Scotland Yard has informed Prince Charles and Prince William that revelers at a bizarre dress-up party were photographed wearing Princess Diana's dresses before boxing them up and illegally selling them after her death, The [London] Express reports. The news is part of the investigation against Diana's former butler, Paul Burrell, who has been charged with theft of a good number of Diana's belongings. Burrell is said to have been among those photographed wearing a gown owned by the late princess. There was also a report of a cross-dressing party, unrelated to Burrell, at which a man put on one of Diana's Royal Ascot outfits, which consisted of a hat, a dress, and high-heeled shoes. Despite the reports, no evidence of the cross-dressing parties has been presented to the jury in the Burrell case.
