The late Princess Diana terrorised her love rival Camilla Parker Bowls with stalking phone calls and death threats, according to allegations in a startling new biography of Prince Charles’ second wife.
The book, by royal respected reporter Penny Junor, was compiled via interviews with Camilla’s friends – and is therefore being widely seen as a quasi-authorised account of the Duchess’ life.
Among the most disturbing revelations are claims that the late Princess of Wales launched a reign of terror against Camilla in the dying days of her marriage to Charles, during the late 80s and early 90s.
Convinced of conspiracies against her, Diana reportedly also raged against a number of people, including her own private secretary Patrick Jephson – allegedly leaving the following message on his answering machine: ‘We know where you are, and so does your wife [sic]. I know you’re being disloyal to me.’
She is also claimed to have bombarded Charles’ private secretary, Richard Ayland, and allegedly stalked her lover Oliver Hoare’s wife with silent phone calls.
But it was her anger at Camilla that is described in the most vivid detail. According to Junor, Di called Camilla at odd hours and would typically say words to the effect: ‘I’ve sent someone to kill you. They’re outside in the garden. Look out of the window; can you see them?’
It’s not known what Diana’s sons William and Harry think of the book, and there has been no official statement from the palace.
