There’s a down side to being Britain’s “playboy prince”, and it’s that people will never stop speculating about exactly WHERE you got that ginger hair.
And here we go again.
A new West End play about Princess Diana is about to open in London. It suggests (again) that former army officer James Hewitt, 56, and not Prince Charles, is Prince Harry’s biological father.
The play – written by Jon Conway and called Truth, Lies, Diana – is based on quotes and interviews from people who knew the Princess, and also from a series of interviews with Hewitt himself.
Conway says that the former cavalry officer admitted – contrary to what has always been speculated – that his affair with Diana began 18 months prior to Prince Harry being born and has said that he is more than happy for this to be revealed in the play.

The show, which has already been a success in New York, will open at London’s Charing Cross Theatre on January 9th.
The scene that has had everyone talking is when Hewitt is talking to a journalist and says, “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 an inconvenient truth.”
The show is coming out in London soon.
