Royal biographer Angela Levin says Prince Harry was ‘mean’ about Queen Consort Camilla

Royal biographer Angela Levin claimed Prince Harry had been ‘mean’ about Queen Consort Camilla, and hit Netflix series The Crown was ‘cruel’ to her.

The author sat down with Lorraine replacement host Christine Lampard to speak candidly about the Queen Consort, following the release of her new biography Camilla, From Outcast to Future Queen Consort.

Christine Lampard said: “Angela, you felt compelled to write this book because you knew her and thought she had been misrepresented over the years and wanted your version of events.”

Angela said: ‘Yes, it’s perfect actually. I decided that I had to rebalance things. One was The Crown, who was really cruel to her and the other was Prince Harry, who also said some really nasty things about her.

Christine Lampard drew comparisons to the late Princess Diana saying “people didn’t like Camilla because they liked Diana so much”. Above, King Charles with the Queen consort pictured at Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral this month

Angela Levin, journalist and royal biographer, said The Crown had been “cruel” to Queen Consort Camilla on ITV’s Lorraine and also touched on Prince Harry’s feelings for his mother-in-law.

In The Crown, Camilla says she is just a mistress to the Prince of Wales, like her great-grandmother, Alice Keppel, who was mistress to King Edward VII, who is the great-great-grand -father of King Charles.

Charles confirms that Edward loved Alice on the show, but he focuses more on Diana’s torment during the marriage.

The biographer, who has written nine non-fiction books, focusing on senior members of the royal family, says portrayals of the Queen consort have been unfair, saying “the more you get to know her, the more you love”.

In 2015, Angela revealed that she had spent three months with Camilla to write a long play.

She sought out people who would publicly say the royal, those who had worked with her throughout her various charitable endeavours, staff members and friends in an effort to make the book as plausible as possible.

Angela also revealed that Camilla had invited her to meet the Queen, in a subtle gesture to show her that “despite the rumours, the couple had a close bond”.

Host Christine Lampard said: “It obviously wasn’t always easy, a lot of people didn’t like it, mainly Camilla because they loved Diana so much. It was always going to be a tough time.”

Angela agreed, saying: “Yeah, they met when Charles was 22 and she was 24 and he wasn’t sure he wanted to get involved – and he also knew he would be in trouble with his parents. “

“He knew that the first in line to the throne would have to marry into the aristocracy and someone who was a virgin.

“Camilla was from the aristocracy but not at the highest level – and she had had connections before.

“They got along extremely well.”

Despite rumors to the contrary, the Queen and then Duchess of Cornwall, now Queen Consort Camilla 'had a close bond' with each other and shared a love of horses, which Angela Levin witnessed when she was invited to meet the couple at Buckingham Palace, pictured at the Trooping of the Color ceremony in 2013 with King Charles

Angela also spoke about the Queen Consort’s charity work behind the scenes and said her approach was “ideal for Charles”.

She said: “Camilla doesn’t turn up to be in the spotlight, she’s right in the middle of it, which is ideal for Charles as he won’t be jealous like with his first wife, but doing a tremendous job behind the curtain – she does not need praise for herself.

“What she did were things that the Royal Family don’t necessarily do to deal with rape and domestic violence.

“She also thinks literacy is really important and she travels the country to help families who have had a lot of difficulties in their lives – to encourage them to get their children to read.

“She does it with pleasure, it worked very well. Her book club started in the pandemic, she built good people reading now who maybe weren’t.

The author then recounted the time Camilla invited her over, saying she had a “surprise for her.”

Angela said: ‘I got the call to meet the Duchess and of course I dropped everything. ‘

They said she had a surprise for me, but don’t get mad if it didn’t happen – I didn’t know what it was, I thought it might be a box of chocolates, I don’t know .

“I arrived and had practiced my bow. She was there, the queen was there. They said ‘come with me’ and we walked into Buckingham Palace and Camilla was there with the Queen – and they took me to the stables where an 80-year-old horse expert was.

“He was supposed to have the ability to make a horse that had never been ridden before, rideable after 20 minutes without a saddle or anything, which I thought was not on, but there you go.

“The idea of ​​it, they were constantly talking and laughing. I thought after that it was such a smart and nice thing to do. She didn’t have to say anything inappropriate because there were rumors that they didn’t get along. Without saying a word, Camilla showed me that she and the Queen shared a close bond – which was evident through their shared love of horses.

“I can’t imagine anyone else going out of their way to make my life easier, and it gave me a positive story to work with.”

Christine said: “This book will give us interesting insight into someone we know but don’t know very well.”

Angela said, “The more you get to know her, the more you love her.”
