Prince Harry’s degrading relationship with the British royal family is not showing any signs of improvement. After he and his family settled in America after being barred from their palace, the Duke of Sussex released his much-read memoir, titled Spare. Well though Prince Harry made some revelations in his memoir, one instance stands out pretty much and that is the nickname of Queen Camilla given to her by Prince Harry and his elder brother, Prince William. 

What name does Prince Harry give to Queen Camilla during his childhood? 

Prince William and Prince Harry are the offspring of King Charles III and the late Princess Diana, making Queen Camilla their stepmother. In his memoir, Spare, Prince Harry revealed, as retrieved via Mirror, that they were not happy with their father’s marriage with Camilla and would refer to her as the “other woman” and that the brother duo even begged their father to not marry Camilla.

The Duke of Sussex even commented upon Princess Diana’s iconic BBC Panorama interview, where talking about her marriage the late princess shared, “There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded,” hinting towards Camilla's consort dynamic with Charles

Addressing his mother’s comment, Harry shared her mother’s math was off, as he felt that the feelings of him and his brother were not taken into consideration as the adults continued with their love triangle. But talking about their father’s relationship with Camilla, Harry wrote that he and Williams sensed something wrong and were struggling to keep up with the developments between them, as he referred to Camilla as the other woman. 


“We didn’t understand what was going on with her and Pa, certainly, but we intuited enough, we sensed the presence of the Other Woman, because we suffered the downstream effects,” Prince Harry wrote.
