Harry ‘removed startling Spare content for William’ | Royal | News

Prince Harry has been brutally candid about his feelings towards the Royal Family – including his strained relationships with Prince William and King Charles.

His memoir ‘Spare’, his Oprah TV interview, and the Netflix series featuring him and Meghan have all seen the Duke of Sussex openly discuss private family moments. However, Harry insists he hasn’t revealed everything.

Following the release of ‘Spare’ in January 2023, he told the Telegraph that he had actually left out several stories about his father and brother.

And he said he did so because he feared they would never forgive him if he broke his silence on these matters.

The Duke of Sussex said: “It could have been two books, put it that way. And the hard bit was taking things out.

“There are some things that have happened, especially between me and my brother, and to some extent between me and my father, that I just don’t want the world to know. Because I don’t think they would ever forgive me.”

While Harry may have omitted certain tales, the ones he did share were not easy for his family to swallow. They further widened the gap between the Sussexes and the rest of the royals – to the point where experts believe Prince William has no desire to reconcile with his brother.

Royal expert Tom Quinn told  The Mirror. “Harry’s visit to the UK has done nothing to repair royal relations Harry has been very publicly snubbed by his father and brother.  William] says nothing. It is as if Harry no longer exists. There’s been no obvious criticism from either side, but the silence from William is deafening.”

According to an insider who spoke to The Times in early May during Harry’s UK visit, King Charles. was “wary” of meeting his youngest son due to the “publicity circus” surrounding their relationship.

“It’s all very sad. While it is true that the King is understandably wary about meeting with Harry, given the publicity circus that seems to surround all such visits, he did of course agree to see his son at the most vulnerable moment of his illness [in February], and at very short notice.”

The insider added: “While he was hardly going to roll out the red carpet the moment this Invictus trip was announced, with doctors advising him to focus on his treatment and recovery, the idea that he refused to find space in his diary … well, let’s say recollections may vary once again.”

Friends of the  King have emphasised that, as far as they are aware, Harry did not request to see his father nor invite him to his service at St Paul’s Cathedral to celebrate the Invictus anniversary.

The last time Harry saw his dad – and only time since his coronation last year – was in early February for a brief meeting after Charles announced his cancer diagnosis.
