In his new book, Prince Harry claims that he questioned if Camilla Parker Bowles would one day become his “wicked stepmother,” and that she leaked tales about him to the press.

He also claims that the first time she met him, she appeared “bored,” and that he assumed she did not consider him important because he was the second son.

The specifics are revealed in reports by the British tabloids The Sun and the Daily Mail, both of which appear to be based on a Spanish version of the book, Spare, which appears to have gone on sale prematurely.

It is not expected to be ready until next Tuesday.

According to The Sun, Harry and William assured Charles that they would welcome Camilla into their family but “begged” him not to marry her. In 2005, he married Camilla.

Harry expressed doubts that Camilla would become his “wicked stepmother,” but he and his brother, whom he refers to as Willy throughout and who refers to him as Harold, were willing to accept her if it made their father happy.

The Daily Mail, like The Sun, received the Spanish-language edition of the book. It was apparently publicly available for purchase in the country, making a mockery of publisher Penguin Random House’s massive security operation to safeguard the tome.

According to the Mail, Charles tried to “win over the kids,” but when Harry first saw Camilla, he told himself that it was like getting an “injection,” writing, “Close your eyes and you won’t even feel it.”

“I recall wondering… if she would be unkind to me; if she would be like all the evil stepmothers in the stories,” he writes, according to the Mail.

“Willy had been suspicious of the Other Woman for a long time, which perplexed and troubled him; when those suspicions were verified, he felt terrible sorrow for not doing or saying anything previously,” he continues.

The novel begins with a narrative of a secret graveyard meeting between Harry, William, and Charles following Prince Philip’s funeral in April 2021, with Harry having sought a “secret rendezvous with my older brother and my father.”

According to Harry, the meeting took occurred near the graves of King Edward VIII, who abdicated in favor of Wallis Simpson.

“I looked at Willy, really looked at him, perhaps for the first time since we were kids, taking in every detail: his usual frown, which had always been the norm in his encounters with me,” Harry supposedly says.

“My beloved brother, my archenemy, how did we come to this?” Harry writes. I was so exhausted. “I wished to return home.”

“Willy, this was intended to be our abode,” Harry writes about Frogmore Cottage. We were going to live here for the rest of our lives.”

“You left, Harold,” William supposedly said.

“Yeah, and you know why,” Harry responds.

“Honestly, no,” his brother said. Harold… no way.”

Harry stated “Charles looked at me with a glance that said, ‘Me neither.'”

In another portion, Harry claimed that William threw him to the ground, breaking a dog dish, after a confrontation in which William branded Harry’s wife Meghan Markle “difficult,” “rude,” and “abrasive.”

In an excerpt obtained by Page Six, Harry also attempts to blame Prince William and Kate Middleton for his decision to wear a Nazi outfit to a January 2005 costume party.

Harry recalls that he called his brother for guidance when he couldn’t decide between a pilot costume and a Nazi uniform.

“I called Willy and Kate and asked them what they thought. They said that I was wearing a Nazi outfit.”

“They both howled,” Harry says after trying on the costume in front of them. Worse than Willy’s leotard ensemble! Much more absurd! That was, after all, the point.”

“It’s unusual as you would think that Harry would take ownership of this and just go on and not pull his brother into it,” a “senior publishing source” who has read the book tells Page Six, “but he makes it apparent that he feels passionate about William’s role in the incident.”
