Prince Harry: Royal correspondent Camilla Tominey responds to Spare criticism


Royal correspondent hits back at Prince Harry after he trashed her in his memoir Spare: Camilla Tominey insists they had a ‘good working relationship’ and he’s only complaining now because he expects ‘undiluted praise’

Veteran royal correspondent Camilla Tominey has spoken out after Prince Harry criticised her directly in his new memoir Spare.

The Duke of Sussex accused Tominey, 44, who is the associate editor of London’s Daily Telegraph, of ‘always getting stuff wrong’ when reporting on his life.

Speaking on Australia’s Today show on Monday, Tominey revealed she used to have a ‘good working relationship’ with Harry, 38, but he simply can’t handle criticism.

‘We always used to have quite a good working relationship, but Harry doesn’t seem to take kindly to journalists that don’t write anything other than undiluted praise,’ she told hosts Karl Stefanovic and Sarah Abo.

Tominey also said Harry’s goal of ‘taking down his family and the institution’ of the Royal Family wasn’t earning him much support in Britain.

‘His popularity is tanking in the UK,’ she explained.

‘The book is a real mix because there are some touching pages about the loss of his mother and you can completely sympathise with him.

‘But then it goes from those tender moments to discussions about whether or not he had frostbite on his genitals and how he lost his virginity… it’s too much information.’

Tominey was one of the first journalists to report on the dispute between Meghan Markle and her sister-in-law Kate Middleton over Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress, which supposedly left Kate in tears.

She wrote October 2018 she had ‘spoken to two separate sources’ confirming the version of events in which Kate was the one crying, adding that one unnamed friend claimed Kate wanted to follow ‘protocol’ with the bridesmaids, including Charlotte, then three, wearing tights, but Harry’s wife Meghan disagreed.

However, the Sussexes later claimed in their March 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey that it was Meghan who broke down in tears. 

Harry slammed Tominey’s report in his Spare, writing: ‘Days later came the coup de grace: from a royal correspondent, a sci-fi fantasy describing the “growing froiduer” between Kate and Meg, claiming that, according to “two sources”, Meg had reduced Kate to tears about the bridesmaid dresses.

‘This particular royal correspondent had always made me ill. She’d always always got stuff wrong.’
