According to The Guardian, which got a copy of the eagerly awaited book, Prince William is expected to say in his upcoming autobiography that he seized his younger brother Harry and knocked him to the ground after a furious argument over Meghan Markle.
According to reports, the dispute at Harry’s London residence in 2019 got worse after William called the wife of the younger prince “difficult,” “rude,” and “aggressive.” Harry eventually retreated into the kitchen after the two began trading insults because he felt threatened. William went after him.
Harry gave his brother a drink of water and then remarked, “Willy, I can’t speak to you when you’re like this.”
According to Harry, the Prince of Wales “laid down the water, called me another name, then came at me,” as quoted by The Guardian. Everything happened very quickly. That quickly.
He yanked me by the collar, ripped off my necklace, and threw me to the ground. I landed on the dog’s bowl, which broke beneath me and sliced me with its bits. I lay there for a bit, confused, then stood up and urged him to leave.
Harry goes on to say that William attempted to provoke Harry into retaliating, but when Harry refused, William allegedly fled the room. After some while, he reappeared “looking sorry and apologized.”
William reportedly said you don’t need to inform Meg about this before turning to walk away.
You mean to assault me, right? He writes that Harry answered back.
“Harold, I didn’t attack you.”
Harry then dialed his therapist on his own.
Harry said the attack left him with “scrapes and bruises” on his back, which Markle later observed. The Duke of Sussex said his wife was “terribly sad,” not shocked.
William had visited Harry, who was at the time residing in Nottingham Cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace, to discuss “the whole rolling calamity” of his relationship with the Suits actor. But according to Harry, the Prince of Wales arrived “piping hot.”
The Sussexes, who got married in 2018, are unlikely to melt the frigid relations between them and the senior royals as a result of the detailed interaction, one of many described in Spare, according to The Guardian.
A source last week told The Sunday Times that Harry almost slams his brother in the book. The insider stated, “I personally can’t see how Harry and William can get back together after this.”
The treatment of King Charles, Harry’s father, is anticipated to be lighthearted throughout the book. The monarch is depicted as exhausted as he watches over his resentful sons following Prince Phillip’s funeral in an article from The Guardian.
Harry recalled his father saying, “Please, boys.” “Please don’t make my last years miserable.”
But Harry’s continuous press tour has made his desire to make amends with his family a recurrent topic. “I want my father to come home. Harry stated to the ITV network in a clip from an interview that will show on Sunday night, “I would like to have my brother back.”
However, the estranged royal says in a different excerpt from a separate interview with CBS’ 60 Minutes, “There arrives a time when silence is betrayal.”
As of Wednesday, Buckingham Palace had not officially reacted to Harry’s remarks.
On January 10, Spare, Harry’s memoir, will be available for purchase.
