Prince Harry said it was “terrifying” to have his brother Prince William “scream and shout” at him during a meeting about the Sussexes splitting from the Royal family.
In the final installment of Harry and Duchess Meghan’s Netflix docuseries, he detailed asking for a “half in, half out” agreement, where he and his wife would have their own jobs but still do some work in support of the Queen.
However, during a family meeting to discuss their options, “it became very clear very quickly that goal was not up for discussion or debate.”
While Harry insisted he never “blindsided” his grandmother with a shock announcement he and Meghan were going to leave the royals and move to Canada, he insisted that what followed felt like an attack on him.
“It was terrifying to have my brother scream and shout at me, and my father saying things that just simply weren’t true, and my grandmother quietly sit there and sort of take it all in,” he said in the show.
Throughout the latest episodes Harry heavily hinted that his brother persistly tormented the couple, and ended up “bullying us out of the family.”
Harry recalled how on the same day as the “Sandringham Summit” — where the alleged screaming took place — “a story came out saying that part of the reason why Meghan and I were leaving was because William had bullied us out.”
“Once I got in the car after the meeting, I was told about a joint statement that have been put up in my name and my brother’s name squashing the story about him bullying us out of the family.”
“I couldn’t believe it. No one had asked me permission to put my name to a statement like that,” he seethed, strongly suggesting he would not have made such a denial.
He then rang Meghan — who was in Canada at the time and burst into “floods of tears” while on the phone.
“Within four hours, they were happy to lie to protect my brother — and yet for three years they were never willing to tell the truth to protect us,” Harry complained.
The young prince said “the saddest part” of the whole scandal “was this wedge that it created between myself and my brother.”
