Father of Princess Diana’s death crash driver Henri Paul claims British police told him she was murdered and his son was ‘collateral damage’
The father of Henri Paul, Princess Diana’s driver on the night she died, has claimed UK police told him she was murdered.
Henri’s elderly father Jean, 85, fears he will die without knowing the full story behind the crash.
Mr Paul, the acting head of security at the Ritz Hotel in Paris, was at the wheel of the Mercedes which crashed in the Alma Tunnel in the early hours of August 31, 1997 with Diana and Dodi Al Fayed in the back.
He said: ‘Diana was killed and my son was killed. I believe they were both murdered. My son was simply collateral damage of a plot to kill Diana and they killed him as well.
‘I am 100% sure he [Henri] was not involved in this plot. He was too honourable and too honest.’
