In the latest rumble from the Royal Family saga, Prince Harry has now claimed that his brother William physically attacked him during an argument over the Duke of Sussex’s marriage to Meghan Markle.
These allegations were made by Prince Harry in his autobiography Spare, which is due to be released on 10 January.
According to a leaked extract from the book to the Guardian newspaper, this alleged row between the brothers took place at Harry’s London home back in 2019.
Prince Harry claimed that this confrontation left him with a visible injury to his back, as he claimed that William had grabbed him by the collar, ripping off his necklace and knocking him to the ground.
Harry had also added that while he did not immediately inform his wife about this alleged incident, she did notice “scrapes and bruises” on his back.
Describing the incident as “extraordinary”, the Guardian newspaper have claimed that it is “one of many in Spare”, which is available to buy next week.
Prince Harry makes further claims, that William had used words like “difficult”, “rude” and “abrasive” to describe his wife Meghan.
Harry also said that these comments echoed “the press narrative” about his wife.
The Duke of Sussex also added that William wanted to discuss “the whole rolling catastrophe” of their relationship and struggles with the press.
The article also claims that William was already “piping hot” by the time he arrived at Nottingham Cottage where Harry was living.
“After William complained about Meghan, Harry writes, Harry told him he was repeating the press narrative and that he expected better,” The Guardian states.
“But William, Harry says, was not being rational, leading to the two men shouting over each other”.
“Harry then accused his brother of acting like an heir, unable to understand why his younger brother was not content to be a spare”.
“came at me”
After exchanging several insults, Harry then dismissed William’s claim that he was only trying to help, prompting William to step forward towards him, scaring the younger brother.
“(William) called me another name, then came at me. It all happened so fast. So very fast. He grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and he knocked me to the floor. I landed on the dog’s bowl, which cracked under my back, the pieces cutting into me. I lay there for a moment, dazed, then got to my feet and told him to get out”, Harry wrote.
Harry also claimed that William urged him to hit him back, but he refused. William allegedly apologised for this.
The Duke of Sussex also made further claims that William asked him to not to tell Meghan about this alleged altercation.
It is no secret that the pair have been at loggerheads for a few years now. This comes after Harry and Meghan released a tell all documentary to Netflix before Christmas. See here.
