Camilla Tominey: Prince Harry’s damning revelations prove he is the ultimate ‘spare’

In case you missed it, here’s what our associate editor Camilla Tominey made of the revelations from Spare which leaked earlier this week.

Harry’s claim in his forthcoming autobiography that William not only physically attacked him but also encouraged him to wear a Nazi uniform to a fancy dress party, suggests he is the ultimate “spare” – an over-pampered prince wanting all the privileges but none of the responsibility of royal life.

Rather than taking ownership of his actions, everything is everyone else’s fault.

Watch: Harry and William’s ‘kitchen fight’ mocked by US talk show host

Prince Harry’s memoir has been mocked by a US TV host in a skit reenacting his alleged fight with the Prince of Wales.

In one excerpt from the tell-all memoir, Prince Harry references an alleged row with his brother in the kitchen of Nottingham Cottage, London – where he lived with Meghan following their engagement – in which Harry claimed Prince William grabbed him by the collar and threw him to the floor, shattering a dog bowl in the process.

Talk show host Jimmy Kimmel offered his interpretation of the allegation in a sketch titled Two Princes: A True Story on his chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The skit sees actors, dressed as pop star Prince in purple feather boas and velvet robes, portraying the Duke of Sussex and the Prince of Wales.

Prince Harry ‘written out of King’s coronation’

In other royal news as we await tonight’s broadcast, there will be no role for Prince Harry at the King’s Coronation, despite the Duke of Sussex planning to attend, according to reports.

The historic ceremony at Westminster Abbey is scheduled for May 6 and is likely to take place amid continuing rancour over the Duke’s memoir, in which the King is characterised as jealous of the popularity of his sons and daughters-in-law.

Traditionally at coronations, the royal dukes are required to kneel before the new monarch and “pay homage” before touching the crown and kissing them on the right cheek.

But the King has reportedly scrapped the tradition and only Prince William will perform an act of homage, The Sunday Times reported. “As things stand, there is no role for Harry in the service,” a source told the paper.

Queen Elizabeth’s ‘cryptic’ response on Meghan marriage question

Queen Elizabeth II gave the Duke of Sussex a “cryptic” response when he asked her permission to marry Meghan, he reveals in his memoir.

The Duke feared he was “doomed to be the next Margaret”, he writes, in reference to his great aunt, Princess Margaret, who was not allowed to marry the love of her life, divorcee Peter Townsend.

The Duke recounts the moment he plucked up the courage to ask the Queen in the book.

He admits he was “scared” and always nervous in her presence. And the moment was made even more awkward when the Queen simply replied: “Well then I suppose I have to say yes.”
