He asserts that the prince william “thrown him to the ground” during an argument in London in 2019. In his memoir The Alternateto be published on Tuesday, January 10, but extracts of which leaked to the press, the prince harry recounts another altercation, which occurred on April 17, 2021. After the funeral of Prince Philip, the Duke of Sussex, his brother and King Charles had indeed organized a private meeting, in order to ease tensions around the “Megxit”. Talks that did not go as planned.
In video, “Silence is betrayal”, says Prince Harry in an interview
the Sun indeed unveiled, on Saturday January 7, an extract from the book, in which the husband of Meghan Markle tells in detail the estrangement that occurred that day. Everything would have started in the gardens of Frogmore Cottage, where the trio would have evoked, during a walk, the interview granted by the Sussexes to Oprah Winfrey. The conversation would then have turned sour.
“He grabbed my t-shirt”
Prince William, “really furious”, would have launched to his brother: “You never came to talk to us about it. You never came to talk to me about it.” His younger brother would have retorted that the terms of their agreement on the “Megxit” had not been respected. What the Prince of Wales would have advised him to report to Elizabeth II.
“I greeted them, disgusted, but he threw himself on me and grabbed me by the t-shirt,” recalls Prince Harry. Prince William reportedly exclaimed, “Listen to me, Harold, listen! I love you, I want you to be happy!” To which the husband of Meghan Markle would have replied: “I love you too … but your stubbornness is extraordinary!”
A “secret code”
The Duke of Sussex is said to have cleared, but the Prince of Wales is said to have grabbed his t-shirt again. “Harold, you have to listen to me! reportedly added Prince William. I just want you to be happy, Harold. I swear it on my mother’s life.” The trio would then have frozen. According to Prince Harry, this sentence is indeed symbolic in the eyes of the two brothers. “He had just used the secret code, the universal password, explained the duke. Ever since we were little, these words were only meant to be used in times of extreme crisis.”
An “anxious and sad” prince
A conflict that would have left them with a bitter taste. “Willy was not quite ready to accept defeat,” Prince Harry wrote. After their estrangement, prince William would have slipped to him: “All this makes me sick, and I swear to you on the life of mom that I want you to be happy.” To which Prince Harry reportedly replied: “I really don’t think that’s the case.” The heir to the throne, however, would have hugged his younger brother, before telling him again that he loved him.
Since then, the Prince of Wales has still not found serenity. A relative of Prince William has indeed entrusted to the Sunday Timesthis Sunday, January 8, that the heir to the throne was “anxious and sad” given the latest revelations from Prince Harry. “He focuses on his wife and children, concluded the witness. He must focus on them and watch over the rest of the royal family. On the surface, he deals with it all so well that it burns him inside.” Two days before the official release of Substitutethe Prince of Wales is certainly not at the end of his troubles.
