MONTECITO, CALIFORNIA: The estranged prince of the British royal family is not seemingly stopping anytime soon as he’s shared some more shocking things about the firm. Prince Harry in his upcoming memoir, ‘Spare’, has reportedly said that it was his elder brother, Prince William and sister-in-law Kate Middleton, who were actually responsible for his 2005 Nazi costume scandal.

One of the many scandals surrounding the royal family, the 2005 one was pretty significant for the Duke of Sussex after he attended a “Native and Colonial” theme party hosted by Olympic show jumper Richard Meade. Harry went there in a Nazi soldier uniform, which landed him on the front page of The Sun at the time. He faced severe criticism, resulting in his apology for the action.

Harry's big time revelation of the 2005 controversy

At the time, the then 20-year-old had reportedly said, “It was one of the biggest mistakes of my life. I felt so ashamed afterward. All I wanted to do was make it right. I sat down and spoke to the Chief Rabbi in London, which had a profound impact on me.” Harry had also added, “I went to Berlin and spoke to a holocaust survivor. I could have got on and ignored it and made the same mistakes over and over in my life, but I learnt from that.”

Years after, the father-of-two has again spilled beans about the incident. Page Six cited a section from ‘Spare’ and stated that Harry was confused between two outfits — a pilot dress and a Nazi uniform. Therefore, he apparently took help from the future king and his wife. He reportedly shared, “I phoned Willy and Kate, asked what they thought. Nazi uniform, they said. They both howled. Worse than Willy’s leotard outfit! Way more ridiculous! Which, again, was the point.”

It has also been said that Harry would disclose more about his family in his new book. Meanwhile, a senior publishing source has seemingly agreed with Harry’s fresh blame over the years-old controversy. They reportedly 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.”

Meghan is not the reason behind the feud

This comes as earlier, Royal Historian Robert Lacey had asserted that it was not Meghan Markle who created distance between the brothers but it started to happen after the 2005 episode. In the book, ‘Battle of Brothers’, released two years ago, the author said, “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 pointed out that “The young prince began re-evaluating his elder brother’s involvement and the unfairness of William’s subsequent emergence smelling of roses. It made Harry feel resentful and even alienated. For the first time, their relationship really suffered and they barely spoke,” before stating, “Harry resented the fact that William got away so lightly.”

The writer had also reportedly added, “Meghan [Markle] was not the original factor in Prince Harry’s decision to get shot of his family in January 2020. He already had very solid reasons to get shot [get rid] of the rest of us and our smiling assumptions of the inferior — and actually rather demeaning — role that he should be grateful to play. Truly a ‘spare’ in more than one sense.”
