Judge Judy has had enough of Prince Harry's royal bombshells. The sharp-tongued judge did not hold back when she aired her opinion after leaks of the prince's memoir, Spare, made the news.
Judge Judy Calls Prince Harry "Selfish, Spoiled and Ungrateful" - She 'Spares' No Words
"Selfish, Spoiled, And Ungrateful"
When asked on Good Morning Britain how she would feel if it had been her grandchild who was airing out their private life, she said: "I will tell you that I would be furious and would think that child or grandchild was a selfish, spoilt, ungrateful one. That's what I would feel and I'd be really hurt."
Biting The Hand That Fed You
“I think anybody – anybody with a brain – would see that it’s disingenuous. It’s biting the hand that fed you, it’s unseemly,” the 80-year-old media personality continued.
She Didn't Hold Back
Following the interview, hosts Richard Madely and Susanna Reid reacted to Judy's commentary. "She said she wouldn’t specifically talk about what she thought about… blimey. I think we were left in no doubt."
'Spare' Going Viral
The title of the tell-all alludes to his father's remark, calling him the "spare" son, while older brother William is the heir. In the book, Prince Harry drops more revelations about his complicated relationship with his family.
Prince William Physically Attacked Harry
One of the biggest revelations of the memoir talks about a heated confrontation between the brothers, over Meghan Markle. It ended with William knocking Harry to the floor.
"He grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and he knocked me to the floor. I landed on the dog’s bowl, which cracked under my back, the pieces cutting into me. I lay there for a moment, dazed, then got to my feet and told him to get out.”
How He Lost Virginity
Harry also talked about how he lost his virginity at 17 years old to an older woman. The experience left him feeling humiliated and the woman treated him like a "young stallion".
Experimenting With Drugs
Drug use was also a hot topic in the memoir. Harry talked about experimenting with different drugs including cocaine, weed, and mushrooms. He wrote: "It wasn't much fun and it did not make me feel especially happy as it seemed to do to everyone else, but it did make me feel different, and that was my main objective.
Prince Charles Begged For Peace
When Prince Philip died in 2021, Harry briefly reunited with his family to attend the memorial service. Harry revealed that his dad pleaded with William and him to stop the fighting.
"Please, boys... don't make my final years a misery."
William Is Privately Seething
The compelling memoir hit US bookshelves on January 10, 2023. It has been getting mixed reviews and is currently #2 on Amazon's nonfiction bestseller list.
The palace has yet to react but royal expert Katie Nicholl tells Page Six: “William’s privately seething and devastated by what Harry has done. And just cannot forgive Harry for the things that he’s written.”
