Funny Patrick Macnee's name should come up. I seem to remember reading in his memoirs about his having a "get to know" type dinner date with Diana when she was selected as his new co-star, and she made it clear at that time that she was only interested in the intellectual type (the clear inference being that he didn't qualify.) Though I can't imagine how, she seems to have gotten the message across in a way that didn't offend. The point being that unless she changed her priorities in thee next few years, I can't see her going for Laz, who despite his other attributes is not what I'd consider a mental giant. At the very least I'd think Diana was too sharp to have believed for a moment that this guy could have been monogamous to anyone.
Sounds to me like another "George story": supposedly lamenting past mistakes but managing to boast in the process.
