Ken Wharfe, the Princess's former Metropolitan Police bodyguard, told The Daily Telegraph: "If these parents were so concerned that this information was relevant or had some general import, then they should have delivered it to the inquest.

"Why has it taken so long to air this new information? It seems so shallow to me. I just think it's a bit of a publicity stunt.

"For what reason I'm not certain, but in the absence of any real evidence, I'm sure this will go away."

It is claimed that one of the pieces of evidence put before the court was a seven-page letter written by the parents in-law of another SAS operative, known only as 'Soldier N'.

The letter, which was allegedly sent to the commanding officer of the elite unit, is said to claim that Soldier N boasted that the SAS "was behind Princess Diana's death".

Danny Nightingale was found guilty of illegally possessing a gun and ammunition by a court martial board in July 2013.

Ex-Head of Royal Protection 'mystified' by new info

A former Head of Royal Protection, Dai Davies, has said he is "mystified" by today's announcement of new information relating to the deaths of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed.

He told ITV News that the deaths were "an accident by any definition, and three separate inquiries ... have come to the same independent conclusion."

"I am absolutely convinced this was an accident so I'm mystified, after 13 years, how any new information can possibly allege anything other than [that] this was a tragic accident."
