What has Charles got ot do with Mohamed Al Fayed and his attitude to the Death of Diana and Dodi? Do you really think they are comparable?

Why was it relevant whether or not she was pregnant ... I don't know. But it always seems to come up in these situations, and it always seems to be relevant. As a matter of fact, when Mary Jo Kopechne drowned in Chappaquiddick, it was rumored that she was pregnant, too, and a big deal was made of it.
The pregnancy was relevant in that part of the reason for the "alleged plot to murder DI" was that "she was pregnant by a Muslim" and the "secret service, the RF etc etc" would not allow William the future King to have a Muslim half brother. If Al Fayed had not mouthed off with these ideas of his, the question would not have arisen.

Actually, Khan's statement about Diana using birth control may have been relevant, since there were rampant rumors that she'd been pregnant when she died. But if it was known that she was on birth control, that would put those rumors to rest. And really, there's nothing shameful about being on birth control, so that surely wouldn't be an attempt to trash her.
I don't know how much Henri Paul reacted to alcohol, but he was seen drinking. Maybe he wasn't seen by the bodyguard, but he's on video, having a couple of d
People may not agree with the verdict handed down by the inquiry, but that doesn't mean it's either wrong or right. And it doesn't mean that it was held just to trash Diana.
Of course it wasn't' an attempt to trash her..It was to try and find out the truth and put the whole story to rest. And MAF seeems to have accepted the verdict..
If anything the investigation seems to portray Diana, in spite of her faults, as a responsible woman in many respects. She did break off with Khan to have some kind of relationship with Dodi, but I would say that the inquest made it clear that she wasn't planning on marrying him and she was using contraception and wasn't pregnant or likely to get pregnant.
the whole mess was more to do with Fayed and his messy organisation.
Henri Paul certainly did have a couple of drinks that night and he may have had more.. plus, as you say he was taking anti depressants. the bodyguards were messed about by Dodi, changing his plans, and weren't able to stand up to him, or they would lose tehir jobs. But if Dodi had not had the idea of a decoy driver, Henry Paul wouldn't have been called in at short notice to do a job he wasn't really qualified for, expert driving, and there would have been 2 bodyguards in the car.. not just one. (better still of course Dodi should have stayed at the Ritz for the night and sent a servant to get their things from his apartment).
if there WERE defective seatbelts, or no seatbelts, then Diana and Dodi should have refused to get in the car... and waited till another one could be procured.
