Battle of Brothers: William, Harry, and the Inside Story of a Troubled Family, a book by British historian Robert Lacey, has revealed the shocking ‘alleged’ revelation that Prince William “threw [Prince] Harry out” and split households because of Meghan Markle’s bullying allegations made by the Cambridges and the Sussexes’ former communiqu, as revealed by a source friendly with The Duke of Sussex.
According to Robert, William “went ballistic” when he learned of the “dossier of distress” compiled by Jason against Meghan. The Duke of Cambridge was “astonished and horrified” by what he heard and “instantly furious.” “William believed Meghan was following a plan — ‘agenda’ was the word he used to his friend,” Lacey continued, adding, “Meghan was undermining some precious principles of the monarchy, if she really was treating her staff in this way, and William was upset that she seemed to be stealing his beloved brother away.”
When William learned of the allegations against Markle, he called Harry, who “flared up in furious defence of his wife.” As his “elder brother persisted,” Harry hung up on him angrily, prompting William to go and speak to his younger brother “personally.” The royal expert claims that “The prince was shocked by what he had just learned about Meghan’s alleged behavior, and he was eager to hear what Harry had to say. The fight between the brothers was ferocious and bitter.”
Because William “wanted to be separated from Meghan on a daily basis,” he “wanted to be separated from his brother as well.” According to another claim, Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, “had been wary of her [Meghan] from the start.” William reportedly felt his previous reservations about his sister-in-law, which he had before she and Harry married, were “unhappily linked” with the bullying allegations. While it was widely assumed that Harry was the one who initiated the separation of the two households, Robert wrote in his book, “However, the opposite was true. The decisive move was made by William.” Kensington Palace refused to comment on the book’s contentious claims to The Sun.
For the uninitiated, Jason sent an official letter in October 2018 accusing Meghan of bullying palace staff, which was categorically denied by Markle and Harry’s spokesperson. The Duchess of Sussex, on the other hand, claimed to be a victim of bullying herself.
Meanwhile, William and Harry will reunite for the unveiling of Princess Diana’s statue as a tribute to their late mother on July 1, which would have been The Princess of Wales’ 60th birthday, at the Sunken Garden in Kensington Palace, UK. This will be the siblings’ first reunion since the funeral of their grandfather, Prince Philip, in April.
