The Crown fact-checked over those Princess Diana and Dodi kiss photos | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV

Did Mohammed really organise a photographer to take photos of Dodi and Diana?

In an exclusive interview with Daily Express, royal author and expert Marlene Koenig said: “Somebody had to call the press.”

She continued: “There’s no doubt. How did the press find out about being in the yacht?

“My feeling is that [Diana] was great for calling the press and there were reports that she alerted them to where she would be.”

Reflecting on whether Mohamed was the one behind calling the press, Koenig said: “I would not be surprised.

“But once a photographer gets on your tail – and believe me, the European paparazzi have networks here and there. They’re really good at getting photos.

“So, it would not be a surprise if he was involved in but I don’t know anything about that at all.”

Koenig said reports from the time suggested Princess Diana may have called the press in a bid to get her ex-boyfriend and heart surgeon Hasnat Khan’s (Humayun Saeed) attention.

Khan and the princess’ romances had hit an impasse given the media circus surrounding her and the reserved medic’s desire to remain fairly private.

However, she was still very much in love with him and wanted to win him back.

Other reports from the time have suggested Italian photographer Brenna had been on another assignment at the time when he caught wind of the romance.

He ended up snapping the shots of the royal with the playboy which he later sold to the Sunday Mirror and other publications around the world and made millions from the images.
