PRINCESS DIANA'S SECRET ENGAGEMENT
A German journalist has come forward to tell of a visit to Monte Carlo by Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed – just seven
days before the fatal Paris car crash in August 1997.
Trixi Chall, who wrote for Germany’s popular Bild newspaper for two decades, claims she saw Diana pointing at and
picking out a diamond-encrusted ring from an exclusive jeweller as they strolled through the resort.
Dodi later arranged for the £11,500 ring – from Repossi the jeweller’s Tell Me Yes range – to be sent to the shop’s
sister outlet in Paris. It was then delivered to his suite at the Paris Ritz hotel just hours before the couple died.
The remarkable evidence adds weight to the claims made by former Harrods owner Mohamed Al Fayed that Diana and
Dodi were murdered in an Establishment plot to stop the Princess marrying a Muslim.
Ms Chall has now come forward to speak for the first time about the dramatic event she witnessed during an ordinary
morning shopping excursion in the swish casino resort of Monte Carlo on Saturday August 23 1997.
Ms Chall had retired and was living in Monte Carlo at the time. On that morning she went to an electrical store by the
port. She said that on leaving she glanced across the road and was surprised to see Diana hand-in-hand with a man
she had never seen before.
She said: “It was amazing because there were no bodyguards. I was stunned as they looked like a very normal young
couple in love, rather like naughty teenagers. I just remained on the other side of the road and they walked on a bit
ahead of me.
“She was so beautiful and so happy and at one point he put his arm around her shoulder and I felt I could cry. I
thought to myself, ‘Thank God she’s found a man.’
“They were dressed very casually and no one paid any attention to them. I was fascinated and he looked kind, which
was nice to see. I felt that love was in the air.”
Ms Chall followed them. She said: “Nobody else was aware of them and they were aware of nobody, as if they were the
only ones in the world. They were not in any hurry, were chatting happily and strolling casually.”
Ms Chall, who has detailed her account in a signed statutory declaration, added: “They went to the shop on the left of
the Hermitage hotel. They looked in the window and Diana was pointing with her finger at something. I saw them
entering the shop.”
There has been much speculation that Diana had an engagement ring when she died after secretly becoming
engaged to Mr Fayed.
During the 2007 inquest into the couple’s death, evidence was heard from the shop owner Albert Repossi that Diana
had tried the ring on.
And Ritz hotel executive Claude Roulet said he brought Dodi the love token to give to Diana, hours before the crash
on August 30 1997.
When she arrived back home, Ms Chall called her friends and relatives.
Her niece, Janet Sayers, speaking last week from her home in Croydon, south London, recalled the phone call. She
said: “It was no ‘Hello darling’ as usual, but ‘Guess who I have seen in Monaco today’. She told me they looked so
much in love. She also said she saw them looking in a jewellery shop at rings.”
Ms Chall said she has never given her account to the various investigations because she felt strongly from very early
on there was a huge “cover-up of the truth coming from the top”. She said: “I did write an article for Bild but they
rejected it and told me it was ‘too hot to handle’.”
She added: “Going to the police would have been a waste of time and I didn’t want any problems. They would probably
say I was inventing it.”
But John Morgan, an investigative author who has written several books about Diana’s death, said Ms Chall has
provided a very credible account that fits with the evidence of other witnesses at the London inquests.
He said that Dodi’s holistic healer Myriah Daniels, who was there, had told how Diana and Dodi had taken off at one
point without the bodyguards in Monte Carlo.
In an inquest statement, Claude Roulet, vice-president of the Paris Ritz Hotel, said how Dodi had told him Diana liked a
ring she had seen. Mr Roulet was asked to ensure the ring was available for them in Paris.
A week later in Paris, Dodi bought the engagement ring from Repossi’s Dis-Moi-Oui – Tell Me Yes – range.
In his summing up to the inquest jury Lord Justice Scott Baker stated “there is no evidence Diana participated in
choosing” the ring.
But Mr Morgan said: “The truth may be quite different. This new account from Trixi Chall should be viewed in the light
of the inquest evidence of both Myriah Daniels and Claude Roulet.”
He added: “In a bizarre twist to this story, the staff inside the Monte Carlo Repossi store on August 23 1997 were not
heard from during Scott Baker’s “thorough” inquest and have never been interviewed by police.”

S.A.S. ORDERED TO KILL DIANA
POLICE UNDER PRESSURE TO OPEN FULL MURDER INVESTIGATION
The claim made by the ex - wife of the S.A.S. soldier has meant increased pressure on the police to fully re-open the
case. The soldier apparently sought to justify the action saying "It's an order, a job's a job!"
They were talking together and she had said to him how lovely it was to see Prince William and Prince Harry were
doing so well and that it was sad their mum wasn't thereto see it. He then said one of the guys was responsible for the
accident, for the death of Diana. The wife was shocked as she believed her husband and he continued telling her that
it had to be done in a tunnel, that people had been monitoring them and a light was shone in the driver's eyes. He said
it had to happen in a tunnel to guarantee death.
'Soldier N' 's former wife claims she was sworn to secrecy when he told her that the hit was carried out by S.A.S.
soldiers riding motorcycles acting on orders from individuals from the "Inner Circle" of the Royal Family who
disapproved of Diana's romance with Dodi Fayed. The evidence she and her mother have given detectives who
interviewed them last month is said to be "Compelling". At this time the "Scoping" still continuing, the case has not
been re - opened to investigation and inquiry.
"Well first of all I want to say I am so sorry that my boys are having to read or be made aware of articles like this but it
is necessary as the truth needs to be told and they more than anyone else need to know it as certainly it affects William's
future as he is very much his own man and prefers to do things his way as indeed so too does Harry. The era is different,
the mind set correspondingly so naturally and my boys are determined as being the future face of the monarchy if
indeed it survives which is questionable!
William and Harry will always be popular in their own right with or without official royal tiltes and that mapped out
destiny ahead of them as they are Diana's boys and such lovely boys as people who know them and those who meet them
always say! Charles and I have every reason to be proud parents and we are!
From this article it would appear certain members of the royals were instructive of the event happening in Paris but I do
not mean "H.R.H. The Prince of Wales", my being happy in my personal life meant less guilt for him being happy in his
but there were others who were powerful and openly explicit about their dislike of Dodi and his father and who openly
voiced their opinion about them both in company!
As I have said I am not through Andrew going to channel what happened in Paris but once it is known will fill in the
blanks, the missing pieces of the jigsaw so the puzzle fits and after all at the moment the words of a dead ex - princess
would not be something taken serious note of anyway, hardly seen as being credible evidence whatever she might say! I
can afford to bide my time after all; I've bags of it! Andrew has an enormous responsibility ahead of him, more than even
he realises himself at this time but will have all the necessary support and protection to carry it out successfully and I
personally have every confidence in him doing a good job with a little help from me doing my bit.
It is interesting that the word "Compelling" is one used to describe the evidence; part of anyway that has been given, this
implies a belief of its credibility and authenticity so it is my belief certain people will now be running scared and delaying
tactics and strategies coming into play I would imagine but I always said the incident in Paris was not as professional as it
might have been and I am being proved right so that's a relief to me naturally!"

DIANA 'MURDER' PROBE IN CHAOS
How perfectly timed that as "Soldier N" was about to be interviewed by Scotland Yard's D.C.I. Philip Easton about the
allegations he made of the S.A.S. being directly involved in the assassination of Diana, Princess of Wales in Paris in
1997 should leave the U.K. for apparently Dubai. Forgive my cynicism but very convenient. His fleeing might be
genuine, suddenly feeling the heat he got out of town but if clearly his identity known, his location known did the police
not think he might try to make a fast exit as after all his claims if proven correct will mean a lot of heads rolling not least
of all apparently even senior members of the House of Windsor. A precarious and dangerous position for him to find
himself in and I do personally wonder if he was strongly advised to quietly disappear. Personally back in the 1980's
when I was involved in witnessing an East End London gangs professional hit in Wapping and escaped being wasted
in the River Thames myself by them (yes I have had a colourful life!) literally running for my life! The police advised me
to make myself scarce for six months or so and I moved to Swansea, South Wales so personally have experienced the
pressure to leave. Enroute to Whitechapel hospital to check out the nips made by a machete knife I saw the gang of
four walking calmly through the backstreets and told the ambulance men who stopped the ambulance and got on the
radio to the cops who then stalled opening the ambulance door to check with me if I was sure it was them? So the four
men seeing police and ambulance with blue lights flashing knew to make themselves scarce and did!
I asked the cops why they didn't act immediately and was told " East End gangs like that one don't mess with the
public, you were in the wrong place and the wrong time and the only witness chances are they'd have killed you but
you're alive so we let the professional gangs wage war with each other, now if you had been killed; then we would have
to have got involved!" What a comforting thought ! As I say it amazes me security was not tighter around him seeing
he was days away from speaking to police when he vanished and why his passport was not seized as a necessary
precautionary measure."Soldier N" was due to interviewed by police as a part of the "Scoping Exercise" currently being
conducted by them and his information key to the investigation process and even progress as clearly he was being
viewed seriously by them conversely to being seen as being a "Loose Cannon" as was initially assumed!
The fact he has gone seems to point to the fact that his evidence proves even more credible without being verified by
him personally but this will be necessary to do to proceed with the new investigation into the events happening in Paris
on August 31st 1997. I am hoping I do not read that his body is soon discovered, an apparent suicide; to date it hasn't
been but known he is in Dubai, apparently he is being searched for and I hope in connection with the interview and for
no other reason. There was pressure on him mounting since the revelations came to light and a police spokesman
quoted as saying "No one can be sure why he has gone."
Let me have a guess .."He values his life!" The D.C.I. due to interview him was involved in the origianal multi - million
inquiry by Scotland Yard into the Parisian deaths as Diana died with her boyfriend Dodi Fayed and their chauffeur for
one night only literally, Henri Paul. His position normally being Deputy Head of Security at the Ritz Hotel in the French
capital city owned by Dodi's father Mohamed al-Fayed. Henri Paul chosen to drive the couple because he knew Paris
so well and so would have known of the bump in the road approaching the Pont de L'Alma tunnel and therefore I would
have thought sensibly not something he would have done at speed risking ruining the cars suspension or skidding and
out of control crashing knowing it was a tunnel supported by concrete pillars? He had not expressed to anyone having
a death wish and was responsible for the lives of his three passengers; Diana, Princess of Wales, Dodi Fayed and
sole survivor their bodyguard Trevor Rees - Jones!
The Sunday People newspaper has been told that the S.A.S. did perfect a 'Lamping' technique similar to the one
allegedly used to kill Princess Diana. Former members of the unit said the tactic was developed in the 1980's to stop
cars being driven by terrorists and armed criminals. It was intended as a "Soft-Stop" so a way to safely bring a
speeding vehicle to a halt without causing a crash. At the time I.R.A. terrorists were driving vehicles packed with
explosives around the U.K. in plots to blow up city centres and senior military commanders had to find a means to
thwart them. One source said "The S.A.S. had to develop a series of tactics for every eventuality. In the 1980's the I.R.
A. were driving bombs to targets around the U.K. The S.A.S. was tasked with coming up with a series of tactical options
designed to stop a vehicle and this was one of them. It was effective but risky because of the chance of an I.R.A.driver
crashing due the light being deliberately flashed in their eyes." It is feared or ought that to be hoped by some that
without "Soldier N" being personally interviewed by the poilce, that the new investigation conducted by Scotland Yard
into the incident happening in Paris in 1997 will collapse!
Am I shocked at this news? Not at all, no, I half expected it or worse-- that his body was found; thank
goodness this has not been the case. The fact the information has come to light 16 years after the incident happening is
extremely powerful in itself and that "Soldier N' having suddenly vanished extremely telling. Not all want the truth
known naturally but I will say it again, this is not something in human hands, it is energetic and therefore not something
that can be prepared for and proving ultimately being unstoppable from happening!"

Di 'MURDER' S.A.S. MAN IN FEAR OF HIS LIFE
The S.A.S. man at the centre of the Princess Diana murder probe has fled the U.K. in fear of his life and is in
Thailand, South east Asia. There are fears the mystery of what exactly happened in Paris on August 31st 1997 will
never be solved as the S.A.S. sniper who sensationally claimed the S.A.S. assassinated Diana is in hiding. Intially
thought to have fled to Dubai 'Soldier N' was told by ex-pats there that it was too dangerous a place for him to be. He
not welcomed in the Middle East as there is a large community of former S.A.S. personnel who use Dubai and other
areas for their work. In their eyes he has betrayed the S.A.S. and it is also costly to live in the Gulf states.
Thailand alternatively has an "Ask no questions" culture and provides low cost living and has been a magnet for
runaways for years. Mohamed al- Fayed, Dodi Fayed's father is reported to be furious that the man has been allowed
to leave the U.K.
31st August 2013 .. Sue Reid investigative journalist for the Daily Mail wrote ..
Ever since Diana’s death at the age of 36, I have investigated forensically the events that led up to the crash and what
happened afterwards.I have spoken to eye-witnesses, French and British intelligence officers, SAS soldiers and to
friends of Diana and Dodi. And I have interviewed the Brittany-based parents of the 41-year-old chauffeur Henri Paul.
They told me, with tears in their eyes, that their son was not a heavy drinker: his chosen potion was a bottle of beer or
the occasional Ricard, a liquorice-flavoured aperitif.
The fact is that too many of these accounts suggest that Diana’s death was no accident.
Crucially, my investigations show that the paparazzi who supposedly hounded Diana to her death were not even in the
Pont d’Alma tunnel at the time of the car crash. They also reveal how a high-powered black motorbike — which did not
belong to any of the paparazzi — shot past Diana’s Mercedes in the tunnel.
Eyewitnesses say its rider and pillion passenger deliberately caused the car to crash. In addition, my inquiries
unearthed the existence of a shadowy SAS unit that answers to MI6, as well as the names of two MI6 officers who were
linked by a number of sources to Diana’s death.Could the Establishment really have turned Henri Paul and the
paparazzi into scapegoats? Could there have been a skilful cover-up by people in powerful places to hide exactly what
There is little doubt that Diana, recently divorced from Prince Charles, was a thorn in the side of the Royal Family. Her
romance with Dodi, though only six weeks old, was serious. The Princess had given her lover her ‘most precious
possession’ — a pair of her deceased father’s cufflinks — and phoned friends, saying she had a ‘big surprise’ for them
when she returned from Paris.
Dodi had slipped out of the Ritz Hotel, as Diana was having her hair done, to collect a jewel-encrusted ring adorned
with the words ‘Tell Me Yes’ from a swanky Paris jeweller. It came from a collection of engagement rings.
Rumours were circulating, too, that the Princess was pregnant. Photographs of her in a leopard-print swimsuit, on
holiday in the South of France 14 days earlier, show an unmistakable bump around her waistline.
And, as the Mail revealed after Diana’s death, she had visited — in the strictest secrecy — a leading London hospital
for a pregnancy scan just before that photo was snapped. To add to the disquiet, the mother of a future King of
England and head of the Church of England was threatening to move abroad with her Muslim boyfriend and take the
royal Princes, William and Harry, with her.
Dodi had bought an estate, once owned by film star Julie Andrews, by the beach in Malibu, California, and shown
Diana a video of it. He told her the sumptuous house was where they would spend their married life.
Ostracised by the Royal Family and stripped of her HRH title, Diana was said to be excited by the prospect.
Dodi’s father, Mohamed Al Fayed, the multi-millionaire former owner of Harrods, insists Diana was pregnant by his son
and preparing to tell the young Princes about her forthcoming marriage when she returned to Britain on September 1
— the day after the crash — before they went back to boarding school.However far-fetched it sounds, all the
Establishment concerns about Diana were genuine. But could this really have led to her assassination? And if so, how
could it have been carried out?
These questions are partially answered by the compelling testimony of 14 independent eyewitnesses near the crash
scene that night. They say Diana’s car was surrounded at the entrance to the Alma tunnel by a phalanx of cars and
motorcycles, which sped after the Mercedes.
The assumption has always been that the cars and bikes were carrying the paparazzi. By the Monday morning after
the crash, outside the Alma tunnel, a huge message had appeared. ‘Killer paparazzi’ had been sprayed in gold paint
on the walls. No one, to this day, knows who put it there — or why they were not stopped by the French authorities
from doing so. Yet the paparazzi following Diana did not reach the Pont d’Alma tunnel until at least one minute after the
crash, so they cannot be to blame.
Indeed, two years later they were cleared of manslaughter charges after the French state prosecutor said there was
‘insufficient evidence’ of their involvement in Diana’s death. What happened is that the paparazzi had been deceived.
In a clever ploy devised by Henri Paul, The Ritz had placed a decoy Mercedes at the front of the hotel to confuse the
photographers, which allowed the lovers to slip out of the back door into a similar car. The last picture of Diana
peering from the rear window was taken by a France-based photographer who had seen through the ruse and was
standing on the pavement by the hotel’s rear entrance watching as the ‘real’ Mercedes sped off. The allegation that
Princess Diana was murdered by the SAS is under investigation
Yet that Mercedes was definitely being hotly pursued when in the tunnel. The independent witnesses insist it was being
followed not only by the black motorbike, but by two speeding cars, a dark saloon and a white turbo Fiat Uno.
There is no evidence to link these cars or the motorcycle to the paparazzi who had been waiting at the Ritz.
The saloon tail-gated the Mercedes, which made the chauffeur — thinking, wrongly, he was being pursued by
paparazzi — drive even faster and more erratically. Meanwhile, the Uno accelerated, clipping the side of the Mercedes
to push it to one side.
This maneuver allowed the black motorbike to speed past Diana’s car, with its two riders wearing helmets that hid their
faces. Witnesses claim that when the bike was about 15ft in front of the car, there was a fierce flash of white light from
the motorbike. The suggestion is that this came from a laser beam carried by the pillion passenger and directed at the
car. The witnesses’ view is that the flash of light blinded Henri Paul temporarily. It was followed by a loud bang as the
limousine swerved violently before slamming into the 13th pillar in the tunnel and being reduced to a mass of wrecked
One of those eyewitnesses, a French harbour pilot driving ahead of the Mercedes through the tunnel, watched the
scene in his rear-view mirror. Chillingly, he recalls the black motorbike stopping after the crash and one of the riders
jumping off the bike before going to peer in the Mercedes window at the passengers. The rider, who kept his helmet
on, then turned to his compatriot on the bike and gave a gesture used informally in the military (where both arms are
crossed over the body and then thrown out straight to each side) to indicate ‘mission accomplished’. Afterwards, he
climbed back on the motorcycle, which raced off out of the tunnel. The riders on the bike, and the vehicle itself, have
never been identified. The harbour pilot, whose wife was with him in the car, has described the horrifying scenario as
resembling a ‘terrorist attack’.
So, who could have been driving the bike and the other vehicles that did follow Diana’s car into the Alma tunnel that
night? Could they really have been part of the plot to get rid of Diana and her lover — a plot orchestrated by MI6 or
the SAS regiment, as the latest sensational claims suggest?
After Diana’s death, I received a nine-line note in the post containing the names of two MI6 men who have spent their
entire careers working at the heart of the British Establishment, representing the Government as senior diplomats,
whom I will call X and Y. Written in blue felt-tip pen on a flimsy piece of paper ripped from an A4 exercise book, the
note said: ‘If you are brave enough, dig deeper to learn about X and Y. Both MI6. Both were involved at the highest
level in the murder of the Princess.’ It signed off with the words: ‘Good luck.’.
Of course, an unsigned note does not provide firm evidence, or anything like it, that MI6 spies were operating in Paris
that evening or were connected with Diana’s death. Yet their names came up again when I received a call from a well-
placed source within the intelligence services. He named the same two men, X and Y, who had overseen the ‘Paris
operation’ and said the crash was designed to frighten Diana into halting her romance with Dodi because he was
considered an unsuitable partner. ‘We hoped to break her arm or cause a minor injury,’ said my informant. ‘The
operation was also overseen by a top MI6 officer known as the tall man, who is now retired and living on the Continent.
He admits it went wrong. No one in MI6 wanted Diana to be killed.’
And this week the men’s names were mentioned again, this time by Moscow intelligence. According to the author of a
new book, the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service, the SVR, knew that X and Y were in Paris on the night Diana died.
And after the car crash the SVR set out to find out why. Gennady Sokolov, whose book The Kremlin vs The Windsors
will be published next year, told me this week: ‘Of course our people were following your agents.
They were senior MI6 officers operating secretly in Paris that night, without the knowledge of even French counter-
intelligence. They left again after she was dead. ‘Her relationship and possible marriage to Dodi was deeply worrying
to senior royals in Britain. The Princess’s phone was constantly listened to and she was followed all the time.
‘After the crash, public opinion was deliberately led astray. Scapegoats were created, such as the paparazzi and the
drunk driver. There was a dance around Henri Paul, saying he was an alcohol addict, a virtual kamikaze, who helped
to destroy them all. It is total nonsense. ‘From the very beginning, it was clear to me it was not just an accident. My
sources in the SVR and other Russian secret services are sure it was a very English murder. ‘They have talked to me
about an SAS squad called The Increment, which is attached to MI6, being involved in the assassination.
‘These guys work on the top level without leaving a single trace, and — perhaps — one was on the motorbike following
Diana’s car.’ But why did none of this extraordinary story come out at the inquest into Diana’s death, which should
have been the final word on it?
It’s true that 14 tunnel witnesses were at least allowed to appear or send their testimonies. But much of their vital
information was completely submerged by the sheer volume of evidence presented over the six months of the hearing.
We heard that chauffeur Henri Paul and Dodi Fayed were killed instantly; that the sole survivor was the bodyguard
Trevor Rees Jones, who suffered such devastating facial injuries he has no memory of events in the tunnel, and that
with the pulmonary vein in her chest torn, Diana died nearly four hours later of heart failure and blood loss at Paris’s
Pitie Salpetriere hospital. But we also know that the inquest never unravelled the full truth. More than 170 important
witnesses, including the doctor who embalmed Diana’s body (a process that camouflages pregnancy in post-mortem
blood tests) were never called to the inquest.
One radiologist from Pitie Salpetriere hospital, who said that she had seen a small foetus of perhaps six to ten weeks
in the Princess’s womb during an X-ray and a later sonogram of her body, was not questioned. Instead, she was
allowed by the judge heading the inquest, Lord Justice Scott Baker, to send a statement giving her current address in
America and no more details. Crucially, the hearing was cruelly unfair to chauffeur Henri Paul, who was vilified from the
On the day after the crash, French authorities insisted that he was an alcoholic and ‘drunk as a pig’ when he left the
Ritz that night to drive the lovers to Dodi’s Paris apartment near the Champs-Elysees. It has since emerged that the
blood tests on Paul’s body had not been completed when they made the announcement to journalists.
Furthermore, the chauffeur had passed an intensive medical examination for flying lessons three days before the
crash — his liver showed no sign of alcohol abuse. A string of witnesses at the Ritz say Paul drank two shots of his
favourite Ricard at the bar before taking to the wheel, which was confirmed by bar receipts at the hotel.
However, after a shambolic mix- up over his blood samples (deliberate or otherwise), it was pronounced by a medical
expert at the inquest that Paul had downed ten of the aperitifs, was twice over the British driving limit and three times
over the French one, when he drove the Mercedes that night.
Soldier N is key to this inquiry as he
is the person who made the claims.
