Sparing no drama.
Prince Harry reportedly claims in his memoir, “Spare,” that King Charles III told Princess Diana that his work was “done” right after their second child’s 1984 birth.
According to The Guardian’s leaked extract of the explosive book, the Duke of Sussex writes that on the day he was born, his dad celebrated the “wonderful” news by telling Diana, “Now you’ve given me an heir and a spare — my work is done.”
The alleged quote refers to the British royal family’s line of succession, with Charles’ eldest son, Prince William, being first in line to the throne and therefore the “heir apparent.”
Meanwhile, his second-born son, Harry, has been labeled the “spare.”
Now that William has married Kate Middleton and welcomed three children — Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4 — Harry is now fifth in line to the throne.
The former military pilot’s long-awaited memoir has stirred up much drama for the royal family ahead of its Jan. 10 release, with Harry making several bombshell claims about his kin.
Harry’s anti-Semitic outfit caused serious backlash for the royal, who said in last month’s “Harry & Meghan” docuseries that it was one of the “biggest mistakes” of his life.
In addition to calling William his “beloved brother and archnemesis” in the impending book, Harry also alleges that William physically attacked him after getting into a heated argument over his wife, Meghan Markle, in 2019.
William described the “Suits” alum as “difficult,” “rude” and “abrasive” during the Nottingham Cottage incident, The Guardian reported Wednesday.
The Prince of Wales allegedly lunged at his brother “so fast” amid the argument, with Harry writing, “He grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and he knocked me to the floor.”
“I landed on the dog’s bowl, which cracked under my back, the pieces cutting into me,” he adds. “I lay there for a moment, dazed, then got to my feet and told him to get out.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped back as senior royals in 2020 and have since moved to California with son Archie, 3, and daughter Lilibet, 1. Since their exit, tensions have been high between Harry and his brother, as well as with Charles.
The leader of the Commonwealth, 74, reportedly wants to make amends with his youngest son.
“Those close to the king insist that he has always made clear how much he loves both of his sons, keeping communication channels open throughout the last few years, despite the many barbs from California,” sources recently told the Telegraph.
The insiders noted that Harry’s relationship with Charles has “occasionally been tense,” but the monarch has “reiterated that his door remains open and that the duke and [Meghan Markle] are welcome at any time.”
