Prince Harry has made at least one bombshell claim in his upcoming memoir: that Prince William physically attacked him during a fight about Meghan Markle (whom William called “difficult,” “rude,” and “abrasive”). According to Harry, the fight took place at Nottingham Cottage—a small home on the grounds of Kensington Palace where Harry was living at the time.
Per The Guardian (which got its hands on a copy of Spare), Harry claims that the brothers’ argument got so heated that Harry left to the kitchen, where he gave William a glass of water and said, “Willy, I can’t speak to you when you’re like this.” Harry went on in the book:
“He set down the water, called me another name, then came at me," Harry recalled. "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.”
Prince Harry and Meghan had previously shared photos of this exact kitchen during their Netflix docuseries Meghan & Harry while speaking about the early days of their relationship. We even can see the exact location of the dog bowl in one shot of the space included in the doc:
Meanwhile, here’s a photo of the living room:
And of the yard behind the cottage itself:
Wild to think that Prince William allegedly strolled into this house and physically pushed Harry onto that floor. Although it should be noted that William hasn’t told his side of the story as of yet because thus far, the Palace has remained quiet about Harry’s memoir. We’ll see how long that lasts. 👀
