Relations between Camilla Parker Bowles, 74, and her stepson, Prince Harry, 37, have always been very tense. The youngest son of Prince Charles, 73, has had icy relations with his mother-in-law for several years, as Gala magazine recalls. Many events have come to throw oil on the fire over the years. In turn, Camilla and Harry launch reproaches more or less direct. The Duchess of Cornwall, 74, recently resented Prince Harry for tarnishing the image of the Prince of Wales. The explosive statements made by Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, 40, on the Oprah Winfrey show have indeed shaken many within the British royal family.
Things are not about to get better between Lady Diana’s youngest son and his stepmother, Camilla Parker Bowles. A decision made by the Duchess of Cornwall would have particularly angered him. In an article from April 23, 2022, the Mirror returns to this anecdote according to which the second wife of Prince Charles changed Prince Harry’s bedroom into a dressing room. It was journalist and friend of Princess Diana Tina Browns who revealed the story in her book The Palace Papers: Inside the House of Windsor, the Truth and the Turmoil. The book is slated for release next May. According to this book, Camilla Parker Bowles would have allowed herself to transform Prince Harry’s former bedroom at Highgrove House into a dressing room.
Camilla Parker Bowles: it would not really be the wardrobe that would have offended Prince Harry
Paul Burrell, a former royal aide, believes Harry’s hatred of his stepmother stems from another source. According to him, the little brother of Prince William, 39, would especially feel betrayed because Camilla was named future queen consort by Queen Elizabeth II of England, 96. This decision by his grandmother is “like a red rag for a bull for Harry”, according to Paul Burrell’s explanation in Express UK. “I don’t think he has any contempt for Camilla as a person,” he explained. “I just think it irritates him and he feels betrayed that she will now be queen, when it should have been his mother,” he concluded.
