Princess Diana ‘made threatening calls’ to Camilla, biography claims

A new biography of the royal claims she made several "threatening" phone calls to Camilla.
Princess Diana made threatening calls to Duchess Camilla

An explosive new book – which is set to be released next month to coincide with Duchess Camilla’s 70th birthday – has revealed just how tense Princess Diana’s relationship was with Camilla Parker Bowles.

Penny Junor’s new book The Duchess: The Untold Story, which is being serialised on The Daily Mail, claims a furious Diana would phone her husband’s mistress in the middle of the night and make “threatening and unnerving” comments like: “I’ve sent someone to kill you. They’re outside in the garden. Look out the window; can you see them?’”

The book claims Duchess Camilla received several threatening phone calls from Diana during her affair with Prince Charles.

According to Junor, several of Duchess Camilla’s close friends confirmed that these intimidating phone calls happened on more than one occasion.

Camilla wasn’t the only victim of alleged calls with Juror claiming the mother-of-two would leave “disturbing” messages on people’s answering machines.

The book says The Princess of Wales would phone those who had betrayed her and tease: “We know where you are, and so does your wife [sic]. I know you’re being disloyal to me.”

Both Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s private secretaries, Patrick Jephson and Richard Aylard, reportedly received such calls.

“And when one of Diana’s men friends, Oliver Hoare, tried to cool their relationship, she bombarded his wife with silent phone calls,” Junor claims.

Continuing: “Diana was not well during those years from the late Eighties to the mid-Nineties. She saw conspiracies everywhere — she abruptly dropped friends, family and people who worked for her, and was convinced that her husband’s office was trying to discredit her.”

After the calls, Camilla’s opinion of Diana changed drastically.

“Camilla had actually been sympathetic towards the Princess at first, but she had also stopped feeling sorry for her.”
