Freddie Mercury 'Took Diana To Gay Club In Drag'
Late Queen rocker claimed to have disguised Princess for night out...
Queen frontman and Kenny Everett's former sidekick, has made the claim in her autobiography - which is being serialised in The Sunday Times.
She wrote: "Scrutinising her in the half light we decided that the most famous icon of the modern world might just - just - pass for a rather eccentrically dressed gay male model."
Cleo claims that they dressed Diana in an army jacket, leather cap and aviator sunglasses in order to sneak her into the Royal Vauxhall Tavern back in the 1980s.
"The place was full. It took an absolute eon to edge our way to the bar, with person after person cheerfully greeting us. It was fabulously outrageous and so bizarrely exciting. Our hearts pounded with every new leather-clad hairy body that approached, but no one, absolutely no-one, recognised Diana.
"On we inched, through the leather throngs and thongs, until finally we reached the bar. We were nudging each other like naughty schoolchildren. Diana and Freddie were giggling, but she did order a white wine and a beer. Once the transaction was completed, we looked at one another, united in our triumphant quest. We did it!
"Never has going to a bar been quite so exhilarating and fun. We then made a swift exit, a cab was hailed and we whisked Diana back to Kensington Palace. The jolly queens queuing outside unknowingly waved back as their 'queen of hearts' waved goodbye. Not a single person ever found us out."
