In a Jan. 8 interview on 60 Minutes, Harry claimed his stepmother, Queen Consort Camilla, had leaked stories about the royal family to the British press in an attempt to “rehabilitate her image” after she was blamed for King Charles and Princess Diana's failed marriage.

Harry called Camilla “dangerous” because of the “connections” she was building with the British press. “With a family built on hierarchy, and with her on the way to being Queen consort, there was gonna be people or bodies left in the street because of that,” he said.

Harry also revealed that he and his brother, Prince William, had at one point asked their father not to marry Camilla. “We didn’t think it was necessary. We thought that it was gonna cause more harm than good,” he said.

However, they eventually accepted Charles and Camilla’s desire to marry. “We wanted him to be happy. And we saw how happy he was with her,” Harry said.

Nearly two years after Meghan Markled opened up about her experience with suicidal ideation, Harry told ITV on Jan. 8 that he was afraid of becoming a “single dad” like his father. “I don’t want history to repeat itself,” he said.


In his memoir, Harry accused William of calling Meghan “difficult” and “rude,” which sparked an argument between them that lead William to supposedly attack Harry. The Duke of Sussex told ITV that his brother “wanted” Harry to “hit him back, but I chose not to.”

While appearing on GMA on Jan. 9, Harry addressed his complicated relationship with his brother. “There has always been this competition between us,” he said, explaining it was fueled by the idea that William was always the "heir," while Harry was the "spare."

Harry blamed the British press for affecting his relationship with William: “They pitched the Wales against the Sussexes. They always pitched us against each other. They pitched Kate and Meghan against each other.”

On the rumor Meghan supposedly made Kate Middleton cry over a bridesmaid dress in 2018, Harry said it “wasn’t the case,” and he needed to set the record straight in his book “for historical reference,” explaining, “The truth needs to be there and it needs to be from me.”


Harry also revealed Queen Elizabeth II wasn’t “upset” about his and Meghan’s royal exit: “She knew what was going on, she knew how hard it was. She never said to me that she was angry. I think she was sad that it had got to that point.”


According to GMA host Michael Strahan, lawyers for Buckingham Palace said they would only comment on Harry’s interview if they were to receive a copy of his full interview. However, ABC News couldn’t comply since it is against their policy.

Harry’s memoir Spare will hit shelves on Jan. 10.
