Prince William and Prince Harry rift exposed in new book excerpt


LONDON – Prince William infuriated Prince Harry when he told his younger brother he had to act slowly in his relationship with former Meghan Markle, fearing he would be ‘blinded by lust’, new book says on the Windsors. The second installment of a serialized version of the book “Finding Freedom”, which appeared in the Sunday Times, claimed that Harry was irritated by what he perceived to be William’s snobbish tone in a discussion of the American actress when they were dating. together. Royal journalists Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand wrote that Harry didn’t like William’s advice to “take as long as needed to get to know this girl”.

The authors quote a source close to William as saying that he didn’t want Harry to be “blinded by lust”. The authors wrote that Harry “didn’t feel like he needed treatment anymore,” and took it the wrong way.

“In those last two words, ‘that girl,’ Harry heard the tone of snobbery that was anathema to his approach to the world,” the excerpt said, noting that Harry spent 10 years in and out of the military. of the royal bubble.

“Also, to take Meghan out of the equation, Harry was tired of the momentum that had developed between him and his older brother,” the authors added.

Announcing the publication of the book, Harper Collins UK said the book by Scobie, royal editor of Harper’s Bazaar and Durand, royal correspondent for Elle magazine, would aim to capture “the real Harry and Meghan”. The publisher said the authors had received “one-stop access” and cooperation from those closest to the couple.

Ahead of the book’s release, Harry and Meghan released a statement denying their involvement in the publication.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to ‘Finding Freedom’,” he said. “This book is based on the authors’ own experiences as members of the Royal Press and their own independent reporting. ”

The book described how the rest of the family and the royal household were also unsure of what to think of Meghan. A high ranking courtier reportedly told a colleague, “There is just something about her that I don’t trust. Another called her “Harry’s showgirl.”

The snippet is even harsher on the Duchess of Cambridge, suggesting that she barely rolled out the red carpet for Meghan, despite the similarity of the challenges the two would face.

“While it’s not necessarily her responsibility, Kate hasn’t done much to bridge the gap. She was fiercely loyal to her husband and his family, ”the authors wrote. “Once Harry and Meghan got married, the rift between the brothers widened.

“William and Kate’s feelings were evident in the Sussexes that summer and beyond. Of all the friends and family that Harry and Meghan welcomed to their home in Oxfordshire between May 2018 and March 2019, the Cambridges have not surrendered, ”the excerpt read.

The book excerpts focused on the months of palace intrigue surrounding the decision to step down from senior royal duties. The couple surprised the royal household in January by going public with their plans to become more independent.

The couple wanted to become part-time royals, but the idea collapsed during discussions with the family. In January, the Queen explained how the couple would step down from royal duties in March, at least for a while, but still remain a member of the royal family.

Harry is sixth in line for the throne, behind his father, Prince Charles, brother William, and the three young children of William, George, Charlotte and Louis.

The couple moved to North America with their 14-month-old son Archie.
