There is no question that the royal family has had its ups and downs in recent years, primarily due to Harry and Meghan’s exit from royal life and the bombshell accusations that came with it. Even though Harry attended his father’s coronation, the future of the Sussexes’ relationship with their fellow royals is seriously in doubt.
Harry and Meghan lashed out at other royals in interviews, their Netflix series, and, of course, through the Duke’s book, which was released earlier this year. While that was one thing, the couple additionally decided to give their children royal titles in March.
furious with his son when the accusations against him – and especially his wife, Queen Camilla – were laid out by Harry. But according to a royal expert, Charles has only himself to blame – and he apparently made one “terrible mistake” that changed everything.
The feud between the royals and Harry and Meghan reached its peak when Harry released his book, Spare, earlier this year. The Duke lashed out at almost every one of his senior royal family members, referring to his stepmother Camilla as a “wicked stepmother” and even giving a detailed insight into one of the biggest fights of his life.
It happened in 2019 at his London home, where Harry wrote that he and William had a physical confrontation. The Duke claimed William had called his wife, Meghan, “abrasive,” “rude,” and “difficult,” something Harry called “parrot the press narrative.”
It escalated, and Harry described how William “grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and … knocked me to the floor.”
“He set down the water, 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.
The Duke then described how William urged him to hit back, describing their fights as children. When Harry refused, the future king left, before returning later “looking regretful, and apologized.” Harry said he sustained visible injuries on his back.
