Harry’s Sandhurst classmates poke hole in Duke’s Army narrative


Prince Harry opened up about his decade-long career in the military in his new memoir, Spare.

Prince Harry: Spare becomes fastest selling non-fiction book

Now, a week on from the claim that Prince Harry killed 25 Taliban, some of his Sandhurst classmates have poked holes in his revelations.

Speaking exclusively to the Mail, the classmates have said that, while a student, the 38-year-old was actually told the complete opposite.

They claimed that Harry’s presented representation of army teaching was “wrong by 180 degrees” and that they were in fact taught that ‘othering’ and dehumanising was completely wrong.

Other officer cadets claimed that they, and Harry, were warned such cognitive biases were highly dangerous.

Harry’s claim of the “killings” happened on his second tour of Afghanistan. In his memoir, Harry wrote that “they” – his Army instructors – trained me to “other” them and they trained me well”.

William responds to Harry’s fears that George, Charlotte or Louis ‘could end up like him’

Prince Harry has shared his concerns over Princes George and Louis and Princess Charlotte that one of his nephews or niece “could end up like him” as the “spare” of the family.

While Prince George is currently next in line to the throne after his father, the Prince of Wales, his own future children would push his sister and brother further down the line of succession.

The Duke of Sussex gave an interview to The Telegraph in which he acknowledged “at least” one of the Wales children could end up in his position.

He said: “I know that out of those three children, at least one will end up like me, the spare.

“And that hurts, it worries me.”

Harry hopes big brother William ‘can see the benefits of therapy’

Prince Harry has claimed that he wishes his brother, Prince William “would be able to feel the same benefits” that he has experienced since seeking therapy.

The Duke of Sussex was in conversation with The Telegraph where he spoke about his memoir, which was officially published on January 10.

Prince Harry, 38, has been travelling around to give interviews as his tell-all memoir has been released globally.

In various media interactions and in the book the Duke of Sussex spoke openly about his use of ayahuasca, a psychedelic, with a professional during his treatment.

He said that it was this experience that prompted “the acceptance and realisation that she [Princess Diana] has gone, but that she wants me to be happy and that she’s very much present in my life.

“As two brothers, if one of you goes through that experience and the other one doesn’t, it naturally creates a further divide between you. Which is really sad.

“But as much as William was the first person to even suggest therapy, I just wish that he would be able to feel the same benefits of that as opposed to believing what he doesn’t need to.”

Harry opens up about Afghanistan as he would ‘close my eyes’

Prince Harry has shared his technique for transporting himself back to flying missions in Afghanistan as he recalled his experiences in the war torn nation to his ghostwriter for his memoir Spare.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph the Duke of Sussex said that he would “close” his eyes and himself “back in the cockpit” and fly the same missions again.

The Duke also revealed that his ghostwriter J R Moehringer was “amazed” by the level of detail that he could recall.

Harry accuses Charles of being jealous and fearing ‘resplendent’ Meghan would steal the limelight

Prince Harry has claimed King Charles wanted to avoid supporting Meghan financially for fear that the “resplendent” Duchess would steal the limelight from him.

In one of many comparisons the Duke makes between Meghan and his late mother throughout his new memoir Spare, Harry claimed the King was worried she would be the next Diana, and expressed a hope that Meghan would continue working as an actress after marrying into the family.

According to the book, Harry told his father that Meghan would likely not continue to do so, to which he says the King responded: “Well, my dear son, you already know that we don’t have money to spare.”
