Prince Harry’s military instructor ‘staggered’ by Spare claims
Prince Harry’s former Army instructor has been left “staggered” by the royal’s account of one of their training flights.
The Duke of Sussex wrote in his memoir Spare that former Sgt. Maj. Michael Booley deliberately stalled their Slingsby T67 Firefly propeller plane without warning, but he insisted that wasn’t the case because “every single aspect” of the trip would have been mapped out beforehand.
Michael said: “I am staggered by this. In shock even.”
In Spare, Prince Harry wrote: “I felt the left wing dip, a sickening feeling of disorder, of entropy, and then, after several seconds that felt like decades, he recovered the aircraft and levelled the wings.
“I stared at him. What in the absolute–? Was this an aborted suicide attempt? No, he said gently. This was the next stage in my training.”
