Prince Harry has revealed how we was mocked over his mother's death and taunted that she was pregnant with a “Muslim baby” during Army training.

The Duke of Sussex opens up on killing 25 Taliban insurgents while serving in Afghanistan in his memoir Spare, which was leaked earlier this week.

However, he also claims to have been abused by a woman in a headscarf during training on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall.

In the Spanish translation of his book, Harry says his combat training involved being kidnapped and tortured, including being kept awake for several days.

In an apparent reference to Princess Diana's partner Dodi Fayed, Harry says the woman – who was wearing a kufiya headscarf – made cruel taunts about his mother's death.

“She was talking about my mother,” he said in an extract quoted by the Daily Mail. “She said: 'Your mother was pregnant when she died', adding that the child was 'a Muslim baby'.”

Harry wrote that afterwards: “An instructor apologised for what they had said about my mother”.

The torture also included the prince being stripped naked and teased about the size of his manhood.

“A lot of the things they did to us were illegal under the Geneva convention, but that was the goal,” he added.

Harry claims that he turned to face his aggressor when she talked about his mother but did not reply, and she “left, angry”.

Someone then spat in his face before the captors “pointed at out limp c***s, and talked endlessly about how small they were”, Harry added.

He says he was then taken to another room and told the exercise was over.

Harry says the exercise began when a group in black balaclavas appeared on Bodmin Moor, and that he initially feared he was being targeted by the IRA, who killed his relative Lord Mountbatten.

He was taken to some buildings with several of his comrades where they were denied sleep for three days, stripped naked, and forced to remain in uncomfortable positions.
