Prince Harry & Prince William's Rift Featured a 'Bitter Explosion' - Find Out Why

Prince Harry was reportedly not happy when Prince William suggested he was moving too fast with his now wife Meghan Markle.

An excerpt from the new book, “Battle of Brothers: William & Harry – The Inside Story of a Family in Tumult,” written by veteran historian Robert Lacey, described what happened between the brothers.

Apparently, when Prince William first approached his brother about his relationship, he was met with “a brusque and offended pushback. Then, the older prince turned to his uncle Charles Spencer for help.”

Then, Prince William decided to get their uncle, Princess Diana‘s brother involved.

“From time to time Diana‘s younger brother had played something of an honorary godfather to both boys in the years since the death of their mother, and their uncle agreed with William to see what he could do,” the book reads (via Daily Mail). “The result of the Spencer intervention was an even more bitter explosion. Once again Harry refused to slow down.”

Prince Harry “didn’t blame his uncle. He understood why Diana‘s brother should want to help. Yet he was furious with his elder brother for dragging other family members into the row,” but “anger and mistrust – that distance – has lasted to the present day.”

Find out when we first learned there was a feud between the royal brothers. Prince Harry was once directly asked to address the rumors.
