Camilla’s advice to Meghan left Harry fuming as it would ‘get them out of the picture’


Prince Harry appeared in not one, but two, televised interviews on Sunday evening.

Prior to his explosive US interview with 60 Minutes, it has been revealed Harry’s stepmother, Queen Camilla, offered Meghan advice – which left Prince Harry fuming. In his interviews, with both 60 Minutes and ITV, Harry took potshots towards Camilla and according to Harry’s forthcoming memoir, Harry was not happy with advice the new Queen gave his wife during the early days of backlash.

Writing in his memoir, Harry questioned his father on why he did not feel anguish and pain on behalf of himself.

Speaking of Meghan’s reaction, Harry wrote: “Meg, meanwhile, reached out to Camilla, who tried to counsel her by saying this was just what the press always did to newcomers, that it would all pass in due time, that Camilla had been the bad guy once.

“The implication being what? Now it was Meg’s turn? As if it were apples to apples.”

Harry also said Camilla had suggested to his wife that he should become Governor General of Bermuda, adding this would “solve all our problems by removing us from the red-hot centre of the maelstrom”.

In his memoir, Harry suggested this comment left him fuming.

He wrote: “Right, right, I thought, and one added bonus of that plan would be to get us out of the picture”.

In his second interview, with Anderson Cooper, Harry referred to his stepmother as “dangerous” and a “villian”.

He suggested this was due to her need to rehabilitate her public image after the backlash she received during the breakdown of his parents’ marriage.

Harry told Anderson Cooper that Camilla had an “open willingness” to trade information with the British press, suggesting this made her a threat to the Royal Family.

Harry has also claimed he and William previously initially didn’t want their father to marry Camilla.
