It is common knowledge that Prince Charles was never very delicate or caring with Diana. But according to extracts from Prince Harry’s memoirs disclosed by the “Guardian”, the new King of England was even particularly detestable, hence the resentment of the grandson of Elizabeth II, who wanted to move away from the royal family to better flourish.
The long-awaited memoirs of prince harry are to be published on January 10, four months before the coronation of his father, King Charles III. In the face of general impatience and hopes for startling revelations about the royal family, excerpts from the book, entitled Spare (the Substitute) are leaking by the dropper. Among them, a shocking sentence that Charles would have pronounced to his wife, just after the birth of the youngest of his sons.
The indelicacy of Prince Charles vis-à-vis Lady Di
Such a title is explained by the strong resentment of the Duke of Sussex to be the “spare part”. It is therefore unsurprising, indicates the Guardian, the main theme of his book through chapters on his childhood, his schooling, his relationship with his parents and his brother, etc. According to the British newspaper, which had access to a copy of these memoirs, the grandson ofElizabeth II would deliver from the first pages a most sordid story concerning his father, King Charles. He would have, according to his words, declared to Diana on the day the Duke of Sussex was born, in September 1984 : “Wonderful ! Now you have given me an heir and a successor – my job is done.”
The lack of affection at the time brought by Prince Charles to the one who was nicknamed the princess of hearts has been public knowledge for a long time. Although married to the princess, adored all over the world, the heart of the future king was already taken by Camilla Parker Bowleswhom he never stopped loving, at the same time making life difficult for his neglected wife.
The violent argument with his big brother
In his article, published this Thursday, January 5, 2023, the Guardian also evokes the story of a violent argument between Prince Harry and his older brother, the prince williamabout Meghan Markle. “He grabbed me by the collar, ripping my collar, and he knocked me to the ground. I landed on the dog’s bowl, which cracked under my back, the pieces cutting into me. I’m stood there for a while, dazed, then I got up and told him to get out”, recounts the exiled duke with his wife and children in California. According to him, Prince William, like the royal family, has never been held in high esteem Meghan Marklewhom he married in May 2018.
“I would like to get my father back, I would like to get my brother back.”
Prior to the release of Spare, two Harry interviews are due to air in the UK and US this weekend. To appease impatient souls and while speculation about the contents of his memoir continues, several trailers of these interviews have already been released.
In one of them, the duke declares: “I would like to get my father back, I would like to get my brother back.” In view of the latest revelations, it is not certain that this will happen anytime soon…
