Prince William allegedly physically assaulted Prince Harry after argument
Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir, Spare, reveals that his brother Prince William assaulted him after a heated argument about their sibling rivalry over Harry’s marriage to Meghan Markle. The book is scheduled for release on January 10.
According to reports from The Guardian, Prince Harry recalled that during their argument, William had branded Meghan Markle “difficult,” “rude,” and “abrasive.” A “parrot[ing] of the press narrative” about Meghan Markle, according to Prince Harry. Eventually, Prince Harry says, Prince William “grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and … knocked me to the floor”, as the confrontation between the two brothers escalated.
“He set down the water, 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,” Prince Harry writes in his memoir, as quoted by The Guardian.
Prince Harry claims the incident also left a visible injury on his back. There has been tension between members of the royal family and Prince Harry, and next week will see the international release of the memoir “Spare.”
In the book, Harry also reveals that Meghan Markle discovered “scrapes and bruises” on his back without him telling her about the incident.
After the argument, Meghan was “terribly sad,” according to Prince Harry.
