William ‘screamed and shouted at me’, tells terrified Prince Harry

The Duke of Sussex said it was “terrifying” that his brother, now Britain’s Prince of Wales, yelled at him at the Sandringham summit during the Megxit crisis.

In the final volume of the Sussexes’ controversial Netflix documentary, Harry also said that on the same day a joint statement was released without his permission on his behalf and on behalf of his brother, in which he denied a story that William forced him out of the royal family would have.

He called the move a “lie to protect my brother” and added: “There was no other option at this point. I said ‘We need to get out of here’,” reports RTE.

Other revelations included Harry saying he had told his father, now king, that he and Meghan were willing to give up their Sussex titles if a move to Canada didn’t work out.

He also described how Meghan “stealing the limelight or doing the job better than the person who is born to do this, that upsets people”, reports RTE.

Harry opened up about what was going on behind the scenes when the Queen called Charles, William and Harry to Sandringham in January 2020 to clarify the Sussexes’ future plans after they released a statement saying they wished to step down as senior royals.

“It was terrifying to have my brother scream and shout at me and my father say things that just simply weren’t true, and my grandmother quietly sit there and sort of take it all in,” the duke said, reports RTE.

Harry said he was given five options ranging from “all in, no change” to “all out”, and he chose option three: “half in, half out”.

A joint statement was released on the day of the meeting in Sandringham, calling a cover story about the brothers’ relationship false, offensive and potentially damaging.

However, Harry says he was not consulted on the statement: “Once I got in the car after the meeting, I was told about a joint statement that had been put out 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. No one had asked me permission to put my name to a statement like that. I rang M and I told her and she burst into floods of tears because 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.”” reports RTE.

Harry also told how a letter he wrote to Charles about him and Meghan moving to Canada to work as royalty was leaked to the press.

“It became clear that the institution had leaked the fact that we were moving back to Canada. And a key piece of that story that made me aware that the contents of the letter between me and my father had been leaked was that we were willing to relinquish our titles. That was a giveaway,” he said, reports RTE.

According to RTE, Meghan then says: “It was already clear to the media that the Palace was not going to protect her. Once that happens then the floodgates open. I realised that I wasn’t just being thrown to the wolves, I was being fed to the wolves.”
