Harry, Duke of Sussex, said that his first meeting with the future Queen Camilla, which came roughly one year after his mother, Princess Diana, died, was like "getting an injection."

King Charles chooses his wife over his son.

In his memoir Spare, Harry wrote: "Willy went first. He’d bumped into the Other Woman, once, at the palace, but now he was formally summoned from Eton for a high-stakes private meeting. My turn came next. I told myself: No big deal. Just like getting an injection. Close your eyes, over before you know it."

This resurfaced insight comes amid the Duke of Sussex being on the outs with King Charles III once again thanks to what the monarch finds as his youngest son's "unforgivable" treatment of Queen Camilla.

"I think people have to realize that the one thing that Charles finds unforgivable is criticism of Camilla," The King author Christopher Andersen shared. "There’s no criticism of Camilla. And unfortunately for Harry ... Harry said some pretty devastating things about her. He made it clear that he felt she was ... the villain in the piece."

Although King Charles and Prince Harry have made a few different attempts to reconcile since the release of the California Duke's autobiography in early 2023, the monarch allegedly "keeps returning" to the passages Harry wrote about his stepmother.

Prince Harry 'wants peace' with the royal family for Princess Diana.

Previous reports revealed that Harry "can't stand" his stepmother, and this has allegedly been the case for years.

"Camilla has been working overtime to support the monarchy; just last month, she reportedly drove over six hours to a royal engagement after her flight was grounded because she reportedly didn’t want to let down her husband," royal reporter Kinsey Schofield dished in March. "I think the fact that Queen Camilla is seen as leading the family is significant proof that Prince Harry would not return to temporarily support the family because Camilla’s elevated position is likely something not sitting well with him right now."

The entertainment analyst went on to reveal: "I imagine the idea of her leading the family is something he has a hard time digesting."

Camilla Parker-Bowles and Diana, Princess of Wales.

The Hollywood Duke described her as a ruthless character willing to "sacrifice others" for the sake of good PR. "That made her dangerous because of the connections that she was forging with the British press," Harry revealed in an interview. "There was [an] open willingness on both sides to trade information. And with a family built on hierarchy and with her on the way to becoming queen consort, there was going to be people or bodies left in the street."

The fifth in line to the throne also wrote about how he and Prince William "begged" their father, the then-Prince of Wales, not to marry the woman their late mother nicknamed "the Rottweiler."
