- that he was raped by Michael Fawcett, a favoured servant of the Prince Charles; and
- that Fawcett was himself in a homosexual relationship with the Prince of Wales, who protected him.
'Smith approached Diana Princess of Wales and made two allegations. He repeated his allegation that he had been raped. He also claimed to have witnessed the Princess's estranged husband, the Prince of Wales, lying in bed with his aide, Michael Fawcett, on one occasion when he brought the Prince his breakfast. Diana made a tape of the interview. The whereabouts of the tape became a matter of considerable controversy following Diana's death in August 1997.
A subsequent inquiry by senior staff members of the Prince of Wales into the rape allegations dismissed them as fiction. Smith was retired from the Prince's Household.' (Wikipedia)
The man lived a short life. Suspecious indeed reading between the lines. - On 24 August 2005 Smith died after suffering from an unknown illness in Newport, Wales aged 44.'
In history thrones have been overturned - with reason.
The Daily Mail reported 'He was her husband without the sex', Paul Burrell's brother-in-law once told me about Paul's relationship with Princess Diana.'
'In the earlier years, when Camilla Parker Bowles visited Highgrove, Prince Charles ordered him to lie to Diana. He heard the savage rows, insults and sneers from Charles that Diana looked like an air hostess.
He saw the physical fights. He observed the Prince's petulance, vanity and nasty temper. He witnessed the times he called his wife a hysteric and made it clear he loathed her.
He comforted William and Harry when they wept during the terrible arguments.'
'He knew that a member of Prince Charles's staff had been suspected of homosexual rape.
Diana even asked her butler to buy pornographic magazines for a teenage Prince William, which I find pretty unpleasant.
These facts came out because Paul Burrell was forced to give a police statement prior to his trial. Undeniably, he gave far more details than were necessary. However, if sense had prevailed, no statement would have been required because there wouldn't have been a trial.
Transport the Windsors' and Spencers' behaviour to a sink estate in the North of England and they'd be two dysfunctional families under the care of social workers with occasional intervention by the police.' (Daily Mail)
Just with the discovery of an affair and children witnessing fights - masses of people around the world might have been going through the same experiences. The royals influence masses of people, even with what is happening behind closed doors. They are not excluded from learning lessons.
