Video given to paranormal writer Michael Cohen appears to show a ghostly  image resembling Princess Diana, but is it just an optical illusion?

Is this the ghost of Princess Diana or an optical illusion?

I'd like to know what picture is actually on the stained glass before I start drawing conclusions. Very ineresting though.

Well, I say it's quite convenient that none of the stories anywhere mention exactly which church in Glasgow the video footage was taken in so you can't do what Device suggests. There's no proof of the stained glass being from a church in Glasgow, for that matter.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

I very much doubt that this is Princess Di - she loathed Scotland!

I don't believe it is either, but when you watch the video there is a likeness. So I can see why some would think it could be her.

i want to see the window in another pic or video so i can see what it looks like without the strange lighting.
as for whether this is princess diana...lol
if you take what appears to be a tiara off what appears to be a head, there would be no reference to princess diana.
why do people insist that they see images of dead people on inanimate things?

It was really an out of focus video. I guess it was just a Saint that happened to look somewhat like the Princess.

Just looks like the kind of image you normal get on stained glass windows in churches.

I do believe there are ghosts but I'm not convinced nor do I reject it.  Need more information.

I have been doing a little looking on Google and I believe the church is Govan Old Parish Church.

This is a photo of the main windows:

This is a close up of the middle window and the same image superimposed over the alleged ghostly window set to 60% opacity:

With the superimposed image you can see that the alleged ghostly face matches pretty closely both the height and width of the angel. Also, the eye area seen in the OP closely corresponds to the area between the bottom of the banner held by the angel and what appears to be a fold in its robe.

Looking at the original close up for a while a vague face does start to appear around the area of the banner and the angels robe.

As some form of vague face is visible on a different image of the same window, I would put the alleged ghostly face down to a combination of a trick of the light and pareidolia.

This all took way longer than I expected due to stupid computer having a trantrum and why the pictures have my cursor floating about like a loon on them. <_<

If that image is in a church, then I doubt its her.  If you look around the entire area in the vid you can make out other images as well.

It's interesting but there is a practical explanation.

Besides which, why would Di be floating around a church in Glasgow?
