Since the Duke of Sussex and his wife, Meghan Markle, announced their retirement from public life as royalty, the siblings have had several disagreements.
Now, there is a new controversy about the future king of England, which took place on the day of Queen Elizabeth’s death.
Queen Elizabeth died at the age of 96 at Balmoral Castle on September 8, 2022.
Prince Harry was in England at the time, and when he learned of his grandmother’s deteriorating health, he rushed to Scotland, where a new conflict with his brother arose.
What happened between William and Harry on the day Queen Elizabeth died?
According to the new book titled “Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy’s Fight for Survival,” written by Omid Scobie, Prince William was singled out for “not answering” his brother Harry’s text messages in the hours leading up to Queen Elizabeth II’s death.
As the monarch’s condition deteriorated, her closest family gathered at Balmoral Castle, where she was staying, to be with her in her final moments.
William traveled from London to Aberdeen with his aunt and uncle, Princes Andrew and Edward, and his aunt Sophie, leaving out Prince Harry, who eventually had to travel alone on a private flight.
The Duke of Sussex had no choice but to charter a jet, for which he is estimated to have paid nearly $50,000, to get to Scotland, but he did not make it and learned that the Queen had died when Buckingham Palace broke the news while he was on the flight.
A source close to the book’s author says Harry was devastated because he had such a strong bond with his grandmother.
He would have liked to have been told about her death instead of finding out at the same time as the rest of the world.
The Duke of Sussex revealed some details of his conflict with William in his book, which was exacerbated when William criticized his choice of partner.
According to Harry, William insulted him and Meghan, calling her “rude and complicated,” and they came to blows in an argument that ended with Harry on the floor.
