In the latest of his controversial interviews, Prince Harry has finally spoken about Queen Consort Camilla directly, saying she's "dangerous." Harry's criticism of his stepmother crosses a redline his father, King Charles III, had previously set. He spoke about Camilla's poor public image due to the infamous affair and said she sacrificed him on her publicity altar to help her image.

During a previous ITV interview, the Duke said that he would no longer share details of his communication with Prince William. This announcement was a bit shocking, considering he's shared a lot of their correspondence with the public recently. He also clarified his previous statements about the royal family being racist, saying they were more of an "unconscious bias."

Prince Harry Criticized Queen Camilla In A New Interview

On the evening of Monday July 19, the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Charles and Camilla, attend a reception at Duchy of Cornwall Nursery, Lostwithiel, to celebrate the launch of The Prince's Countryside Fund's Confident Rural Communities Network Picture shows Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla Parker Bowles.

While on on CBS's 60 Minutes, Prince Harry finally addressed his stepmother, Queen Consort Camilla, heavily criticizing her. Criticisms of Camilla are a red line that his father, King Charles, has clearly established in the past. In Harry's memoir Spare, he wrote that Camilla had sacrificed him on "her personal PR altar."

The Prince also revealed to the world that he and his brother Prince William asked their father not to marry Camilla. He then accused his stepmother of scheming her way into a marriage with Charles and then into securing her position as Queen Consort. He said, via Daily Mail, "She was the villain, she was a third person in the marriage, and she needed to rehabilitate her image."

Harry continued, "That made her dangerous because of the connections that she was forging within the British press. And there was open willingness on both sides to trade information and with a family built on hierarchy, and with her on the way to being Queen Consort, there was going to be people or bodies left in the street because of that."
