Gagged! Book revealing 'explosive truth' about Diana and Dodi by Mohamed Al Fayed's right-hand man is pulled after tycoon's legal threats

    Book promised new revelations about Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed's deaths
    It was written by Michael Cole, who works for Dodi's father Mohamed Al Faye
    But Mr Al Fayed intervened so 'Diana and Dodi: The Truth' will not be published
    It means the book's potentially scandalous contents may never be revealed

Dodi's story is well known now. I don't think there would have been anything new. Just pictures from Studio 54 or something like that

'Security at Diana's hotel was a shambles': Former spy blasts Paris Ritz for ‘major lapses’ on the night of the Princess' death

    Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed died in a car crash in Paris on August 31, 1997
    The 36-year-old mother of two was staying in the Ritz in Paris when she died
    Former Army officer Alan McGregor, 68,  believes the crash was not accidental

^ Yes, what can be more sid about Dodi? His name in history has only been cemented next to Diana because they died together, she knew him all of 5 minutes.
And the priest or what he is saying Di planned to marry Dodi because "she asked if it's okay for an Anglican [her] to marry a Muslim", yes compelling evidence when we conveniently forget that she was with Khan for ages and at that point was still pining for Khan and was with him the night before she left for France. I have learnt some new things from the articles and all that these past few months, but much of it is just people who knew her for 10 seconds looking for their bit of Diana-fame and relying pure speculation. Annoying.

Well today is the 40th anniversary of Elvis' death and every year fans and his family pay tribute. I think this will happen on key anniversaries of Diana's death too.It's all Elvis films on today on the classic movie station.

I think the difference is that Lisa-Marie did not use her father's untimely death to excuse any self-destructiveness.

I think on some level Charles liked women fighting over him. 

More like all levels.

Queen and senior royals REFUSED to applaud after Earl Spencer delivered his vitriolic eulogy at Diana's funeral (but William and Harry did clap)

    Revelation made in new ITV documentary Diana: The Day Britain Cried
    One of Queen's senior aides opens up about thinly veiled attack on royals
    Earl Spencer seemed to have 'a little bit of a go' at the royal family
    As applause from outside rippled through, senior royals did not join in


Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-4800774/Senior-royals-didn-t-clap-Earl-Spencer-Diana-funeral.html

-> New articles, all in-tie as seems with another documentary, "Diana: The Day Britain Cried" on ITV in late August.
More on the dm, but those add no new tidbit (one's about Phil saying he'll walk if Will walks, ie some of those stories everyone and their dog knows/ remembers; some of these are new "revelations", like this one and the one above, at least to me).

Very sorry about posting doubly in such a short time  sorry Mods, please merge!

There was a short discussion on Cepe Smith's Twitter about the new doco on the week following Diana's death which will be on British TV soon. On the subject of the eulogy by Earl Spencer, Robert Jobson who's a Royal correspondent, stated that Charles clapped afterwards, and he saw him.

Charles was said to be afraid "they would blame him." I doubt he was sincere if he clapped. He was the one who wanted Diana's HRH removed according to various sources. It seems hypocritical if he clapped.

Diana asked to HRH to be removed and later she was advised to keep it, but then the queen wouldnt change.... i've read it was philip who wanted diana's hrh removed, indeed he was told have threatened take her title away few times during the war of waleses

At the time the New York Times had an article that the Queen wanted Diana to keep the HRH but Charles over ruled her and wanted the HRH removed. Diana did not say publicly she wanted the HRH removed. She leaked some of the divorce settlement possibilities including removal of the HRH. DIana recalled William comforting her and he would restore the HRH when he became King. Philip did not like Diana so I think he too would have wanted it removed.

Charles never ever will over rule the Queen not now not at that time...

Do you know what I think it's sad?
The monarchy will not survive for long... may not resist Charles and if it's able to will just be there until one of Diana's sons gets the throne... but William is useless, so the monarchy will go down...
And like it or not, Charles could be king at the moment if he remained married with Diana! They would be a team that will project the UK abroad!!!
I don't believe that all the fascination over Diana would fall, no it will be the opposite... The problem was that she was a child when she married and they were both spoiled!!!
Then Lord Moutbethen told Charles something that will make his marriage collapse, that he could have one and have a lot of women and hang around with all of them...

In life nothing happens by accident. we must remember that there are no good that lasts forever. And evil that never ends. God works in mysterious ways. So I just have to accept what happens because we do not know what we gain by things go this way. Not always what initially seems an award is the. This happens when we fall in love, when we found out a new job when a friend disappears or when someone leaves for ever.

Mountbatten wanted Charles to marry his granddaughter, Amanda. In that way Mountbatten would be the great  grandfather of a future King or Queen. He told Charles to sow as many wild oats as possible before he married a woman of no experience and marry her before she could meet anybody else. I suppose the implication was that Charles be faithful to the wife, though Mountbatten did not specify. If Mountbatten had human feelings he probably would have been angered at Charles cheating on his granddaughter Amanda. He did not consider Camilla or Kanga, the married mistresses Suitable for marriage. Charles also was involved with many others. I still blame Charles the most for his own poor choices. He did not have to listen to Mountbatten.

I think in some ways Charles has over ruled the Queen. In Philip's absence due to sickness, he was said to have kept his siblings and his nieces and nephews away from the balcony (during the Queen's Jubilee year) and only allowed his own immediate family to appear with his mother. I think he prevailed upon his mother to remove the HRH from Diana. Charles can be quite ruthless.

Thing is, that Mountbatten came from a generation where the mistress NEVER became the wife of a royal prince. If a woman chose to be "The Other Woman," she would forfeit any chance at being a consort and frankly Camilla's status as member of the gentry prohibited her from being a royal consort of any kind of man who would be king. Mountbatten came from an era and class where it was unfathomable that someone of the gentry could make it to the wife of a prince. He didn't see it since it was beyond his comprehension. Remember, Mountbatten was a man of his times and in his view ,Camilla's virtue was simply not there and she was 'lesser' because of her lack of rank.
