London: People have been trying to steal or dig up Princess Diana’s buried body, her brother has revealed.

Earl Spencer said there had been four attempted break-ins at the grave site since the Princess was buried in the grounds of the family’s Althorp estate in 1997.

He told Radio 4’s Today programme: “We have had four attempted break-ins towards her body in the last 20 years. I am very glad that we have seen all of them off. Keeping her right here (at Althorp) is the safest place.”

Spencer, 53, did not suggest motives for those trying to break in to the grave site.

It is possible that some break-ins may have been by eccentric fans trying to investigate conspiracy theories that Diana was not actually buried on the island in the lake in the grounds of Althorp in Northamptonshire.

There have been persistent suggestions, none backed by credible evidence, that Diana was quietly buried at a secret location, or cremated with her ashes interred in the family chapel at the church of St Mary the Virgin with St John in the nearby village of Great Brington.

This is despite the fact that, as Spencer confirmed in his radio interview, Diana never wanted to be cremated. – The Independent
