A controversial new West End play is reigniting the debate over who Prince Harry's true biological father is. It is no secret that Princess Diana was having an affair with cavalry officer James Hewitt 18 months before Harry's birth, and many have alleged he is that prince's real father. It is a claim Hewitt himself has always denied, but he approved of the dialogue in Truth, Lies, Diana that seems to indicate he is Harry's father.
Jon Conway wrote the play and reportedly spoke with several people who were close to Diana, including Hewitt:
"I have been talking to James over a period of two years. I met him and he told me some quite remarkable things that have never been said in the public domain, particularly about when his relationship with Diana started. There is a startling revelation that James Hewitt makes and he has allowed me to make it in the play. This is the fact that his relationship with Diana started 18 months before Prince Harry was born.
"We are not saying he is Prince Harry's father although the audience may take their own view on that. I don't know if James Hewitt is Prince Harry's father, and James Hewitt has always denied it either because it isn't true or out of some sense of loyalty."
There is that old saying Where there's smoke, there's fire, and this is one royal scandal that never seems to go away for long at all. Many media outlets have gone so far as to compare photos, and Harry certainly does look more like Hewitt than he has ever resembled Prince Charles.
Do you think that behind the palace walls this issue has ever actually been addressed head-on, or is it just one of those glaring secrets no one dares to speak of? Do you think Hewitt is Prince Harry's biological father?
