Somewhere up in Heaven…

...I trust this scene is being repeated.

From the UK's Sun:

PRINCESS Diana dressed as a man and was smuggled into a gay bar by Queen star Freddie Mercury and comic Kenny Everett, it emerged yesterday.

Fun-loving Di was decked out in camp gear like the Village People for the prank.

TV’s busty Cleo Rocos, who went with the People’s Princess, said Di looked like a male model and added: “She loved it.”

Indeed, disguised Di was delighted when she was served in the bar without being recognised.

She bought a wine and a beer while wearing a camouflage army jacket, black leather cap and aviator sunglasses.

Pal Rocos — who starred in the Kenny Everett Television Show — said: “When we walked in, we felt she would be discovered at any minute.

“But people just seemed to blank her. She sort of disappeared. She loved it.”

Di, keen to escape her stuffy royal life, was a fan of gay funnyman Everett and had earlier met him and Rocos for lunch in London’s posh Kensington.

They swigged peach and champagne cocktails and swapped gossip before going to Kenny’s penthouse.

He had been due to meet that evening with Queen singer and neighbour Freddie Mercury — but instead he rang him to call him over immediately.

The foursome spent the afternoon downing more champagne in front of TV reruns of US comedy The Golden Girls with the sound turned down.

They improvised the characters’ voices — “but with a much naughtier storyline.”

Giggling Di asked about their plans for the evening.

They said they were going to the Royal Vauxhall Tavern in South London.

Rocos, now 50, recalled: “Kenny said, ‘It’s not for you. It’s full of hairy gay men. Sometimes there are fights outside.’

“We pleaded, ‘What would be the headline if you were caught in a gay bar brawl?’

“But Diana was in full mischief mode. Freddie said, ‘Go on, let the girl have some fun’.”

Di put on what Everett had planned to wear and the four caught a cab.

Rocos says in her new book The Power of Positive Drinking: “She did look like a beautiful young man. She was always a very fit girl, so they might have thought, ‘There’s a nice young man with pert buttocks’.”

They got “through the leather throngs and thongs” to the bar before leaving 20 minutes later.

Next day Di had the clothes returned with a note ending: “We must do it again!”
