Diana's butler spills on Prince Harry's real dad

There's been plenty of speculation over the years in regards to the identity of Prince Harry's dad.

And now Princess Diana's former butler Paul Burrell has lifted the lid on what he believes is the truth.

During a cosy conversation with jungle campmates on Tuesday night's episode of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, the 59-year-old said he "absolutely" believes Prince Charles is Harry's father, and entirely dismissed the possibility of Diana's ex, James Hewitt, being the dad.

The royal chatter all began when The Real Housewives Of Melbourne's Jackie Gillies indulged her curiosity..

"Do you believe that Prince Harry is Charles’ child?" she asked Paul.

* James Hewitt 'can't move on' from Diana affair

"Yes. Absolutely," he responded.

And even when Jackie probed, "It isn’t the other...The orange hair?", Paul insisted "She didn’t know James Hewitt when Harry was born."

"That’s fact," he continued. "Five years into the marriage, she had Harry. And she hadn’t yet met James Hewitt. True."

The 59-year-old, who served as Diana's butler for a decade, has been quite vocal about the royal family since Di's death in 1997.

Meanwhile back in March, James Hewitt said in an Australian interview that he's not Harry's father.

"No I’m not," he replied.
