Prince William ‘seething and devastated’ by Harry’s book claims
Prince William is both furious and lost amid the barrage of allegations that have emerged from Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir, Spare.
Royal expert Katie Nicholl tells Page Six that, according to her sources, “William is privately seething and devastated by what Harry has done. And I just can’t forgive Harry for the things he wrote.”
In the eagerly awaited memoir, the California-based queen writes that his brother physically assaulted her while fighting over Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle.

“Everything happened so fast. So very soon. “He grabbed me by the collar, tearing my necklace and knocked me to the floor,” writes the 38-year-old.
“I sat in the dog bowl, which cracked under my back, cutting me to pieces. I lay there for a moment, dazed, then stood up and told him to get out.”
Harry claimed the attack left him with a visible back injury.

The renegade king further humiliates his brother. He accuses her of being jealous of him coming to the Invictus Games, doesn’t support his relationship with the Suits alum and even takes a swipe at William’s hairline, calling it “alarming.”
Nicholls – author of The New Royals: Queen Elizabeth’s Legacy and the Future of the Crown – says the royals were “preparing for something raw, something explosive” but perhaps weren’t ready for the barrage of attacks that came their way Theirs.

“They are amazed at the level of detail and how far Harry has gone in all this,” added Nicholls.
The royal scribe shares that despite Harry’s desire to patch things up with his father, King Charles III, and his brother, she doesn’t see a reconciliation on the horizon.

“The idea that he wants his father and brother back seems very inconsistent with the way he’s acting and what he’s saying,” Nicholls explained.
“To paint such an unpleasant picture of the royal family and a very unpleasant side of his brother and a careless side of his father…” she continued.
“It just doesn’t seem like the actions of a man trying to reconcile with his estranged family. It really feels like a line has been crossed.”
