Pathologist who examined Princess Diana’s body reveals bizarre questions people asked him (msn.com)

Dr. Richard Shepherd, a renowned forensic pathologist, has examined over 23,000 dead bodies throughout his career, including that of Princess Diana. He re-examined the late princess’s body as part of the official inquiry into her death in a car crash in Paris two decades ago.

In the wake of conducting a second autopsy on Princess Diana’s body, Dr. Shepherd was asked some unusual questions about her appearance. People inquired whether she had been beautiful, peaceful, or pregnant. Regarding these questions, Dr. Shepherd recalled, “I always made sure I never said anything — in all the cases of public interest I was involved with — that hadn’t already appeared in the Press.”

From a pathological perspective, there was no evidence to suggest that Princess Diana was pregnant. However, some women claim to know they are pregnant from the moment of conception, leaving room for speculation.

Dr. Shepherd also commented that Princess Diana might have survived the car crash if she had worn her seatbelt. He believes that if she had taken this precaution, she would have emerged from the Pont de l’Alma road tunnel with minor injuries, possibly just a black eye or a broken arm. Unfortunately, the crash resulted in the deaths of Diana, her lover Dodi Fayed, and their driver Henri Paul, who was found to be intoxicated at the time. The sole survivor was their bodyguard, Trevor Rees.

Official inquiries later determined that Diana and Dodi’s deaths were the result of an accident caused by their drunk driver and paparazzi who were tailing their car on motorbikes. The jury at Diana’s inquest ruled that they were unlawfully killed due to “gross negligence” on the part of Henri and the paparazzi.

His interest in forensic pathology began during his school days, leading him to become one of the world’s leading experts in the field.
