There has been much speculation surrounding the tale of Princess Diana’s trip to the Vauxhall Tavern.
Rumour has it that her A-lister buddies, Freddie Mercury and Kenny Everett, dressed the royal up as a man and took her on a night out to the infamous venue.
Whether or not the story actually happened still remains a mystery, however many people have discussed the evening including the comedian Cleo Rocos.
It’s said Freddie helped sneak her into the venue (Picture: WireImage)Writing in her book The Power of Positive Drinking, the star claimed that the group had been enjoying champagne at Kenny’s home, when Diana asked about their plans for the evening.
They told her that they were planning heading out to one of the most iconic gay venues in London – and well the mother-of-two is said to have jumped at the chance to join them.
Dressing her up in Kenny’s clothes, Rocos claimed the star looked like ‘a rather eccentrically dressed gay male model.’
She added in her memoir: ‘Diana and Freddie were giggling, but she did order a white wine and a beer. Once the transaction was completed, we looked at one another, united in our triumphant quest. We did it!
Cleo Rocos spoke about the speculation in her book (Picture: Getty Images)‘When we walked in… we felt she was obviously Princess Diana and would be discovered at any minute.
‘But people just seemed to blank her. She sort of disappeared. But she loved it.’
Now, years after the night is said to have taken place, the comedy show Urban Myths will explore the speculation in the upcoming series.
