The 68-year-old, who was married to the Duke of Argyll’s son Lord Colin Campbell, said the couple had been discussed among their servants after having a wild wedding night in 1947.
When discussing Prince Phillip in the book entitled, The Queen’s Marriage, she wrote: “He loves the company of beautiful women. He’s a huge flirt.
“I don’t know any pretty girl he hasn’t flirted with. He’s flirted with me before. He’s never said anything untoward, he’s just flirtatious.
“The sort of thing he says is, ‘You’re looking good tonight’, but he is a flirt.”
In another section, she claimed Princess Margaret had lied that Philip was cheating to get back at the Queen, which had made her depressed.
But all of her stories, which she apparently learned second hand from a “variety of sources,” have been dismissed as nonsense by supporters of the royal family. Former butler to the royals, Paul Burrell, was having none of it and said: “Anyone can make up these claims. You can only be a true, reliable witness to history if you are there.
“Lady Colin Campbell was none of those things.”
Her Majesty’s former press secretary, Dickie Arbiter, was not impressed by the book, saying: “I will not dignify anything Lady Colin Campbell writes or says with a comment.”
Author Judy Wade was also suspicious about the stories, saying: “I have never seen Lady Colin Campbell with a member of the Royal Family, or on a job about the Royal Family.”
But Campbell was standing by what she said. She added: “They know I am honest and they’ve known about this book for a while.
“What I have written stands the test of time and if it’s going to come out, it may as well come out through somebody who is even-handed and balanced, and has no anti-Monarchist agenda.”
