Please Let This Be True: Princess Diana Dressed in Drag, Went Clubbing With Freddie Mercury

(Bauer Griffin)

Here's a piece of delightful vintage gossip to start your Monday morning: In Cleo Rocos's new memoir, The Power of Positive Drinking, the comedian recounts that one time she and Freddie Mercury dressed Princess Diana in drag and snuck her into a gay bar, a.k.a. The Most 80's Thing That Ever Happened.

"When we walked in... we felt she was obviously Princess Diana and would be discovered at any minute," Rocos said. "But people just seemed to blank her. She sort of disappeared. But she loved it."

Rocos couldn't remember whether the royal, who was wearing a camo army jacket, a leather cap, and aviator sunglasses — so model off-duty! — was propositioned at the bar, but she distinctly recalled that Diana "did look like a beautiful young man."
