Prince Harry says the Royals are ‘blue blooded’ because they are ‘colder than the rest’


Prince Harry saw himself like any other human being during a key event in his life.

Writing in his memoir ‘Spare’, the Duke of Sussex reveals that 2016 made him hostile to the media over their attacks on his then-girlfriend Meghan Markle.

During a royal engagement, Harry found himself resisting the press.

He writes: “I felt worried and intensely hostile towards the press, and I was now surrounded by…press. The same royal reporters…Looking at them all, I thought: Accomplice.”

Harry then reveals that he was injured by a needle in the middle of his thoughts.

“Then the needle entered my finger. I watched the blood spurt out and remembered all the people, friends and strangers, fellow soldiers, journalists, novelists, classmates, who had ever called me, me and my family, blue bloods. That old shortcut for aristocracy, for royalty, I wondered where it came from.”

He adds: “Someone said our blood was blue because it was colder than other people’s, but that couldn’t be true, could it? My family always said he was blue because we were special, but that couldn’t be true either. Watching the nurse funnel my blood into a test tube, I thought, Red, like everyone else.”
