According to the Daily Beast, Princess Diana predicted she would die in the Paris car crash that took her life in 1997 at the age of 36.
The late royal member allegedly met with her personal legal advisor, Victor Mischon, in 1995 to “tell him about something that was on her mind,” and he took notes from the conversation in what became known as the “Mischon Note.”
Diana allegedly stated during the meeting that “reliable sources,” whom she did not name, told her that “a car accident might be staged” and she would “either end up dead or seriously injured.”
The Diana Investigations, a Discovery+ docuseries premiering on August 18, will go into greater detail about the shocking revelation. The series (trailer below) delves into the shocking crash, which also claimed the lives of Diana’s partner, Dodi Al-Fayed, and her driver, Henri Paul, as well as the aftermath.
Henri slammed their Mercedes into a pillar at 65 mph in Paris’ Pont de l’Alma tunnel while attempting to flee paparazzi on motorcycles behind them.
The note from his meeting with Diana, according to experts in the docuseries, was given to London’s Metropolitan Police commissioner, Sir Paul Condon, at the time of the accident. The public learned about the note after Condon’s successor, John Stevens, took over because Condon allegedly locked it in a safe.
“When the coroner announced his inquest, I made sure that letter was immediately given to the royal coroner, who was Michael Burgess at the time and then subsequently became Lord Justice Scott Baker,” Lord Stevens told the Daily Beast.
“I saw Lord Mishcon about a month before he died, in about the spring of 2005, and he held a course to the fact that he thought [Diana] was paranoid, and he hadn’t held much credence to [the note],” he added.
The note revealed in the highly anticipated docuseries is one of two alleged pieces of writing in which Diana predicted the impending crash. The second letter, allegedly written by her after her divorce from Prince Charles in 1996, contained similar information. It was published in 2003 by Diana’s butler, Paul Burrell, in his book, A Royal Duty.
