Prince Harry says he saw a “red mist” in Prince William before his brother supposedly attacked him during a row over Meghan Markle.
The Duke of Sussex claims in an excerpt from his new book, Spare, that the Prince of Wales “knocked him to the ground” during a furious row over Meghan, who William is said to have described as “rude” and “difficult”.
Harry told the British broadcaster ITV in a newly-released clip from an upcoming interview that his brother “wanted me to hit him back, but I chose not to”.
“What was different here was the level of frustration, and I talk about the red mist that I had for so many years, and I saw this red mist in him,” Harry told journalist Tom Bradby.
“He wanted me to hit him back, but I chose not to.”
In the previous snippet from Spare, Harry claims William, 40, was already “piping hot” when he arrived at his Kensington Palace home Nottingham Cottage to have a conversation about Meghan, who he branded “difficult”, “rude” and “abrasive”.
When things got heated between the pair, William reportedly told his younger brother he was simply trying to help, to which Harry replied: “Are you serious? Help me? Sorry – is that what you call this? Helping me?”
Harry describes how this comment further angered William, before Harry fled to the kitchen out of fear. His brother followed him, where Harry gave him a glass of water.
“Willy, I can’t speak to you when you’re like this,” Harry claims he told his brother.
He continued in writing: “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.”
Further, Harry writes that William encouraged him to hit back.
Despite the furious argument, Harry said William soon left the cottage “looking regretful, and apologised”.
“[He] turned and called back: ‘You don’t need to tell Meg about this’,” Harry writes.
“‘You mean that you attacked me?’,” he asked his brother, to which William said, “‘I didn’t attack you, Harold.’”
Also in the new ITV clip, Harry says he still wants to rebuild his relationships with William and his father Charles.
“I want reconciliation. But, first, there needs to be some accountability,” he says.
“The truth, supposedly, at the moment, has been there’s only one side of the story, right?
“But, there’s two sides to every story.”
Harry is asked about his admission that he took drugs in his younger years.
“There’s a fair amount of drugs. Marijuana, magic mushrooms, cocaine. I mean, that’s going to surprise people,” Bradby says.
Harry replies that it is “important to acknowledge” his past.
