London - (Reuterus): Is a secret High Court super-injunction gagging plans to exhume Princess Diana's grave at Althorp?
Frantic legal moves in the last 24 hours have seen the Human Frights Act invoked to protect the Spencer family's privacy.
At the core of the dilemma are claims 'that more than one Lady Di' is buried on an island on The Oval - an ornamental lake within Althorp Park's Pleasure Garden.
Defamation lawyers have moved swiftly following a leak from Buckingham Palace 'that an exhumation is inevitable' once the Queen pops her clogs.
Such news is music to Mohammed Fayed's ears, of course, - not to mention the legion of red top reporters currently saddled with Premiership players' sordid shagging capers.
A previously lucrative market for Diana conspiracy theories has experienced a drought of late, making this latest Princess Di development an interesting proposition.
However, UK tabloids have already undertaken not to spill the beans about the results of a private investigator's use of high tech imaging equipment that scoured the island grave site from a helicopter.
"This could bring down the government - and civilization as we know it!" a leading libel lawyer said last night.
Charles Spencer is 69.
