According to The Guardian, in 2019, Prince Harry accused his brother William of beating him during an altercation with the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan. Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, allegedly claims Prince William, Prince of Wales, knocked him to the floor during the altercation, according to an advance copy of Harry’s highly awaited memoir, Spare, seen by a UK publication.
The heir to the British monarchy, William, allegedly called Meghan “difficult,” “rude,” and “aggressive” in a conversation between the two brothers before the alleged altercation occurred, as reported by The Guardian. William “grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and… knocked me to the floor,” as reported by The Guardian.
CNN has asked Penguin Random House to send them a copy of the book early. When asked for comment by CNN, Kensington Palace, Buckingham Palace, and a representative for the Sussexes all declined. The purported fight between the brothers is the main emphasis of the Guardian piece, although the book as a whole is called exceptional.
According to Harry’s account, William visited him and Meghan at their former residence, Nottingham Cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace, to discuss “the whole rolling calamity” of their relationship and issues with the press. According to The Guardian, Harry claims that William attacked him after he had offered him water in an effort to defuse their heated exchange.
“He put down the water, called me another name, and then came at me,” Harry is quoted as saying in the report. Everything moved so quickly. Incredibly rapid. He snatched me up by the collar, yanked my necklace free of its clasp, and knocked me to the ground. The dog’s bowl broke when I landed on it, and the shards scratched my back.
After lying there for a few minutes in a haze, I got to my feet and urged him to leave. As the article reports, Harry admits in the book that William urged him to respond with violence, but he resisted the desire. According to the book and the Guardian report, William fled but came back “looking sorry” and apologized.
The January 10th release date for Spare has been set. The Guardian also quotes Harry talking about how he came back to the UK for the first time after stepping down as a senior royal in April 2021 to attend the funeral of Prince Philip. It was the first time the 38-year-old duke had seen his father, now King Charles III, and William since he and Meghan had spoken to Oprah Winfrey for their shocking interview.
According to the Guardian piece, Charles begged his sons not to “make my final years a misery,” and Harry’s account shows tensions with William remained high. According to the article, the brothers call each other “Willy” and “Harold.” In upcoming television interviews, Prince Harry is anticipated to provide more context for the feud he’s been having with the rest of the royal family.
Michael Strahan, co-host of “Good Morning America,” teased the upcoming complete interview with the royal by saying that Harry calls William his “arch-nemesis” in the book. The interview will air on Monday. Strahan says, “There’s a quote in this book where you refer to your brother as your ‘loving brother and arch-nemesis,'” which is an excerpt from the future interview.
Tough talk. Explanation needed for the statement. When asked if he agrees, Harry nods and then says, “There’s always been this competitiveness between us, bizarrely.” The “heir/spare” dynamic is one that, in my opinion, this always plays into. After finishing Prince Harry’s book, Strahan told his “Good Morning America” co-hosts that he thinks readers would be “amazed at how open he is” and that the book will “drop a lot of jaws.”
Two further interviews, with Anderson Cooper of CBS’s “60 Minutes” and Tom Bradby of British network ITV, will air on Sunday as well. A new sneak peek from the ITV interview aired on Thursday, and in it, Harry says he “still believes in the monarchy,” but he adds, “I don’t know” when asked if he plans to play a role in the future of the monarchy.
When asked if he plans to return with his family to the UK in May for his father’s coronation, Harry again refused to be specific. Many things can occur between now and then, Harry adds in the video. But it’s never closed if you want to come in. The initiative now lies with them. I sincerely hope they are willing to sit down and talk about everything that needs to be discussed.
In other parts of the promotional video lasting exactly one minute, Harry repeats his earlier allegations that the British royal family is behind the planting of unfavorable media headlines. After Bradby suggests that some people would accuse him of prying into the family’s private life without their consent.
Harry retorts, “That would be the accusation from the individuals that don’t understand or don’t want to believe that my family has been briefing the press. Not speaking up won’t make things better, Prince Harry warns. There has been a lot of attention on the Duchess of Sussex since Harry and she tied the knot in 2018.
Harry recently blamed the media for Meghan’s miscarriage and subsequent suicidal thoughts in a Netflix documentary. The pair claimed that the constant scrutiny from the press was the final straw that convinced them to leave their positions in the Royal family. In the six-part documentary, Harry says he didn’t handle Meghan’s mental health crisis “very well.”
“I knew she was having a hard time; we were both having a hard time, but I never thought it would come to that stage. Harry said, “I felt upset and ashamed that it had gotten to that point, and I dealt with it as institutional Harry rather than husband Harry.” Meghan said that she wanted to get help but was prevented from doing so out of fear for the institution’s reputation.
She did not say who she blames for this. In her explosive 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey, she made very similar sentiments.
