A new bombshell biography, Prince Harry: Brother, Soldier, Son, paints a defamatory picture of the young royal and claims to expose secrets of Prince Harry’s childhood.
Now, in the new issue of In Touch, Princess Diana’s former butler and longtime confidant sets the record straight in an exclusive interview. “This sensationalism is pure fiction,” Paul Burrell tells In Touch exclusively. “This is yet another author taking potshots.”
Penny Junor, the author of the bio — and a friend of Harry’s father, Prince Charles — insists to In Touch: “I’m not bashing anyone. I believe the story I tell is a correct one.” She also claims the book was approved by “Harry’s team.”
But Burrell insists there’s no way Harry collaborated. “[Harry] certainly would not condone any publication which sullied the memory of Diana,” he tells the mag. “[It’s sad] that an author who doesn’t know Harry has dug up [false] ammunition with which to sell her book.”
