The former "Coronation Street" star has revealed that she was asked by James Robertson Justice - a friend of Charles" father Prince Philip - to teach the 69-year-old royal about sex while he was attending Gordonstoun School in Moray, Scotland.

According to the Daily Mail newspaper, Amanda claimed James - who died in 1975 - had called the invitation an "ultimate compliment" but told her not to be "offended" by it.

She explained: "He was obviously very embarrassed and went round and round in circles before it came out. Finally, he admitted he was one of eight people who had been selected to help "launch the royal males into their future life", as he put it.

"Between them, they had to choose anyone they thought would be suitable to teach Prince Charles about sex, and James had decided that I was suitable.

"He actually said: "We don't really want people who are experienced but on the other hand, well, obviously they have to know the ropes. Frankly, the main thing one needs is a sense of humour and I know you have got that.

"James indicated that if things went well, I would be a kind of fixture -- not a girlfriend, but someone in the background. He said: "They [the royals] can't possibly go off into the world without their own person." It was to be a privilege as no payment was offered."

But Amanda - who came out as gay when she was 67 and married Hilary Bonner - turned down the request because she didn't want to be blamed for the experience.

The 82-year-old actress said: "The one thing that put me off was he suggested I take a pair of khaki shorts to go shooting. It was those that did it. I couldn't imagine me, in my wig and false eyelashes, dressed in khaki shorts striding across the moors. I had this terrible image of having to face the Queen over breakfast. What would she say? "So, Amanda, how was it? I also thought that because Charles was so young, it might be a dreadful experience and I might be blamed. I had to say "no"."
