Difficult memories for the Duke of Sussex
In his memoir, Prince Harry skins every member of the royal family. He returns in particular to the relationship between his father, Charles III and his mother, Lady Diana. In 1997, when the latter died, the Duke of Sussex found himself with his brother and his father. In his book, he evokes the months which followed the death of his mother. He accompanies his father to Africa in order to meet Nelson Mandela and Spice Girls, who are on tour. “I was happy to accompany him. To go somewhere else, away from Great Britain. And, better still, to spend time with Dad, who seemed a little absent. He had it by the way. always been,” he wrote.

Dad was not cut out for this role”, he confides. But he admits that the king, Charles III, “did his best.

Will Prince Harry be present at his father’s coronation?
Next May, Charles III will be crowned. Since the revelations of his son, Prince Harry, in his Harry & Meghan series and in his memoirs, it seems that Prince William’s brother is not really welcome at this ceremony. Indeed, the Crown would be very concerned about the disclosure of private conversations. A source told The Sun: “There have been discussions within the family, including Edward and Anne. They do not want private conversations at the Coronation to be incorporated into the paperback edition of Spare.”
