Princess Diana 'Using Contraceptive Pills'

Princess Diana had contraceptive pills among her belongings in the weeks before she died, an inquest has heard.

Deborah Gribble, who was working as a stewardess on the Al Fayed family's yacht, said that she had spotted the pills while undertaking housekeeping duties during a cruise, which the couple took shortly before they died.

Dodi's father, Mohamed Al Fayed, has claimed that Diana was pregnant by his son, although several of Diana's close friends, including Lady Annabel Goldsmith, have said that Diana was not pregnant when she died.

The Princess and Dodi Al Fayed died in a car crash, along with their driver Henri Paul, in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel in Paris on August 31, 1997.
