Princess Diana’s death rocked the entire nation over two decades ago. But according to a detective, the scene of the late royal’s car accident didn’t look like a textbook crime scene or any crime scene for that matter. Rather, it looked like a disaster.

While speaking on “Dr. Phil,” homicide detective Colin McLaren said that what he saw when he turned on the television was exactly what lecture detectives are told not to do.

McLaren also teamed up with fellow homicide detective Dylan Howard in writing the book “Diana: Case Solved: The Definitive Account That Proves What Really Happened.” In the book, the detectives said that Prince Charles cannot possibly be blamed for Princess Diana accident. The detectives also said that the paparazzi cannot be blamed for the accident.

“Our new research has shown that the paparazzi were not to blame in Diana’s death and that it was instead a case of someone being in the wrong place at the wrong time. We have found that on the night of her death, the $123,000 Mercedes that carried Diana and others was capable of easily out-accelerating every single vehicle that the members of the paparazzi were driving,” they said.

“In short, there was no neck-and-neck chase, as such a thing was an impossibility. The mass of photographers could not have kept up with her car. Period,” they added.

But it has also been revealed that on the night of Princess Diana’s accident, a worried Prince Charles phoned Camilla Parker Bowles to inform her what had happened. At first, the royal couple thought that the Princess of Wales suffered injuries but was still alive.

When they found out that the mom of two already passed away, the heir to the throne expressed his worries to Camilla. He said that he’s certain the public would blame him for his ex-wife’s death. And according to a royal expert, that’s exactly what happened.
