Camilla ‘took private jets to join Charles on secret foreign trysts’: King’s former personal pilot claims the pair had secret rendezvous when the then prince was on official overseas visits

  • The romantic trysts are disclosed by Squadron Leader Graham Laurie
  • He said: ‘They were getting together overseas but the Press didn’t cotton on’ 

Camilla flew by private jet to secretly rendezvous with Charles while he was on official overseas visits and still married to Princess Diana, a new documentary reveals.

The romantic trysts are disclosed by Squadron Leader Graham Laurie, the King’s former personal pilot, who said: ‘They were getting together overseas but the Press didn’t cotton on.’

Another contributor to the documentary, My King Charles, claims Diana had an affair with a bodyguard and flew into a rage when he was transferred to other duties.

Mr Laurie was one of a pool of pilots based at RAF Northolt in West London and clocked up more than 2,000 Royal flights between 1981 and 2000. Most were with Charles – and he also flew Diana’s body home after her death in 1997.

‘As regards Camilla, I didn’t ever fly her but we did see her involvement in certain trips when we went abroad,’ he says. ‘There would be a civilian charter aircraft on the tarmac before we got there and it was still there when we left. I found out afterwards that actually Camilla had flown in and out on that aircraft.’

The film airs on Amazon on Saturday, Coronation day. Sources at US broadcaster Paramount said Mr Laurie did not know who paid for Camilla’s flights. At least one was made in 1994 when Camilla was still married to Andrew Parker Bowles and King Charles had yet to divorce.

Also on the programme, former Royal protection officer Allan Peters recalls how Diana turned angry when he tried to stop an alleged affair with Barry Mannakee, another bodyguard. He says: ‘I was in my office at Kensington Palace and… she was in the doorway throwing her shoes at the back of my head, upset, because she was putting the blame on me.’

At the time, Sgt Peters worked for Diana while Mannakee was assigned to her sons, William and Harry, then a year old. He says: ‘I started to notice her conduct in the presence of Mannakee getting more and more strange… As far as I could ascertain they were having an affair.’

And he said Diana flew into her rage after Mannakee – who died in a motorcycle accident in 1987 – was moved to other duties. ‘She was distraught,’ Sgt Peters says, adding: ‘I can categorically say that the first person that strayed in the marriage was the Princess.’

Buckingham Palace said: ‘This story is false.’
