It's been difficult for me to comment on this because I don't understand it.

But you are not gay and have never been attracted to men? I don't get it. Watch him attempt to explain it..

Late Princess Diana and Prince Charles have a secret daughter?

This report is laughable. A story circulating in the U.S. media claims Diana and Charles had a secret daughter - although not quite in the way one would expect. Prepare to suspend your disbelief for a moment. For it is alleged that Prince William was not his mother’s first child: that he has a ‘secret sister’, now 33, called Sarah and living incognito in a small New England town in the United States.

How, you may well wonder, can this possibly be true when William was born in June 1982, only 11 months after his parents’ marriage?

The answer, according to this unbelievable claim, is that in Dec. 1980, Lady Diana Spencer, then a 19-year-old virgin, was ordered by the Queen to undergo gynaecological tests to establish that she was capable of bearing children before her engagement to the heir to the throne could be announced.

And she's a high school drop out and she's messing with her face and her boobs, and her behind, way to early in life. Bruce has bigger fish to fry than turning into Belinda.
