Princess Diana’s last words have been revealed by the fire sergeant who allegedly held her hand at the crash scene.
In a new podcast series by the Daily Mail, details surrounding Princess Diana’s last few days, as well as about her tragic death, have been revealed.
Of course, we already know that the people’s Princess was trying to flee the Ritz hotel in Paris with her boyfriend at the time, Dodi Fayed. They both left via the back of the building in order to avoid being caught by the paparazzi who were swarming around the area.
They got into their car along with their driver, Henri Paul, and their bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones.
However, their plan did not work as well as they hoped and the paparazzi caught them as they entered their Mercedes.
“Don’t try to follow us; in any case, you won’t catch us,” Paul allegedly says before they take off.
At approximately 12:20 AM, they were pursued down the streets of Paris.
”They are pursued along the Rue Cambon to the junction with Rue de Rivoli, where Paul turns right into the Place de la Concorde. Then they enter the Cours la Reine, which runs along the Seine embankment, accelerating.
“Now they are passing under the approach to the Pont Alexandre III but the speeding Mercedes fails to — perhaps cannot — take an exit slip road that offers the most direct route to their destination. And so it continues along the riverbank, pursued by paparazzi, towards the next bridge, the Pont de l’Alma. At this point, a number of disputed factors that will launch a myriad theories and investigations come together,” Richard Pendlebury and Stephen Wright wrote for the outlet.
Then, catastrophe strikes as the princess’s vehicle collide with a white Fiat Uno and it’s safe to say, the driver immediately loses control as the car smashes into the 13th pillar of the tunnel at approximately sixty-five MPH.
The impact of the crash kills Paul and Fayed straight away but Rees-Jones and Princess Diana are still alive but critically injured. No one in the vehicle was wearing a seatbelt.
The first responders at the scene included an off-duty doctor Frederic Mailliez, who said he had no idea who was in the vehicle as he called the emergency services.
Firefighter Xavier Gourmelon was next on the scene and he revealed that Diana was “moving and talking” when he arrived.
Gourmelon said he stayed with the “female passenger” and “tried to calm her.”
He said: “She spoke in English and said: ‘Oh my God, what’s happened?’ I could understand that, so I tried to calm her. I held her hand. Then others took over.”
It was also revealed that externally, there didn’t seem to be much wrong with the princess, but internally, she had sustained some serious damage. When she was taken to the hospital, she suffered a cardiac arrest and internal bleeding and died shortly after.
The re-analysis of Diana’s final words comes just a few days before what would have been the princess’s 60th birthday on July 1st.
Her sons, Princes William and Prince Harry, are due to unveil a statue in her honor later next month.
Rest in Peace, Lady Diana.
