Publisher's Summary

The death of Princess Diana, Princess of Wales, sent shockwaves around the world. A nation was left in mourning, but soon feelings of suspicion surfaced: was her death all that the Establishment might wish us to believe?

Now, after an exhaustive two-year probe, investigative writer and former journalist Noel Botham has dared to reveal what the people of Britain have always believed - that Diana's death was murder.

Using his unique contacts in the secretive worlds of intelligence and royalty, the author has uncovered the facts that prove Diana was - as she herself predicted she would be - the victim of a professional hit squad. He presents a clear account of what really happened on that fateful day of 31 August 1997. Why was the killing sanctioned? How was it executed? Was there really another car in the tunnel at the time of the crash? All of these questions and more, including how the truth was covered up by an official whitewash, are answered.

This astounding book is what all enquiring minds have been waiting for, blowing the lid off the secrets the Establishment does not want us to know. The Murder of Princess Diana firmly lays to rest the theory that Diana's death was a tragic accident, and finally gives the people of Britain the explanation they deserve.

It's a slow burn that leads to the ominous end.

I didn't believe it was murder at the start. But it changed my mind.

As with Syria and the Skripals, once you realize that our intel services are sinister and not afraid to lie to us, then it's easier to see what happened here.

Diana was asking for it in a way. She was breaking taboos and intentionally one upping Charles in the public sphere. But they treated her like dirt. This was an arranged marriage gone wrong. She was under stress during the pregnancies. It's a miracle that the sons didn't turn out queer. Because that can happen. It's insane that the royal family doesn't even know this.

Liked it!

Interesting book. Gives great contrast to Penny Junor's The Duchess -biography about Camilla, that I just finished. There are many sides to the same story.

The Murder of Princess Diana

Where does The Murder of Princess Diana rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The story was very interesting and eye opening, but was totally ruined by the reader. Who ever chose Simon Whistler read the book should be assassinated.

What did you like best about this story?

Very informative.

How could the performance have been better?

Totally different reader. Simon Whistler was dreadful, would not by any book read by him.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, knew the story and the conclusion. The reader made me want to cry.

Any additional comments?

Very disappoint with the performance of what was a well researched book.
