There seems to be no love lost between this stepson and his allegedly evil stepmother. Prince Harry holds nothing back against Camilla, the Queen’s queen.
During an interview with Anderson Cooper Sunday night on “60 Minutes,” while promoting his acclaimed memoir “Spear,” Harry, 38, said Camilla’s need to rehabilitate her image from being “evil” in the British press made her “dangerous” to him, “because The connections she was making were in the British press,” he said.
There was an open willingness on both sides to exchange information. And with a family built on a hierarchy, and with her, on her way to becoming consort, there will be people or bodies left on the street because of it.”
Harry felt like he was one of those “corpses,” he told Cooper, 55, on “60 Minutes.” As he wrote in his book, “Camilla sacrificed me on the altar of her PR.”
Harry has previously spoken about his family throwing him and Meghan Markle under the bus, in order to make themselves look better in the public eye.
Harry alleged in their Netflix documentary “Harry & Meghan” that his father Charles and brother William leaked stories about the couple to the media, and also engaged in “trading” stories. (As he explained, it was when a member of the royal family offered the press a scoop on a different member, in an effort to quell negative stories about himself.)
Harry said that he and William swore never to practice this practice of “deliberating”, but William broke that promise. “To see my brother’s office copy the same thing we promised we’d never do was heartbreaking,” Harry said in the documentary.
Now, he says Camilla left him “like a body in the street” because of her need to give herself a better image than being the “other woman” in King Charles and Princess Diana’s marriage.
After Camilla and Charles had a highly publicized affair that led to Charles and Diana’s divorce, Charles and Camilla finally got married in 2005. Prince Harry wasn’t happy about it, and he was cooking in his book, as was Prince William.
Meanwhile, Cooper, the host of 60 Minutes, pressed Harry about why the brothers had told their father not to marry Camilla. “We didn’t think it was necessary,” he said. “We thought it would do more harm than good. And that if he’s now with his person — that’s certainly enough. Why go to that length when you don’t necessarily need to?”
