Prince Harry has been linked to Princess Diana’s ex-lover, James Hewitt, for several years. There are rumors that the Duke of Sussex’s real dad is Hewitt and not Prince Charles.

But on the online forum site Quora, one royal fan claimed that Prince Harry couldn’t have been Hewitt’s son. After all, Princess Diana was once threatened by the royal family regarding her status if they found out that Prince Harry isn’t the real son of the future king.

Graham Short, a musician, writer, and entertainer of sorts, said that Princess Diana and Hewitt had an affair two years before Prince Harry was born. But prior to the Duke of Sussex’s birth, the Princess of Wales was already faithful to her husband.

Marla Lynn, a royal fan, said that rumors about Prince Harry and Hewitt’s connection will most likely never die down because the public needs some kind of excitement. However, majority of the stories regarding the members of the royal family are fabricated.

“Prince Harry is the biological son of Prince Charles and carries the red hair of the Spencer family, although Princess Diana was a blond. Prince Harry has the characteristic close eyes which stem from Queen Mary, wife of George V,” she said.

James Gracie, a self-employed individual, shared the same thoughts with Lynn. He said that some people are totally bonkers and they try to see a conspiracy in everything. But unlike Short, Gracie said that Princess Diana and Hewitt first met each other after Prince Harry was born. And as such, he couldn’t have possibly been the royal’s father.

Still, there is no denying the fact that Prince Harry and Hewitt share some similarities with each other. But even Hewitt himself has denied that he is the dad of Meghan Markle’s husband. But growing up, the two men seem to have forged a close relationship, and Prince Harry used to call Hewitt uncle.
