Freddie Mercury took Princess Diana to gay bar in drag

And Finally

Freddie Mercury

Queen frontman Freddie Mercury once smuggled Princess Diana into South London gay bar the Vauxhall Tavern in drag. Or so says comedy actress Cleo Rocos in her new autobiography, ‘The Power Of Positive Drinking’, which is currently being serialised in the Sunday Times.

As well as Mercury and Ricos, the latter’s television partner Kenny Everett also helped to smuggle the disguised princess into the Tavern. So, there you go.┬áRicos writes: “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. She did look like a beautiful young man”.
