Sex, Lies And Videotape

‘THE Queen might be a fan of Kirsty’s Home Videos, but there are some other home movies being broadcast in the States that make for more uncomfortable viewing.

‘It would really turn me on if you pretended to be dead’

The Express has watched American broadcaster NBC’s two-part documentary Princess Diana: The Secret Diaries and reeled in shock.

Reportedly shot by Diana’s former voice coach Peter Settelen, the eight hours of audio and video tape are, in the paper’s opinion, “sensational”.

Claimed to have been made in the 1990s, the tapes’ contents are best revealed in excerpts.

On the day of her marriage to Charles, Di says: “I was very, very deathly calm. Deathly, deathly calm. I felt I was a lamb to the slaughter and I knew it, but I couldn’t do anything about it.”

She did try to marry a different man, mixing up Charles’ multitude of middle names, but it was a weak plot from a desperate woman and came to nought.

“It was the worst day of my life,” she notes, with an obvious nod at that wedding dress. “If I could write my own script, I would have my husband go away with that woman and never come back.”

That woman is Camilla Parker Bowles, whose wedding gift to Charles of a pair of Chanel cufflinks (two Cs entwined) sparked a honeymoon row.

She also relates an illuminating tale of how after a Royal funeral Charles became frisky. “The next minute he leapt on me,” she said, “and I thought this was very strange.”

If not more than little improper.

But what goes for the norm among our gentrified classes is often beyond the ken of humbler souls like ourselves.

We can only say how thankful we are that Charles managed to control himself during the funeral of his former wife. If not for us, then at least for the young princes…’
