Soon the story began to appear in newspapers elsewhere in the world and on websites. It was sourced to Bryan, a brother of George Smith, who once worked at St James's Palace where Prince Charles lives. George told Bryan, who then told everyone, so that story goes. Bryan said George told him that when he went to deliver breakfast one morning, he saw Michael Fawcett, the former royal aide, in bed with Prince Charles. He said: "George said the Royal and his servant were tucked up under the sheets next to each other. George told me there was no physical activity but you don't have to be a brain surgeon to work out what was going on."

A screaming headline in weekly News of the World called attention to this possibility: 'Is Charles Bisexual?' The story quoted Charles' former press advisor Mark Bolland saying Sir Michael Peat, the Prince's private secretary, had asked him a year ago: 'Do you think the Prince of Wales is bisexual?' Bolland's reported response—"I was astonished at Sir Michael's question. I told him emphatically that the Prince was not gay or bisexual."—wasn't enough to quell the talk.
