Prince Harry accused his brother, Prince William, of shoving him to the floor during a heated argument over Harry’s marriage to Meghan Markle. According to a report in The Guardian on Thursdaywhich stated that it had obtained a copy of the memoirs of the little prince about a week before its publication date.
The physical assault, which is said to have happened at Harry’s cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace in 2019, is a string of revelations in the prince’s book “Spare”, which is due out on Tuesday.
The book has been awaited with dread by the royal family and is being awaited by millions of others on the long-running House of Windsor soap opera. In recent days, Harry has pulled out unsavory details of his rift with William and other family members to spark interest.
“Willie, I can’t talk to you when you’re like this,” Harry told his brother, handing him a glass of water, when William arrived at their cottage and said Meghan, an American-born actress, was in the Guardian article according to “difficult,” “rude,” and “abrasive”.
Harry reportedly wrote, “He put the water down, gave me another name, then came to me.” “It all happened very quickly. Very quickly. He grabbed me by the collar, tore off my necklace, and he threw me to the floor. I went down on the dog bowl, which exploded down my back, the pieces inside me.” Cut off. I lay there for a moment, astonished, then rose to my feet and asked him to get out.

William urged Harry to hit him back, according to the account, but he refused. William then told Harry, “You don’t need to tell Meg about this.”
Harry replied, “You mean you attacked me?”
“I didn’t attack you, Harold,” William insisted.
The report states that Harry wrote that his first telephone call after the altercation was to his therapist.
King Charles III’s sons call each other Willie and Harold, a delectable morsel amid an apparently lavish banquet of revelations in the book. The Guardian said the memoir details the rift between the brothers, which deepened after Harry and Meghan stepped down from royal duties and moved to Southern California.
The publisher, Penguin Random House, has tried to keep the book under tight wraps, restricting the content and sending it to bookstores just before its scheduled release. But the Guardian said it had received a copy about a week before publication, effectively pre-empting a rollout that included two televised interviews with Harry the following Sunday, on ITV in the UK and the CBS program in the United States”. 60 Minutes”.
New York-based Guardian reporter Martin Pengelly, who wrote the story, was told by former President Donald J. There has been a history of breaking news about books with tight security, including some books about Trump, often several days before their publication.
Mr. Pengeli did not give a detailed description of the book in his article. But he pointed out that Harry recalled a tense meeting with William and Charles after Prince Philip’s funeral in 2021, during which their father pleaded, “Please, boys, don’t make my final years a misery.”
Representatives for King Charles and Prince William declined to comment on the allegations Thursday, which came on the heels of several other allegations made by Harry and Meghan in a six-part Netflix documentary that aired last month.
Buckingham Palace has not commented on Harry’s claims in the documentary that he refused to shield Meghan from an onslaught of negative coverage by London’s tabloids – and in some cases, even journalists with damaging leaks fueled it.
Despite his litany of complaints, Harry has insisted he wants to reconcile with William and Charles. “I would like to get my father back; I would like to have my brother back,” he said in a clip of the interview with ITV. “He has shown absolutely no willingness to reconcile.”
On Tuesday, a person with ties to Buckingham Palace disputed that Harry had made the peace offer. The person requested anonymity to reveal personal information about the family. The brothers were last seen together after the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September, when they accompanied their wives for a public walk ahead of her funeral.
Any rapprochement seems unlikely in the wake of the allegations in “Spare”. The book’s title is a play on the phrase “heir and spare”, referring to Harry’s lesser position as a younger brother in a monarchy where succession is governed by primogeniture.
Early in the book, reports the Guardian, Harry recounts a story about how, when his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, gave birth to him, a delighted Charles told him, “Wonderful! Now You have given me an heir and a spare – I’m done.” does the article Don’t make it clear how or by whom the story was transmitted to Harry.
The public breakdown of Harry’s relationship with his family has resulted in a series of highly publicized set pieces. In March 2021, Harry and Meghan sat down with Oprah Winfrey for an interview in which Meghan, who is biracial, claimed a member of the royal family had expressed concern about her unborn child’s skin colour. The couple never identified the family member; Ms Winfrey said it was not the Queen or the Queen’s husband, Philip.
Meghan also told Ms Winfrey that she felt so isolated and emotionally devastated inside the palace that she once contemplated suicide.
The Guardian did not say in its report whether Harry’s book repeated allegations of racism in the royal family. The couple did not mention this in the Netflix documentary, and William said in 2021, “We are not a racist family.”
