Prince Harry's Autobiography Reveals Prince William Once "Knocked Him to the Floor"
During a confrontation regarding Meghan Markle.
According to The Guardian, which obtained a copy of the book ahead of its publication date, Harry opens up about an argument with William which occurred back in 2019. The book apparently states that William described Markle as “difficult,” “rude” and “abrasive,” leading the argument to escalate.
Harry then writes that William “set down [his] 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.”
The memoir then states that William encouraged Harry not to tell Markle about the incident, saying “You don’t need to tell Meg about this.” According to the publication, Harry kept the situation from his wife until she noticed the visible “scrapes and bruises” on his back.
The book, titled Spare, references an old royal saying which dictates that the first-born son is an “heir” to royal titles and power, while the second-born son is a “spare,” only of use if anything were to happen to the first-born. According to the BBC, both Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace won’t be commenting on the matter. Unsurprisingly.
Spare is set to be published next week, so stay tuned for more details.
