Sound And Fury Signifying Nothing

Once again the British and the French have come out to tell all sane and sensible people what they already know - The Princess of Wales died in a car accident in 1997, and not murdered in some JFK-esque elaborate conspiracy theory.

Still sad, mad, Mohammed Al-Fayed, owner of Harrods, continues his delusion, offering this mean piece of 'evidence':

Mr Fayed also authorised an exclusive jeweller to release a video which it said showed Dodi picking up an engagement ring for Diana, just hours before both died in the car crash.

The jewellery company Repossi said it was making the images available after receiving authorisation from Mohammed Al-Fayed.

The washed-out, black-and-white video, which was timestamped August 30, 1997, showed a man resembling Dodi Fayed entering Repossi's upscale Place Vendome boutique in central Paris, which neighbours the Ritz Hotel owned by Mohammed Al-Fayed.

The man stayed a total of seven minutes. During that time he can be seen examining items of jewellery pulled out of a case and placed on a table. At the end of his visit, he seems to pick something up off a table and then leaves.
Seven minutes to pick out an engagement ring?

Seven minutes to pick out a rock to eclipse her iconic sapphire and diamond ring?

Any woman will tell you that if her fiance was so perfunctory in his selection, it wouldn't bode well for the longevity of the relationship.

Let them rest in peace Al-Fayed, the world's moved on and you should too.
