The Real Story Behind the Night Freddie Mercury Dressed Princess Diana as a Man and Took Her Clubbing - esquire.com

Diana and her friends got to experience a wild night of anonymity...

In the new series of The Crown, we see the soon-to-be princess (played by Emma Corrin) out clubbing with her girlfriends and dancing on tables to Stevie Nicks.

There have been many well-documented scenes of Diana on the dancefloor - especially in the Netflix series; ballroom dancing with Charles in Sydney, then throwing some shapes to Billy Joel’s Uptown Girl at the Royal Opera House - but all these pale in comparison to the story of a wild night out that Diana had with Freddie Mercury, Kenny Everett and Cleo Rocos in the 80s.

Diana said that she was in “full mischief mode”, and Mercury agreed: “Go on, let the girl have some fun.”.

In 2019, Sky Arts’ Urban Myths series broadcast the programme Princess Diana, Freddie Mercury and Kenny Everett, which imagines the epic night out even further.

And fans are now desperate for it to be recreated for the next series of The Crown.

One viewer on Twitter said: “I’m basically only watching The Crown in case they do the “Diana & Freddie Mercury go to the Vauxhall Tavern” bit, which we all know is the only royal family related story worth putting on screen”?

Another commented: “If there isn't a scene in The Crown series five where Diana is taken to The RVT in drag by Freddie Mercury, we sue Netflix,” while another fan added: “Let’s start a petition!”.

But it’s pleasing to think that for one night, Diana and her friends got to experience a wild night of anonymity, joining the masses moving together on the dancefloor - something that’s equally poignant now, as we’ve all had this taken away from us in 2020
