Diana's Lover Was 'Desperate To Hide Relationship'

Late British royal DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES' lover JAMES HEWITT was so desperate to cover-up their illicit affair he sought advice from a public relations guru, according to a new book.

Diana met Hewitt at a polo match shortly before her wedding to Prince Charles in 1981 and they quickly became firm friends - but soon after her honeymoon, Diana reportedly realised her husband did not love her.

Hewitt quickly became a close confidant of the princess, and in 1984 they started an affair which left the British Army officer terrified they would be discovered by the UK's press.

So Hewitt turned to publicist Max Clifford for advice.

Clifford writes in his new book READ ALL ABOUT IT: "He (Hewitt) was absolutely certain at that time that he didn't want anything to come out and I agreed to help him.

"I told him to keep quiet and not to say anything to anyone. I explained that in these situations the papers might speculate but that there were only two people whose word would be taken as cast-iron evidence; his and the woman he was involved with.

"If they didn't provide that evidence then their relationship could never be absolutely confirmed."

Clifford says Hewitt and Diana followed his sage advice, and their romantic involvement had not been confirmed by the media by the time they split up in 1992 - a decision by Diana which he says left Hewitt heartbroken.

Clifford continues, "The relationship ended abruptly when she refused to take his calls. He was hurt and upset, particularly as she didn't explain what he had done wrong. He said it was a small comfort to know she wasn't the first friend she had dropped like a stone.

"He admitted he drowned his sorrows in drink and that he never really got over it."

Hewitt later ignored Clifford's advice and sold his story to British newspapers and published the book PRINCESS IN LOVE in 1994. Diana admitted to the affair during a 1995 British television interview with controversial journalist Martin Bashir.

Where love grows's picture

Where love grows

Diana was and is loved by many but that will not bring the love she searched for. Only those people that are searching for love and companionship will have an understanding of what Diana was hoping to find. She married Charles with her heart and soul and wanted the fairytale that we all her as a child. It didn't matter that Charles would be King. It was the cloud of love she had for him. I believe if Camilla hadn't stayed in the picture things would have been different for both of them. If she would have been a real woman and told Charles you are married now please lets just be distant friends as your family comes first. Charles on the other hand stated he never loved Diana so why did he ruin her life. If he were the man he wants to be he would have stood his ground and choose the love he wanted, Camilla in the first place. Charles also had a bad life and a dream of how he could have his own one-day. Now his parents saw nothing wrong with the set up to get the heirs for the royal family. Wait they are the elders who should have been guiding Charles to do the right thing? The whole marriage was wrong, as The Elders were relieved that Charles had finally chosen a wife to bear his heirs. It didn't matter rather he loved Diana or not just as long as the bloodline continued.So Charles had this miserable life to please his parents and the commoners. So, inter Diana she pleased everyone except him. To say its ok for a male Royal to have lots of experience before marriage but, he must wed a virgin is so messed up. And to say that the princes can have mistresses after marriage!! Let's reset the clocks here if it is ok for the one then why not for the other? Now some of you blame Diana for everything that went wrong in the marriage. I guess my thoughts are close to the way she might have thought. As I think the spouse comes first before friends and engagements. Then you add children and you have a family that should be first. Diana put her family first, as that was the order of importance to her. Charles seemed to put other things ahead of his wife and family. What away to show Diana she meant little to him. Even his children were treated in this manor.We can look at the family history and point fingers will this bring Diana back can it change the past? NOEach of these people lived in there own worlds and it is a shame that these worlds could not stand as one. They each did things that we on the outside say was wrong. Diana wanted love and understanding. She went in search for the missing factor in her life. Charles was her king and she loved him however, she did not get the companionship she needed from him.Charles wanted love and understanding but was not allowed to marry the one he loved at the time. As he had to produce heirs for the thrown. Since his love had previously had other relations she couldn't be the mother of the heirs.This is sad that so many lives had to be destroyed for what? If Charles would have been let to marry the woman of his choice lives could have been spared.The people would not have known the beloved Diana as we do now.I only hope that the same guidelines don't play out for William and Herry. Let them fall in love and let the family and commoners stay out of there lives. Everyone deserves to be loved with out interference.In love of Diana, do not taint her name she is the future Kings mother.Let those with out sin throw the first stone!

Who the beep,beep does scarlettroyal think he or she is. Harry is the son of the late Diana, Princess of Wales and Charles, the Prince of Wales. There is no way would the royal family accept an illegitmate child in their family. I think it is time for the scarlettroyal to shut up and get your fact correct before you open up your mouth.

The Spencers and the Windsors were old family friends for generations.The Queen is godmother to Diana's brother, Charles, the Eighth Earl Spencer.The Queen Mother was godmother to Diana's sister, Lady Sarah Spencer McCorquedale.The Duke of Kent (the Queen's cousin) is godfather to Lady Jane Fellowes, Diana's second sister.Diana's grandmother, Lady Ruth Furmoy (her mother's mother) was Lady-in-Waiting to the Queen Mother and "engineered" the wedding with Charles favorite great-uncle, Lord Mountbatten. Diana was a playmate of Prince Charles brother, Prince Andrew.Charles dated Diana's sister, Lady Sarah Spencer, when Diana was a child. Charles and Diana were married in 1981. She "messed around" with James Hewitt and she got pregnant with Prince Harry who was born in 1984. Charles and Diana then lived separately but were not divorced until 1996. But not before Diana "sacked" Charles entire staff, and her own entire staff, and had nothing to do with her parents, or her siblings, or any of her friends.No one could sustain a relationship with the volatile and self-centered Diana.

Prince Harry is the "son" of Prince Charles. However, his biological "sperm-donor" is JAMES HEWITT.Consider that while human nature causes most people to brag about how long they have known famous people, James Hewitt goes to great lengths to proclaim that he didn't even meet Diana until "1985" or sometimes "1986." In fact, there is ample evidence that he met Diana BEFORE she married Prince Charles in 1981, and began an affair with her in early 1983. Shortly after the birth of Prince William, Charles instructed Diana to learn to ride because horses were an integral part of the lives of Windsors. He was not content to have Diana sulking around the house while the rest of the family spent their weekends riding. Indeed, Charles insisted that Diana learn to ride at least well enough to join in and reassure William (when he was ready) so they could, as a familiy, join weekends outings with Auntie Anne and Uncle Mark and cousins Peter and Zara and Granny and Grandpa and ALL the other Windsors in their weekend pursuits with horses. Diana put the best spin she could on having to learn to ride by choosing her own instructor ....... her old friend, James Hewitt.She warmed to James who was much nicer to her than Charles or the other Royals. Indeed, James was thrilled with his conquest (which would have cost him his head in another lifetime) and Diana was grateful for the positive diversion. However, neither of them counted on the pregnancy (they would cross that bridge when it came). Diana was borderline. As such, she had no concept of consequences. She was a mental nimrod and had no concept of DNA (remember that in 1983 there was very little talk or knowledge of DNA) and she was not concerned about covering up for a child who looked like her lover. (To Diana, if the mate was "white" that was enough of a similarity. She had no idea about "markers" because she was a nitwit who couldn't pass even one O-level, and only got through school by passing things like "drawing" and "physical exercise" with B's while getting D's in English and history. And forget math and science. Those courses were as Greek to Diana.) She had no idea that head shapes were genetic and hand shapes were genetic and height and shoulders and ears and noses and skin and hair were all genetic. She only thought what made her "feel good" which is another sign of a mentally defective human being. She was sent to a charm school in Switzerland when she was 16 and that was the end of ther formal education. She was set up in a London flat by Earl Spencer and that was the end of his responsibility to her. She earned money by working at a nursery school as an "aide" but was called a "teacher" by the media. She also made friends with a certain "set" in London and James Hewitt was part of that set. Then, she was promoted by her grandmother Fermoy, Lady in Waiting to the Queen Mum, who heard about the lament of "who for Charles?" and thought of Diana. Charles KNEW from the dates of her conception that HE WAS NOT involved. But he suspected who was involved. When the child was born, he knew who the bio-dad was, and the "Spencer" red hair had nothing to do with it.Hewitts have orange hair, like Harry. Spencers have dark auburn hair, as evidenced by Sarah and Jane. AND, don't forget, Diana wasn't even a Spencer, so there was no way that Diana could even ever pass on "Spencer" auburn hair. That was her mother's attempt to give ligitimacy to her daughter's child. And, another veiled attempt to cover up her own indiscretions with Diana's real bio-dad (who was NOT Johnny Spencer). [An intelligent person knows that a person can only pass on the attributes (or markers) of the DNA of their parents.] Diana Spencer was not a Spencer. Harry of Wales is not a Windsor-Mountbatten. And, what is funny is that if something happens to Prince William, the "House of Windsor" will become the "House of Hewitt/Who Knows" because we do not know who Diana's real bio-dad was. "Oh what a tangled web we weave . . . "

A message to the comments that have already been submitted. James Hewitt is absolutely NOT the father of Prince Harry. These rumours are totally untrue and it's about time that they were laid to rest!!!Visit www.jameshewitt.com

Hewitt has said publicly that he didn't meet Diana until 1986.However, Harry is his son and it is no doubt that they were very close at least 9 months before Harry's birth.Charles knew that Harry was not his because he was not sleeping with Diana when she became pregnant the second time.Charles knew that Harry was not his. The only question was who the father really was. That question was answered with Harry's ginger hair.That is when Charles began his long-term affair with Camilla. AFTER Harry was born and Charles had proof of Diana's sleeping around and treachery.
