The Diana inquest was rocked today when Paul Burrell continued his revelations about the last few days of Diana's life.
Burrell maintains that Diana had been offered, and had accepted, a place in the Spice Girls as the new Posh. She had been approached by Sporty, Ginger, Scary and Baby without the knowledge of Victoria - the incumbent of the much desired Posh slot at the time.
According to the latest twist, Victoria learned late in the day of this attempt to overthrow her and drove immediately to Buckingham Palace to tell Prince Philip that Diana was going to marry Dodi Fayed.
Asked whether her conversation with the Queen's husband was a contributing factor in the tragedy, Burrell told the inquest: "It is all a bit too convenient for Victoria that the crash happened and she kept her place in the group - something of course her husband couldn't do in the England, Manchester United or Real Madrid teams."
