Prince Harry claimed that his older brother William and Kate encouraged him to dress up as a Nazi soldier, calling the decision "one of the biggest mistakes in my life", in the book.

When the couple saw Prince Harry in the dress, they “howled with laughter”, Harry claimed saying that he was confused between wearing a pilot uniform and Nazi outfit to the Native and Colonial-themed soiree in London.

"I phoned Willy and Kate, and asked what they thought. Nazi uniform, they said. They both howled. Worse than Willy's leotard outfit! Way more ridiculous! Which, again, was the point," the memoir reads, as per Page Six.
