Prince Charles’ ‘hidden double life which left Princess Diana paranoid’

Prince Charles led a "double life" and hid his whereabouts from Princess Diana, which left her paranoid – claims a former butler for the Prince and Princess of Wales.

The prince would "lie" to the princess when meeting up with his current wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles, says the source.

Paul Burrell, a former butler who worked for the Royal Family alleged Prince Charles was living two different lives when he was away from Princess Diana.

Claims were made during Monday night's episode of ITV's The Diana Interview: Revenge Of A Princess.

The staffer also says the princess would call him up to ask about Prince Charles' whereabouts throughout the week while she stayed mainly at Kensington Palace, and he was at Highgrove.

However, Mr Burrell claims he would advise the Princess of Wales to speak to Prince Charles herself, reports the Express.

He said: “The Princess would ring me up during the week and say 'where's Prince Charles?' and I'd say 'I can't really say, you'll have to ask him.’”

The former royal butler added there were “two very different lives” at Highgrove – the royal household of Charles and Diana at the time.

One royal insider has said Princess Diana was being “consistently lied to” and that “she had every right to be paranoid”.

The documentary also focuses on the interview the Princess of Wales had with BBC journalist Martin Bashir in 1995

Analysts say the interview shocked Britain due to its contents about the state of Diana’s marriage to Prince Charles.

It comes amid claims Mr Bashir has used deceitful tactics to secure the interview.

The BBC has now said it will hold an independent investigation into the matter.

BBC director general Tim Davie said: “The BBC is taking this very seriously and we want to get to the truth.

“We are in the process of commissioning a robust and independent investigation.”

The full terms of the BBC’s investigation are due to be announced in the coming days.

Mr Bashir himself is currently unable to answer questions on the matter on doctors’ orders, the BBC has claimed.

Princess Diana’s brother Earl Spencer has previously hit out at the BBC over the matter.

He tweeted the broadcasting corporation was “incapable of honestly facing up to the ugly truth of this matter”.
