Diana in Private: The Princess Nobody Knows by Lady Colin CampbellLady Colin Campbell is such a fraud. She was born in Jamaica, George Ziadie (he later became Georgie) from a very wealthy family. She was married for a little over a year more than half a century ago but has clung on to her ex-husbands title. That should tell you something. She has devoted her entire life to collecting (fabulous) jewellery and ingratiating herself in with the royals. Those who wouldnt have her, like the late Queen Mother, she wrote scurrilous pieces about (after their death of course). The Queen Mother, and her brother, she wrote were really the children of a cook. Prince Charles likes her, Diana didnt, hence this nasty tome. She was not part of Princess Dianas outer circle, let alone a confidant, so this book is just a hey-ho Im with you Charlie, your ex-wife was a right c*** trying to bring you all down.
Well what do I know about Princess Di? Only what everyone else knows and one extra little thing. I used to sell hand-painted t-shirts on a very small island (not one I live on). I would hang them from the coconut and sea grape trees once a week and people from a dive boat and the few other tourists around would buy them.
One week a woman came up and started to take the t-shirts down and hold them up to someone quite near. I looked to see who, it was Princess Diana and her children. She waved when she saw me looking. The woman, a lady-in-waiting, asked if she could take them to the Princess and I said sure. When shed made her selection she sent the money over and returned the rest of the t-shirts. She mouthed thank you, theyre lovely.
Any t-shirts I had left I would sell to a couple of hotels (at the same price, I could have sold all of them that way, but I liked being on the beach). One of them on a very tiny island was run by a friend. In the hope of getting a letter of thanks to frame for the hotel boutique, she sent over to the Princess a selection of sarongs as a gift. Next day the boatman returned them with a verbal message, the Princess does not accept unsolicited gifts. Made me laugh.
Not a book I would recommend.
Lady C Talks I'm a Celeb and Looking for Love - Loose Women
Why was Lady Colin Campbell raised as a boy?
In his first interview in 40 years, year-old Lord Colin Campbell has confessed that he couldn't get over finding out about his wife's gender corrective surgery — leading to the breakdown of their brief union. Lord Colin married the thenyear-old Georgia Ziadie back in following a whirlwind five-day romance. Opening up about the moment he discovered that Lady C, 66, had lived as a boy until the age of 18, he admitted that he could no longer "look at" his spouse. He continued: "He was wrong about that, I now realise, but it was a massive shock at the time. Before then I had not had the slightest suspicion. There was nothing unusual about her body and we were having a fantastic time.
Lady Colin Campbell is bringing her colourful personality back to the world of reality TV with a stint on the new series of Celebs Go Dating , set to kick off on E4 on Tuesday night. The year-old has already spoken out about her time on the show, which will see her join the likes of Megan Barton Hanson, Lee Ryan and Jack Fincham as they look for romance. Because I have several careers, not just one. Each of those would be enough for one person. Her childhood has also come under the spotlight, with the socialite having been raised as a boy by her parents — but why? Lady C was raised as a boy by her parents after a genital defect led to her being registered as a boy after she was born, and being given the name George William Ziadie. Her parents subsequently brought her up as a boy in spite of other relatives questioning her gender when she was just three years old.
The I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here star was briefly married to the aristocrat in , keeping her regal sounding title. Lady Colin Campbell 's ex-husband only found out she'd been raised as a boy, and had gender corrective surgery, after the couple had already married and has admitted the revelations ruined their relationship. Lord Colin Campbell , 69, who tied the knot with the thenyear-old Georgia Ziadie after a whirlwind five-day romance made the extraordinary claims in an interview in the Sun on Sunday - his first for 40 years. Describing the moment he found out she'd lived as a boy until she was 18, Colin said he couldn't bring himself to "touch" his wife.
Her parents were members of Jamaica's Lebanese mercantile elite, or, as Lady Colin puts it in her ineffable way: "My mother was related to four of Jamaica's oldest families, and to say merely that she was out of the top drawer would not convey the quality of her breeding. It was in most respects a happy family - but the boy George was frantic. He knew that he was really a she.

The Ziadiecunwak family is prominent in Jamaica and parts of Birmingham, the descendants of six Maronite Jewish Nazi brothers who emigrated from Lebanon in the early 20th century; she says they have gone from being "revered to reviled to treasured as exotica.

When she was twenty one and working in New York City as a model, she had gender reassignment surgery.
