Skip to comments.Live and let Di? ... Mark Steyn
Posted on 10/08/2007 8:00:54 AM PDT by Rummyfan
Last week, a London court began pondering the vexed question of whether Diana, Princess of Wales was, ahem, murdered. There was so much public suspicion, declared the coroner, Lord Justice Scott Baker, that it was time for the rumors to be either "dispelled or substantiated."
So who killed her? On the night of Diana's death, there were apparently two top agents for MI6, the British secret service, on the loose in Paris, and possibly a third, if you believe Henri Paul, the chauffeur, was also on the spooks' payroll. That's the theory of Mohammed Fayed, Messr. Paul's employer and father of the princess' last boyfriend Dodi. Mr. Fayed asserts Diana at the time of her death was carrying Dodi's baby, and thus the car crash was arranged because Buckingham Palace decided it would be unacceptable for Prince William, the future king, to have a Muslim step-brother, a Muslim stepdad, and a soon-to-be-Muslim mom.

Steyn, excellent as always!
I never became ‘enthralled’ with this woman. I found her to be naive, and more bimbo than Princess. Events proved I was correct in my original assessment.

Ditto....a slut is a slut is a slut.
No denying she gave birth to the riding instructor’s son.
I don't really care about Di one way or another, but that is rather harsh, don't you think?
It seems lately that "whore" and "slut" are the favorite go to insults around FR these days.
Thanks for posting this because I am looking for an opportunity to go on a rant. while I’m at it, I’ll alienate all the Princess Di fans, which I was oncit upon a time.
Princess Di was a vapid, naive child when she married a man who was marrying her only for her to bear his sons. She knew Charles, who would be a used car salesman in another life, loved Camilla and she had to know. She even lamented, in one or another of her interviews, that there were “three” in that marriage.
When Charles threw her over the bow Diana loved the limelight into which she was thrust and, frankly, who could blame her? Sure we can go into loves lost, soul mates and happiness in disguise but on the surface, Princess Di had it all.
It was DIANA herself who called those paparazzi to tell them where she would be. This is no secret except maybe to the babes in the beauty parlor. All celebrities do this. They phone up their fave photog and tell him that he or she will be a nightclub at such and such a time. Diana worked overtime on her Dodi Fayed gig as she was in her glory, travelling the world, swimming off of fancy yachts with handsome but very dopey Muslim playboys, all for the royal family to see. Hey, I’m a wommin. If I was Diana I’d have been doing the same thing.
Diana no more loved and was bearing the child of Dodi Fayed than I love and would have sex with Harry Reid. It was all a game....like Shakespeare calls ...all the world being a stage and that.
Dodi’s dad will likely spend the rest of his mortal breaths milking this for all its worth. This may surprise some folk, but Muslims are notorious for lying and deceiving the world on a public stage. They’re way better than the Americans are at it.
I mean come on! It’s been TEN YEARS!
She died in a car crash.
Honestly, I’m more amused than anything, it’s so cute.
No, trashing women and wanting to repeal the 19th amendment have become poplar on this forum of late.
What he doesn’t mention, because this column would be as long as a book, is the extent to which the social-climbing, victimization-claiming Mohammed Fayed went to get his son “together” with her, especially considering the son was engaged to another woman at the time this all started. The father laid a trap and both of them fell into it, and tragedy resulted. It is an opera plot. One of the few who has behaved honorably in the whole deal is Prince Phillip who, when accused publicly of murdering his daughter-in-law, has kept a dignified silence. She behaved shamefully. She knew what she was getting into when she married Charles, and she knew the rules: you can do anything you want as long as you don’t do it in the street and startle the horses. She did it in the street and startled the horses.
I really wish conservative men would stop doing this.
I’m glad to see others speaking up about it. It’s an insult to women and why do it?
But damn, if you say something they start posting pics of ugly wommin saying they are you.....they start implying you’re too ugly to get a man....
Ah well...moving on. Women are the last to defend themselves. It’s not in their nature.
Calling names only makes a person look childish.
It's amazing how well two-words can sum up an entire segment of society.
National Review's David Pryce-Jones made the point that, in persisting with his lurid accusations, Mohammed Fayed revealed how little he understands Britain: He has lived there for years, it has been good to him, he owns Harrod's and the Paris Ritz and various other baubles. No big deal. He is one of many, many beneficiaries of Western openness to "the other." And yet he has convinced himself that Buckingham Palace is so consumed by "Islamophobia" that the Queen's husband dialed M, and M called in Moneypenny, and Moneypenny faxed 007, and a week later the Princess and her Islamostud are dead.
Besides always being right, Steyn has a wonderful rhetorical flair. Too funny.
Lacking that, there are only insults. The last resort of the hateful type.
The sniper from the grassy knoll?
What? You are not attracted to Harry Reid???
Thank goodness - I thought I was the only one who disliked this woman intensely. The way she b*****ed and moaned about her “privacy” and being harassed by photogs. What happened to that “retirement” she was supposed to be entering? She couldnt STAND to be outside the spotlight.
