London, Mar 31 : The inquest into the death of Princess Diana is in its last stages, as the coroner in charge is all set to begin his summing up to the jury.

The coroner Lord Justice Scott Baker will be narrating the key evidence heard at the central London hearing, while addressing an 11-person jury, reports the Daily Express.

The jury has heard testimonies for six months and is expected to consider its verdicts after the summing up.

They have heard evidence from over 250 witnesses, which also include those who have testified from abroad and, in the case of secret service agents, anonymously in a closed court.

Diana, her lover Dodi Fayed and driver Henri Paul were killed in a car crash in Paris in August 1997.

According to Dodi's father and Harrods tycoon Mohamed al Fayed, it was MI6, which murdered the couple on the orders of the Duke of Edinburgh, to prevent Diana from getting pregnant with Dodi's child.
