Scotland Yard provided no more information, but in a statement said that "the assessment will be carried out by officers from the specialist crime and operations command" to access the new information's "relevance and credibility."

Prince William and Harry's mother, Princess Diana, was unlawfully killed at the age of 36 alongside billionaire playboy Fayed, 42, in a Paris car crash in 1997 during a paparazzi chase. The accident was previously investigated by Lord Justice Scott Baker in 2007, but was concluded in 2008 as an "unlawful killing, grossly negligent driving of the following vehicles and of the Mercedes."

Since 1997, there has been several conspiracy theories surrounding Princess Diana's death. Fayed's father, Mohamed al-Fayed, has also been previously vocal about reopening the case.
