Prince Harry says UK royal family's tabloids slept with 'the devil'

LONDON, January 8 (Reuters) – Prince Harry said he made public his disagreement with the British royal family and challenged the press to help the monarchy and change the media. suicide mission”.

in the first one television interview series Published Sunday before his memoir was published, Harry accused members of his family of getting into bed with the devil—the tabloid press—to persuade him and his wife, Meghan, to raise their own reputations.

He told Britain’s ITV that he fled England with his family to California in 2020 “fearing for our lives” and said he no longer knew his father or his elder brother, Prince William, who is heir to the throne.

“After so many years of lies being told about me and my family, it gets to the point that if we go back to the relationship between some members of the family and the tabloid press, some of these people have decided to go to bed with the devil … to improve their image,” he said.

“The moment this rehabilitation is to the detriment of others, myself, and other members of my family, that’s when I draw the line.”

Thursday, Harry’s book “Substitute” accidentally went on sale in Spain five days before its official release, chronicization Not just huge personal details, such as how he lost his virginity and used illegal drugs, but also more intimate private instances of family mismatch.

The book says that his older brother knocked him out in a fight and both brothers begged their father not to marry his second wife, Camilla, now the Queen Consort.

Commentators say the book put the monarchy in its biggest crisis since the soap opera days, which revolved around the end of Charles’ marriage to his late first wife, William and Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, in the 1990s.

Everything comes after only four months Queen Elizabeth died and Charles ascended the throne.

In the ITV interview, Harry reiterated and detailed the accusations he and Meghan have made since leaving their royal duties; that royals and their aides not only failed to protect them from a hostile and sometimes racist press, but also actively leaked stories about them through anonymous sources.


“The saddest part of this is that some of my family members and the people who work for them are complicit in this conflict,” he said, noting that Charles and Camilla were also involved.

No statement has been made so far from Buckingham Palace. Harry said he didn’t think his father or brother would read his book.

An unnamed friend of William’s told the Sunday Times that the Prince of Wales was “on fire” with anger but would not respond “for the sake of his family and country”.

Harry told ITV that he wanted to reconcile with his family members but showed no interest, giving the impression that it was better to keep him and Meghan as the bad guys.

“I truly believe and hope that the reconciliation between me and my family will have a ripple effect all over the world. Maybe this is sublime, maybe this is purity,” he said.

Harry also said he hopes the multiple legal actions he has taken against newspapers will help change the media, adding that it is “at the epicenter of many problems in the UK”.

“My father told me that trying to change the press was probably a suicide mission,” she said.

Polls show that many Britons are starting to get bored with all the royal melodrama, and further disclosure is unlikely to shake their views, whether they sympathize with Harry and Meghan or those they criticize.

“I love my father. I love my brother. I love my family. I will always love them. Nothing I did in this book, one way or another… was to hurt or hurt them,” she said. .
