Harry and Meghan’s Archewell boss owns rights to film saying Diana was murdered

The new head of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Archewell firm owns the rights to a lurid conspiracy theory movie that claims Princess Diana was murdered — and pregnant.

The Daily Mail reports that British film maker Ben Browning bought the rights to Inquest in 2013 while working at his former company, Wayfare Entertainment.

Browing was named head of Archewell Productions and Archewell Audio last week.

According to insiders, the plot of Inquest focuses on a fictional London lawyer called Michael Davies, who is hired by former Harrods boss Mohamed Al-Fayed to probe the death of his son Dodi – whom Diana was dating at the time of her death.

Both Diana and Dodi died in the 1997 Paris car crash, as did their drunk driver, Henri Paul.

The Mail reports that "the script suggests Al-Fayed believed they were murdered because they were engaged and the Queen 'did not want a Muslim in the Royal Family'".

The story sees the fictional lawyer make contact with Princess Diana’s former butler, Paul Burrell, who claims secret letters written by the Princess showed she feared that the Royal Family were conspiring to have her killed.

Despite it being eight years since he bought the script, it is still clearly visible on his IMDB Pro account – which is no surprise as it can take decades to get a film made, but it has surprised some people in the industry he didn't remove references to it in light of his new high profile job working for the Sussexes.

IMDB Pro is used by Hollywood agents and studio bosses, and is very much the 'Yellow Pages' of the film industry.

A source told the paper: "Ben bought the script in 2013 but the status of the project is unclear.

"It’s not unusual for a film to take years in development.

"What is interesting is that his IMDBPro page, something everyone in Hollywood uses as a resource for contact details or to see what projects someone has in development, has been updated to include his new job at Archewell.

"And it still mentions he is attached to Inquest as a producer."

Representatives for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been approached for comment.
