Is this the ghost of Princess Diana?

Diana

Who doesn’t like a good ghost story?

Here’s one that’ll send shivers down your spine … or not.

Some Chinese tourists visiting Scotland and wandered into a church in Glasgow. They naturally did the tourist-y thing of making very bad video (below), panning around the church’s interior. They go home, re-run their vacation video and, lo and behold (cue the organ), they see a familiar image in one of the stained glass windows.

Could that be Princess Diana, tiara and all, striking a modest pose? Well, no. But lets not that stand in the way of a good story.

The out-of-focus video winds up in the hands of paranormal writer Michael Cohen, who appropriately sees what he’d like everyone to see.

“It might be a bizarre optical illusion, but then again, it could be a ghost -- possibly Princess Diana's,” said Cohen.

“Ghosts often appear in places connected to their lives and families. Ghosts might appear to warn individuals, groups and even entire nations of possible impending danger.”

Hey, Diana’s mother spent her last years in Scotland … that’s gotta be it. Even if the two were on barely speaking terms before Diana’s death in 1997.

The footage, claims Cohen, is being examined by ghost researchers. Or window cleaners. We’re not sure.

No matter. The video is slated to be part of a TV series on paranormal mysteries, so someone will make money.

As for the image, make of it what you will.

If we squint a bit, we’d swear it was Elvis.
