RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that Princess Diana's corpse is not eternally interred at the quiet island publicly believed to be her final resting place, but inside a secret, heavily guarded crypt in a medieval church!

After three months on the ground in England, a team of RadarOnline.com investigators has exclusively learned Diana's body is interred in a lead-lined coffin alongside the cremated remains of her father inside St. Mary's Church — and not on the idyllic island on her family's nearby estate at Althorp Park where countless visitors pay tribute!

A six-foot, spiked iron fence and a series of high-tech motion detectors guard the chapel, supporting evidence that the crypt is the true location of the beloved royal's final resting place.

Lady Diana Spencer grew up on the sprawling, 13,500-acre property in central England, and hundreds of thousands of tourists have paid money to visit her grave there over the years. The mother of Princes William and Harry was just 36 when she died on Aug. 31, 1997, after her chauffeur-driven Mercedes-Benz smashed into a concrete pillar inside a Paris tunnel.

According to multiple sources, hush-hush arrangements were made at the time to inter the remains of the People's Princess at St. Mary's, where her family worshiped, in the village of Great Brington near Althorp Park. That fact has remained secret — until now!

Lance Taylor, who was a church warden at St. Mary's in 1997, confirmed the Spencer crypt, where Diana's ancestors have been interred for hundreds of years, was opened just shortly before her funeral! "It happened on the Wednesday before her funeral on the following Saturday," he spilled to Radar.

"The crypt hadn't been opened since Diana's father, John, died in 1992," said Taylor. "It had last been opened in the 1860s when it was found to be full of coffins. There are 18 generations of her family in the crypt, and it was decided to cremate those remains to make more room.

"When Diana died, the crypt was opened to check that there was enough room inside for her lead-lined coffin. Diana had specifically said in her will that she should be buried, not cremated. So the family was, of course, following her wishes," said the former church Warden.

Two employees at the Althorp Coaching Inn in Great Brington, which Diana visited as a young girl with her father, John, the 8th Earl Spencer, and brother, Charles, now the 9th Earl, confirmed the belief that Diana's body rests at St. Mary's Church.

"All the people living here are convinced Diana is buried at the church, and not on the Althorp estate," Jacqui Collins, the pub's manager for the past 10 years, told Radar. "All her family are buried at the church, including her father, so it makes sense for her to be buried there."

Sarah Viccars, an employee at the pub, added, "On the night before her funeral, the church was sealed off with temporary steel fencing and no one was allowed near it. There was also a power blackout in the village so it was pitch black. No one could see what was happening. Ever since, the talk has been that the crypt was opened up so Diana's coffin could be placed there in secret. There have never been any photos of her coffin being lowered into the island on the Althorp estate."

The Rev. Susan Kipling, the current vicar at St. Mary's, refused to comment. For a $23 fee, visitors gain access to Althorp Park, where they can pay their respects to Diana and view a memorial exhibition. A new memorial to the princess is currently being installed on the island, and will be unveiled when the estate reopens to the public on May 1 after its annual winter break.

A source at Althorp House said, "The church was considered as her burial place, but it made sense to have the island as the place where she is 'buried' because it is more secure and visitors can be more controlled. No one working on the estate now was at the funeral, so we all believe what we are told. It's just better that we keep our mouths shut!"
