‘Truth, Lies, Diana’ – a controversial new play about the life of Princess Diana, reignites rumours that Prince Charles did not father Prince Harry.
The West End play proposes that former Household Cavalry Officer James Hewitt fathered the fourth in line to the throne during his affair with Princess Diana in the 80s. According to The Huffington Post, Jon Conway, the playwright, claims that Hewitt himself admitted the fact, and, supported the show by allowing the admission to form a key part of the plot.
Conway stated “There is a startling revelation that James Hewitt makes and he has allowed me to make it in the play. This is the fact that his relationship with Diana started 18 months before Prince Harry was born.”
In the play, the scandalous scene sees Hewitt tell a journalist “Diana and I started our relationship more than a year before Harry was born. Now that doesn’t prove that I am his father. It’s just the inconvenient truth.”
The subject is reprised when Hewitt’s character is questioned on whether he knows who Harry’s father actually is, to which he replies suggestively: “Of course I do.” The rumor first arose in the mid-90s, when Diana’s illicit affair with James Hewitt became public knowledge.
According to Jon Conway, ‘Truth, Lies, Diana’, is a unique ‘factional’ drama, which contains sensational new information about the death of Princess Diana that is presented in a stimulating format. The writer states that the play is about “about people who lie. From little lies in a marriage, to big lies involving establishment cover ups.”
The play features actual words spoken by a host of characters including James Hewitt, Piers Morgan, Paul Burrell, Mohammed Al Fayed, members of MI6, witnesses to Diana’s crash, and the British Royal Family.
The drama, which has already had a successful run in New York, is set to open at The Charing Cross Theatre in London’s West End on January 9 and will be played up until mid-February.
