Prince Harry called Camilla a “bad guy” during his press tour for Spare. The queen consort was portrayed as an evil stepmother by the prince in his memoirs.
“She was the bad guy. She was the third person in their marriage,” Harry said in an interview with 60 Minutes. “She had to rehabilitate her image.”
“You and your brother asked your father directly not to marry Camilla?” asked Anderson Cooper.
“Yes,” Prince Harry replied. Cooper went on to ask the king why.
“We didn’t think it was necessary. We thought it would do more harm than good and that just being with him now would certainly be enough,” he said. “Why go so far if you don’t have to? We wanted him to be happy. And we saw how happy he was with her. So it was ‘ok’ at the time.”

Harry also criticized Camilla’s relationship with the press.
“It made her dangerous because of the connections she made within the British press. And there was an open willingness on both sides to share information,” Harry said. “And with a family built on hierarchy, and with her on her way to the queen consort, people or corpses would be left in the streets because of it.
“If you think being on the front page as a family member, having positive headlines and writing positive stories about you will improve your reputation or increase the chances of you being accepted as a monarch by the British public, then you will do that,” Harry wrote in Spare.
Spare is Harry’s very personal and intimate account of his life in the royal family and his relationship with American actress Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex.
