The writer says an insider told her that Camilla was “wary” of Prince Harry.
An insider says Queen Camilla was ‘wary’ of Prince Harry
in this book Camilla: From Untouchable to Queen, writer Andrea Levine discusses Camilla’s life and how she navigated royal life. Levine says an insider thinks Camilla wasn’t easy being my stepmother at first.
According to the insider, Camilla was “wary” of Prince Harry. Levine’s source says Camila would occasionally pick him up “give her a long, cold look.” I reportedly found this worrisome. It probably took a while for Prince Harry and Prince William To adapt after their father married another woman. However, according to the book, Camilla and Harry were just fine.
Queen Camilla’s approach to parenting
Levine’s source says Camilla made an effort to support Prince Harry rather than try to become his “surrogate mother”. The source says that despite Camilla’s efforts to offer support, Prince Harry appeared to be a “lost soul in many ways”.
The book goes on to say that Camilla is not trying to force a relationship as a stepmother. According to Finn, she understands that Prince William’s children Prince Harry’s children already have grandparents.
Camila’s relationship with Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle
Levine says Camilla and Kate Middleton have gotten closer over the years. Camilla was reportedly keen to help Kate settle into the royal family as both had what the author describes as a “normal life” before marriage. I identified with Kate. According to Finn, Camilla Kate helped learn about the customs and practices that members of the royal family are expected to follow.
Levine says Camila also welcomed Meghan Markle with pleasure. According to a senior royal, Camilla thought Meghan would represent the modern royal family well. Camilla reportedly had her for lunch and gave her advice on how to adjust to her new life. At first, everyone seemed to be fine, says Levine. However, according to Levine’s source, Meghan appeared “unresponsive” to Camilla’s directions and allegedly wanted to “go her own way”.
A source says Prince Harry was ‘negative’ about Camilla
According to Levine’s source, Prince Harry has been “negative” about Camilla. The source believes Harry’s alleged behavior could be part of a kind of “remedial process” where he “reclaims” parts of his life and “blames someone else” for the mistakes he made. Levine says another source told her that Meghan was also “terrible” about Camila, too.
Not surprisingly, there was an adjustment period for Prince Harry and Prince William after King Charles III married Camilla. They were most likely still dealing with the death of their mother, Princess Diana. We can’t know for sure if Levine’s source was right about the “negative” or “terrible” things that were said about Camilla. Hopefully any alleged feud between Camilla, Meghan and Harry will be resolved.
