Prince Harry reportedly claims his brother William left him with visible injuries in a argument over Meghan, according to a leaked extract of The Duke of Sussex’s highly anticipated book Spare.
The Guardian was able to obtain a copy of Harry’s autobiography a few days before its release.
The alleged altercation took place at his London home in 2019 where Harry alleges Prince William called Meghan “difficult”, “rude” and “abrasive”. Harry then reportedly responded that his elder brother was “parrot[ing of] the press narrative” of his wife, Meghan Markle.
Prince Harry claims the confrontation escalated after this with the Prince of Wales grabbing him by the collar and ripping his necklace before being knocked to the floor.
Harry writes “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.”
Before leaving, Harry says his brother apologised and told him not to tell Meghan about the argument.
“You mean that you attacked me?”
“I didn’t attack you, Harold.”
Harry says Meghan was “terribly sad” when he told her of the attack after she noticed “scrapes and bruises” on his back.
The surge in shocking accusations comes from Prince Harry’s memoir, ‘Spare’ scheduled to be released 10 Jan.
In a trailer released today for his interview with Tom Bradby, Prince Harry said “the ball is in their court” in regards to him appearing at his father’s coronation this May. The full interview will be on ITV1 on January 8 prior to his book’s publication.
Another exclusive interview will air next Sunday with Prince Harry on CBS’ 60 minutes programme.
