Washington D.C. [U.S.A.], Mar. 14 (ANI): It's been almost 20 years that Princess Diana closed her eyes, but rumours about her life and death are still on. One of such reemerging questions is about the paternity of her youngest son, Prince Harry. There have been claims for years that Prince Charles is not the real father of the 32-year-old Royal; instead, the rumours zoom in on James Hewitt, whom Princess Diana admitted to having an affair with, during her marriage to Prince Charles. Though many claimed resemblance between James and Harry, the former has denied it for years, saying he met the late princess when her second son was already a toddler. According to E! Online, during a recent interview, the question re-emerged, with Hewitt denying it once again. When asked, "Are you Harry's father?," he declared, "No, I'm not." Further, in a reply to "Why does that keep getting repeated?" he retorted, "Sells papers. It's worse for him (Prince Harry) probably, poor chap." A known polo player, Hewitt started working as Princess Diana's horseback riding instructor in 1986. Later, when their relationship was exposed in the media, they called it quits. But this did not stop Hewitt from reflecting on their relationship with love in mind. "I don't regret [meeting her]. I regret some of the things that have been caused by that but not that at all. No way," he said during the interview. Adding, "I think she was quite easy to fall in love with really, so I think I can be forgiven for that." (ANI)
