Doco uncovers sordid royal tale
THE Prince and Princess of Wales’ marriage turmoil and sex life is laid bare in a new documentary – with Diana claiming her husband asserted his right to have a mistress.
Using controversial video tapes of Diana speaking to her voice coach, the Channel 4 TV program Diana: In Her Own Words chronicles her relationship with those closest to her.
When she confronted Charles about why Camilla Parker Bowles was still a part of his life Diana said he replied: “Well, I refuse to be the only Prince of Wales who never had a mistress.”
Diana confessed she found solace with her married police protection officer Barry Mannakee, a relationship she suggested was not sexual.
But in the tapes she revealed she considered fleeing the royal household to be with him.
She also claimed she had sex with her husband Charles “once every three weeks” but it fizzled out a few years after Prince Harry was born in 1984.
The Princess claimed Prince Philip had told his son he could have an affair with Camilla – if his marriage had failed after a set period.
The program is due to air in the UK this weekend.
NOT AMUSED: Prince Charles is unlikely to be a fan of the TV documentary Diana: In Her Own Words, which chronicles dramas in his marriage to Princess Diana.
