A former SAS sniper, known as Soldier N, has claimed that the 1997 Paris car crash, which killed Princess Diana, her beau Dodi Fayed and chauffer Henri Paul, happened when a blinding light was shone in the driver’s eyes to make him lose control of the car
The murder plot came to light because of a chance encounter between the elite regiment’s Soldier N and Prince William in 2008, the Mirror reported
According to the UK publication, Soldier N gave the Duke of Cambridge an SAS advanced driving course and on the same day he divulged the details of the elite regiment’s link in Diana’s Paris car accident to his wife
During an interrogation with Scotland Yard, the soldier’s former wife claimed that she was shocked, when her hubby disclosed to her that ‘one of the guys’ from the unit was responsible for the accident
The woman alleged that Soldier N had told her that the car crash had to happen in a tunnel, where a bright light was shone in the driver’s eyes, ‘to guarantee death.
During the questioning process, the wife insisted that she completely believes her former husband’s claims and was sworn to secrecy by him
She also told interrogators that Soldier N had claimed that the “hit” had been carried out on the orders of individuals within the royal inner circle as Diana’s relationship with Fayed wasn’t approved by them.
