King Charles' stern warning about Prince Harry

King Charles warned the royal family about his son Prince Harry as the monarch was 'cautious' when speaking to his younger son after the publication of his controversial memoir Spare. King Charles wanted to “limit their discussion to a harmless exchange. Concerning Harry, the message that circulated in the family was not to trust him... everyone took it very seriously.”

King Charles 'branded Harry a fool in the wake of the Netflix series'

King Charles, in the aftermath of the series airing on Netflix, thought that "at the Palace, heads were in hands and migraines were brewing." King Charles “went from not wanting anyone to talk about his son to openly criticising 'that fool'. ”

Prince Harry begged King Charles for Frogmore Cottage

The book claims that Prince Harry begged to be allowed use of Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor estate when he and Meghan Markle visit the UK. He even asked his father, "You don't want to see your grandchildren anymore?" But Prince Harry's aunt Anne was "at the forefront of the supporters of the firm approach" taken by the Palace in them vacating the property.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were 'hurt' when there was a delay in granting their children Prince and Princess titles.

But it took a full six months for this to be reflected on the official Royal family website.
