Prince William’s alleged assault on Prince Harry condemned by royal expert

Prince William’s alleged physical assault on brother Prince Harry, as narrated by the Duke of Sussex in his memoir Spare, has been condemned by a royal expert.

In an excerpt from Spare obtained by The Guardian, Prince Harry relates an incident where Prince William reportedly ‘grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and he knocked me to the floor’.

Writing for News AU, royal expert Daniela Elser commented on this and said: “Let’s just pause here so I can spell out what should be obvious – violence is never OK.”

She then added: “Thumping anyone is never, ever acceptable and in this situation, there is a person in the unequivocal right and one in the wrong. There is no grey area when it comes to violence.”

Elser, however, also stated that apart from the Prince William story, Prince Harry’s book doesn’t seem like much of a ‘smoking gun’.

She said: “Beyond all of this, reading the Guardian’s account, I couldn’t help but think, is this it? While the assault claim casts William in a horrible, aggressive light, it is hardly any sort of smoking gun that will rock the monarchy or meaningfully affect public opinion.”
