    Legally it's still a libel. I asked a criminal barrister yesterday. Even using words like 'baseless' or 'alleged' don't get media off the hook .

    Thanks Herman!

    So, the explanation is that the grey Merc van was the King's favourite car. It even had a special nickname 'James Bond'. That's why it was used for the transportation of his remains.
