Prince Harry claims that Kate Middleton and William ordered him to dress in a Nazi costume
In his new biography, Prince Harry sensationally assigns Kate Middleton and Prince William some of the blame for the Nazi uniform incident. The Prince and Princess of Wales reportedly “howled with amusement” when they saw the Duke of Sussex dressing up for the 2005 celebration, according to the Duke of Sussex. When Harry, then 20 years old, was featured on the top page of a newspaper in a photo sporting a red armband bearing a large swastika, he was dressed like a Nazi soldier.
William was a visitor and was wearing a homemade lion costume when the photo was taken at a costume party with a “Native and Colonial” theme. When asked which costume he would have preferred, Harry writes that it was a toss-up between a pilot’s uniform and a Nazi uniform.
“I phoned Willy and Kate, asked what they thought. Nazi uniform, they said,” Harry writes, adding that when he went home and tried it on for them, They both howled. Worse than Willy’s leotard outfit! Way more ridiculous! Which, again, was the point.”
Harry, who is now 38, is anticipated to discuss his fallout with his older brother as a result of the ensuing storm for first time. There is also a “large portion” regarding Kate and his stepmother, Queen Consort Camilla Parker-Bowles, according to additional book sources. The first evidence of conflict between the brothers, according to Royal Historian Robert Lacey, was when Harry had to take the brunt of criticism for his Nazi costume, despite the fact that William helped pick it out.
“Harry chose his costume in conjunction with his elder brother, the future King William V, then 22 years old, who had laughed all the way back to Highgrove (Charles’ country home) with the younger sibling he was supposed to be mentoring, and then onwards to the party together,” Lacey wrote in his 2020 book “Battle of Brothers.”
