PRINCESS Diana Inquest: Anorak’s look at Princess Diana in the news

DAILY EXPRESS front page: “Fingers entwined, the last tender moments of Diana and Dodi”

Pages 2 and 3: “Intimacy that proves Diana was in love” – These are the “most intimate images ever seen of Diana”. They are more intimate than the images of her on a TV interview; more intimate than her photo sessions with Mario Testino; more intimate than the shots of her in a bikini…

Eight pictures of Diana and Dodi in a lift and reaching the ground floor

Page 4: “Were paparazzi given a tip-off by Henri Paul?” It is “suggested” that the driver told the snappers where to find Diana. It is a “dramatic twist”

DAILY MAIL front page: “Why did driver disappear hours before Diana died? MYSTERY OF THE MISSING EIGHT MINUTES”

Where did Henri Paul go for 8 ½ minutes? Blanket CCTV coverage of the Ritz Paris and no sign of him. Which begs the question: are their cameras in the toilet and the CCTV surveillance room?

Pages 2 and 3: “From chauffeur’s arrival to the moment Diana and Dodi made their break, the last night caught on CCTV” – There are 14 pictures of Diana and Dodi in a service lift and in the service area

Page 4: “Four key questions over the mysterious Mr Paul” – “Was he being the consummate professional” talking to paparazzi? “Or was it part of the murder conspiracy?”

Pages 6 and 7: “HENRI THE RAT. Sneaky signal to paparazzi”

Did Paul tip-off paparazzi that Diana was about to emerge? He waves to three snappers. He has 12,565 French Francs in his pocket

There are five pictures of Diana:

“THE CUDDLE” – Dodi outs his arm around Diana’s waist
“THE BRIEFING” – Paul says how they will leave the hotel
“THE SALUTE” – Diana raises an arm after Paul has ended his talk
“THE TIP-OFF” – Paul waves to paparazzi
“THE CROWD” – A crowd

And not forgetting:

“THE SWIMSUIT” – See past pictures of Diana

Page 27: “Let the lady lie” – Paul Routledge says the inquest is a “waste of time and money. Their time, your money”

Al Fayed is an “old man exploiting the justice system to pursue a personal fantasy”

THE SUN front page: “Di and Dodi’s tender hug”

Pages 4 and 5: “Did Paul get cash for Diana tip-offs? HE HAD £1,200 IN POCKET”

DAILY STAR front page: “Diana and Dodi’s last tragic kiss” – the Star is judgemental


“The final embrace” – “The setting is not romantic – it was the rear service entrance of the hotel – but their body language oozes pure chemistry”

THE TIMES page 16: “Mick Hume looks at “Diana’s death – the lizard theory”

Conspiracy theorists and the celebrity princess’s ten-year-old drink-driving accident. It is a “morbid melodrama”

Pages 26 and 27: “Touching intimacy as Diana waits to dodge paparazzi on her last ride”

Diana “inclines her blonde hair to the left; Dodi, nuzzling up to her, grasps her left hand folded round her back and occasionally strokes the base of her spine”

Mick Hume is right. But no worry. After all, tomorrow is another day!

THE INDEPENDENT pages 6 and 7: “CCTV footage suggests Henri Paul tipped off paparazzi about Diana’s movements”

DAILY TELEGRAPH front page: “The last embrace: jury shown CCTV footage of Diana and Dodi”

Pages 8 and 9: “Laughter and a touching embrace before Diana and Dodi leave on their last journey”

Diana “giggled” and put her hand up to her face while he broke into a smile

THE GUARDIAN no Diana death news
