Prince Harry Claims William, Kate Middleton Urged Him To Wear Nazi Costume

Prince Harry claimed that his brother Prince William and sister-in-law Kate Middleton urged him to put on the Nazi uniform he infamously donned for a 2005 costume occasion and “howled with laughter” after they noticed him dressed up.

The accusation is reportedly detailed in Harry’s upcoming memoir, “Spare,” based on Web page Six. Harry wrote that he couldn’t determine between a standard pilot uniform and that of a Nazi, the outlet reported, main the younger prince to name his brother for assist.

“I phoned Willy and Kate, asked what they thought. Nazi uniform, they said,” wrote Harry.

When he tried on the uniform for them, he wrote, “They both howled. Worse than Willy’s leotard outfit! Way more ridiculous! Which, again, was the point.”

Harry was 20 when he attended the “Native and Colonial”-themed costume occasion. Tabloid pictures confirmed him with a pink swastika-emblazoned armband on his biceps. His brother was dressed as a lion.

“I felt so ashamed afterwards,” Harry stated in Netflix’s “Harry & Meghan” documentary sequence, which premiered in December.

All I wished to do was make it proper,” he continued. “I sat down and spoke to the chief rabbi in London, which had a profound impact on me. I went to Berlin and spoke to a Holocaust survivor.”

Royal historian Robert Lacey, in his 2020 ebook “Battle of Brothers,” stated the costume incident signaled the beginning of Harry and William’s falling out.

“Harry chose his costume in conjunction with his elder brother — the future King William V, then 22, who had laughed all the way back to Highgrove (Charles’ country home) with the younger sibling he was supposedly mentoring — and then onwards to the party together,” Lacey wrote, per Web page Six.

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

Harry is sitting down with Anderson Cooper and ITV’s Tom Bradby for interviews set to air on Jan. 8 — the third anniversary of Harry and Meghan saying their exit as working royals.

Harry’s memoir will likely be formally launched on Jan. 10.
