Troubled California-based royal Harry, Duke of Sussex, has suggested illegal drug use helped him see the “truth”, according to his memoirs Reserve.
While the Z-list style tell-all memoir, which also details such gruesome events as Harry losing his virginity outdoors to an older woman who treated him like a horse and being thrown into a dog food bowl by brother William during an argument over Meghan Markle’s alleged rudeness, was not to be released until Tuesday, with pre-release publicity strictly controlled through tame legacy media journalists.
That plan has been thwarted by Spanish booksellers who have released the Spanish-language version of the memoir, but the press is now awash with light accounts of various sordid episodes in the vigilante royal’s life – including heavy drug abuse from the age of 17.
“I was a 17-year-old willing to try almost anything that would disrupt the established order. At least that’s what I tried to convince myself,” Harry said of the fact that he started cocaine lines in 2002 – perhaps oblivious to the fact that he still seems keen to disrupt the established order as a multi-millionaire at the end of the thirties.
Harry claims his brother “grabbed me by the collar, tore my chain and he knocked me to the floor” during an argument about his “rude” wife Meghan.
“I landed on the dog’s bowl,” Harry added, saying he called his therapist after the one-sided collision. https://t.co/T0psS5tOem

Although cocaine made him feel “different”, the prince recalls, it didn’t make him particularly happier – but taking magic mushrooms in California while high on tequila had a deeper impact.
Harry recalled seeing a dustbin in the bathroom that seems to stare at him and grow a head, while a toilet also turned into a head and started talking to him – an event he described as “the experience of a lifetime”. He also asked the moon to change his life.
Two years later, he married Meghan Markle, now Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
Harry also revealed that he is a long-term cannabis addict and that he believes psychedelics helped him see that there is “another world where the red mist d[oesn’t] exist”.
Red mist appears to be Prince Harry’s way of discussing anger or violence, perhaps a coping mechanism developed through his use of a therapist. In the book, he describes seeing “the red mist” inside his brother Prince William during the incident where the heir physically put him in a bowl of dog food.
The effect of being able to see “another world” is said to have stuck with the prince after the drugs wore off, leaving him with a conviction that his other world is “as real and twice as beautiful” as the real one, which is ” not all that is”.
“Only the truth existed,” Harry opined.
“When someone who marries in, who should be a ‘support act’, steals the limelight, or does the job better than the person who was born to do this, upsets people, it changes the balance” Harry suggested https://t.co /A3KQGUfz6X
