As a new documentary about Princess Diana’s relationship with the media premiered on HBO on Saturday, Prince Harry appears to be researching his mother’s death in Paris, presumably for his upcoming memoir.

Sources from Paris, France claim that Harry’s researchers have been in touch with the local government asking for more information about the investigation around his mother Diana’s death in Pont d’Alma in 1997, according to the Daily Beast.

“There have been approaches which suggest Prince Harry is intensely focused on getting more information about his mother’s death. There are plenty of people in France who recall the night of the accident. It’s only normal that Diana’s son should want to learn more about it for his book,” a source close to the matter said.

Some of the things that he appears to be looking into are the potential alternative reasons for her death, including the car crash being a potential assassination, something that Diana’s former bodyguard Lee Sansum has harped on during a recent interview.

“I believe that security officers following Diana, possibly British or a combined British–French team, may have either inadvertently caused the crash or were in close proximity to the car when it happened,” he said.

It is unclear as to why Harry would be researching his mother’s death so closely for his memoir. Some, like HBO documentarian Ed Perkins, have drawn parallels between his life and his mother’s and how the media reacted to their choices, People reported.

“For a space of about a month or two, it seemed like [Harry and Meghan] were the only thing people were talking about,” Perkins said. “Very few people were apathetic and it reminded me of the response I was seeing in the archive from 25, 30 years previously, where, for the entirety of Diana's public life, we were dissecting everything.”

“This trauma happened when the building blocks for life were being formulated. His mother saw America as a place of sanctuary. He will be drawing on his experiences from then,” Sansum said.

Harry’s memoir is reportedly hitting shelves by the end of the year.
