Prince Harry has “dueled” with Prince William and King Charles III over his decision to step down from the royal family after Prince Phillip’s funeral in April 2021.
In this jaw-dropping memoir, The Spare, Harry reflects on a ‘secret meeting’ in Frogmore Gardens between the three men as they try to mend their broken relationship.
However, after having a productive conversation, the two brothers started to “heat up”, so the father had to intervene.
According to the Duke of Sussex, the king asked his sons to “don’t [his] The last few years have been painful,” they said over and over again.
At one point, the Prince of Wales swore on his late mother’s life that he really wanted his brother to be happy – which didn’t sit well with Harry.
The comment shocked him, as the brothers only uttered those three words “in times of great crisis.”
In fact, Harry said that he “didn’t believe” or “completely believed” that William was being honest, saying that “not even these holy words can set us free.”
Harry walked out of the meeting believing that if his family didn’t know why he had left his life as king, they probably “never” knew him.
The ex-king did not shy away from revealing the intimate details of the siblings; complicated relationship – from calling William her “archnemesis” to revealing an alleged physical altercation between them for Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle.
Harry said William, 40, “attacked” Markle in 2019 at Kensington Palace after calling her “difficult”, “rude” and “abrasive”.
“He was so fast. So, so fast. He grabbed me by the collar, pulled my chain and knocked me to the floor,” Harry recalled in his memoir, which hits US shelves on January 10.
Although William apologized at the time, he was furious that he was airing his brother’s dirty laundry.
Palace insiders told Vanity Fair on Thursday that there is a “huge trust issue” between the brothers, as William fears Harry will leak all their conversations to the press.
“He has no comment or reaction yet,” another source said ahead of the book’s release. “His plan is to eliminate all of this. At the end of the day, he will still be the Prince of Wales and focus on that.’
Buckingham Palace echoed that sentiment, telling Page 6 that the royal family would not comment on any of the allegations made in the film “The Spare.”
