It's been 10 and a-half years since Britain's Princess Diana and companion Dodi Fayed were killed in a car crash in Paris.

And a British inquest is about to rule on the circumstances.

The coroner who's been leading the six-month-long probe said today there is no evidence the British government was in any way involved.

Fayed's father, wealthy businessman Mohamed Al Fayed, has long contended the couple was killed in a plot orchestrated by Diana's ex-father-in-law Prince Philip and carried out by British intelligence.

The coroner, Lord Justice Scott Baker, says that did not happen. He told jurors today that they must rule the wreck was an accident and, at most, that there was gross negligence on the part of photographers who were chasing the car.

Separate investigations by French and British police both concluded Diana's death was an accident, caused in part by high speed and an intoxicated driver.
