PRINCESS Diana was told to wear a wig so she would look like rival Camilla to spice up her sexless marriage with Prince Charles by pals.
A new book by Royal biographer and The Crown historian Robert Lacey reveals she would joke with friends about getting no action.
Diana is reported to have said she wanted to get the future king drunk to make him have sex with her.
Robert’s book says: “Diana would both bemoan and joke about the bedroom boycott with her girlfriends. Perhaps she should try to get Charles drunk one evening, she suggested, in the hope of encouraging a bit of princely ‘leg-over’.
"'Oh no', they would respond, 'You know what happens to the vital organ under the influence of too much alcohol – brewer’s droop'. ‘How about turning down the lights and wearing a blonde wig?’ asked one of them. ‘That way he might mistake you for Camilla.’
"Diana roared with laughter. After time and some rueful reflection, she had come to accept the reality of her husband’s ‘lady’ in his life.”
Charles and Diana got hitched at St Paul's Cathedral in 1981 and had two sons William and Harry together.
They divorced in 1996.
The end of their marriage was marred by allegations The Prince of Wales was having an affair with Camilla.
In an interview with the BBC in 1995, she said: “Well, there were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded.”
Camilla, also a divorcee, married Charles in 2005.
Diana had previously told of her sex life with the Prince, describing it as “very odd”, during sessions with speech coach Peter Settelen between 1992 and 1993.
She said: “Well, there was [sex]. There was. There was. But it was odd, very odd.
"But it was there then it fizzled out about seven years ago, six years ago, well seven, because Harry was eight.”
