Diana's death was unlawfulThe blame for the death of Princess Diana lies squarely on the shoulders of her driver and the pursuing paparazzi.

That is the judgement of the jury looking into the death of the Princess of Wales in 1997 on a Paris roadway.  The jury determined that the death was unlawful. They were deliberating since April 2 in a decision that has no true authority for enforcing laws.

Yet, by finding the chasing paparazzi and Diana’s driver Henri Paul, completely responsible, the ruling of an unlawful death is still powerful in placing blame somewhere for a public in need of its assigning. Although purely symbolic, there is now some closure.

Their findings, at the minimum, confirm that the French investigation was accurate in its blaming of the accident on driver Henri Paul and the camera-wielding paparazzi.

Lord Justice Scott Baker said that there was no evidence that any government agency was involved in the accident as Dodi al-Fayed’s father has claimed.
