Prince Harry has made sensational claims about senior figures within the royal family in an apparently bungled release of his autobiography, Spare.
The book details drug use, clairvoyants, battlefield killings, physical violence and deep-seated family grievances.
It was due to be released next week, but copies have leaked and Spanish-language copies were released early in Spain.
Television networks have also started showing parts of interviews held with Prince Harry held in the lead-up to the book’s release.
While the ABC is yet to see a copy of the book, news outlets are reporting Prince Harry’s claims.
Meanwhile, spokespeople for King Charles and Prince William have declined to comment.
Why is any of this relevant? Prince Harry is fifth in line to the throne and the youngest son of King Charles III, Australia’s head of state.
