Fayed's bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones was the only survivor. Though at first in the media is attributed to the paparazzi, the crash was ultimately determined that the reckless actions of the driver, who was head of security at the Ritz and before the paparazzi waiting outside the hotel caused stimulated. An 18-month French judicial investigation concluded in 1999 that the crash of Henri Paul, the control of the car at high speed lost while have been worse under the influence of alcohol, made possible by the simultaneous presence of an anti-depressants caused tranqulizing and traces of anti-psychotic in his body.

Circumstances of Princess of Wales
On August 30, 1997, Diana, Princess of Wales arrived in Paris with Dodi Fayed, son of Mohamed al-Fayed. She was stopped on his way to London after the preceding nine days together on board Mohamed al-Fayed yacht, the Jonikal, in the French and Italian Riviera. She was planning to stay overnight. Mohamed al-Fayed was and is the owner of the Hotel Ritz in Paris. He also owned an apartment in the Rue Arsene Houssaye, not far away and near the Avenue des Champs Elysees.
Henri Paul, deputy head of security at the Ritz Hotel, has been appointed rented black 1994 Mercedes-Benz S280 drive through Paris to escape the paparazzi.  A decoy vehicle left the Ritz first draws a crowd of photographers. Diana and Fayed would then depart from the back of the hotel entrance.
At 12.20 on August 31, 1997, Diana and Fayed left the Ritz back in the Rue Arsene Houssaye in the apartment. They were the rear passengers in a black Mercedes-Benz S280, registration number "688 LTV 75", driven by Paul. Trevor Rees-Jones, a member of the Fayed family, personal protection team was in the passenger seat.
They left out the back of the hotel, which on the Rue Cambon.
As the victim lay in the wrecked car, the photographers continued to take pictures. Seriously injured Diana was reported repeatedly muttering, "Oh my God," and after the photographers were pushed by forces, "leave me alone. "
Dodi Fayed had been left in the passenger seat and appeared to be dead. Nevertheless, firefighters are still trying to revive him when he was pronounced dead by a doctor at 01.32 hours, Henri Paul was dead upon removal from the wreck said. Both were right on the Medico-legal Institute (IML), the Paris mortuary, not to a hospital. Autopsy determined that Paul and Fayed had both a fracture suffered in the isthmus of the aorta and a broken back, in the case of Paul, a medullar section in the dorsal region and in the case of Fayed a medullar section in the cervical region.
Diana, who was seated on the right rear passenger seat, was still conscious. It was first reported to be on the floor of the vehicle sat with his back to the road. It was also reported that a photographer who Diana described as her bleeding from the nose and ears, saw with his head on the back of the front passenger seat, rested, he tried to remove them from the vehicle, but their feet. When he told her that help was on the road and staying awake, there was no response from Diana, only to blink.
In June 2007, the Channel 4 documentary Diana: The Witnesses in the Tunnel claimed that the first person to touch Diana Dr. Maillez, the scene was arbitrary. He reported that Diana had no visible injuries but was in shock, and he delivers them with oxygen.
The first police patrol officers at the site at 12.30. Shortly after the Seven paparazzi were arrested at the scene. Diana is removed from the car at 1:00 pm She went to a cardiac arrest. After resuscitation begun outside the heart Beat Again Diana's. She moved to the SAMU ambulance The ambulance left the 01.18 hours of the accident site at 01.41 am and arrived at the Pitié Salpêtrière, 6.2 hours in spite of attempts to save her, her internal injuries too long: they had the heart was left to the right side of the chest, the pulmonary vein and the pericardium crack moves. Despite lengthy resuscitation attempts, including internal cardiac massage, she died at 4 o'clock in the morning. At 5:30, her death was announced at a press conference held by a hospital doctor, Jean-Pierre Chevenement, Interior Minister of France, and Sir Michael Jay, the British ambassador to France.
Many have speculated that if Diana had been wearing a seat belt, her injuries would be less significant. The first media reports stated that Trevor Rees-Jones are the only occupant seat belt was worn. These reports proved false, because both the French and British investigations concluded that none of the occupants of the car seat belt at the time of impact.
Later that morning, research, etc., together with French Prime Minister Lionel Jospin, Bernadette Chirac (wife of French President Jacques Chirac) and Bernard Kouchner (French Minister of Health), a visit to the hospital where Diana's body lay and paid the last honor. After their visit, said the Anglican Archbishop of France, Father Martin Draper, commendatory prayers from the Book of Common Prayer.
At 02.00 hours, Diana's ex-husband, Prince Charles, and two older sisters, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes, in Paris, she graduated with her body 90 minutes.
The first media reports stated Diana's car was in the column at 190 km per hour (120 mph) collided, and the speedometer needle was stuck in this position. It was later revealed, the actual vehicle speed at impact was approximately 95 to 110 kilometers per hour (60-70 mph), and the digital speedometer was in violation of the list of available devices and features of the Mercedes- Benz W140 S-Class, to a computer-controlled analog tachometer is used, no digital display for speed. Anyway, the car was safely on the road much faster than the legal speed limit of 50 kmh (31 mph) and faster than was prudent for the Alma tunnel. In 1999 the French study showed a Mercedes was in contact with another vehicle (a white Fiat Uno) are in the tunnel. The driver of that vehicle has never come forward and the vehicle itself has not been officially
Eighteen months of a French judicial investigation concluded in 1999 that the car accident that Diana was slain by Paul, the control of the car at high speed under the influence lost cause.
In October 2003, the Daily Mirror published a letter from Diana in the ten months before her death she wrote about a possible plot to kill her by tampering with the brakes of her car. "This particular phase in my life is the most dangerous." She said: "My husband is planning 'an accident' in my car, brake failure and serious head injury, so the path clear for Charles to marry".
On January 6, 2004, six years after her death, Fayed, an investigation into the deaths of Diana and Dodi in London by Michael Burgess, coroner of the Queen to open in the household. The coroner asked the then Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir John Stevens, to investigate the response to the speculation (see below), that death was no accident. The Metropolitan Police investigation reported their findings in the operation of Paget in December 2006.
Later in 2004, showed U. S. TV network CBS photographs from the crash site shows an intact rear side and an intact central part of the Mercedes, including Diana unbloodied no external injuries, crouched on the rear floor of the vehicle with her back on the right front passenger, rear right car door open fully. The publication of these pictures caused uproar in Britain, where it was generally felt that privacy was violated by Diana, and spurred another lawsuit by Mohammed al-Fayed.
In January 2006, Lord Stevens said in an interview on GMTV that the case is more complicated than previously thought. The Sunday Times reported on January 29, 2006, they were agents of the British Secret Service questioned because they were in Paris at the time of the accident. It was suggested in many magazines, that these funds could have replaced the driver's blood sample with another sample of blood (though no evidence ever for this to appear).
On 13 July 2006 Italian magazine Chi published a photograph of Diana did not appear in their "last moments" despite an unofficial blackout on such photographs. The photo was taken shortly after the crash and let the princess broke in the back seat while a paramedic attempts to fit an oxygen mask over her face. This picture was also published in other Italian and Spanish newspapers and magazines.
The editor of Chi defended his decision by saying that he published the photographs of French research papers for the "simple reason that they had not seen before," he was taken and the images do not disrespect the memory of the former princess .
Diana's death was met with extraordinary public expressions of grief, and her public funeral in Westminster Abbey on 6 September drew an estimated three million mourners and spectators in London and worldwide television broadcasts, the news of the death of the previous day overshadowed by Mother Teresa.
Members of the public were invited to sign a condolence book at the Palace of St. James's. During the night, combined to the members of the Women's Royal Voluntary Service and the Salvation Army, the support for the people queuing along the Mall to offer. More than one million bouquets of flowers at her London home, Kensington Palace remained, while her family was the estate of Althorp the public asked to stop, flowers, the volume of people and flowers in the surrounding streets, said that a threat to public safety issue.
Until 10 September started the pile of flowers outside Kensington Gardens 1.5 meters deep in places and the bottom layer of compost. The people were silent and waited patiently in line for the book to sign and leave their gifts. There were a few minor incidents. Fabio Piras, a Sardinian tourism was one week long prison sentence on 10 September given that they have a teddy bear in the pile. If the sentence was later reduced by a £ 100 fine Piras was beaten in the face by a member of the audience as he left court. The next day, Mary Rigociova, a 54-year-old high school teacher and Agnesa Sihelska, a 50-year communications technician, received a 28-per-day jail sentence for having a series of eleven teddy bears and flowers from the deck outside St . James' Palace. Again, this was later reduced to a fine (of £ 200 each), after two nights spent in prison.
Some have criticized the response to Diana's death at the time as "hysterical" and "irrational". As early as 1998, philosopher Anthony O'Hear identified blur the funeral as a key issue in the 'mondialisation sentiment of Great Britain ", a media-driven phenomenon in which image and reality. This criticism, which the 10th Anniversary, where the journalist Jonathan Freedland expressed the opinion that it is repeated. "It has become an embarrassing memory, like a sweet, self-pitying teenage entry in a diary. We crawl to think about it" In 2010, Theodore Dalrymple wrote "sentimentality, both spontaneous and generated by the excessive media attention, necessary for the death of the princess in an event of this magnitude in the series was a political goal, one by the nature was unfair to be one of dishonesty, which lies behind much sentimentality itself "parallels. Some cultural analysts disagree. Sociologist Deborah Steinberg noted that many Britons Diana associated not with the royal family, but with social change and a more liberal society: "I do not think the hysteria, the loss of a public figure is a touchstone for other problems to be."
