King Charles III is likely to be furious over “derogatory” nicknames prince harry has given private secretaries in his memoir, a royal biographer claims.
Tea duke of sussex refers to three “brokers” as The Bee, The Fly and The Wasp, writing: “I’d spent my life dealing with brokers, scores of them. But now I dealt mostly with just three, all middle-aged white men who’d managed to consolidate power through a series of bold Machiavellian maneuvers.”
Robert Jobson said that anyone with a “semblance” of knowledge about the workings of the royal household would know who the “deeply insulting” comments are about.
Harry has denied boasting about killing 25 people in Afghanistan, describing this as “very dangerous” spin.

“Without a doubt, the most dangerous lie that they have told is that I somehow boasted about the number of people that I killed in Afghanistan,” Harry said.
