How Princess Diana 'tipped off an Australian paparazzo to Charles' affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles



Princess Diana seems to be tipped off a notorious paparazzo about her husband Parker, a year before it was revealed.

The Australian photographer Darryn Lyons – who earned millions of dollars selling images of the late Diana through his Big Pictures.

Lyons, 53, alleged that around six to 12 months before 'Squidgygate' – the reference between telephone and telephone conversations between Diana and her friend James Gilbey – the royal had 'subtly' hinted at her husband's infidelity.

Speaking of one of his many encounters with Diana, Lyons claimed: 'She knocked on one door and said, "Why aren't you photographing my husband?"

'And I said, "Why would I be photographing him?" He's got big ears, big nose and cute and talks to trees "even though I have a lot of respect for the Prince of Wales.

"It was a subtle tip-off about Camilla's affair – about six to 12 months before Squidgygate broke."

The 1990 phone conversations between Diana and James Gilbey, dubbed Squidgygate by the British media, were first leaked in 1992.

Publication of phone calls marked with a flashpoint in the so-called 'War of the Waleses' and an accelerated royal couple's separation and subsequent divorce.

'Camillagate', was also immediately exposed.

The transcript, which was first printed by Australian magazine New Idea, was recorded as a conversation that took place in 1989.

Diana and Charles married in 1981, before welcoming sons of Prince William and Harry in 1982 and 1984 respectively. They eventually divorced in 1996.

It came after Lyons recently questioned the official details of the death of Princess Diana, saying there were 'huge questions' about what happened in the infamous Paris car crash in August 1997.

The former 'King of the Paparazzi' told Sydney's Daily Telegraph earlier this month that the official account of the tragic accident 'isn't necessarily the truth'.

He said: 'Everyone said it was a tragic accident … that was a night and I had a night out of night.'

However, he was admitted to having 'no proof that the Princess of Wales was murdered'.
