Prince Harry shows Stephen Colbert the necklace William broke
King Charles is likely to be furious over “derogatory” nicknames Prince Harry has given private secretaries in his memoir, a royal biographer claims.
The Duke of Sussex refers to three “courtiers” as The Bee, The Fly and The Wasp, writing: “I’d spent my life dealing with courtiers, scores of them. But now I dealt mostly with just three, all middle-aged white men who’d managed to consolidate power through a series of bold Machiavellian manoeuvres.”
Robert Jobson said that anyone with a “semblance” of knowledge about the workings of the royal household would know who the “deeply insulting” comments are about.
Harry has denied boasting about killing 25 people in Afghanistan, describing this as “very dangerous” spin.
The Duke told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show in the US that watching the reactions has been “hurtful and challenging”.
“Without a doubt, the most dangerous lie that they have told is that I somehow boasted about the number of people that I killed in Afghanistan,” Harry said.
Spare has become the fastest-selling non-fiction book ever, recording figures of 400,000 copies so far across hardback, ebook and audio formats on its first day of publication.

King Charles carried ‘pitiful teddy bear’ with him everywhere, Prince Harry says
King Charles apparently carried a teddy bear around with him everywhere, according to Prince Harry writing in his new book, Spare.
Remembering seeing his father with the teddy while he was growing up, Harry said the bear was “pitiful” with “broken arms and dangly threads”.
It’s believed the bear was from Charles’ days at boarding school Gordonstoun in Scotland, where he was badly bullied, but it’s unknown if he still takes the toy around with him.

TK Maxx denies Prince Harry’s claim about shopping retailer’s annual sales
TK Maxx denied Prince Harry’s claim about shopping at the retailer during its yearly sales, which he mentioned in his new memoir, Spare.
In his book, which was released on 10 January, the Duke of Sussex reflected on buying from TK Maxx during their “once-a-year sale”. However, TK Maxx has now responded to the royal’s claim, noting that its stores don’t “do sales”.
“Whilst we’re delighted Prince Harry is a big fan, we thought we should explain we don’t actually do sales,” a spokesperson for the brand told Express. “Instead, we offer great value, style, and savings all year round.”
The response from TK Maxx – which is known as TJ Maxx in the US – comes after Harry made claims about how much he loves buying his daily attire from the department store.

Opinion: Tragedy of King and his warring sons is Shakespearean
You have to wonder whether Charles has had some intimation of the Lear-like quality of what has engulfed him and his still-young reign, writes Sean O’Grady.
Like King Lear, based on an elderly mythical king of Britain, and his three daughters Goneril, Regan and the pure Cordelia, Charles sought from his offspring their love, loyalty and respect.
