The Duke of Sussex shared that he had "felt the presence of my mum more so in the last two years than I have in the last 30."
In a new interview, Prince Harry discussed how his late mother, Princess Diana would have felt about the well-publicized falling out with his elder brother Prince William, the heir to the British throne. In his brand-new biography, Spare, Harry, 38, reveals previously undisclosed information about his relationship with his brother William, 40. The title of Harry's memoir is a reference to his birth order as William, the heir to the throne's younger brother. Following William and William's three children, Harry is as of now fifth in line for the throne.
When Michael Strahan of Good Morning America asked what their mother might think about the relationship of the brothers now, The Duke of Sussex responded, "I think she would be sad," according to a new clip of the interview released on Thursday, January 5. He continued, "I think she'd be looking at it long-term to know that there are certain things that we need to go through to be able to heal the relationship." In August 1997, Princess Diana passed following a tragic car crash in Paris, France when Prince Harry was merely 12 years old.
In a recent interview with ITV, while promoting Spare, Harry shared his desire to make amends with both his brother, Prince William, and his father, King Charles III. He also went on to add, "I would like to get my father back. I would like to have my brother back," but that he feels like his family "feel as though it is better to keep us somehow as the villains," and his brother and father "have shown absolutely no willingness to reconcile."
The Duke of Sussex shared with GMA that he "felt the presence of my mum more so in the last two years than I have in the last 30." Harry, who stepped down from his top working position in the royal family in 2020, stated that he thinks that telling "the truth" will help ease the tensions that have existed between him and his royal relatives for a number of years. "Ultimately, what this all comes down to is, I don't think that we can ever have peace with my family unless the truth is out there," Harry said in the interview airing Monday.
In an excerpt from his autobiography shared by The Guardian, Prince Harry claims that William once "knocked me to the floor" after an argument over Meghan Markle in London in 2019.
William reportedly wanted to discuss "the whole rolling catastrophe" of their relationship and issues with the media, according to Harry. However, Harry claims that William was already "piping hot" when he got at Nottingham Cottage, also known as "Nott Cott," where Prince Harry was then residing. Harry describes the altercation and claims William repeated media claims about Meghan by calling her "difficult," "rude," and "abrasive." As the argument progressed, William "grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and... knocked me to the floor," according to Harry, who added that the incident left a visible injury to his back.
