Prince Harry says his brother, William, assaulted him physically during an argument in 2019.
According to The Guardian, Prince Harry’s new memoir, Spare, contains the passage describing where his brother William (the future King of England) knocked him to the floor.
During a conversation between the two, William called Meghan,
difficult, rude and abrasive.”
The Guardian says William arrived at Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace to discuss,
‘the whole rolling catastrophe’ of their relationship and struggles with the press.”
Harry alleges that William attacked him after he accused his brother of repeating the press narrative before William insisted he was just trying to help.
Are you serious? Help me? Sorry – is that what you call this? Helping me?”
Harry says he then poured William a glass of water and said,
Willy, I can’t speak to you when you’re like this.”
He then says his brother called him “another name” and 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 says William told him to hit back, but he refused.
William left and returned later,
William told his brother not to tell Meghan about the confrontation.
You mean that you attacked me..?”
I didn’t attack you, Harold.”
Harry says he initially told his therapist about the fight, not his wife, saying he later told Meghan about the argument after she noticed his he had “scrapes and bruises” on his back.
In the new Netflix documentary, Harry blames the media for the stress put on Meghan, which lead to her having a miscarriage and suffering suicidal thoughts.
The couple said the unrelenting media coverage led them to quit working as members of the Royal family.
Spare is out next week on January 10.
Meanwhile, Spare accidentally went on sale in Spain.
The MailOnline said it had managed to obtain copies of the book in Spain, where it’s titled En La Sombra, meaning, ‘In the Shadow.’
A shop assistant told the Mail,
We just received this today. It was the only new book. There was no indication that we could not put it on sale until a certain date so we put it on sale today.”
The Daily Mail reports that the $20 million Penguin Random House deal will need to sell 1.7 million copies to pay off.
