In interviews that aired on Sunday, Harry accused members of the royal family of "getting in bed with the devil" to get favorable tabloid coverage, claimed his stepmother Camilla, the queen consort, had leaked private conversations to the media and said his family was "complicit" in the "pain and suffering" of his wife Meghan.

Harry said Camilla had to rehabilitate her image with the British public after her long affair with her father and was one of the victims of his efforts to get better tabloid coverage.

"That made her dangerous because of the connections she was forging within the British press," he told CBS.

“Both parties were willing to exchange information.

And with a family built on hierarchy, and with her on her way to being queen consort, there were going to be people or dead bodies on the street," she added.

He reiterated his claim on ITV that there was "concern" in the royal family about the color of their son's skin before he was born after he married biracial American actress Meghan Markle, saying the British monarchy should address their attitudes towards the race.

Harry and Meghan first mentioned the incident during an interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021. They have not identified the family member who raised concerns.

Harry said the episode was an example of unconscious bias rather than racism, adding that the royal family needed to "learn and grow" in order to be "part of the solution rather than part of the problem."

"Otherwise, the unconscious bias then falls under the category of racism," Harry said.

He said that "especially when you are the monarchy, you have a responsibility and, rightly, people demand more of you than others."

He also says he killed 25 Taliban fighters while serving as an Apache helicopter pilot in Afghanistan, a claim criticized by both Taliban and British military veterans.

Harry told ITV that he only cried once after his mother died: at her funeral.

He said he felt guilty for not showing emotion when he and William greeted the crowd of mourners outside Kensington Palace, Diana's London home.

In the book, Harry blames his family's ethics for holding his own, saying he had "learned all too well the family maxim that crying is not an option."

The Associated Press news agency bought a copy of the book in Spanish ahead of its worldwide publication on Tuesday.

"There were 50,000 bouquets for our mum and we were there shaking hands with people, smiling," Harry told ITV reporter Tom Bradby.

“I have seen the videos, true, I have reviewed everything.

We didn't understand why their hands were wet, but it was the tears that were drying up."

"Everyone thought and felt that they knew our mother, and the two people closest to her, the two people dearest to her, were incapable of showing any emotion at that moment," he lamented.
