Another absolutely shocking allegation from Prince Harry's upcoming memoir, Spare, has been leaked—this time by Page Six. According to sources who spoke to the outlet, Harry claims he was told to wear his 2005 Nazi uniform by none other than Kate Middleton and Prince William, who "howled with laughter" when they saw him in the outfit.
Page Six obtained Harry's recollections on the subject, where he says he called William and Kate and asked them to weigh in on his costume (apparently a pilot uniform was also on the table).
“I phoned Willy and Kate, asked what they thought. Nazi uniform, they said,” Harry writes, saying he tried the costume on with them. “They both howled. Worse than Willy’s leotard outfit! Way more ridiculous! Which, again, was the point.”
FYI, this recollection pretty much matches author Robert Lacey's reporting in his 2020 book Battle of Brothers, where he wrote, “Harry chose his costume in conjunction with his elder brother—the future King William V, then 22, who had laughed all the way back to Highgrove (Charles’ country home) with the younger sibling he was supposed to be mentoring—and then onwards to the party together."
Lacey also spoke to a former aide who claimed Harry was upset about taking the fall, saying, “For the first time, their relationship really suffered and they barely spoke. Harry resented the fact that William got away so lightly.”
Speaking of sources, Page Six also chatted to a publishing insider who noted, “It’s strange as you would think that Harry would take ownership of this and just move on and not drag his brother into it, but he makes it clear that he feels strongly about William’s role in the scandal.”
Considering Harry calls William his "arch-nemesis" in the book, maybe it's not that strange after all!
