A royal biographer feels “baffled” by the allegations made in Prince Harry’s memoir.
Jonathan Dimbleby is baffled by the 38-year-old prince’s memoir, Spare, and observes that it contains revelations we might see from “B-list celebrities.”
He said: “I am perplexed. I am at a loss. He is clearly a very troubled man.
“I’m afraid everyone just happens to be using the word revelation. Yes, how he lost his virginity, how he took drugs, and how many people he shot down from the Apaches.” There are definitely revelations about how it feels, but they’re kind of partly the revelations you’d expect from a B-list celebrity.”
Jonathan, 78, also believes King Charles will be “extremely distressed” by the allegations made in the memoir.
He told BBC Radio 4’s ‘Today’ programme, “I can only assume that he is very distressed, very frustrated and very desperate to end it.”
In his memoirs, Harry claims to have killed 25 people while on duty in Afghanistan.
The prince, who has visited Britain twice, said he killed 25 Taliban fighters while serving in the British army.
He wrote: “It seemed imperative not to fear the number [of people killed]So my number is 25.
“It’s not a satisfying number, but it’s not embarrassing.”
Harry likened the Taliban fighters to “a chess piece removed from the board.”
Nonetheless, the Prince really enjoyed his time in the British Army, as he was able to escape the drama of royal life.
“I was no longer Prince Harry, but a Second Lieutenant Welsh in the Bruce and Royals, the second oldest regiment in the British Army,” he said.
