Prince Harry talks about the alleged physical assault by Prince William in his new book
Prince Harry’s new book, Spare is set to release next year and it is already making headlines as an altercation that has been documented in the book was made public. In the book, Prince Harry talks about the incident which led to visible injuries on his face. According to the book, this altercation occurred in 2019 at Prince Harry’s London home where Prince Willian had come to discuss their relationship. William described Meghan Markle as “difficult”, “rude” and “abrasive” during the conversation, and when Harry argued the confrontation escalated to the point where he was pushed to the floor.
“[William] 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,” Harry wrote in Spare.
He also claimed that William urged him to fight back but he refused to do so. Harry also says he informed Markle about the attack after she saw the “scrapes and bruises” on his back. However, even after seeing the bruises, he said Markle “wasn’t that surprised, and wasn’t all that angry.”
