Prince Harry’s explosive interview highlights

Diana, William, Meghan: Prince Harry's explosive interview highlights

Prince Harry insisted that William never tried to stop him from marrying Meghan.


Here are the key takeaways from Prince Harry’s first ever television interview to publicize his new autobiography “Spare,” which airs on Sunday.

About why he wrote the book

Harry told British channel ITV that he had suffered “38 years… of intentional twisting and distortion”.

He said he had “no intention” of harming anyone in his family by releasing the book.

But he needs to speak up because “some members have decided to go to bed with the devil to restore their image”, at the expense of him and his family.

At my mother’s funeral

Harry recalls walking behind Princess Diana’s coffin at her funeral in 1997, when he was just 12 years old.

“You know, the jingle of reins going down The Mall, the sound of hooves going down the concrete and the occasional… gravel underfoot and screams from the crowd,” he recalls.

“But otherwise complete silence is something that will stick with me forever.”

About Diana’s death

Harry said he had read the secret government records of Diana’s death, edited by his personal secretary to provide the most vivid descriptions and photographs of the scene.

He said he drove as an adult through the Pont de l’Alma tunnel in Paris, where she died in a car crash.

“There are a lot of things that cannot be explained,” he said.

“But I’ve been asked before if I’d like to open another investigation. I really don’t see the point at this stage.”

About his relationship with William

Harry talks about the long sibling rivalry with Prince William, how they used to fight as boys, how William ignored him at school and even tried to make him shave before his wedding with Prince William. Meghan.

He accused William of swallowing Meghan’s portrait in the British tabloid media, leading to one time William assaulting him.

Harry says that, if he doesn’t get therapy after his childhood trauma, he’ll fight back.

About William, Kate and Meghan

Harry said William and Kate are legitimate fans of the American film “Suits” in which Meghan starred.

But he said he thought they didn’t expect him to be in a relationship with someone like Meghan and that “there are a lot of stereotypes” about her as a divorced American actress, carrying two lines blood.

That caused “a bit of a barrier” in welcoming her home, he said.

Harry insisted that William never tried to stop him from marrying Meghan.

About the royal racist statement

Harry denied he or Meghan accused the royal family of racism but said there was unconscious bias at the palace that still needed to be addressed.

A recent incident in which a high-ranking courtier, Susan Hussey, repeatedly asked a black British charity worker, Ngozi Fulani, she “really come from”, he said, was an example of that.

on the media

Harry spoke extensively about the British tabloid press, accusing it of complicity and collusion with the palace, as well as racism, cronyism and lies.

He attributes the negative coverage he and Meghan suffered as a result of his legal complaints about phone hacking allegations against three British newspapers.

The broader purpose of the statements, he said, is to curb tabloid excesses.

About what he wants to achieve

Harry said he believes “100 percent” that he can reconcile with his family and that it could have a “worldwide spillover effect”.

But he admits that his father is King Charles III and his brother doesn’t seem to have read his books or watched the interview.


Harry said he is currently “in a good space” to deal with any difficult conversations with his family.

“It’s been tough, I’m not going to lie,” he said of the past few years, but added: “The reality is I’ve never been happier.”
