Rumors still circulate Prince Charles is not Prince Harry‘s father. Since the late Princess Diana admitted in a famous 1995 interview to having an affair with James Hewitt, and there’s a slight resemblance between the polo player and Harry, the speculation hasn’t gone to rest. Hewitt has denied the rumors throughout the years but was recently asked again.
“No, I’m not,” he said when asked point-blank.
“Why does that keep getting repeated?” the interviewer questioned.
“Sells papers,” he responded. “It’s worse for him probably, poor chap.”
He noted Harry had already been born when he met Diana.
When asked how their relationship blossomed from horseback instructor and student to lovers, he said, “It’s a gradual period and then, you know, suddenly you can’t get enough of each other or see each other as much as you want.”
He later added, “I don’t regret [meeting her]. I regret some of the things that have been caused by that but not that at all. No way.”
“I think she was quite easy to fall in love with really, so I think I can be forgiven for that.”
