Royal historian Robert Lacey is speaking out about what instigated the royal split between Prince Harry and Prince William. He updated Battle of Brothers: The Inside Story of a Family in Tumult with added chapters and new material, and in new excerpts in The Times newspaper in the U.K. published on Saturday, he shared details of their feud.
The pair had issues initially over the speed with which Harry and his now-wife Meghan Markle got together, and while they were better by the time of their wedding in May of 2018, just a few months later in October, the situation went downhill. William learned that a senior palace aide was claiming that Meghan bullied them, prompting a “fierce and bitter” argumentleading William to start moves to remove Harry and Meghan from the joint office, or household, they shared.
“William threw Harry out,” a friend tells Lacey.
