Here’s the Truth About Resurfaced Rumors Charles Cheated on Diana With Harry’s Nanny & Got Her Pregnant
An insidious rumor about the nanny of Prince Charles and Princess Diana is finally dispelled. The rumor dates back to 1995 when royal nanny Tiggy Legge-Bourke was accused of having an affair with the Prince of Wales and of having an abortion after allegedly becoming pregnant with his child. Now, an investigation by the BBC has shown that these rumors are completely false - and the nanny is receiving “substantial” financial compensation for the damage these allegations have caused her.
The BBC's investigation reveals that these rumors began as part of a ploy by British journalist Martin Bashir to coerce Princess Diana into her 1995 bombshell interview for the network's Panorama series. In the interview, Diana infamously alluded to Prince Charles' affair with his current wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, and told Bashir, "There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded."

But it's possible Diana believed her estranged husband had cheated on her too with Legge-Bourke, who was working as a nanny for her children Prince Harry and Prince William at the time. According to the BBC investigation, Bashir provided Diana with fabricated evidence of the affair - including false receipts for an abortion Legge-Bourke performed after allegedly becoming pregnant with the Prince of Wales' child.

Now that the journalist's compulsion has come to light through an investigation into the interview, Legge-Bourke's name is finally acquitted. The BBC has also vowed the former nanny will receive a payout of "over £ 100,000", about $ 137,400, for her troubles, according to a report by The Telegraph on People. "Tiggy Legge-Bourke was at the center of Bashir's manipulation and it is right that the harm done to her should be recognized by the BBC," a source told the UK publication.
Despite the rumors that followed her, Prince Harry and William's former nanny remains a close friend of the royal family. When she got married in 1999, both brothers were present at their wedding. Legge-Bourke also attended Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle in 2018 and was named godmother to their first child, son Archie.
For his part, Bashir has since admitted in a statement following the BBC investigation that forging false documents for the interview was a “stupid thing” and he “deeply” regretted it. Nevertheless, the journalist emphasized that “the bank statements had no influence on Princess Diana's personal decision to take part in the interview”.
