Prince Harry has revealed that Charles launched a futile attempt to stop his two sons from arguing after Prince Philip’s funeral at Windsor Castle in April 2021.

Charles stood between his children and pleaded with them to end their feud according to a leaked extract of his new autobiography.

Prince Harry writes that Charles looked up at his boys' “flushed faces” and requested them to stop.

“Please, boys,” Harry quotes Charles as saying, before adding: “Don’t make my final years a misery.”

Prince Harry also depicts a furious argument with Prince William, which he claims turned physical.

Describing a furious row with his brother, the Duke of Sussex writes that he gave Prince William a glass of water and said: “Willy, I can’t speak to you when you’re like this.”

Prince Harry continues: “He set down the water, called me another name, then came at me. It all happened so fast. So very 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.”

Following the physical clash, Prince Harry claims Prince William told him to hit back, which he refused to do.

Harry added that his brother “looked regretful and apologised”.

The Duke of Sussex writes that as William left after the altercation, he “turned and called back: ‘You don’t need to tell Meg about this.’

“‘You mean that you attacked me?’

“‘I didn’t attack you, Harold.’”

Prince Harry said he did not initially tell Meghan Markle about the fight.

However, his wife later saw marks on his back, so he explained to her what happened.

Regarding Meghan’s reaction to hearing what unfolded, Harry said she “wasn’t that surprised, and wasn’t all that angry.

“She was terribly sad.”

Spare is set to be released on Tuesday, January 10.
