‘Unlawful Killing’

An outrageous picture showing Princess Diana dying is set to go on show at the Cannes Film Festival in France. The photograph was reportedly captured moments after the tragic car crash which claimed the life of the late Princess of Wales.

The shocking photograph is part of a 90-minute documentary named "Unlawful Killing", which is directed by Keith Allen. The black and white close up image of Princess Diana was captured in 1997 shortly after her car had accident while crossing an underpass in Paris that resulted in the death of the princess.

The news about screening of the shocking photograph of Diana is making rounds on the internet. It should be noted that the upsetting paparazzi picture will be seen in the United Kingdom for the first time. Though the documentary has not been allowed screening in the UK, people will see the image via internet following the screening in France.

It should be noted that some photographs showing Princess Diana with a heavy pixilated face were made public during the probe into her death.

"The picture has been published in full before, in many parts of the world. We acquired the image from an Italian magazine, which had already published it in full. It is also widely available on the web ... We are therefore not publishing anything that the rest of the world has not already seen elsewhere," a spokesperson for the director of the documentary said.

According to reports, Mohammed al Fayed has sponsored the documentary since his son Dodi was also killed in the tragic accident. Fayed decided to sponsor the documentary in order to show the world the truth behind the death of his son and Princess Diana. However, it has been learnt that Fayed had never been informed that the outrageous pictures of dying Diana will be part of the documentary he was sponsoring.

"He is appalled by that and will be taking all necessary steps to make sure it is not in the film," a spokesperson for Fayed said. Meanwhile, Prince Harry and William have denied making remarks on the issue; however, sources at the royal palace state that both of them were disappointed.

According to one source, "they (the newlywed Prince William and his younger brother, Prince Harry) rather hope people would treat this with the contempt it deserves."

The documentary set to investigate the death of Princess Diana is set to debut this week at the Cannes Film Festival, which is scheduled to kick off on Wednesday. The decision was taken in the wake of British attorneys' resolution of binging 87 cuts to the documentary.

The documentary will also be screened in the United States and across the world, but not in the United Kingdom. However, the people of UK will watch the shocking picture of dying Princess Diana via the internet.

The documentary "Unlawful Killing" also includes discussions with Al-Fayed in addition to interviews of widely admired media people like Piers Morgan, Howard Stern and Kitty Kelley.
