The late Princess Diana had reportedly 'tipped off' an Australian paparazzo about her then-husband Prince Charles' affair with Camilla Parker Bowles a whole year before the cheating scandal went public. 

The Australian photographer Darryn Lyons gave an interview to WHO magazine on Thursday where the 53-year-old alleged that he was aware of the affair around six to twelve months before 'Squidgygate' in which a series of phone calls between Diana and her friend James Gilbey were leaked to the press. In the conversations, Diana had "subtly" hinted at Prince Charles' affair and infidelity. "She knocked on my door one day and said, 'Why aren't you photographing my husband?'" Lyons said referring to one of his many encounters with Princess Diana.

"And I said, 'Why would I be photographing him?' He's got big ears, a big nose and he's ugly and talks to trees," he responded. "It was a subtle tip-off about his affair with Camilla — about six to 12 months before Squidgygate broke," he continued.

The conversations that Princess Diana had her with friend James were initially leaked in the year 1992. Given that the intimate and very private phone conversations were leaked, this accelerated the separation and ultimate divorce of the couple. An alleged transcript of intimate calls between Charles and Camilla titled 'Camillagate' were also exposed. The transcript was initially printed by Australian magazine called New Idea and is believed to have been from a conversation recorded in 1989.

Princess Diana and Prince Charles tied the knot in the year 1981 and had two children Prince William and Prince Harry in the year 1982 and 1984 respectively. The couple eventually got divorced in 1996. 

Recently, Lyons also questioned the official details related to Princess Diana's death saying that he had "huge questions" about what exactly went down in the infamous accident in Paris in the year 1997. As reported by the Daily Telegraph earlier this month, he shared, "Everyone says it was a tragic accident... some very strange things happened that night and I was a part of many of the strange things that happened that night." However, he admitted that he had "no proof that the Princess of Wales was murdered."
