Diana Probe Set for Next Year
- Inquest could feature royal family as witnesses

Diana Probe Set for Next YearTHE NEXT intriguing stage in the official investigation into the death of Princess Diana, a series of public hearings, is to go ahead early next year, it has been announced.

New coroner for the case, Dame Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, will spend the intervening months taking in the most recent police report into the fatal Paris car crash, prepared by ex-Metropolitan Police chief Sir John Stevens.

In the legal hearings, Butler-Schloss will let us know what she intends to do with Stevens report and which witnesses she wants to call possibly including Princes Charles and Philip.

Stevens caused some excitement in Diana conspiracy theory circles by telling the world that the case was "far more complex than any of us thought" and several newspapers have since published stories contradicting the initial probe into the Princess�s death conducted by Paris police.

The investigation itself reads like an appendix to the main supposed conspiracy, with personnel changing regularly. Lady Butler-Schloss has been dragged out of retirement to hear the case after the sudden departure of her predecessor Michael Burgess.
