Harry and William's bombshell dispute made headlines Wednesday, January 4, after excerpts from the former's book leaked, detailing the demise of the brothers' relationship.

In the shocking excerpt, Harry claimed the heir called Meghan "difficult", "rude" and "abrasive," during an argument in Nottingham Cottage — William requested that they meet there.

"It all happened so fast. So very fast. He grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and he knocked me to the floor," Harry penned. "I landed on the dog’s bowl, which cracked under my back, the pieces cutting into me. I lay there for a moment, dazed, then got to my feet and told him to get out."

Aside from dragging William's name through the mud, Harry has also aired out his dirty laundry with his dad, King Charles III, Queen Consort Camilla and Kate Middleton.

From claiming His Majesty took pleasure in joking that he was not Harry's father — Princess Diana had an affair with Major James Hewitt, though it began after her youngest was born — to outing William and Kate for allegedly encouraging him to wear the Nazi costume in 2005 and laughing about it, Harry is spilling the tea on his life behind palace walls.

Despite bashing the royals, Harry admitted during his ITV interview that he does hope to reconcile with his family members.

But, there [are] two sides to every story."
