'More advanced than mine': Prince Harry quips about Prince William's hair loss in tell-all memoir 'Spare'
MONTECITO, CALIFORNIA: The release of an excerpt from Prince Harry’s tell-all memoir, ‘Spare', which is slated to hit the stands on Tuesday, January 10, has Prince Harry taking shots below the belt at his brother, Prince William. The Duke of Sussex has discussed his relationship with the Prince of Wales in this book and has also taken a shot at his looks as well. The Duke had written about how he had a bewildering moment when he realized that his brother’s resemblance to their mother Diana, had faded.
According to a report by HollywoodLife, at the funeral of their grandfather Prince Philip in 2021, Prince Harry speaks about ‘really’ looking at his brother and calling out the "familiar scowl" that he believes has become the norm. He also takes shots at his brother’s hair loss, where he says that the future King’s thinning hair was "alarming" and that it was a lot "more advanced than mine," though Harry is only two years younger than William.
“I looked at Willy, really looked at him, perhaps for the first time since we were little,” Harry recalls, while also going as far as to call his brother his "archnemesis." He had also written about a physical altercation with his brother at Nottingham Cottage, which had started with an argument over the Duke’s wife, Meghan Markle. In his book. He says the Prince of Wales called Markle "rude," "abrasive" and "difficult." He then proceeded to knock him down to the floor, leaving Harry with visible injuries on his back.
“It all happened so fast. So very fast,” the Duke had written. “He grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and … 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.”
While Prince Harry got raw and real about his brother, it seems he hasn’t spared his sister-in-law Catherine either. In the book, Harry recalls thinking that he thought "goodbye" to his brother when he married her more than ten years ago. He then went on to also detail the drama that surrounded his own nuptials, where it would seem that the wives had gotten into an argument over Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress. Markle had also allegedly said that the Princess of Wales had "baby brain," and that her hormones were all over the place.
