SPARE leaked: Harry and William begged Charles not to marry Camilla
Prince Harry’s book has gone on sale in Spain, where the Sun newspaper managed to get a copy and have begun translating the memoir.
In one part, the newspaper claims, Prince Harry writes that he and William begged Charles not to marry Camilla over fears she would be their wicked stepmother.
Harry said he and his brother were aware of Camilla as the “other woman” and both had separate meetings with her before she officially joined the family.
He compared seeing her for the first time to avoiding pain while getting an injection.
He writes: “This is nothing. Close your eyes and you won’t even feel it.”
Prince Harry’s Spare leaked
In the private meeting, the Sun says Harry claims Camilla appeared “bored” saying it was “pure formality” as he was not the heir or a major obstacle.
He says they did have small chat about horses.
Also in the book, Harry alleges he wondered if Camilla would one day be his “wicked stepmother.” But says he and William were willing to forgive her in “their hearts” if she could make Charles happy.
The duke writes: “We saw that like us, he wasn’t.
“We could recognise the absent glances, the empty sighs, the frustration always visible on his face.”
He says that he and Willaim promised Charles they would welcome Camilla into the family – as long as he didn’t marry her.
Harry claims they approved of her but “begged” Charles not to wed for a second time after the death of their mother.
Charles did not respond, he alleges.
Both brothers feared she would be unfairly compared to Princess Diana, the book states.
Despite William and Harry’s protestations, a campaign began for the marriage to happen and for Camilla to become Queen.
Camilla leaked details of conversations with William
Harry goes on to accuse Camilla of leaking details of conversations with William to the press.
He says the information could only have come from the communications person that Camilla convinced his dad to hire.
On Charles, Harry said his father opened up about being bullied at school and “nearly never made it,” but carried teddies around all the time to cope.
