The Time Freddie Mercury Snuck Princess Diana Into A Gay Club Dressed As A Boy

diana freddieBack in the late 1980s, queer singer Freddie Mercury brought Princess Diana to a London gay club in disguise, according to a new book by British actress Cleo Rocos.

In The Power of Positive Drinking, Rocos explains how she and gay comedian Kenny Everett accompanied the rocker and the royal to Royal Vauxhall Tavern, the oldest gay bar in South London, with Diana disguised in an army jacket, cap and dark sunglasses.

Rocos says the princess looked “like a beautiful young man.”

“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.”

Apparently the presence of the three other celebrities allowed Diana to mingle undetected and even order a round of drinks.

Oh, to be in England!
