12. The Royal Family Killed Princess Diana
More than 20 years ago, Princess Diana died in a car crash as she was being hunted by the paparazzi. To this day, some people still believe that her death wasn’t an accident and that it was ordered by the British royal family. Diana’s own letters contributed to this conspiracy as in one she suggested that Prince Charles was planning to kill her. “I am sitting here at my desk today in October, longing for someone to hug me and encourage me to keep strong and hold my head high,” she wrote. “This particular phase in my life is the most dangerous – my husband is planning ‘an accident’ in my car, brake failure and serious head injury.” After the car accident, Queen Elizabeth is said to have remarked that somebody may have “greased her brakes,” which only added fuel to the fire. Conspiracy theorists believe that the motive for the murder was to prevent Diana from marrying Dodi Fayed because he was a Muslim.
