Prince Harry says William ‘attacked’ him & left him knocked to the floor after calling Meg ‘difficult’ in bombshell book
PRINCE Harry claims his brother “knocked him to the floor” during an argument about Meghan Markle.
In sensational allegations set to rock the Royal Family, Harry says in his upcoming book Spare that The Prince of Wales branded Meghan “rude” and “difficult” during a row.
Harry alleges William “grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and … knocked me to the floor” in an extract of the book reported by the Guardian.
The Duke of Sussex, 38, claims he was left with a visible injury to his back following the argument in 2019 at Nottingham Cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace, where he was living at the time.
Harry says William was already “piping hot” when he arrived wanting to talk about their deteriorating relationship.
According to Harry, it turned into a shouting match as William complained about his wife Meghan, calling her “rude” and “abrasive”.
Harry accused his brother of repeating the press narrative before William insisted he was trying to help.
The Duke of Sussex responded: “Are you serious? Help me? Sorry – is that what you call this? Helping me?”
Harry claims 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”.
Harry claims: “It all happened so 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.”
He says William told him to hit him back but he refused, and so his brother left “looking regretful, and apologised”.
William then told his brother not to tell Meghan about the confrontation, according to Harry.
Harry says he replied: “You mean that you attacked me?”, to which he claims William responded: “I didn’t attack you, Harold.”
Harry said he did not immediately tell his wife until she noticed “scrapes and bruises” on his back.
The extract of Harry’s book has been published by the Guardian. It is unclear how they obtained an early copy.
It comes after The Sun revealed that the book will take his war with brother William, 40, to a new level.
Harry’s biography Spare — expected to reveal more than his Netflix series — complains about him playing second fiddle.
The explosive book — called Spare and due to be published on January 10 — is set to go further than his £80million Netflix docuseries and give a detailed blow-by-blow account of their falling out.
