Harry claims Prince William also thought their father 'planted' news

Prince William was ‘seething’ with rage as he accused his father and Camilla of ‘planting’ stories about him and his family in the press, brother Harry’s memoir claims

  • Harry claims William acknowledged Charles and Camilla were ‘planting stories’
  • In his memoir Spare, he writes that Prince William called him ‘seething with rage’
  • He claims William believed their father’s team planted stories about he and Kate 
  • Harry blames member of his father’s press team for ‘peddling’ fake stories 
  • In the memoir, he alleges this was done to help boost Camilla’s reputation 

Prince William rowed with his father and step-mother after accusing them of ‘planting’ stories in the media about himself and his family, Harry claims.

The prince says he took a call in April 2019 from his brother who was ‘seething’ with rage.

‘Something had happened between him and Pa and Camilla. I couldn’t get the whole story, he was talking too fast, and was way too upset,’ Harry writes in his memoir, Spare.

‘I gathered that Pa and Camilla’s people had planted a story or stories about him and Kate and the kids, and he wasn’t going to take it any more.

‘Give Pa and Camilla an inch, he said, and they take a mile. They’ve done this to me for the last time.

‘I got it. They’d done the same to me and Meg as well.’

Harry blames a ‘gung-ho’ member of his father’s press office for ‘peddling’ fake or unflattering stories as part of a ‘campaign’ of getting good press for the now King and Queen Consort

But Harry blames a ‘gung-ho’ member of his father’s press office for ‘peddling’ fake or unflattering stories as part of a ‘campaign’ of getting good press for the now King and Queen Consort, at the expense of other family members.

He also blamed the same person, whom he doesn’t name but describes as a woman, of leaking that he, Harry, had gone on a hunting trip to Germany in 2017 that ‘made me out to be some fat-bottomed seventeenth-century baron who craved blood in trophies’.

In fact – he says – he had been ‘working with German farmers to cull wild boar and save their crops’.

Harry goes so far as to claim his German story was ‘swapped’ for ‘better access’ to his father and suppressing stories about a member of Camilla’s family.

He even claims he had ‘proof’ from reporters inside ‘actual newsrooms’ that he and his brother were being sold out.

Like so many of Harry’s claims, however, there is much that is confused and wrong.

For example, Charles’ PR team was headed up by a man in both 2019 and 2017.

And Harry’s hunting trip only leaked because Germany’s biggest newspaper was tipped off by locals that Harry and his friends had arrived in the country on a private jet.

They also managed to track down which estate they were on because he had attended the wedding of the landowner – nicknamed The Boar Terminator – previously and classed him as a good friend.

Harry does not name the staff member he holds responsible, but goes on to describe a showdown that he and William had previously had with their father over said person. 

Charles was said to have angrily refuted their claims and denied that his staff would ever leak stories deliberately.

Harry said he was grateful, however, that William had phoned him to talk about his problems given the state of their relationship in 2019 and took the opportunity to highlight his and Meghan’s concerns with the institution.

He said his brother snapped back: ‘I’ve got different issues with you two!’

‘The reason why he and Meghan left was not because they were forced out, as they claim, or that they dramatically fled for their lives,’ one royal source said

Harry claims to have had his brother on speakerphone as he stood in the garden at Frogmore Cottage at the time, but quickly switched back to his phone as he realised Meghan was approaching him.

But he says his wife could still hear his brother shouting and walked back into the house ‘holding her stomach’ – the incident coming just before she gave birth to son, Archie, with tears in her eyes.
