In 1997, the bening yet lascivious Diana, Princess of Wales passed. Rumors have ubiquitously outspread, amongst them some ludicrous others conforming to reality and holding some degree of validity. A tripartite of the conspiracies- each with its respective way of knowing, that possess substantial merit with evidence that is conducive to the canonicity of the conspiracy will be analysed scrupulously. We recognize that there might be biased behavior in this investigation with regards to the treatment of the more inane conspiracies but will make an attempt to objectively consider the evidence, context, and content of the event. The following scheme’s were considered in our investigation: “The flash before the crash”, “Diana was pregnant”, and…show more content…
Princess Diana had been dating the son of an Egyptian businessman, “Dodi” for just a month or two; however, some adamantly believe that she was carrying his child. The most dedicated believer is Mohamed Al Fayed, Dodi’s father, who spearheaded this conspiracy that Princess Diana was pregnant with his son’s child. Fayed believed that the possibility of an Egyptian Muslim becoming the stepfather to the future King of England was unpalatable to the Royal Family, so they killed off the problem.

The authenticity of the test was questioned, for his family, close friends, and Dodi’s father said that he was never an excessive drinker, doubting the results of the test as well; furthermore, Henri had passed his annual pilot’s physical examination three days before. Thus, the claim that Henri Paul was intoxicated became questionable by a way of knowing: Intuition, from the people who knew him
