Prince Harry claims William and Kate Middleton told him to wear a Nazi uniform

Prince Harry dramatically assigns some of the blame to him Nazi costume scandal On his brother, Prince William, and his sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, at his home New notes Sources tell Page Six.

The Duke of Sussex will claim that the Prince and Princess of Wales “screamed with laughter” when they saw him dressed for the 2005 party.

Harry was 20 years old when The Sun newspaper published a picture of him on its front page Dressed as a Nazi soldier Red badge decorated with a large swastika.

The photo was taken at a costume party with a “Natives and Colonials” theme, where William was also a guest and was dressed in a homemade lion costume.

In one part of the book, obtained by Page Six, Harry writes about the choice of costume, explaining that it was a confusion between two uniforms: a pilot’s uniform or a Nazi’s uniform.

“I called Billy and Kate and asked what they thought. They said it was a Nazi outfit,” Harry wrote, adding that when he came home and tried it on for them. “They both howled. Worse than Willy’s costume! Way more ridiculous! Which, again, was the goal.”

Harry, 38, is expected to go into detail for the first time about his fallout with his older brother in the ensuing stormy aftermath. Other book sources assert that there is also “a great deal of information” about both Kate and his stepmother, Queen Consort Camilla Parker Bowles.

Prince Harry was just 20 when he caught himself in the Nazi fashion storm on the cover of The Sun.

Although the Duke of Sussex called the Nazi incident “one of the biggest mistakes of my life,” a senior publishing source who has read Harry’s book Spear told us, “It’s weird because you think Harry’s going to take ownership of this and just going forward and not dragging his brother into it, but making it clear that he feels strongly about William’s part in the scandal.”

Royal historian Robert Lacey had written this earlier The first sign of trouble between brothers It came when Harry was forced to bear the brunt of the public outcry over his Nazi costume – even though William helped choose the outfit.

Harry chose his costume jointly with his older brother – the future King William V, then 22, who had laughed all the way back to Highgrove (Charles’ country house) with his younger brother who was supposed to guide him – and then off to the party together. Lacy wrote in his 2020 book The Battle of the Brothers.

Speaking of how Harry began to feel estranged from his family after the incident, the book said, “The young prince began to re-evaluate his older brother’s involvement and the injustice of William’s subsequent Scent of Roses appearance.”

“He made Harry feel resentful and even alienated,” Lacey wrote, claiming that William was the one to “convince” Harry of his “wayward and self-destructive ways”.

“For the first time, their relationship really suffered and they barely spoke,” a former aide told Lacey. “Harry resented the fact that William got away with it so lightly.”

The fallout sparked “no talking” between the pair in the years that followed, with Harry repeatedly resenting his portrayal of a “comic fall guy” to his brother’s “brilliant hero”, the writers claim.

So Harry’s wife wasn’t the trigger for the issues with Harry and his family, Lacey writes.

“He really had very strong reasons for firing him [get rid] of the rest of us and our smirking assumptions of the inferior—even somewhat humiliating—role he should be grateful to have played. Truly a ‘reserve’ in more than one sense.”

In another bombshell excerpt from his upcoming bio, Harry revealed how his brother They beat him when they came to beat Markle.

The Guardian published an excerpt on Wednesday in which Harry claims the new Prince of Wales grabbed him by the collar and threw him to the ground during a fight, leaving him with visible injuries.

The fight allegedly broke out at his London home in 2019, after William called Markle “difficult”, “rude” and “abrasive”.
