French authorities are spending millions every year on “covering up” the truth about Princess Diana’s death.

Court bosses in Paris station round-the-clock armed guards outside the underground vault that holds at least 6,000 pages of files related to her death, which will be shut away for 75 years.

A Paris-based security source with intimate knowledge of how the dossier is being shielded from the eyes of the public broke cover last night.

They told the Daily Star Sunday: “These files will not be made available for inspection for decades.

“Prince Charles and his sons – and the British people – will be long gone by the time they are released.”

The insider added the mass of documents – standing almost a metre high – were recently moved to a basement archive “in the Paris area” and are under 24-hour armed guard.

They said: “The documents contain information about the activities of French investigators after Di’s death.”

They also contain interviews of subjects carried out “in camera” – in other words, in secret. The Diana documents are stored under part of a “heritage code” that states certain French
national archives should be shielded from public view for at least 75 years from their completion date.

As the file was finished in 2007, it means they may not be seen until 2082.

But this week we learned authorities have reserved the right to review whether to release the files after that – meaning they may never be seen.

Our source said: “This is comparable to the refusal to release files relating to cases like the JFK assassination. And even when such files are released, they are usually redacted.

“It seems the French don’t even have the intention of releasing these documents.”

The Palais de Justice said: “The investigation file is placed in the archives of the Paris Court of Appeal. It cannot be consulted before the expiration of a period of 75 years.”

A UK inquiry blamed the deaths of Diana, 36, and her lover Dodi Al Fayed, 42, on grossly negligent driving by pursuing paparazzi and Dodi’s chauffeur Henri Paul, 41, who also died in the smash, 25 years ago on Wednesday.
