Recalling how the confrontation between him and Prince William occurred, Prince Harry said, as per excerpts shared in The Guardian that William called Meghan Markle “difficult”, “rude” and “abrasive”. Prince Harry believes that it was a “parrot[ing of] the press narrative” about Meghan Markle. But the fight between the two brothers escalated and then Prince William “grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and … knocked me to the floor”, Prince Harry recounts.

“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,” Prince Harry writes in the memoir as per The Guardian.
