There's no denying Prince Harry has a strained relationship with the royal family, something which has been a talking point over the past few years.
Following his wife Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021, and then the release of their Netflix docuseries, Harry & Meghan, royal watchers have been given their side of the story which shows how deep-rooted the tensions are between the families.
However, back in January 2023, the world got an even closer insight into the friction when Harry released his explosive memoir, Spare. One of the biggest revelations was how critical Prince Harry is of his stepmother, Queen Camilla.
During one of his televised interviews on CBS with Anderson Cooper, the Duke explained: "She was the third person in their marriage. She needed to rehabilitate her image."
In the book, it was detailed how Harry and his brother Prince William had asked their father, King Charles, not to marry the now-Queen Consort. "We didn't think it was necessary. We thought it would do more harm than good," he revealed on CBS. "Why go that far when you don't necessarily need to? We wanted him to be happy. And we saw how happy he was with her. So, at the time, it was, 'OK.'"
The American journalist then probed: "You wrote that she started a campaign in the British press to pave the way for a marriage. And you wrote, 'I even wanted Camilla to be happy. Maybe she'd be less dangerous if she was happy.' How was she dangerous?" To which, Harry replied: "Because of the need for her to rehabilitate her image. That made her dangerous because of the connections that she was forging within the British press. And there was open willingness on both sides to trade information.
"And with a family built on hierarchy, and with her on the way to being queen consort, there was going to be people or bodies left in the street because of that." In the memoir, the Duke also wrote that Camilla "sacrificed me on her personal PR altar".
Here we take a look back at some of the moments Prince Harry has shared with his stepmother, Queen Camilla. In 2005, both Prince Harry and Prince William were among the party who attended Charles' wedding to Camilla in April 2005 – the private civil ceremony took place at Windsor's Guildhall.
Photos from the day show the royal brothers happily posing with the then-newlyweds and Camilla's two children from her previous marriage, Tom Parker Bowles and Laura Lopes.
Following their nuptials, during an interview for his 21st birthday in September of that year, Harry expressed his gratitude and claimed that both he and William "love her to bits".
"She's a wonderful woman and she's made our father very, very happy, which is the most important thing," he said, adding: "Look at the position she's come into. Don't always feel sorry for me and William, feel sorry for her. We are grateful for her… we're very happy to have her around."
He then joked: "To be honest, she's always been very close to me and William. But no, she's not the wicked stepmother, I'll say that right now."
Over the years that followed, Prince Harry and Queen Consort Camilla were pictured together at various events including Trooping the Colour, family gatherings, Royal Ascot and the Jubilee celebrations for the late Queen.
Just days after Harry and Meghan's royal wedding in May 2018, the newlyweds joined then Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall to celebrate Charles' 70th birthday on the grounds of Buckingham Palace. The two couples happily spoke to each other, showing their close bond to the world.
The birthday party marked the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's first joint engagement as a married couple, and the Duchess' first as a member of the royal family.
Harry even gave a speech in tribute to his father, saying: "In my mind, this event sums up your approach to work. I know you really didn't want today to be about you, and would far rather the focus be on the people and all the organisations represented here. I know that in your mind you see the opportunity of bringing everyone together as a chance to thank them for all the amazing work.
"It is your selfless drive to affect change - whether that is to improve the lives of those who are on the wrong path, to save an important piece of our natural heritage, or to protect a particular species under threat – with which William and I draw inspiration from every day."
