Police investigating claim that member of British Army's special forces was involved in Princess Diana's death
On instructions from the highest level, Scotland Yard detectives are examining allegations that the British Army’s elite special forces regiment was involved in the Princess’s death in Paris nearly 16 years ago.
The astonishing claims came to light during the recent second court martial of Danny Nightingale, the former SAS sniper who was convicted of possessing an illegal firearm.

The new claims were made in a seven-page handwritten letter written by the parents of the estranged wife of “Soldier N”, a former member of the SAS who was a key prosecution witness at Sgt Nightingale’s trial.In September 2011 they wrote to the regiment’s commanding officer raising concerns about their son-in-law’s allegedly erratic and threatening behaviour.The letter, which was censored before being released to the court martial, states: "He [Soldier N] also told her [the daughter] that it was the XXX who arranged Princess Diana’s death and that has been covered up."So what chance do my daughter and I stand against his threats?"The woman’s parents also wrote of how Soldier N had told their daughter he could make her “disappear” and described his “killing escapades” while deployed with the SAS, Channel 4 News reported.
