Prince Harry says drug use is ‘important to acknowledge’ as he speaks on past

In a short clip shared of Prince Harry’s upcoming TV interview with journalist and good friend Tom Bradby, the father-of-two addresses his previous drug use.

The topic is discussed in his upcoming memoir ‘Spare’, sparking Tom to bring up the matter.

Tom, 55, interviewed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on their Africa tour in 2019 and famously asked Meghan Markle if she was ok, to which the former Suits actress confirmed that royal life “had really been a struggle”.

Once again asking the difficult questions, Tom quizzes Harry, 38, about his past drug use.

He tells the Duke: “There’s a fair amount of drugs (in the book). Marijuana, magic mushrooms, cocaine. I mean, that’s going to surprise people.”

Harry appears to agree and says it was “important to acknowledge”.

The royal also states he wants to reconcile with his family – something which he says cannot happen without “some accountability”.

“I want reconciliation,” he says, “but, first, there needs to be some accountability”.

He also states: “The truth, supposedly, at the moment, has been there’s only one side of the story, right? But, there’s two sides to every story.”

It comes after Harry alleged in his book that William had called his American wife Meghan “difficult”, “rude” and “abrasive” – comments which the younger brother said parroted “the press narrative” about his wife.

The Guardian, which first reported the dispute, said it was able to obtain a copy of the book, due to be published on 10 January, despite strong security measures around its release.

In an earlier-released teaser of the ITV interview, Harry says he is publishing his memoirs because he does not know “how staying silent is ever going to make things better”.

The full ITV interview is due to be broadcast two days before publication and, in a trailer, Tom asks: “Wouldn’t your brother say to you, ‘Harry, how could you do this to me after everything? After everything we went through?’ Wouldn’t that be what he would say?”

Harry replies: “He would probably say all sorts of different things.”

Tom has long been following Harry’s story – as well as the rest of the Royal Family’s – after becoming a correspondent in the 1990s.

He acted as ITV’s royal correspondent for four years, and covered huge stories such as Princess Margaret and the Queen Mother’s deaths, as well as the late Queen’s Golden Jubilee.
