French Police To Reopen Diana Investigation After Publication Of Conspiracy Note

French police are to reopen an investigation into the death of British royal DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES - after the publication of a letter in which the Princess wrote of a alleged plot to kill her.

Diana's former butler PAUL BURRELL published the handwritten note in his book A ROYAL DUTY, which chronicles his relationship with the tragic royal who was killed in 1997.

According to reports in the British tabloids, the letter allegedly tells of a the Princess' fears for her own safety, and speaks of a plot to kill her in a car crash so estranged husband PRINCE CHARLES could remarry.

While many close to Diana insist the new evidence merely demonstrates how paranoid she had become towards the end of her life, others believe Diana's prediction is chilling evidence that there is more to her death than meets the eye.

The Princess was killed in August 1997 after a car carrying her and lover DODI AL FAYED crashed in a tunnel in Paris, France - killing all but one of the four passengers.

The British Foreign Office released a statement on behalf of secret service M16 which read, "There is not a shred of truth in allegations the accident was a conspiracy."
