Prince Harry has been compared to a ‘child in a playground’ after he claimed the Prince and Princess of Wales ‘told him to wear a Nazi uniform to a fancy dress party, a royal expert has argued.
Appearing on the the latest episode of Palace Confidential on Mail Plus, Diary Editor Richard Eden said the Duke of Sussex was ‘pathetic’ to try and shift the blame onto his brother and sister-in-law.
In his new biography Spare, which was accidentally published four days early in Spain today, the father-of-two explained how he was trying to decide between a Nazi costume or a pilot’s outfit to a ‘Native and Colonial’ themed event in 2005.
Harry says he called Prince William and his then girlfriend Kate Middleton to ask their opinion and alleges they told him to pick the controversial outfit.

‘I phoned Willy and Kate, asked what they thought. Nazi uniform, they said,’ Harry wrote, according to Page Six.
‘They both howled. Worse than Willy’s leotard outfit! Way more ridiculous! Which, again, was the point.’
The outfit became a huge scandal when Harry, then 20, was photographed wearing the Nazi regalia.
The story made global headlines after an image of Harry in the costume featured on the front page of The Sun newspaper.

Daily Mail’s Diary Editor Richard Eden says Prince Harry is ‘pathetic’ to try and shift the blame
Commenting on the Duke’s new revelation, Richard Eden said: ‘It’s pathetic, isn’t it?
‘It’s like a child in a playground saying, “it wasn’t me, it wasn’t me! They told me to do it!”
‘He was a grown man at the time, he was an adult. Surely he can decide what to wear to a party.’
Elsewhere in the episode, the expert references how Prince Harry will have to swear his allegiance to King Charles if he chooses to attend his coronation this May.
Richard continued: ‘On the one hand, [Prince Harry and Meghan Markle] love to attend the royal events.

‘It shows they’re still part of the Royal Family, it’s good for future business but the coronation will be different.
‘He will be there to swear his allegiance to the new monarch […] and that’s a big thing for him to have to do. Is he really going to do that after hurling all these brickbats at the monarchy?’
In his new book, Prince Harry also Prince Harry discusses his mother’s affair with Major James Hewitt and claims his father Charles joked, ‘Who knows if I’m even your real father?’
In Spare, the Duke of Sussex says Charles ‘liked to tell anecdotes’ and that ‘one of his best’ was a story of a visit to a psychiatric hospital where he met a man claiming to be the Prince of Wales.
According to the Duke’s recounting of the story, Charles wagged his finger at the patient and said ‘I am the Prince of Wales’ only for the man to ‘respond with the same gesture’.
According to the Duke’s retelling, Charles then joked: ‘Who knows if I’m even your real father? Perhaps your father really is in Broadmoor, my dear son!’ Harry wrote that the joke was ‘in poor taste’ given a rumour that his real father was James Hewitt.
Mr Hewitt had a five-year affair with Princess Diana when he was a young Household Cavalry officer, from 1986 to 1991.
This was confirmed by the Princess of Wales during the now-infamous Panorama interview with disgraced journalist Martin Bashir.
Harry’s resemblance to the Army officer led to claims he was a product of the affair.
In his memoirs, the prince says the rumours continued even though Diana did not meet the cavalry officer ‘ until long after I was born’. He adds that if Charles thought anything about Major Hewitt he ‘kept it to himself’.
Elsewhere in the biography, Prince Harry said ‘begged Prince Charles not to marry Camilla’ and feared she would one day be his ‘wicked stepmother’.
The Duke of Sussex alleges that he and his brother would not stand in the way of the then-Prince of Wales’s relationship but had asked him not to walk down the aisle for the second time, calling Camilla the ‘Other Woman’.
Charles had tried to ‘win over the kids’ before asking the public to accept Camilla, the book claims. Harry claims that meeting her for the first time was like an ‘injection’, writing: ‘Close your eyes and you won’t even feel it.’
The Duke said: ‘I remember wondering… if she would be cruel to me; if she would be like all the wicked stepmothers in the stories’. He added: ‘Willy had been suspicious of the Other Woman for a long time, which confused and tormented him; When those suspicions were confirmed, he felt agonizing remorse for not having done or said anything before’.
