Prince William 'burning with anger' over Harry's Spare memoir as Duke of Sussex 'written out' of King Charles' coronation - expert

Prince William is "burning with anger" after Spare, the much-awaited memoir of his brother Harry, went on sale in Spain this week, a royal expert says.

Harry's memoir revealed details about his relationship with Prince William, their father King Charles and other members of the UK royal family that had never previously been published.

In the book, Prince Harry said William knocked him to the floor during a 2019 argument at his London home over his US wife Meghan. Prince William called Meghan "difficult", "rude" and "abrasive", Harry wrote.

The latest revelations from Prince Harry came after the release of his Netflix docuseries last month, in which he and his wife Meghan had already delivered a swathe of accusations against what they portrayed as a tone-deaf institution. 

Roya Nikkhah, the royal editor of the UK's Sunday Times newspaper, claimed Prince William was "burning with anger" over his brother's revelations but "refuses" to react to them.

"I can also reveal that Prince Harry has been written out of the script for the coronation, with no official role in the service if he attends," she wrote on Twitter.

But friends of the royal family "fully expect" Prince Harry to be at the coronation, Nikkhah added in her Times report, despite the Duke of Sussex declining to say whether he would attend in a separate TV interview.  

Nikkhah's report came as The Telegraph, citing royal sources, said King Charles wasn't giving up on repairing his relationship with Prince Harry.
