Prince Harry claims William and Kate Middleton told him to wear Nazi costume

Prince Harry sensationally blames his Nazi uniform scandal on his brother, Prince William, and his sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, in his new memoir, sources tell Page Six.

The Duke of Sussex will claim the Prince and Princess of Wales “screamed with laughter” when they saw him dressed for the 2005 party.

Harry was 20 when The Sun newspaper published a front-page picture of him dressed as a Nazi soldier with a red armband emblazoned with a large swastika.

The photo was taken at a Native and Colonial themed costume party where William was also invited and was dressed in a homemade lion outfit.

In a segment of the book, obtained by Page Six, Harry writes about the outfit choice, revealing it was a toss-up between two costumes: a pilot’s uniform or a Nazi uniform.

“I called Willy and Kate, asked them what they thought. Nazi uniform, they said,” Harry writes, adding that when he went home and tried it on for them. “They were both screaming. Worse than Willy’s leotard outfit! Much funnier! Which, again, was the point.”

Harry, now 38, is expected to go into detail for the first time about his fallout with his older brother following the storm that followed. Other book sources confirm that there is also a “good part” about both Kate and his stepmother, Queen Consort Camilla Parker-Bowles.

Prince Harry was 20 when he was swept up in the storm of Nazi costumes on the cover of The Sun newspaper.

Although the Duke of Sussex has called the Nazi incident “one of the biggest mistakes of my life”, a senior publishing source who has read Harry’s “Spare” told us: “It’s strange as you would think that Harry would take ownership of this and just move on and not drag his brother into it, but he makes it clear that he feels strongly about William’s role in the scandal.”

Royal historian Robert Lacey previously wrote that the first sign of trouble between the brothers came when Harry was forced to bear the brunt of public outrage over his Nazi costume – even though William helped choose the outfit.

“Harry chose his suit in reference to his older brother – the future King William V, then 22, who had laughed all the way to Highgrove (Charles’ country home) with his younger sibling that he was supposed to mentor – and then. party together,” Lacey wrote in his 2020 book, Battle of Brothers.

He spoke of how Harry began to feel estranged from his family after the incident, as the book said: “The young prince began to reassess his older brother’s involvement and the injustice of William’s subsequent rose-smelling performance. “

“This made Harry feel unhappy and even alienated,” Lacey wrote, claiming that William was the one who would “draw” Harry into his “misguided and self-destructive ways.”

“For the first time, their relationship really suffered and they barely spoke,” Lacey told a former aide. “Harry resented the fact that William got off so easily.”

The clash caused “no talking” between the pair in the following years, as Harry constantly resented being painted as the “fall comic guy” to his brother’s “glittering hero”, the book claimed.

Therefore, it was not Harry’s wife who was the driving force behind the problems with Harry and his family, Lacey wrote.

“He already had very strong reasons to be shot [get rid] of the rest of us and our laughing assumptions about the inferior – and actually quite humiliating – role he must be grateful to play. Truly a ‘backup’ in more ways than one.”

In another bombshell excerpt from his upcoming biography, Harry revealed how his brother hit him as they fell out over Markle.

The Guardian published an excerpt on Wednesday in which Harry claimed the young Prince of Wales grabbed him by the collar and threw him to the floor during a fight, which left him with visible injuries.

The fight allegedly broke out at his London home in 2019 after William called Markle “difficult”, “rude” and “abrasive”.
