Prince Harry Breaks Silence On Rumour James Hewitt Is His Real Dad

Prince Harry has spoken out about rumours. In his explosive new book Spare, James Hewitt plays his real father. In his new memoir, the 38-year-old expresses himself.

“Pa [King Charles] liked telling stories, and this was one of the best in his repertoire,” Prince Harry says in one excerpt seen by Page Six.

“He’d always finish with a burst of philosophy… Who knows if I’m the real Prince of Wales? Who knows if I’m your biological father?

“He’d laugh and laugh, though it was a remarkably unfunny joke, given the rumour circulating just then that my actual father was one of Mummy’s former lovers: Major James Hewitt. One cause of this rumour was Major Hewitt’s flaming ginger hair, but another cause was sadism.”

He added: “Never mind that my mother didn’t meet Major Hewitt until long after I was born.” Harry also writes in his memoir that he killed 25 people while serving in Afghanistan.

In Spare, he writes: “Most soldiers don’t know exactly how many kills they have to their credit. Under battle conditions, you often fire indiscriminately.

“However, in the age of Apaches and laptops, everything I did in the course of two tours of duty was recorded and time-stamped.

“I could always tell exactly how many enemy combatants I had killed. And it seemed essential for me not to be afraid of that figure.

“Among the many things I learned in the Armed Forces, one of the most important was to be accountable for my own actions.” He continued:

“So my number: twenty-five. It was not something that filled me with satisfaction, but I was not ashamed either.

“Naturally, I would have preferred not to have that figure on my military resume, or in my head, but I would also have preferred to live in a world without the Taliban, a world without war.

“However, even for a casual practitioner of wishful thinking like myself, there are realities that cannot be changed.”
