Jon Conway’s Truth, Lies, Diana will run at the Charing Cross Theatre

A new play about Princess Diana ‘suggests that James Hewitt could be Prince Harry’s father’, according to reports.
Jon Conways’ Truth, Lies, Diana is a “factional” drama that purports to “uncover secrets about Diana and her death, that the establishment have tried to keep hidden”.
Among these themes is a suggestion that Harry may not be Prince Charles’ son. In one scene, the Mirror reported, Hewitt says: “Diana and I started our relationship more than a year before Harry was born. Now that doesn’t prove that I am his father. It’s just the… inconvenient truth.”
Rumours about the former household cavalry officer and Diana are not new, nor are the conspiracy theories touched upon in the play. James Hewitt has firmly denied being Harry’s father, and it has been claimed that the pair did not meet until after Harry’s birth.
Conway previously told the London Evening Standard: “The aim is not to say was she murdered, but to ask were we told the truth?
“The facts in it are all in the public domain— they are presented in a certain sequence and then the audience are asked, well what do you think? I’m not a conspiracy theorist and I think that comes out in the play. But this is a mystery that has not yet been explained.”
Other individuals depicted in the play include Piers Morgan, Paul Burrell, Mohammed Al Fayed, members of MI6, witnesses to Diana’s crash, and the British Royal Family. Diana herself does not appear as a character
