I'm A Celeb star Ruthie Henshall's Prince Edward sex confession proves The Crown 'totally wrong' says royal expert

I’M A Celeb star Ruthie Henshall’s confession that she had sex with Prince Edward at Buckingham Palace proves The Crown is “totally wrong” says royal expert, Lady Colin Campbell.

Ruthie, 53, shocked pal Shane Richie when she opened up about her sexcapades with the royal, who she dated for five years.

Lady Colin Campbell, 71, who appeared on I’m A Celebrity… in 2015, gave her opinion on the revelation, insisting her comments prove that The Crown is “totally wrong”. 

Speaking on Saturday’s The Daily Drop, Lady C said: “It proves that the characterisation that the Royal family is being portrayed, in a series that we will not mention by name, is completely inaccurate.

“There’s all sort of nonsense about the ‘Balmoral Test’, which has never taken place. Ruthie has proven that the Royals go out of their way at Balmoral to make their guests feel comfortable.”

Any fans of the Netflix show who have already binge watched the fourth season of the series will know the “Balmoral Test” is the name of one particular episode. 



Joining Lacy C on the show was comedian Melvin Odoom, who revealed he’d been to the royal home, too. 

Replying to Lady C, he said: “I went to Buckingham Palace once and was told I couldn’t take pictures. To find out that Ruthie was flirting with a Royal in there and got busy in there…”

Lady C, asserted: “That’s because he lived there. He had his own suite of rooms there. They live there, they can do pretty much what they want.

“Also it has to be said that Prince Edward is a really great guy.”


Ruthie told the EastEnders stalwart: “You sang in the gardens, I s****ed in the bedrooms.”

She went on to add that she even stole a coat hanger from Windsor Castle as a cheeky memento before sharing that they have "normal toilet roll" – without a "royal seal" as she expected.

Les Misérables star Ruthie dated Edward for five years in the early 1990s. But she ended things when told she would have to give up her career to be a royal.

The pair met while Edward was working for Andrew Lloyd Webber as a production assistant after Ruthie landed the lead role in A Star Is Born. She said: “Lovely bloke.  And I genuinely fell in love with him.


"He was a production assistant at Andrew Lloyd Webber's.  And he then called me himself (Andrew) and he wanted me to play the lead in A Star Is Born. And Edward was my point of contact. 

"He was the one who'd call me up and say you're rehearsing at 2'clock or whatever. And he said to me: 'Would you like to come to mine and watch the film of A Star Is Born with me and you can have some dinner.' 

"I was like: 'What, at the Palace, is that where you live?'"

Ruthie joked how her first date was at Buckingham Palace, with Shane retorting: "Blimey, my first date was at Little Chef!"

The musical theatre legend continued: "He invited me to Windsor for the weekend and as we're walking I'm seeing a table outside and there's people sitting around it and I'm thinking: 'That looks like the Queen'.


"I remembered my dad had said to me that if you ever meet the Queen he said you curtsy and call her m'am, but I grab her hand, forget all about the curtsy, and I'm like: 'I'm really, really pleased to meet you!"

Ruthie also revealed she met Princess Diana "a couple of times" – and that she got so drunk at Balmoral that she sang show tunes in front of the royals.

She added: “There was Diana, the Queen, Margaret, the Queen Mother, Charles, Edward. “Diana was lovely.  I don’t remember a lot because Charles gave me my first martini.

"I've never tried it before so I was fairly… I had two of them and I was like: 'Woah!'

"Margaret goes ‘Yes, yes, oh sing us a song from that show you’re in’. I was in Les Mis at the time so I sang I Dreamed A Dream. “I must have changed key three times because I was so p****d on martinis."

New episodes of I’m A Celebrity…The Daily Drop hosted by Vick Hope will be on the ITV Hub daily.
