LONDON, KOMPAS.com - In the second installment of the serialized book “Finding Freedom” which appeared in the Sunday Times, more details were uncovered regarding the rift between Britain’s popular princes.
Prince William argues that he did not want his younger brother to be “blindsided by lust”.
The suggestion was perceived as snobbish by the younger prince in which he also staunchly disliked William’s advice of “take as much time as you need to get to know this girl."
The authors quote a source close to William as saying he didn’t want Harry to be “blindsided by lust.” The authors wrote that Harry “no longer felt as though he needed looking after,” and took it badly.
“In those last two words, ‘this girl’, Harry heard the tone of snobbishness that was anathema to his approach to the world,’’ the excerpt said, noting that Harry has spent 10 years in the military and outside the royal bubble.
“Also, to remove Meghan Markle from the equation, Harry was tired of the dynamic that had become established between him and his older brother,’’ the authors added.
In announcing the book's publication, Harper Collins UK said the book by Scobie, royal editor of Harper’s Bazaar and Durand, Elle magazine's royal correspondent, would aim to capture “the real Harry and Meghan."
The publisher said the authors have been given “unique access” and the cooperation of those closest to the couple.
Ahead of the book’s release, Harry and Meghan issued a statement denying taking part in the publication.
