Prince Harry launches a violent attack on Camilla, branding her ‘dangerous’ in 60 Minutes interview.
Prince Harry today launched another extraordinary attack on King Charles’ wife Camilla, branding her ‘dangerous’ and a ‘villain’ while continuing his endorsement book for his explosive memoir Spare.
The 38-year-old Duke of Sussex is said to be aiming for the Queen Consort while speaking to CBS News 60 Minutes host Anderson Cooper, who questioned Harry about several very damaging allegations he made about Camilla in the pages of the book had made.
Referring to a 1995 interview in which his mother, Princess Diana, famously referred to Camilla as the “third person in their marriage,” Harry says that admission transformed today’s Queen Consort into a “villain,” adding: ‘She needed to rehabilitate her image.’
According to Harry – who also reveals in his book that he and William “begged” their father not to marry Camilla – this desire to change her public image has made her “dangerous”.
He accuses his stepmother of “information trading” with the press in order to write more positive stories about herself, before sensationally suggesting that her “connections” to the media would result in “leaving people or corpses in the streets “. .
Prince Harry has launched another round of sensational attacks on King Charles’ wife Camilla in a new TV interview to promote his explosive memoir Spare
Speaking to CBS News’ 60 Minutes, Harry, 38, branded his stepmother “dangerous” and called her a “bad guy.”
The Duke claimed Camilla has “made connections” with the press in the UK to try to “rehabilitate her image” and write “positive stories” about her
‘[Her need to rehabilitate her image] made her dangerous because of the connections she forged within the British press,” he told Cooper, according to an official transcript of the interview – obtained by DailyMail.com before the interview aired.
“And there was an open willingness on both sides to share information. And with a family built on hierarchy, and with her on her way to becoming Queen Consort, people or corpses would be left in the streets because of it.
Princess Diana’s interview with the BBC’s Martin Bashir in 1995 marked the first time she publicly claimed that Charles and Camilla had had an affair during their marriage to the then-Prince of Wales.
At the time, she sensationally told Bashir, “There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a little full.”
While the Duke once again blasted his closest family members in the 60 Minutes interview – just over an hour after his meeting with British TV presenter Tom Bradby aired – DailyMail.com can reveal that he also:
- Claims he was ‘not invited’ on the plane taking his family to Balmoral when they learned the Queen was unwell
- Admits he used to watch videos of his mother Diana and “did through memories of her” to make himself cry
- Says his brother, Prince William, initially refused to believe Diana was really dead and that they both believed she would call us and we would go to her.
- He reveals he has taken psychedelic drugs like ayahuasca and psilocybin as “experimental treatments” and says they “removed the misery of loss for him”.
- Believes psychedelics can “act as medicine” for those “suffering from tremendous loss, grief, or trauma”
- Suggests he and Meghan will never give up their titles because ‘what a difference it would make’
- Defends his decision to air his grievances against his family so publicly and suggests public attacks are the only “language they might understand”.
- Admits he hasn’t spoken to his brother or his father “for a while”.
Princess Diana’s interview with the BBC’s Martin Bashir in 1995 marked the first time she publicly addressed claims that Charles and Camilla had an affair during their marriage
His latest attack on Camilla comes after he revealed in his book Spare that he and William “begged” Charles not to marry her
Harry also claims that what he saw as Camilla’s desire to be on the front page [and] have written positive stories about it [her]’ came from his family’s belief that positive media coverage would ‘enhance your reputation or increase the chances of you being accepted as a monarch by the British public’.
“If you think being on the front page as a family member, having positive headlines and writing positive stories about you will improve your reputation or increase the chances of you being accepted as a monarch by the British public, then you will do that,” he adds.
The Duke’s sensational public attack on Camilla is the latest in a series of barbs he has hurled at his stepmother – having already painted what Cooper described as very “unfavorable” in his explosive memoir Spare, accidentally published in Spain Representation” she referred to last week.
In the book, Harry makes similar allegations against Camilla regarding her so-called “connections” with the press, accusing her of leaking information to the media as part of a “campaign” to take the crown.
In an extraordinary passage in his autobiography, the Duke of Sussex writes: “Shortly after our private meetings with her, she began to develop her long-term strategy, a campaign aimed at marriage and, in time, the crown (with the blessing of our fathers, we thought).
“News appeared in all the newspapers about her conversations with Willy, stories that told many little details, none of which, of course, came from my brother.”
The Duke also claims that he and his brother William “begged” the then-Prince of Wales not to remarry after Princess Diana’s death, fearing she would be her “wicked stepmother”.
During his 60 Minutes interview, Harry said that both he and William didn’t think it was “necessary” for Charles to marry Camilla, telling Cooper, “We didn’t think it was necessary. We thought it would do more harm than good and if he were on his person now that would be safe enough. Why go so far when it’s not absolutely necessary?
“We wanted him to be happy. And we saw how happy he was with her. So, at the time, it was, “Okay.”’
Charles had tried to win his sons over before asking the public to accept Camilla, the book claims. Amazingly, Harry then says that meeting the future Queen Consort for the first time was like an “injection.” He later says that he and William Camilla ultimately agreed.
He writes: “I remember wondering … if she would be cruel to me; if she were like all the bad stepmothers in the stories.’
