Charles and William ‘haven’t spoken to Harry’ since memoir Spare release, source claims

King Charles and Prince William "haven't spoken to Prince Harry " since his memoir Spare was released, a source has claimed.

While the tell-all memoir was officially published on 10 January, many of the bombshell revelations from it came out in the days before, after it was accidentally released early in Spain. Harry has also made further claims in various transatlantic interviews to promote the memoir.

Harry, 38, did not hold back on his account of his life in the royal family and his fractured relationship with his father, Charles, 74, and brother, William, 40, as well as their wives, Queen Consort Camilla, 75, and Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, 40.

In particular, Harry went into detail about his fraught relationship with his brother, even claiming that the Prince of Wales physically attacked him, breaking his necklace and injuring his back on a broken dog bowl as he fell to the floor.


Despite it being claimed that there is a willingness from Charles and other members of the royal family to clear the air prior to the Coronation on 6 May, a source has dismissed this, saying: "There has been no conversations or contact."

Amongst his claims of his father, Harry alleged Charles jokingly referred to him as the “spare” moments after he was born.

He wrote how Charles, the then-Prince of Wales, allegedly told his mother Princess Diana on the day of his birth: “Wonderful! Now you’ve given me an heir and a spare. My work is done.”


William, to whom Harry was once thought to be close, was the subject of many of Harry's barbs, as he described him as his "arch-nemesis."

He also discussed the moment that William met Harry's now-wife Meghan Markle, 41, painting his brother as cold and saying William "recoiled" when California-native Meghan hugged him.

Speaking about his mother-in-law Camilla, Harry described her as a "villain" in a US interview, suggesting she fed stories to the press and even claimed that she "sacrificed me on her personal PR altar" as she needed to "rehabilitate her image" upon marrying Charles.

Camilla and Charles are known to have had an affair whilst the latter was still married to Diana.


It's been claimed that The Royal Family are reportedly set to hold peace talks with Harry ahead of Charles III's Coronation in early May.

A royal source told The Times: "It’s going to take flexibility on all sides, but it can be done. It’s fixable. It needs Harry over here, in the room with the King and Prince of Wales and a couple of other family members.

"Both sides need to hold their hands up and admit we didn’t get everything right, and we got a lot wrong, and we have to say to him: 'We understand the pain you’ve been through.' The King can do it."
