The royal drama is coming in thick and fast. Like, really thick. And, really fast. Hot on the heels of Netflix's Harry & Meghan series, leaked excerpts from Prince Harry's memoir have dropped more royal bombshells, including that he lost his virginity in a field behind a pub.

Elsewhere in the memoir, Spare – which is actually due for release next week – the Duke of Sussex discusses speculation over who his "real father" is, as well as his reservations over King Charles III's marriage to Camilla Parker Bowles.

According to The Sun, Harry writes in his memoir that he and Prince William urged their father not to wed his long-time lover, Camilla, over fears that she would become a "wicked stepmother" and be unfairly compared to their mother, the late Princess Diana.

The Sun reports that Harry claims he and his brother had separate meetings with Camilla – who he describes as "the other woman" – before she officially joined the family. Eventually, however, Harry says he and William decided they were willing to forgive her in "their hearts" if she could make Charles happy. "We could recognise the absent glances, the empty sighs, the frustration always visible on his face," the Duke writes.

So far, neither Buckingham Palace or Kensington Palace have responded to any of the claims made in Harry's memoir, which also include allegations that he was physically attacked by William during an argument about Meghan Markle.

Cosmopolitan UK is yet to see a copy of Spare.
