– Prince Harry’s memoir reveals a complicated relationship with his brother, Prince William, including a physical altercation they had about Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle.
– The rift between the brothers began shortly after their mother, Princess Diana, died in 1997, with Harry revealing they lived separate lives and William told him to pretend they didn’t know each other.
– While they have come together for some family and formal gatherings, such as their wedding days, Prince Philip’s funeral, and the funeral of their grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, their relationship remains strained.
Prince Harry’s new memoir “Spare” has revealed the reality of his relationship with his brother Prince William, which has been much more complicated than previously thought. The book includes shocking details about an alleged physical altercation between the two brothers over Harry’s wife Meghan Markle. In interviews, Harry has spoken more about their growing rift, which is said to have begun shortly after the death of their mother, Princess Diana, in 1997.
During Harry’s interview with Anderson Cooper on “60 Minutes,” he explained that after his mother died, he and William essentially lived separate lives. William even told Harry to pretend they didn’t know each other when they started attending the same school, which Harry found hurtful and confusing. However, the two have come together for certain family events, such as their respective weddings and the funerals of their grandparents.
Despite these occasional reunions, tension between the brothers appears to have continued, with a palace insider reporting that they had not communicated prior to their father’s coronation in May. While some have speculated that this could be due to ongoing disagreements, it’s difficult to say for sure as representatives for both Harry and William declined to comment.
The reveal of the complicated relationship between the two brothers is just one of the many bombshells that Harry’s memoir includes. While many have been eager to learn more about the inner workings of the royal family, the book is also raising important questions about the impact of trauma and grief on individuals and families. It remains to be seen what the long-term implications of Harry and William’s rift will be, but it’s clear that it’s a much more complex situation than many initially thought.
