Diana Crash: New Twist
Robert Jobson - London Evening Standard June 25, 2004
The security services forced Princess
Diana to abandon plans for a holiday in America weeks before she died,
it is revealed today.
The block on her travel plans meant that instead she
took a summer break with Mohamed al-Fayed. This ultimately
led to her going to Paris with his son Dodi, where they died.
British or US intelligence had forced Diana to change
her plans to stay with American billionaire Teddy Forstmann in the summer
of 1997, saying it was too dangerous to take her sons there, it is claimed.
The revelation that the princess would probably still
be alive today if the security services had not intervened is bound to
raise fresh questions about conspiracy theories.
The claims are made by author Andrew Morton in his new
book, Diana: In Pursuit Of Love. Mohamed al-Fayed has always insisted
that Diana and Dodi were murdered in a plot involving MI6 agents and US
Morton writes: "Diana was looking forward to a week's
holiday with the two young men who had never let her down and whom she
loved unconditionally, William and Harry."
Morton, with whom the princess cooperated on his bestseller
Diana: Her True Story, says she had accepted an invitation from "one-
time American boyfriend" Mr Forstmann to stay with him at his house
in the Hamptons. But as she was travelling with the princes,
"she needed security clearance".
He writes: "In what turned out to be a tragic twist
of fate, the security services - Forstmann's friends are not sure whether
it was the American or the British side - vetoed Diana's holiday plans. They
had doubts about the security surrounding the billionaire's hideaways
or perhaps a possible threat from elsewhere.
"Ironically the decision by the security services,
perhaps more than any of their perceived plotting in Paris, was what led
to Diana being in Paris on 31 August." Scotland Yard detectives carrying
out an inquiry into Diana's death are planning to interview Morton over
the new claims.
Morton also claims that Princess Diana leaked the Duchess
of York's divorce plans in an attempt to stop bad press about herself.
He says Diana betrayed Fergie in February 1992 because
she was anxious that a book by Lady Colin Campbell hinted she was to blame
for the collapse of her marriage to Charles.
Morton suggested that the only thing to keep the princess
off the front pages would be an even bigger story - and she "instantly
provided the blockbuster story we required".
He added: "She had recently learned that Fergie
had visited the Queen to talk about a separation from Prince Andrew.
After much discussion the Queen had agreed that a separation was the best
