Did Harry say this deliberately after his dad suggested Camilla was his parent?

I smiled when I read about Harry saying : "My mother, who believed passionately in this cause, would be proud of my association with Halo" after reading Charles said 'Harry shoved off knowing his ancient parents were here'

It reminded me Harry knows who his mother is despite the relentless spin by Charles and his buddies.

I have never, ever been able to see the slightest resemblance between Harry and Charles. Nothing. That doesn't mean they're not related though.
Mind you, I fail to see what a resemblance between Harry and his cousin (George McCorquodale) has to do with anything? They're related through his mother, so his father would be irrelevant.

And whilst we shouldn't speak ill of the date and I respect William and Harry's clear affection for their late mother, I think she was a complete fruit-cake and all those who were weeping and wailing as if they'd lost a close relative, had no idea of who she was or what she was really like.

ROFL at Neil Armstrong as Harry's dad. It's every conspiracy theory ever wrapped up with a lovely bow.

Arf at all the suggestions for Harry's father.

Look here at pic 4 (**DM WARNING**) to see a pic of a ginger Charles. Really no doubt.

So from skimming this thread I summarise that Diana's sister and Lance Armstrong are Harry's parents.

And that he got Cheryl Cole pregnant.

Did I miss anything?

I agree Snazzy and I am sure if there was any doubt it was checked! Thank goodness the brothers are close.

Harry looks just like Charles in the face - I don't understand why some people don't seem to see this! He looks more like him than William, who got more of Diana in his features. The Spencer red hair gets people speculating but he is the spit of Charles otherwise.

Harry is getting more like his Dad - is anyone really suggesting that no one absolutely no one in all his years at school and army etc didn't take a hair from his head or a cup from his table and have his dna tested to see if it's the same as his dad's or brothers, I mean this would have been the newspaper scoop of the century. He's probably had more tests done than anyone.

Harry does look amusingly like one of Di's many lovers but the dates don't add up. He's Charles'.

Charles probably couldn't be bothered to say 'his ancient father and stepmum'.

sorry, OP - some of us thought Di a waste of space and quite like Camilla. Anyway, Di forgot the seatbelt and is dead, and Charles has made a happy second marriage.

If she had lived I would hope at 50 she would have been a bit more emotionally intelligent than she had been in her 30s. She was very young when she died.

If Diana had lived I wonder whether her sons would find her a little wearing from time to time.

I imagine she'd need plenty of assurance along the lines of: 'No, Mummy, you're way foxier than Kate's Ma.'

AViewFromTheFridge Sat 11-May-13 08:32:55

Hazel, I read that as "living with Dorothy" and thought it was some sort of comment on his sexuality!

lljkk Sat 11-May-13 08:18:56

Overthinking it, no one will ever forget who Harry's mom was.

I refer to my dad & stepmum as "my parents" or "my folks". I'm not even very fond of stepmum! But she is a sort of parent to me.

(Reminds me American Mother's Day is tomorrow)

Diana has been dead more than 15 years. The Queen Mother has been dead less than 5. The royals don't talk about the Queen Mother much either. Care to read something into that?

bkgirl Fri 10-May-13 23:29:31

Yes but Kate is married to William who I remember saying proudly years ago that his mother was a lady. Again, I think it's lovely she used his mums ring. It says a lot about both Wills and Kate. smile

I agree Viv, there must be many that would like to lessen her vital role.

TheDoctrineOfSnatch Fri 10-May-13 23:20:05

I really don't think that's true.. Kate wears her engagement ring, FFS.

Viviennemary Fri 10-May-13 22:04:07

I think the royals would rather people forgot there ever was a person called Diana who was married to Charles and the Mother of Harry and William.

morethanpotatoprints Fri 10-May-13 22:02:09

I mean Lance Armstrong grin secret love child eh?

morethanpotatoprints Fri 10-May-13 22:01:36

I don't think he looks anything like Prince Charles.
He's the dead spit of Neil Armstrong.

exoticfruits Fri 10-May-13 21:55:17

I think it is perfectly normal-DS would say parents and not mother and step father-it is what people do.
Harry looks very like Charles around the eyes.

tribpot Fri 10-May-13 21:35:41

I refer to my mum and step-dad as 'my parents', it's just shorthand. I have even done it to my dad although not intentionally - arf.

bkgirl Fri 10-May-13 21:24:35

If you are implying that I think they loathe her, you are wrong. I really hope they are not weighed down by hatred and can see the good in people. I am just glad their mum remains....well, their mum.

Also I think if you want to see William and Harry's real attitude to CAmilla you need only to look at two things. Firstly their widely reported excitement and enthusiasm at their father's wedding to her and secondly consider who William and Kate picked for the role of small flower girl - Camilla's grandaughter. It clearly suits some people's world view to pretend they secretly loathe her but it's just nonsense.

The aged Ps is from Dickens isn't it? Great Expectations???

Alibabaandthe40nappies Fri 10-May-13 19:26:24

OP you really are reading too much into this.

William and Harry constantly refer to Diana in the course of their charity work, it is in no way unusual that he made those comments and you can read nothing into their timing at all unless you have an agenda
