When Diana predicted her tragic end in a car accident... two years before her death


As Lady Diana lost her life in a car accident twenty-five years ago, the documentary The Diana Investigations looks back at the premonition of the princess who would appear on a mysterious note.

Twenty-five years after her tragic death on August 31, 1997 in a car accident in Paris, the legend Lady Diana is more vibrant than ever.

Among the many documentaries devoted to him, the series

The Diana Investigations

, broadcast by Discovery + from August 18, evokes at length a prescient and frightening revelation: the “Mishcon note”.

The mother of princes William and Harry would have predicted, two years before his tragic end, that she would suffer a road accident.

It all dates back to October 1995, when Diana requested a private meeting with her legal adviser, Victor Mishcon, allegedly to "talk to him about something that was bothering her", as reported by The

Daily Beast

, which had access to the first preview footage from the documentary.

As their conversation progressed, Diana Spencer reportedly told Mishcon that “reliable sources” – whom she did not want to name – informed her “that a car accident could be staged”.

And Diana to predict that she “would eventually die or be seriously injured”.

Premonitory notes

Two years later, the worst happens.

Lady Diana and her then-companion, Dodi Al-Fayed, and her driver, Henri Paul, died after their Mercedes hit a pillar in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel in Paris.

According to the documentary's experts, Mishcon handed the note of his meeting with Lady Di to then Commissioner of London's Metropolitan Police, Sir Paul Condon.

It was not until Condon's successor, John Stevens, took office that the public became aware of the existence of the note, as Condon had locked it away in a safe.

“When the public officer sent by the crown announced his inquiry, I ensured that this letter was immediately given to the royal public officer, who at the time was Michael Burgess and later became Lord Justice Scott Baker,” Lord Stevens told The

Daily Beast


"I saw Lord Mishcon about a month before he died, around the spring of 2005, and he maintained that he thought [Diana] was paranoid, and that he hadn't given much credit to [ Note]."

A second letter, allegedly written by Diana in October 1996, two months after her divorce from Prince Charles, echoed a similar premonition.
