"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"."
