British royal PRINCE WILLIAM has spurned the launch of a book about his
late mother DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES to go partying with former SPICE GIRL,
The heir to the throne, 22, was invited to Wednesday's (01SEP04) launch of
DIANA: THE PORTRAIT - the first authorised biography of the princess - three
weeks ago, (begs16AUG04) but told organisers he couldn't go because he'd
arranged to go to
Halliwell's favourite London nightclub BOUJIS, reports Britain's THE SUN
He's fancied the singer since they met in 1997 for the premiere of
SPICEWORLD: THE MOVIE and was devastated to discover she had left the club
before he arrived.
Diana's close friend MIKE WHITHAM complains, "I am disappointed he could
not attend the book launch. I have spoken to at least three other charities
represented by Diana and they have expressed their disappointment too."
The Prince's friend says, "Wills was really p*ssed off. He wanted to spend
time with Geri. He has always fancied her."
William's brother PRINCE HARRY, 19, was unable to attend the book launch
because he is travelling in Africa and the Princess's ex-husband PRINCE CHARLES
has official business in Ulster.
