For those fed on the gossip of the British royal family, boy are you sure to eat well today! Excerpts from a Spanish version of Prince Harry’s upcoming book spare part leaked, so now we have enough drama to keep us entertained in this temperate winter. While more notable stories like Prince William attack Harry made the covers of gossip pages (ours included), I don’t want anyone to overlook the edit of the “wicked stepmother” that Harry gave to the queen consort, Camilla Parker Bowles.
Harry writes of speaking to his father, now King Charles, “The only thing we asked for in return was that he not marry her. ‘You don’t have to get married again,'” Harry reported wrote in his book. He also claimed that he and William “begged” Charles not to marry Parker Bowles; They feared she would become an “evil stepmother.”
Charles and Parker Bowles have long been romantically involved, before and notoriously during Charles’ marriage to Princess Diana. In that sense alone, I don’t blame Harry or William for not enthusiastically welcoming her into their family after her mother’s death.
“Willy had long been suspicious of the Other Woman, which confused and distressed him,” writes Harry. “When this suspicion was confirmed, he felt an agonizing remorse for not doing or saying anything before.”
fFor years Charles and Parker Bowles remained partners but unmarried. They only married in April 2005 when Harry was 20 years old.
Following Diana’s death, Camilla was pretty strongly unpopular by the public. It took her a lot of time and effort to get rid of the “other woman” image; She eventually ended up in a neutral stance at best. But now Prince Harry comes along with that grand ole bombshell book, including his apparent dislike for his stepmother. Whether that is ultimately justified or not, Harry dragging the woman with him doesn’t help Milquetoast image she worked so hard for.
What else did the wicked stepmother do to her poor prince of a stepson? Let’s just take a look at Harry’s old room. Oh wait, we can’t! It’s now a closet full of dresses and fascinators! Parker Bowles apparently turned it into her wardrobe. page six ensured Clues that Parker Bowles, while not as stylish as Meghan or Kate, “certainly has a closet big enough to deserve extra storage.”
“I tried not to care. But especially when I saw it for the first time, I was worried,” she writes Harry. Aside from throwing people to the ground, that’s about as annoying as Brits seem to get. “I cared.” They are fighting words!
I have two opinions on this closet situation. Clarence House has five bedrooms, as well as other multi-purpose rooms. It does feel a little unnecessary turning Harry’s old room into a dressing room when there are certainly more options. On the other hand, Harry was 28 when he moved out. Let your weird father’s wife have your room, dude. Grow up.
To be clear, I don’t feel bad for Parker Bowles for this renaming that Harry rushed in and gave her. I think if she had one special wish In order to maintain a good reputation in public, she could have put in a little more effort. In fact, I long to learn more about the mystery woman Charles desired he was a tampon for. In that case, thank you harry, for revamping their boring impostor Picture: She might have turned your room into her closet but you drew a heap old skeletons from Clarence House’s own closets.
