a disgrace.
