Lady Colin Campbell has blasted Prince Harry for “twisting facts” over the Duke’s biographer’s account of Queen Elizabeth II’s death.
The author and socialite, 74, rubbished claims in Omid Scobie’s new book Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy’s Fight for Survival, that Prince William wished to “stymy” Harry’s bid to return to Britain.
In the book, published in August this year, Mr Scobie claimed Prince William had ignored multiple attempts to contact him on the day the late Queen passed.
The account adds that William also ignored a text from his brother regarding arranging travel to Balmoral, where the Windsor patriarch spent her final moments.
In an explosive interview, Lady Colin pinned the blame on Harry instead and accused him of wanting to “inflict Meghan” on the Royal Family.
Speaking to GB News, she said the “reality” is that Prince Harry could have communicated with other family members.
She claimed he could have gotten in touch with his uncles, who had travelled to Scotland together.
The socialite accused him of “twisting facts”, and again insisted he had other people whom he could contact.
She said: “He is twisting facts to make a narrative that doesn’t make sense.”
“Harry wanted to bring Meghan, he had heard the news from his father, he had people he could be in touch with. William wasn’t stymying him.”
Lady Colin added: “Harry wanted to bring Meghan, he wanted to inflict Meghan upon them, but they refused.”
Mr Scobie quoted a selection of royal sources who claimed Prince Harry was ignored by his brother, who “didn’t want to see him”.
One source said the stateside Prince was “completely by himself” when it came to the Queen’s impending death, and another claimed Prince William had “ignored him”.
The biographer also issued a scathing appraisal of the two Princes’ relationship, and claimed in an interview with People magazine that the heir-to-the-throne sees him as a “defector”.
Others within the Firm reportedly view him as a “threat to the Crown”, he added, as the rift between the Hollywood and British branches grows.
