22 years later, and the conspiracy theories regarding Princess Diana’s death haven’t gone away. The theory about Princess Diana being pregnant with her then-boyfriend Dodi Fayed has been made after some people took a closer look at the comment she made prior to her death.
Mohamed Al-Fayed, Dodi Fayer’s father, said how the two were supposed to get engaged, and how she was pregnant at the time. Theorist said how the British secret services and the royal family were against their relationship. Professor Angela Gallop dismissed the rumors about the pregnancy in her investigation documented in her book When The Dogs Don’t Bark: A Forensic Scientist’s Search for the Truth. There was a blood sample collected from Princess Diana after the car crash in 1997, and her blood sample tested negative for the pregnancy hormone hCG. This level of hCG occurs 11 days after contraception and they usually double 72 hours after. Gallop stated in her book, “In the end, the results of all the tests were negative. Which meant it was extremely likely that Diana was not pregnant at the time of her death, and that she had not been taking contraceptive pills.”
However, conspiracy theorists are not convinced. They think that the embalming of Princess Diana’s body happened too fast, and with that, the urine pregnancy test couldn’t have been possible. Medical experts didn’t see a reason to postpone the embalming, and a urine pregnancy test is not a standard procedure done on deceased women.
