Reading tip: Prince Harry: SPARE. London 2023: Prince Harry about his father, the English King Charles III.: "For instance, Pa [King Charles III.] confessed around this time [around 1997] that he's been "persecuted" as a boy. Granny and Grandpa, to toughen him up, had shipped him off to Gordonstoun, a boarding school, where he was horrendously bullied. The most likely victims of Gordonstoun bullies, he said, were creative types, sensitive types, bookish types - in other words, Pa. His finest qualities were bait for the toughs. I remember him murmuring ominously: I nearly didn't survive. How had he? Head down, clutching his teddy bear, which he still owned years later. Teddy went everywhere with Pa. It was a pitiful object, with broken arms and dangly threads, holes patched up here and there. It looked, I imagined, like Pa might have after the bullies had finished with him. Teddy expressed eloquently, better than Pa ever could, the essential loneliness of his childhood. Willy [Prince William] and I agreed that Pa deserved better. Apologies to Teddy, Pa deserved a proper companion. That was why, when asked, Willy and I promised Pa that we'd welcome Camilla [Parker Bowles] into the family. The only thing we asked in return was that he not marry her. You don't need to remarry, we pleaded. ... We support you, we said. We endorse Camilla, we said. Just please don't marry her. Just be together, Pa. He didn't answer. But she answered. Straightaway. Shortly after our private summits with her, she began to play the long game, a campaign aimed at marriage and eventually the Crown. (With Pa's blessing, we presumed.) Stories began to appear everywhere, in all the papers, about her private conservation with Willy, stories that contained pinpoint accurate details, none of which had come from Willy, of course. They could only have been leaked by the one other person present. And the leaking had obviously been abetted by the new spin doctor Camilla had talked Pa into hiring." (pp. 40-41).
