Duke of Sussex Harry says his brother Prince William physically attacked him during a ferocious argument, one of many startling allegations in an unreleased new memoir.
In the ghostwritten memoir, titled “Spare,” Harry said that his brother Prince William lashed out during a furious argument over the siblings' deteriorating relationship. Harry recounts a 2019 argument at his Kensington Palace home, in which he says William grabbed his brother by the collar and ripped his necklace before knocking him down.
“I landed on the dog’s bowl, which cracked under my back, the pieces cutting into me,” Harry says in the passage, first reported by The Guardian. Harry says he had scrapes and bruises as a result of the tussle, for which William later apologized.
The allegation is one of a slew in a book that exposes painful, intimate details about the lives of Harry and other members of the royal family. The memoir is the latest in a string of public revelations and accusations by Harry and Meghan that have shaken Britain’s royal family.
Neither Buckingham Palace, which represents King Charles III, nor William’s Kensington Palace office has commented on the allegations.
The book is set to be released on January 10 2023 in 16 different languages.
