Prince Harry claims he ‘never intended to harm his family’
Prince Harry has boldly claimed that he “never intended to harm his family” with the brutal content of his bombshell memoir – despite the book and the various television interviews the Duke has made to publicize it, which contain several very damaging attacks on the royals .
The 38-year-old father-of-two defended his decision to air his grievances about his family so publicly during a 60-minute interview with Anderson Cooper on Sunday – which aired just over an hour after Harry’s nearly identical one-on – a conversation with the British television channel ITV.
When asked by Cooper about a particularly “cutting” passage in his book, in which he describes his brother William’s “alarming baldness” and his “famous resemblance” to their mother Princess Diana — which the Duke wrote, “faded with time , with age”. – Harry claimed that he did not see anything “cutting” in this passage or anywhere else in the memoir.
“I don’t see it as cutting at all,” Harry retorted.
Prince Harry insists he “never intended to hurt his family” with the content of his new bombshell memoir Spare – and claims he just wanted to tell his “truth”.
During an interview with 60 Minutes, Harry said he had no choice but to voice his grievances about the royals publicly because when he did so privately, stories “were leaked”.
“Um, you know, my brother and I love each other. I love him very much. There has been a lot of pain between the two of us, especially in the last six years.’
The Duke went on to insist that he “never intended to hurt his family” with the book’s release, but claimed that he felt the need to share his story publicly to “smash the idea” that Meghan ” was the one who destroyed his relationship with his brother”.
“Nothing I have written, nothing I have recorded, should ever harm my family,” he claimed.
“But it gives a complete picture of the situation growing up and also squashes this notion that somehow my wife was the one who destroyed the relationship between these two brothers.”
Prince Harry’s suggestion that he “never intended” to upset his family seems at odds with the content of his explosive book – which was accidentally released ahead of the weekend in Spain, days ahead of its scheduled January 10 release.
The premature release of the memoir revealed a long list of the Duke’s damaging claims and allegations against his family — with Cooper himself noting in the introduction to his interview that it’s “far from parsimonious in its unflattering portrayal of the royal family.”
Attacks rain down in every chapter of the book, from accusations that his brother assaulted him to claims that William and her father Charles confronted him after Prince Philip’s funeral
Cooper pointed to one particularly “cutting” passage in which Harry Williams describes “alarming baldness,” but the Duke retorted, “I don’t see it as cutting at all.”
Attacks rain down in every chapter: from accusations that his brother subsequently attacked him over Meghan, to claims that William and Charles confronted Harry after Prince Philip’s funeral and were “looking for a fight.”
Harry also claims that William and Kate – his once-adored sister-in-law, who is now portrayed as cold and unfriendly – urged him to wear his infamous Nazi costume.
The prince, who quit as working royal and moved to California in search of more privacy with Meghan, recalls dozens of family feuds and intimate conversations in distressing detail. He also reveals his father’s medical issues and the fact that the king still carries around his favorite teddy bear.
However, according to Harry, none of this should “harm” his family – and the prince claimed to Cooper that he had no choice but to smack the royal family so publicly – because it’s the only “language they might understand”. and claimed he tried to have “private” talks, but “every time … there were briefings and leaks and planting stories against me and my wife.”
He continued, “You know, the family motto is ‘never complain never explain’ but it’s just a motto and it doesn’t really hold up…”
When asked by Cooper if there had been “a lot of complaints and a lot of explanations through leaks,” Harry claimed, “Through leaks. You will feed or converse with the correspondent and that correspondent will literally be fed information and write the story.
Just before his 60 Minutes interview aired, the Duke launched another attack on his family in a meeting with British ITV journalist Tom Bradby, in which he compared the royals to “abusers”.
“And they will end up saying they have reached out to Buckingham Palace for comment. But the whole story comes from Buckingham Palace.”
Echoing the attacks he and Meghan made on the royals in their recent Netflix docuseries, the Duke said the couple had been repeatedly “betrayed” by their family, telling Cooper, “If we’ve been around for the past six years has been told, “We can’t make a statement to protect you, but you’re doing it for other family members, there comes a point when silence is treason.”
In another blow to his family – and what he claims is the constant “leaking” of stories by the royals to the press – Harry said he’d rather speak out himself than have his grievances about the monarchy through “someone else” or voicing an ‘unnamed’ source’.
“So now I’m going to try to speak a language that you might understand, and I’m going to sit here and tell you the truth with the words that come out of my mouth, rather than using someone else, an unnamed source, to Feeding lies or narrative into a tabloid medium that literally radicalizes its readers, only to potentially harm my family, wife and children,” he said.
Ironically, while defending the bombshells contained in his memoir, Harry simultaneously launched further attacks on his family and once described Queen Consort Camilla as a “villain” whom he considered “dangerous”.
Just before his interview aired on 60 Minutes, the Duke launched another extraordinary attack on his family in a conversation with British ITV journalist Tom Bradby, in which he compared the royals to “abusers” and suggested the monarchy was helping his to destroy”. and Meghan’s reputation.
