Starting with his own father who looked at him skeptically, everyone else considered Harry an outcast. Reports even claim that Charles himself called him a spare child after Diana gave birth to Prince Harry after William. Rumors spread by his own father question whether Charles is even his real father.
Although Major James Hewitt it became clear, the harsh accusations that he was Harry’s real father never stopped. This happened because when Charles was engaged to his lover Camilla, Diana sought comfort from her close acquaintances, one of whom was his former lover Hewitt. Clearing the air, Harry took one of his interviews to talk about the redheaded genes of Diana’s family, who were previously blamed for their lover bringing her down.
