UK palace allies push back against Prince Harry’s claims


              FILE - Britain's Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales and his sons Prince William, left and Prince Harry wait for the coffin of Princess Diana to be loaded into a hearse outside of Westminster Abbey, in London on Sept. 6, 1997. An explosive memoir reveals many facets of Prince Harry, from bereaved boy and troubled teen to wartime soldier and unhappy royal. From accounts of cocaine use and losing his virginity to raw family rifts, “Spare” exposes deeply personal details about Harry and the wider royal family. It is dominated by Harry's rivalry with brother Prince William and the death of the boys’ mother, Princess Diana in 1997. (John Gaps III, Pool Photo via AP, File)
