Camilla ‘dangerous’ over relationship with press

  • Prince Harry shared details about his relationship with Camilla, Queen Consort, on 60 Minutes Sunday.
  • According to Harry, Camilla had to rehabilitate her image after Prince Charles and Princess Diana divorced.
  • Harry said Camilla was “dangerous” because of her relationship with the British press.

Prince Harry detailed his relationship with his stepmother Camilla, the Queen Consort, during an interview with Anderson Cooper on Sunday’s episode of 60 Minutes.

Harry is currently promoting his memoir, Spare, which is due for release worldwide on Tuesday.

Cooper pointed to Princess Diana’s 1995 BBC interview in which she discussed the affair between then-Prince Charles and Camilla. “There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a little bit tight,” Diana told journalist Martin Bashir.

While speaking to Cooper, Harry agreed. “She was the bad guy. She was the third person in the marriage. She had to rehabilitate her image,” Harry said during the interview.

Harry went on to explain why he and his brother Prince William were trying to convince their father not to marry Camilla. “We didn’t think it was necessary. We thought it would do more harm than good and that just being with him now would certainly be enough. Why go that far if you don’t have to.” Harry said to Cooper.

According to Harry, Camilla had a special relationship with the press in Britain.

“That made her dangerous because of the connections she forged with the British press,” Harry said. “And there was an open willingness on both sides to share information.”

Cooper noted that Harry writes in “Spare” that Camilla “sacrificed me for her personal PR change” and accuses her and Charles of using him and William to get better press coverage for themselves.

The prince also told Cooper he understood why Camilla would go so far to be accepted as king.

“If you, as a family member, believe that being on the front page, positive headlines and positive stories being written about you will improve your reputation or increase your chances of being accepted as a monarch by the British public, then you will.” said Harry to Cooper.

Buckingham Palace officials did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
