Seven years after having younger son Harry, Princess Diana was saying goodbye to her lover, James Hewitt of the Queen’s Life Guard regiment. That was 1991.
But only now has Hewitt put to rest an old rumor — that he’s the biological father of Prince Henry of Wales.
“The former army officer shot down the speculation Sunday on the Australian TV show ‘Sunday Night,’” reports the New York Daily News. “No, I’m not,” the 58-year-old responded to the blunt question.
But he did nothing to dispel the seriousness of the affair.
“The princess and her riding instructor kept home like an ordinary couple, Hewitt said in his interview,” the Daily News said.
“It’s a gradual period and then, you know, suddenly you can’t get enough of each other or see each other as much as you want,” Hewitt said. “I’d cook and she’d wash up. Just dinner and relaxing and laughing.”
