The royal says he can write another book
Prince Harry recently revealed that a lot of content was removed from the final version of the book and if he compiles it, he can write a second book. He explained that he removed some information about his father, King Charles III, and his brother, Prince William, “because I don’t think they would ever forgive me” if he included those parts in the memoir.
In his recent interview, he demanded the royal family to “come clean” and apologize to him and his wife, Meghan Markle, for the inhumane treatment when they lived with the royal family.
Prince Harry talked about his fight with Prince William
Among many stories about his life in the palace, his parents, his private life, how he lost his virginity, and even how many people he killed in Afghanistan, the royal also talked about one incident that took place back in 2019. An alleged physical altercation occurred between him and his brother, Prince William, over Meghan Markle. He wrote,
“He broke my necklace by grabbing me by the collar of my shirt … I fell on the dog bowl, it broke under my back and the pieces scratched me.”
He recently told the Daily Telegraph that the whole situation was avoidable and if people listened to the couple when they called out the family, the whole scenario would’ve been different.
