Princess Diana’s former protection officer claimed that she would have believed Prince Harry’s book “isn’t a good idea”, a news report has claimed. The report further stated that the officer has said that he thinks Prince Harry has a “revenge issue” with the Royal Family.
Ken Wharfe, who was Diana’s personal protection officer from 1988 to 1993, told Sky News he felt that the Duke of Sussex’s memoir, Spare, has all but ruined any chance of a reconciliation with the rest of the Firm.
The former policeman said that Harry was always aware that he would come behind his brother from when they were young, recalling an argument between the pair when they were both boys.
He said: “There was this extraordinary conversation that I remember on a journey to Highgrove one weekend, when Harry would have been about six or seven, and an argument between the princes in the back seat was being refereed by the nanny while Diana was driving.
“Harry lent across to William and said, ‘It’s alright for you, you’ll be king one day and I won’t, therefore I can do what I want.’
“That was 30 years ago and that is exactly what he is doing now.
“In a way, given the circumstances and the fallout around his wedding in 2017 there’s a revenge issue here really.
“He is, in his view, trying to set the record straight.
“I find that rather sad because I think that, deep down, he didn’t really want to leave the Royal Family and live in America.
