The royal says that Queen Consort Camilla utilized the British press to improve her reputation in the eyes of the British people in his most recent interview for his shocking biography, Spare.
Harry examines allegations made in his memoir that Camilla leaked information to the press prior to her marriage to King Charles during a 90-minute interview with ITV host Tom Bradby.
The prince discloses in Spare that he and William met Camilla in secret to properly get to know her when their father started seeing her in public. Harry claimed in the interview that his stepmother revealed information about such talks to the media.
“Shortly after our private summits with her, she began to play the long game,” Harry says, per an audiobook reading of the memoir aired in the ITV interview. “A campaign aimed at marriage and eventually the crown, with Pa’s blessing, we presumed. Stories began to appear everywhere in all the papers about her private conversation with Willie. Stories that contained pinpoint accurate details, none of which had come from Willie, of course. They could only have been leaked by the one other person present.”
The top assistant eventually quit, although Camilla’s staff first claimed that her private secretary was to blame for the leak. Instead, Harry alleges that his stepmother was involved in news leaks.
Harry claims that “no part of any of the things that I’ve said are scathing against any member of my family, definitely not my stepmother” when Bradby questions the prince about his “consistently scathing” remarks about Camilla in the book. Additionally, the royal supports his assertions that members of the royal family often smear one another in the media.
