Prince William angered Prince Harry by asking their uncle Earl Spencer to stop him rushing into marriage with Meghan Markle, an explosive new book claims.
The Duke of Cambridge, 38, reportedly called in Princess Diana’s brother after “brusque” and “peppery reactions” to his own attempts to talk Harry round.
William is said to have turned to Charles Spencer, 56 — who walked with them and Prince Charles behind Diana’s coffin in 1997 — much to the annoyance of Harry, 36.
The book states: “The result of the Spencer intervention was an even more bitter explosion.
“Once again Harry refused to slow down.
“He didn’t blame his uncle. He understood why Diana’s brother should want to help.
“Yet he was furious with his elder brother for dragging other family members into the row.”
According to Battle Of The Brothers, serialised by the Daily Mail, the tiff led to the brother’s continuing “fraternal fissure”.
The book by historian Robert Lacey also claims Harry went into therapy “at his older brother’s suggestion”.
Cressida Bonas, Harry’s last girlfriend before Meghan, is said to have felt he was “a damaged and self-obsessed young man”.
She allegedly told pals he would “rant and complain about paparazzi lurking where clearly there were none”.
The book reports the tensions between the Cambridges and the Sussexes.
When asked if they ever rowed, Kate and Meghan said nothing, while William said, “Oh yes!”
Harry added the disagreements came “thick and fast”.
