Prince Harry has made further allegations against the royal family in two TV interviews about his new memoir, Spare.
The Duke of Sussex spoke to ITV’s Tom Bradby on Sunday and CBS’ Anderson Cooper early Monday morning to discuss the revelations made in the book, including that he was physically assaulted by his brother, the Prince of Wales and that he tried drugs including cocaine and cannabis as a teenager.
In the interviews, Prince Harry delved even further into his personal struggles, further accusing Prince William and the Princess of Wales of stereotyping the Duchess of Sussex. He also accused the Queen Consort of leaking stories to the press.
Here are the top 10 things we learned.
“Kate and William stereotyped Meghan”
The Duke of Sussex accused the Prince and Princess of Wales of “stereotyping” Meghan as a “divorced multiracial American actress” in his ITV interview.
Prince Harry told presenter Bradby that his brother, Prince William, and his wife never got along with Meghan “from the start.”
“In the beginning there was a lot of stereotypes that I was also guilty of,” he said.
“American actress, right, and that played out in the British press in the media at the time too. Some of the things that my brother and sister-in-law – some of the way they acted or behaved – definitely felt to me like stereotypes unfortunately really get in the way of them a little bit, you know, introduce them or welcome them. “
Diana’s death ‘unexplained’
Prince Harry said “a lot of things remain unclear” about his mother’s death 26 years later and he still has questions about the tragedy.
Recalling the “crazy” moment driving through the tunnel himself, he believed it was “nearly physically impossible to lose control of a vehicle unless you’re completely blinded at the wheel.”
The Duke of Sussex said he believed the “end result” would not have happened if the paparazzi had not followed his mother’s car.
He told Bradby: “There are a lot of things that are unexplained. I’ve been asked before if I want to open another request. I don’t really see the point at this stage.”
“Pa was never made for single parents”
Prince Harry questioned whether his father, King Charles, had the “patience” and “time” for parenthood.
“He always seemed like he wasn’t quite ready for parenthood: the responsibility, the patience, the time. Even he, though a proud man, would have admitted that. But single parent? Pa was never made for this. To be fair, he tried,” he wrote spare part.
But he said he will “always love” his dad despite their current challenges.
Harry hasn’t spoken to his brother or father in a while
Prince Harry admitted that in the 60 minutes Interview that he is not currently speaking to his brother and father.
“Are you talking to William now? asked Cooper.
The Duke said, “Er, no at the moment. But I look forward to the fact that we can find peace.”
He went on to say he hadn’t spoken to his father “for quite a while.”
Royals are ‘to bed with the devil’
Members of the royal family have been “in bed with the devil,” Prince Harry claimed when speaking about information allegedly leaked to the press.
He told Bradby, “After many, many years of being told lies about me and my family, there comes a point where, going back to the relationship between certain family members and the tabloids, those certain members have decided to go to bed with the devil, right? To rehabilitate their image.
“If you have to or want to do this, go for it. Well that’s a choice. That’s up to you. But the moment this rehabilitation comes at the expense of others, me, other members of my family, then I draw the line.”
Camilla was a “bad guy” who was “dangerous”.
The Duke of Sussex described Camilla as “dangerous” because she had to rehabilitate her image after being portrayed as a “bad guy” in his parents’ divorce.
He echoed his mother’s words by saying on US television, “She was the third person in their marriage.”
Describing the circumstances of Camilla’s relationship with her father, the Duke said: “She was the bad guy. She had to rehabilitate her image.
@That made her dangerous because of the connections she made within the British press. And there was an open willingness on both sides to exchange information. With a family built on hierarchy, and with her on her way to the queen consort, people or corpses would be left in the streets because of it.”
Harry breaks the silence over Jeremy Clarkson’s comments
Prince Harry broke his silence on comments former Top Gear star Jeremy Clarkson recently made about his wife on The Sun.
Mr Clarkson wrote in The Sun that he dreams “of the day when she will be forced to parade naked through the streets of every town in Britain while the crowd say ‘Shame!’ chanted. and throw clods of feces at them”.
The Duke of Sussex said it was “terrible and hurtful and cruel to my wife, but it also encourages other people in the UK and around the world, especially men, to go and think that treating women this way is acceptable.” “.
Lady Hussey “not to blame”
The Duke of Sussex defended the late Queen’s former lady-in-waiting, who was accused of racism, claiming she “never meant any harm”.
Lady Hussey gave up the roll of honor after asking Ngozi Fulani, the director of east London charity Sistah Space, during an event at Buckingham Palace where she was really from.
“I am delighted that Ngozi Fulani has been invited to the Palace to sit down and reconcile with Lady Susan Hussey as Meghan and I love Susan Hussey. (Meghan) thinks she’s great,” Prince Harry told Bradby.
“And I know what she meant too – she never meant anything bad.
“But the reaction from the British press and people on the internet to the stories they wrote has been appalling.”
Harry doesn’t think the royal family is racist
The Duke of Sussex denied accusing his family of racism in the bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021.
Bradby said, “In the Oprah interview you accused members of your family of racism…”
The Duke said, “No, I haven’t. The British press said that…did Meghan ever mention they were racist?”
Bradby tried to explain that Meghan had told Oprah that there had been comments within the family about Archie’s skin colour.
The Duke of Sussex said “there was,” but “I wouldn’t.” [describe that as racist]not to have lived in this family”.
Harry wasn’t invited on the plane to Balmoral when Queen died
Prince Harry spoke of not being invited on the plane to fly to Balmoral when the late Queen died.
He said, “I asked my brother, I said, ‘What are your plans? How do you and Kate get up there?’ And then, a few hours later, all the family members who live in the Windsor and Ascot area jumped on a plane together, a 12-, 14-, maybe 16-seat plane.”
“You weren’t invited on this plane?” asks Cooper.
“I was not invited,” replied the Duke.
