Prince Harry’s memoir Spare has made a series of bombshell allegations against the Royal Family, with the Duke of Sussex being particularly critical of his stepmother Camilla. The Duke of Sussex described the Queen Consort as a “villain” and “dangerous” while promoting his memoir in the US. A new Express.co.uk poll has found over 90 percent of readers agreeing that Harry has gone too far in his attacks on Camilla.
Harry told Anderson Cooper on CBS’ 60 Minutes ahead of the publication of Spare that following Camilla’s marriage into the Firm 2005 she needed to work hard to improve her reputation. He said: “She was the villain, she was a third person in the marriage, she needed to rehabilitate her image.”
He continued: “That made her dangerous because of the connections that she was forging within the British press. And there was open willingness on both sides to trade of information. And with a family built on hierarchy, and with her on the way to being Queen Consort, there was going to be people or bodies left in the street because of that.”
Royal biographer and editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, Ingrid Seward said Harry’s comments on Camilla are “unnecessary”. She told The Mirror: “Prince Harry’s attacks on his stepmother the Queen Consort are unnecessary and gratuitously nasty. Camilla has never been anything but kind to Harry and took great care to keep out of his orbit.”
A source told US Weekly last week about Charles’ feelings towards Harry’s attacks. They said: “Charles is distraught. He’s angry and outraged that Harry’s aired so many embarrassing and damaging assertions, and it’s put him in a terrible position with Camilla of course now that she’s been dragged into the equation.”
In a poll that ran from 11.45am on Tuesday, January 10, to 11am on Wednesday, January 18, Express.co.uk asked readers: “Has Prince Harry gone too far in his attacks on Camilla?”
Overall, 5,412 votes were cast with the overwhelming majority of readers, 92 percent (4,980 people) answering “yes” Harry had gone too far.
Whereas seven percent (393 people) said “no” he has not gone too far, and a further one percent (39 people) said they did not know either way.
