21 Most Wonderful Mother-in-Law Quotes to Bring a Smile to Her Face

Circumcision and mother’s hair «for conception». Prince Harry and bouts of cringe due to his scandalous book — The Secret of the Firm

Prince Harry’s memoirs entitled «Spare», the publication of which is scheduled for January 10, have already scattered into quotes. The fact is that several copies of the book ended up on the counter of a Spanish store before the official release and fell into the hands of British journalists. What the grandson of the late Elizabeth II did not tell about: about his life, relations with his brother and the royal family. From some revelations goosebumps crawl, from others — you involuntarily experience Spanish shame, you catch bouts of cringe. I didn’t want to know about some intimate details at all (and how can I forget about them now?). «The Secret» collected the most high-profile statements of the prince, which his granny would definitely not appreciate.

Reserve heir

“Prince William was the heir and I was the alternate,” Prince Harry admitted. This nickname, according to his memoirs, was used by his father, now King Charles III, and Princess Diana, and his late grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh … and even Elizabeth II. According to Harry, he was always in the shadow of his brother and believed that he was «brought into this world in case something goes wrong. »

When Harry was 20 years old, he learned what Charles III said to Princess Diana on his birthday: “Wonderful! You gave me an heir and one extra — your mission is completed.

Harry was aware that the words might have been a joke, but remarked, «Too many true words said in jest.»

Sex with an older lady and drugs

From losing his virginity at the age of 17 in a field behind a busy pub to dabble in cocaine and magic mushrooms, Prince Harry didn’t hold back in his revelations. The youngest son of the British monarch seemed to have visited a psychologist on a live talk show.

According to the prince, he had a sexual experience with an «old lady» who «had a great love for horses.» And this moment turned out to be humiliating for him, because the woman treated him like a young stallion.

“I got on top of her, after that she slapped me on the ass and told me to leave. My main mistake was the choice of location — it happened in a field behind a busy pub. Undoubtedly, someone saw us, ”said the prince.

Harry frankly admitted to using drugs (we condemn this, drugs are evil). He used cocaine, weed and hallucinogenic mushrooms. Illicit drugs did not bring him joy: «It was not very fun and did not give me much happiness.»

In January 2016, Harry tried hallucinogenic mushrooms for the first time at a party with actress Courteney Cox and, as expected, got glitches. It seemed to the prince that the trash can in the bathroom was looking at him, and the toilet was talking.


The son of the British king also told about his service in Afghanistan. According to Harry, he killed 25 people — presumably the Taliban, militants of the Taliban banned in the Russian Federation. The prince actively kept notes in a diary, where he entered information about each enemy hit.

“Naturally I would prefer this figure not to be on my military resume or in my head, but I would also prefer to live in a world without the Taliban, in a world without war,” Harry commented.

True, experts believe that these revelations may have negative consequences for the prince: such a confession may provoke radicals. And now Harry is at risk of becoming a target for terrorists who want revenge.

About the Nazi party costume

The Nazi uniform worn by Prince Harry to a costume party in 2005 caused a scandal. However, the prince himself believes that he should not have been alone responsible for what he had done. According to Harry, on the eve of the event, he consulted with William and Kate Middleton about his image.

The Duke of Sussex couldn’t choose between two options, and it was the couple who allegedly advised him to opt for a Nazi costume with a swastika headband.

Relationship with stepmother

In his memoirs, Harry recalled how his father openly began dating Camilla Parker-Bowles (now queen consort). The sons allegedly begged Prince Charles (now King Charles III) not to marry his beloved and promised that they would not interfere with their relationship.

“Willie and I promised my father that we would welcome Camilla into the family. The only thing we asked in return was that he not marry her,” Harry recalled.

Charles was married to Princess Diana for 15 years. In 1992, the couple separated, and in August 1997, Diana died in a car accident. In 2005, Charles married Camilla. Kate made Meghan Markle cry Then Megan told a lot of interesting and shocking facts about life in the royal family and said that on the eve of the wedding, Kate Middleton brought her to tears. However, the reasons were not reported.

According to Harry, the first quarrel between the duchesses broke out when they discussed the wedding rehearsal. Allegedly, Kate forgot about some minor aspect, and Megan jokingly stated that William’s wife had a «childish brain.» The fact is that the Duchess of Cambridge (now the Princess of Wales) gave birth to Prince Louis on April 23, 2018, 28 days before the wedding of Harry and Meghan at Windsor Castle. Of course, Kate was offended by the remark.

Four days before the wedding, Kate’s daughter Princess Charlotte tried on a bridesmaid dress. Alas, the outfit was too big. Harry claims that Kate asked to completely redo the dress, and Meghan objected: they say that her tailor can adjust the dress to the girl’s figure. In his memoirs, Harry wrote that he returned home that day to find Meghan sobbing on the floor. He also added that Kate came the next day with flowers and a card to apologize.

After their honeymoon, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle met with Prince William and Kate Middleton for a tea party at Kensington Palace. But this meeting turned into a conflict. Harry claims that Kate was reminded of her «baby brain» comment.

“You must have been talking about my hormones. But we are not close enough for you to make such remarks to me, ”Prince Kate Middleton was quoted as saying.

According to Harry, his wife looked confused. Megan tried to explain, but William called her «rude» and noted that people in Britain do not behave like that.

Fight with Prince William

Once a verbal altercation between the brothers turned into a fight. William, according to his brother, came to Harry’s house to discuss the tense relationship between them. At the same time, the heir to the British throne again called Meghan Markle «rude», «heavy» and «irritable». What Harry said to him is not reported, but probably something very unpleasant. How else to explain why William attacked his brother with his fists.

“He grabbed me by the collar, breaking the chain, and threw me to the floor,” the Duke of Sussex shared his memory.

As a result, Prince Harry fell on a dog bowl, which cracked under his back, and the pieces pierced his skin. Harry recalled lying there for a while, stunned, and then got to his feet and told his older brother to get out. William asked not to tell Megan about the incident, but the duchess noticed signs of a fight and found out about everything.

Mother’s hair helped to conceive a child

If you have been dreaming of a child for a long time, but pregnancy still does not occur, perhaps you need not a reproductive specialist, but a magical talisman (do you understand that we are joking?). For Prince Harry, a box of his late mother’s hair has become such a «talisman for good luck». He kept it on his bedside table — and seriously believed that it was she who helped him and Megan conceive their first child.

According to Harry, Meghan took two home pregnancy tests in the bathroom of the Nottingham Cottage where they lived in 2018. True, Harry did not wait for the result and fell asleep. When he woke up, he found that Megan had placed the tests on her bedside table. According to Harry, he «only kept a few things» on his nightstand, including «a blue box of his mother’s hair». Harry immediately thought of his talisman when he saw the pregnancy tests. The couple soon discovered that the tests were positive. At that moment, the first thing Harry did was thank his late mother.

Conversation with the witch

However, the situation with Megan’s pregnancy is not the only time when Harry believed in the power of the supernatural. The prince remembered how his unending grief for his dead mother had once led him to a woman who called herself a sorceress. She allegedly had the gift to make contact with the other world and gave Harry a message from the deceased Princess Diana.

“Your mother says that you are living a life that she herself could not live. You are living the life she wanted for you,” the sorceress told the prince.

He was circumcised and his dignity froze

If you’ve ever wondered if Prince Harry and Prince William were circumcised, the answer is yes. We didn’t want to know about it, but who asked us? The Duke of Sussex considered it necessary to tell about this fact from his biography. Harry recalled how, during a charity expedition to the Arctic, he got frostbite on his ears, cheeks, and also his genitals, and also noted that the circumcision done to him as a child did not help in any way.

“Mom forbade it, everyone said, and while it’s absolutely true that you’re much more likely to get penile frostbite if you’re not circumcised, those stories were all lies. I was circumcised as a child,” wrote Harry.

Attempted to conduct his own investigation into the death of his mother

Prince Harry did not believe that Princess Diana really died in a car accident, and even more so that the cause of the accident was a banal coincidence.

At the age of 20, he demanded a police report on the incident and the latest photographs of his mother to verify that she had indeed been in that car and had been injured. At the age of 23, he visited Paris for the first time and repeated the last route of Princess Diana by car. He drove at the same speed through the tunnel to see if the driver really could lose control and get into a fatal accident.

“Even if the driver had been drunk, he would have had no problem driving through such a short tunnel. If the paparazzi had not followed him and blinded him. Why did these paparazzi get off lightly? Why weren’t they in jail? Who sent them? And why didn’t these people go to jail too?” Prince Harry wrote.

According to the prince, he and his brother wanted to reopen the investigation into Diana’s death, but they were dissuaded.

So what does the royal family think about this?

Officially, the royal family remains silent and does not comment on the actions of the verbiage prince. But a source close to the court said that Harry had already been removed from the script for the coronation of Charles III, which is scheduled for May 6, 2023.

“Breaking tradition, Charles will forego royal dukes kneeling and paying homage to the monarch. Only William will play this role,” commented the royal expert.

Foreign media also write that Prince William is «burning with anger» and at the same time very upset by the revelations of his younger brother, which will soon be seen in all its glory by the whole world. According to friends of the Prince of Wales, he does not plan to take revenge on Harry and give any comments.

Three ways to inspire teamwork

Still not sure how to inspire your team? Providing inspiration isn’t always as easy as quoting a motivational adage. In fact, this should be used in various ways. One of the most effective methods of motivating a team is to provide it with the means and tools it needs to succeed. And Asana can help with that. Below are three ways to inspire teamwork.

Conducting virtual team building exercises

Team building exercises are not only a great way to increase communication and trust within a team, but also a fun break for employees to help boost their morale. But how exactly do you organize team building events with telecommuting software? A study conducted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology showed that the more people who participate in a meeting, the lower the effectiveness of the interaction. That is, while it is sometimes helpful to get the whole company together to make some general announcements, team building events are most effective when they are held in small groups.

Team building does not have to be a complex process. The exercise can be no more difficult than asking a few questions to remove the psychological barrier in the team. In addition, creativity can be realized by organizing various quizzes and educational activities at the dinner table with the participation of small groups of four to five people.

Collaborate with Project Management Tool

There is nothing more important than staying in touch with colleagues, whether your entire team is in the same office or scattered around the world. Project management software helps ensure that everyone has a common understanding of the situation, regardless of the time zone. With such a wide variety of tools available, it can be difficult to know which path to productivity is the most effective.

According to Asana’s research called «Work Structure Index», 60% of work time is spent organizing work. How much time was wasted on everyday searches for documents and constant switching between applications! That’s why it’s so important to choose the right tools with a wide range of features to increase your productivity.

Visualize work with the team calendar

Keep track of your work schedule by creating a team calendar to track due dates and keep upcoming projects and deadlines in check. The calendar will not only help your team plan and manage projects in a shared space, but will also be useful for those who find it easier to understand the task in a visual representation than in the form of a simple list.
