Freddie Mercury Snuck Princess Diana Into A Gay Bar Dressed In Drag

More reasons to love both the late Freddie Mercury and the late Princess Diana….

From HuffingtonPost.com:

According to a new book, Queen Legend Freddie Mercury snuck Princess Diana into a notorious gay bar in the late 1980s — and the beloved royal went unnoticed.

In “The Power of Positive Drinking,” comedian Cleo Rocos writes about how she, TV star Kenny Everett and Mercury disguised Princess Diana as a male model so that she could sneak into the Royal Vauxhall Tavern in south London. Dressed in an army jacket, black cap and sunglasses, Diana enjoyed a night out on the town, free of attention.

“When we walked in … we felt she was obviously Princess Diana and would be discovered at any minute. But people just seemed to blank her. She sort of disappeared. But she loved it,” Rocos says, adding that the venue was packed, but the presence of Mercury, Everett and herself helped divert attention from Diana so that she could order drinks at the bar. The group left after about 20 minutes.

“She did look like a beautiful young man,” Rocos explains. “She was always a very fit girl, so they might have thought, ‘There’s a nice young man with pert buttocks.'”

Happy Birthday, Freddie Mercury

Queen’s Freddie Mercury would have been 65 years old today.

I was never a fanatic fan of Queen or of Freddie Mercury, but I did appreciate their music and thought he was one hell of an entertainer with one hell of a voice.

Unfortunately, he died of AIDS in 1991 and we lost that great entertainer.  One can only imagine what he would be doing today.

Here’s Queen’s Official Birthday Video Tribute:
