Prince Harry is expected to address his relationship with Camilla, 75, in his memoir, Spare, to be released on January 10.
He told Cooper: “If you are led to believe, as a member of the family, that being on the front page, having positive headlines, positive stories written about you, is going to improve your reputation or increase the chances of you being accepted as monarch by the British public, then that’s what you’re gonna do.”
Harry also addressed a statement the Sussexes put out condemning the tabloid coverage of their relationship.
Cooper asked “You write that your dad and your brother, William, were furious with you for doing that. Why?”
To which the Duke replied: “They felt as though it made them look bad. They felt as though they didn’t have a chance or weren’t able to do that for their partners. What Meghan had to go through was similar in some part to what Kate and what Camilla went through, very different circumstances.”
