"A journalist colleague worked for years to write articles about the campaign against anti-personnel landmines. I, too, reported on the issue,
writing stories about African amputees caused by the indiscriminate use of anti-personnel landmines that remained hidden and deadly across wide
swathes of territory, long after the conflicts ended. Our articles never got the kind of placement in the media that we felt they deserved.
Then Princess Diana went to Angola in January 1997. Iconic images of her walking through landmine areas and sitting with young amputees were on the
front pages of every newspaper in the world and were beamed by every television network. She made an impassioned statement against anti-personnel
landmines and urged all responsible governments to stop using them, producing them and selling them.
Single-handedly Diana made the anti-landmine campaign a hot topic.
Her views went against official British policy and top defense officials denounced Diana as a “loose cannon” and dismissed her as
“ill-informed” on the issue of anti-personnel landmines. It was a standoff between the British defense ministry and the princess."
Now, I'm about 90% sure she was NOT assassinated, but there certainly was reason to be suspicious, and you can find lots of articles like this:
Diana death 'linked to arms trade' says QC
"Diana was perhaps most famous for her campaign for a ban on the sale and use of landmines. Was she unaware that the arms trade is the single most
important industry in the UK economy? A princess is supposed to act as an ambassador for her country, but Diana's popularity and agenda became an
increasing threat to British national interests. Now Diana presents no risk at all because she is dead."
