Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, who will become Queen Consort when Prince Charles becomes King, officially entered the royal family by marrying the Prince of Wales eight years after Princess Diana’s death. Royal expert and author Ingrid Seward claimed that the Duchess doesn’t get along well with her stepson, Prince Harry, who lives in the US with his wife, Meghan Markle.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror’s podcast Pod Save the Queen, the royal biographer said of Harry: “I don’t think Harry has a great deal of warmth for her, he waxes and wanes with her.”
And added: “I think William completely appreciated Camilla and what’s she done for his father and he has got to know her well and I think he is very, very fond of her.”
The expert claimed that when Camilla became a stepmum, Harry and William were “very happy to embrace her, but then it went off the boil a bit”.
She added: “I don’t think [Harry] holds her in great respect. I don’t think Harry is interested in developing a relationship with his stepmother at this stage in his life.”
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s foundation, Archewell, was contacted for comment.
