Prince Harry and Prince William’s mutual friends are reportedly less than thrilled about his revelations in Spare, and are considering speaking out.
The Times reports that Harry’s “disloyalty” has “staggered lifelong friends of the brothers” who have known about their altercation in the kitchen of Nottingham Cottage for a while. But apparently “nobody thought Harry would go there” because of how much “sh*t” mutual friends have on him.
“I don’t know how you can do that to your brother, even if you don’t like or get on with him any more,” one friend tells the outlet. “William was always there to pick up the pieces for Harry, he was his mum [after Diana]. There’s so much stuff over the years that Harry has rung friends up about and said, ‘throw away that photo, promise you won’t speak about this’. You could have a f***ing field day with sh*t on Harry. So could William, who (in comparison) is as clean as a whistle. I can’t believe he’d stoop so low. It’s outrageously disloyal.”
Another friend says Harry’s book revelations are “strategically not clever,” adding that “Harry is good at getting his narrative out there but we know so much, we’ve cleaned up so many messes over the years, there is so much we could say.”
The Times reports that “several” friends who have remained loyal are considering going on the record to “drop counter-bombshells” with one saying “loyalty works both ways.”
