She is relentless in her bitterness at being pigeon-holed as a ‘spare’ for William’s successor – the title of her ghost-written memoir.
He casts his brother as his ‘arch nemesis’, Queen Consort Camilla as an ‘evil stepmother’ and Charles as an emotionally weak and ineffective ‘old man’.
In other surprising revelations, Harry, 38:
Spare was due to be published on Tuesday amid a massive privacy campaign by its publisher, Penguin Random House. But a very embarrassing mistake happened yesterday when copies were put up for sale in bookshops across Spain despite the boxes saying ‘not to be opened until 10 January’.
Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace declined to comment and were frantically digesting the contents of Harry’s more than 570-page diatribe last night.
While some sympathized with the prince’s apparent ongoing emotional distress over the tragic loss of his adored mother, many would consider it a monstrous – and possibly unforgivable – betrayal of his family four months after the death of the late queen.
A source who knew Elizabeth well said last night that she felt ‘almost relieved’ that she did not live to see what her grandson had done.
‘Your Majesty would have been devastated,’ he said. Harry’s highly anticipated memoir is even more explosive than Buckingham Palace insiders feared.

The prince also claims he was innocent of allegations of racism when he was caught on video using the word ‘p***’ to describe a fellow Asian Sandhurst cadet, saying he was not knew it was a slur and thought it was like calling an American a ‘Yankee’.
But it is his discussion of relationships with family members that is most damaging. The book covers every aspect of his life, charting the disconnect with his older sibling – whom he calls ‘Willie’ – that began from the moment of his birth, when Charles allegedly declared that his duty was fulfilled.
She accused William, 40, of being preoccupied with his position as the future heir to the throne, claiming he neglected her when they were students at Eton College and that he repeatedly put her in her place .
In one paragraph Harry, affectionately called ‘Harold’ by his family, describes himself as feeling as though he was born to be a ‘spare kidney’ for his older brother.
Harry also accused his older brother of being aggressive during the ‘Megxit’, claiming their relationship had become so strained and damaged that William would only ‘yell’ at him.
He describes several particularly awkward encounters between himself, Meghan, William and Kate, adding that his brother and sister-in-law appeared uncomfortable at being hugged by his future wife.

Kate was apparently upset that Meghan blamed ‘baby brain’ for Prince Louis’ forgetfulness following the birth.
Harry also revealed that the two couples were also rowing over the seating plan and whether William and Kate should be placed together.
He says that when William confronted Meghan and defended his wife, Meghan told the prince to ‘get your finger out of my face’. While Charles has suffered more than many expected, Harry portrayed him as an ineffective father who wasn’t even able to hug his mother when she told him of her death in a car crash.
He says that when he told Charles about suffering from panic attacks as a grown man, the prince looked sadly at his plate and said he had failed him.
However, in passages that will surely be troubling for the king, Harry describes how when he returned to the UK in 2021 to attend Prince Philip’s funeral, a clearly distressed Charles told his warring sons to asked not to make ‘the final years a misery’. ,
Harry claims he and William had an explosive argument about Meghan, which resulted in his brother grabbing her by the collar, breaking her necklace and pinning her to the ground, smashing himself on the dog bowl and got injured He later called his doctor first, not his wife, he says.
And William, he claims, is his ‘arch-nemesis’ and ‘polar opposite’.
As for the Queen consort, who comes off relatively lightly in the book, Harry says he and William begged their father not to marry ‘the other woman’, for fear she would be their ‘wicked stepmother’ But says they eventually came to tolerate it.
Fifth in line to the throne, however, accuses Camilla of leaking stories about him through the palace’s spin doctor.
The loss of his mother, Princess Diana, is also a central theme of the memoir, to which Harry returns repeatedly.
He dedicates the book to her along with Meghan and their two children.
He repeatedly dreams that his mother might return, and is once turned to a woman with ‘powers’ who gives him a message from Diana saying she is ‘living a life she shouldn’t’ Sakti’.
Rajkumar also writes in the book about drinking his first cocktail with the Queen Mother and teaching her to do an impression of TV character Ali Ji.
