Princess Diana's Death

Controversial Documentary

AXED Permanently

The controversial documentary about an alleged cover-up surrounding Princess Diana's death is being shelved indefinitely by the film's producers.

The docu-film called "Unlawful Killing" raised some major conspiracy theories about the circumstances surrounding the deaths of Princess Di and the car's other passenger Dodi Al-Fayed ... even placing a lot of blame on the Royal Family.

The film -- a 4-year project financed by Al-Fayed's father -- sold last year to several foreign markets at the Cannes Film Festival for 2012 distribution (not in the U.K. of course) ... but has now been shelved permanently.

A producer for the film told The Hollywood Reporter the problem was the uninsurable nature of the documentary -- no company could guarantee protection from losses stemming from lawsuits that might occur due to the film's controversial content.

The producer says, "It became undoable. We are all disappointed."

The "monarchy" is an archaic ,outdated style of life. It should be abolished (as was done in France,years ago.) England needs to get modern and dump the Royal freeloaders!! They are NOT special.

After all these years, the number one promulgator of this harebrained conspiracy theory remains Dodi's father, who never got over simultaneously losing both his son and his big chance for "respectability" with the British establishment (if you believe that Diana was serious about Dodi and would have married him).

Time to lay all of it to rest, please!

Princess Diana was a "Candle in the Wind. Someone created a memorial page for her on Evertalk within Facebook. You can post in her guestbook and read her biography. Here's the link: https://apps.facebook.com/evertalk/index/memorial/princessfrances4132

Total bull**** She died simply because she got into a car driven by someone who had been drinking He was not allowed to drive and the stupid bitch got rid of her police protection squad

The car was being driven so fast the paps could not keep up with it.

When will people let this precious mother of two wonderful sons rest in peace? She died at the hands of a drunk driver, who just happened to be high on pills as well! I wish the world would leave her and her family alone. It is time to let go of these ridiculous theories and face the truth! RIP dearest Diana.
