Prince William's nickname revealed amid bitter feud with brother Harry which exploded into 'attack' | The Sun

January 5, 2023

PRINCE Harry has revealed the nicknames he uses with Prince William in a leaked passage of his memoir where he claimed he was physically attacked by his brother.

The Duke of Sussex has sensationally claimed the Prince of Wales "knocked him to the floor" during an argument about Meghan Markle, in his upcoming book Spare.


Harry alleges William "grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and … knocked me to the floor" in an extract of the book reported by the Guardian.

The duke, 38, claims he was left with a visible injury to his back following the argument in 2019 at Nottingham Cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace, where he was living at the time.

And while describing the incident, Harry revealed the pet names he and William use for each other.

The Prince of Wales calls Harry “Harold” while the duke calls William “Willy”.

Harry says William was already "piping hot" when he arrived wanting to talk about their deteriorating relationship.

According to Harry, it turned into a shouting match as William complained about his wife Meghan, calling her "rude" and "abrasive". William insisted he was trying to help.

The Duke of Sussex responded: "Are you serious? Help me? Sorry – is that what you call this? Helping me?”

Harry claims he then poured William a glass of water and said: "Willy, I can’t speak to you when you’re like this."

He then says his brother called him "another name" and then "came at me".

Harry claims: "It all happened so 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.”

He says William told him to hit him back but he refused, and so his brother left "looking regretful, and apologised".

William then told his brother not to tell Meghan about the confrontation, according to Harry.

Harry says he replied: "You mean that you attacked me?", to which he claims William responded: "I didn't attack you, Harold."

The extract of Harry's book has been published by the Guardian. It is unclear how they obtained an early copy.
