The ‘self-proclaimed feminist’ Prince Harry is today accused of ‘vast’ and ‘breathtaking’ hypocrisy for attacking the character of his stepmother, Queen Consort Camilla.
In an interview to plug his Spare’s autobiography, which contains a slew of allegations against members of the royal family, including his father Charles and estranged brother William, the Duke of Sussex sensationally labeled the King’s second wife as the ‘bad guy’ and ‘dangerous’, and accused her of restoring her past image. at his expense.
He later appeared to brush back the comments by saying he felt “tremendous pity” for Camilla. However, rOfficial sources indicate that Charles believes that the Prince’s attacks on the Queen Consort have crossed a ‘red line’.
Speaking to ITV’s Good Morning Britain today, Camilla’s friend and journalist Petronella Wyatt denounced Harry’s vehement criticism and accused the Duke – whom she called a ‘self-proclaimed feminist’ – of hypocrisy by taking ‘a very nasty potshot at a 75-year-old. woman who can’t answer back’.
Although she claimed that Charles would be ‘devastated’ by Harry’s accusations, Mrs Wyatt said the King will ‘forgive everything to his son’ as he feels responsible ‘for the way he has become’.
‘Self-declared feminist’ Prince Harry is today accused of ‘massive hypocrisy’ for making extraordinary and ‘annoying’ attacks on the character of his stepmother, Queen Consort Camilla, in his bombshell memoir

“I think Harry is a huge hypocrite for being a self-proclaimed feminist and yet he takes this very mean potshot on a 75-year-old woman who can’t answer. So where’s his feminism?’ said Mrs. Wyatt.
“If someone accused Meghan of plotting to get married in front of the royal family… it makes Harry cry, why is he doing the same to Camilla? And why does he take absolutely no responsibility for his own mistakes that have not been leaked to the press by Camilla?’.
She continued, “There was one example of a leak by one of her assistants that was accidental, and the assistant was immediately fired. But she never told her… she never would, she’s a very nice person, she’s very sensitive about the two princes, and she has no ambition at all.’
Ms Wyatt described Harry’s interviews as ‘very inflammatory’ and said of the King: ‘He adores Camilla and will be devastated by this.
“Even more than Camilla, because Camilla will rise above everything, and keep smiling, keep on doing her job. She never indulges in self-pity. But Charles adores her and he will be deeply hurt. Although they have said it is a red line, I believe Charles will forgive Harry anything.
“It was said by royal sources that the red line he must not cross was Camilla, he must not attack Camilla.
“But I do believe that Charles, being a very decent man, will forgive his son anything and has a slightly guilty complex about the way he’s turned out and behaved and maybe blames himself a little.”
Ms Wyatt told GMB: ‘I’ve come to really like Camilla because she’s a very humble, no-nonsense, down-to-earth person… the absolute opposite of a schemer. She wouldn’t know how to make plans, she couldn’t even spell it on a scrabble board. She is truly one of the nicest people I have ever met.
“I have had no contact with the palace and other journalists I know have had no contact with the palace.
“The Palace hasn’t said a word, and it’s just another example of Harry’s breathtaking hypocrisy and sanctimonious deviation from reality.”
While she claimed Charles will be ‘devastated’ by Harry’s accusations, Ms Wyatt said the King will ‘forgive everything to his son’ as he feels responsible ‘for the way he has become’

As the duke continued a series of high-profile promotional interviews, he said he “would love nothing more” than for his children to have relationships with the royal family.
His comments about his son and daughter came despite the criticism he leveled at his brother William, father Charles and stepmother Camilla.
In his first print interview about his autobiography, he told People magazine that Archie, three, and Lili, 19 months old, bonded with some of the Windsors, whom he did not name, saying it brought him “great joy.” .
He also described his late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, as his ‘guardian angel’ and said she is with him ‘all the time’.
Bookstores across the UK opened early on Tuesday to offer Harry’s book – but queues were sparse after pre-publication leaks, with industry experts predicting Spare would be one of the best-selling pre-order titles of the past decade.
It retails for £14, not the £28 RRP, in places like Waterstones and WH Smith, as well as online at Amazon.
Only one person was waiting outside Waterstones’ flagship branch in Piccadilly, central London, when it opened at 8am.
Caroline Lennon, 59, who had walked two miles from Bethnal Green in the East End to arrive at 6am, said: ‘People will criticize me and say, ‘What an idiot I like Harry. What an idiot to stand in line,’ but I don’t care what anyone says.’
Other royal fans lined up for the midnight store openings, with a handful waiting outside WH Smith at Victoria Station in London to be among the first to buy a copy.
In his interview with People magazine, which featured a flattering photoshoot, Harry said of his book, written by JR Moehringer, “I don’t want to tell anyone what to think, and that includes my family. This book and its truths are in many ways a continuation of my own mental health journey.
“It’s a raw record of my life — the good, the bad, and everything in between.”

The duke added that he hoped for a reconciliation, saying: “I would like nothing more than for our children to have relations with members of my family, and they do with some of them, which gives me great joy.”
It is known that Harry is close to his cousin Princess Eugenie, who visited him in the US.
Archie and Lili are the King’s grandchildren, but live thousands of miles from the Windsors in California, and the Duke has confessed that he hasn’t spoken to Charles in “a while” and is not in text contact with William at the moment.
Harry is also a guest on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert in the US on Tuesday night.
Images from the more light-hearted interview seemed to show Harry being shown shots of tequila, and while watching the program, Colbert joked about Harry and William’s rivalry and compared his life to Harry Potter.
“That’s heartbreaking. To be rejected at school by his older brother, even though that magic hat put them in the same house. What do you think? Hufflepuff? Gryffindor?” Colbert said.
“Stock up on corgis and steal a priceless cultural treasure from one of your colonies, as The Late Show goes imperial.”
Harry has drawn criticism for his revelation in Spare that he killed 25 Taliban members during the war in Afghanistan.
He has also candidly admitted to taking drugs all his life, losing his virginity to an older woman in a field as a teenager, and getting frostbite on his penis.
The Duke revealed how the Duchess of Sussex was questioned by the Queen about her opinion of Donald Trump when the two women first met, but “Meg thought politics was a no-profit game so she changed the subject to Canada.”
He spoke of how the former Suits star failed to recognize the Duke of York, who was holding the Queen’s handbag when he joined them, and thought he was the monarch’s aide.
Harry also shared how a ‘much too upset’ William called him to say ‘Dad and Camilla’s people had planted a story or stories about him and Kate and the kids’.
And the Duke caused shockwaves in an interview with ITV’s Tom Bradby when he denied calling the royal family racist in his interview with Oprah Winfrey.
He blamed the British press, despite Meghan claiming an unnamed royal had expressed “concern” about how dark their unborn son’s skin might be.
In the 407-page book, Harry expresses his frustration at being the “heir’s reserve”, his anger at the British media, his unresolved trauma over his mother’s death, his mental health problems, his lonely life before he met Meghan, and the breakup of his family relationships.
