Penny Junor’s revelations in the Daily Mail’s serialization of her new Prince Harry book keep on coming.
After a divorce, friends often have to decide which one of the divorced couple they are going to be friends with, and journalists frequently face the same dilemma. Junor has long since fallen into the Prince Charles camp.
Still, today’s big revelation from "Prince Harry: Brother, Soldier, Son" by Penny Junor, to be published by Hodder & Stoughton in the UK on Thursday, that Princess Diana made phone calls to Camilla telling her she had sent a hit man to kill her, is an extraordinarily bold anti-Diana claim, by any standards.
Junor writes, “Camilla had threatening telephone calls from her. They were always made in the dead of the night, when Camilla was alone in her country house in the middle of nowhere. ‘I’ve sent someone to kill you,’ Diana would say. ‘They’re outside in the garden. Look out of the window; can you see them?’”
Junor also lays into Diana for her famous interview with Martin Bashir in which she said ‘there were three of us’ in the marriage so ‘it was a bit crowded’ accusing Diana of using the interview to “take a swipe at all the people William and Harry loved best.”
Tomorrow we are promised details on the “debauchery that nearly killed” Harry’s army career.
