Diana’s friends ‘told her to wear Camilla wig’ as Princess joked about marriage
Princess Diana was told to wear a Camilla-style wig to spice up her marriage to Charles, a royal biographer has claimed.
The Crown Historian and royal expert Robert Lacey alleges in his new book that the People’s Princess would joke with friends about “getting no action” from her husband.
As reported by The Sun, bestselling author Lacey said: “Diana would both bemoan and joke about the bedroom boycott with her girlfriends.
“Perhaps she should try to get Charles drunk one evening, she suggested, in the hope of encouraging a bit of princely ‘leg-over’.
"'Oh no', they would respond, 'You know what happens to the vital organ under the influence of too much alcohol – brewer’s droop'.
"‘How about turning down the lights and wearing a blonde wig?’ asked one of them. "That way he might mistake you for Camilla.’”
Charles and Diana divorced in 1996 after a very public falling-out that saw the Princes appear on Panorama.
During her sensational interview, she told journalist Martin Bashir she was believed that there was a third party in her marriage – hinting that she believed her husband was cheating.
She said: “Well, there were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded.”

A staggering 22.8 million watched her bombshell chat, and it remains one of the highest-rated BBC programmes of all time.
Camilla and Charles finally tied the knot in 2005.
Their relationship was suddenly thrust back under the limelight after it was fictionalised in the latest series of The Crown.
Friends of the Prince of Wales slammed the shows retelling, claiming it was “trolling” on a Hollywood budget.
A source told The Mail: "This is drama and entertainment for commercial ends being made with no regard to the actual people involved who are having their lives hijacked and exploited.
“In this case, it’s dragging up things that happened during very difficult times 25 or 30 years ago without a thought for anyone’s feelings. That isn’t right or fair, particularly when so many of the things being depicted don’t represent the truth.”
