Princess Diana was "obsessed" with the idea Prince Charles wanted her murdered, according to a sensational new claim.
The claim has emerged in bombshell evidence given to the inquiry into Diana's interview with Martin Bashir for the BBC.
Diana, who tragically died in 1997 following a car accident at the age of 36, sat down with Martin for the shocking interview in 1995, with an enquiry now being opened into how he managed to secure the interview.
Retired Supreme Court judge Lord Dyson has interviewed 17 witnesses for the probe into the broadcaster with it now appearing that Diana was "convinced" at the time husband Prince Charles was having an affair with royal nanny Tiggy Legge-Bourke.
