Queen’s Freddie Mercury smuggled Princess Diana into a gay bar during the 1980s dressed as a male model so she wouldn’t be recognised, a new memoir claims.

Comedienne Cleo Rocos says in her new book, The Power of Positive Drinking, that she, Mercury and fellow comedian Kenny Everett dressed Diana in an army jacket, cap and sunglasses for a night out at gay haunt the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, in South London.

Rocos says they met the princess at Everett’s penthouse and revealed their plans to go to a gay pub later in the evening.

“Freddie told her we were going to the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, a notorious gay bar in London. Diana said she had never heard of it and said she’d like to come,” says Rocos. AFP

Saliva test to check aggression in boys
Washington: A simple saliva test could be an effective tool in predicting violent behavior among boys, said a new study.

The study, led by Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center suggests a link between salivary concentrations of certain hormones and aggression.

Researchers, led by Drew Barzman, MD, a child and adolescent forensic psychiatrist at Cincinnati Children’s, collected saliva samples from 17 boys ages 7-9 admitted to the hospital for psychiatric care to identify which children were most likely to show aggression and violence. ANI
