Prince Harry saw a “red haze” in William during the alleged attack on brother | Prince HarryThank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!
Prince Harry said he saw the “red mist” in his brother, Prince Williamwhen his older brother allegedly assaulted him during a confrontation about the younger duke’s relationship with Meghan Markle.
In a newly released clip from an upcoming ITV interview with Harry, the Duke of Sussex said his brother William was so distraught during the 2019 incident that he saw “the red mist in him”.
“He wanted me to hit him back, but I chose not to,” he says of his brother, who he previously claimed in his book to have physically assaulted him — as he was first reported by the Guardian.
The revelations in the book have made the front pages of almost every national newspaper in the UK and are likely to reduce the possibility of a reconciliation between the Sussexes and the rest of the British royal family.
In the clip, released early on Friday morning, Harry tells interviewer Tom Bradby: “What was different here was the level of frustration and I’m talking about the red fog that I had for so many years and I saw that red fog in him.”
The Duke first told of the confrontation in his autobiography Spare – an extract of which was reported by the Guardian on Thursday. The book claims the Prince of Wales grabbed Harry by the collar and knocked him to the floor, ripping his collar and breaking a dog bowl under his back.
The Duke has also said he wants to reconcile with his family – something he says cannot happen without “some responsibility”.
“I want reconciliation,” he says, “but first there has to be some accountability.”
In a clip from another upcoming interview, Harry admits he was “probably a bigot” before his relationship with Markle.
In a new teaser for a CBS News interview set to air this Sunday, Harry tells interviewer Anderson Cooper that he was “incredibly naive” about how the British media would treat his relationship with the American actor.
The “race element” of the couple’s relationship was “right jumped on” by the British press, he told the programme, adding that he had no idea how “fanatic” the UK media was until his wife and their relationship were thrust into the light on the spotlights.
“What Meghan had to go through was somewhat similar to what Kate and Camilla went through – very different circumstances,” the Duke says in the 30-second clip released on Thursday. “But then you add the racial element, which was what the press – (the) British press jumped right on.
“I went into it incredibly naive. I had no idea the British press was so fanatical. Heck, I was probably a bigot before the Meghan relationship.
Cooper responds by asking the Duke: “Do you think you were bigoted before the relationship with Meghan?”
Harry replies, “I don’t know. That said, I didn’t see what I see now.
Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace declined to comment.
Elsewhere in the Brady interview clip, Harry addresses the drug use detailed in the book Spare. Bradby tells the Duke, “There’s a lot of drugs (in the book). Marijuana, magic mushrooms, cocaine. I mean, it’s going to surprise people.
The Duke seems to agree and says it’s “important to acknowledge”.
The show, called Harry: The Interview, will be broadcast on ITV1 and ITVX at 9pm on January 8.
