Having scored an early copy of Prince Harry’s “Spare” (Random House, 1.10), The Guardian‘s Martin Pengelly has posted a tale about Harry’s elder brother, Prince William, knocking him to the floor during verbal fisticuffs over Harry’s marriage to Meghan Markle.

Brothers are allowed to slap each other around if they want to, and nobody should have anything to say about it. It’s between them.

I should add, however, that while I’ve never had any feelings or opinions about William up until now, reading that he bashed chickenshit Harry fills me with (I’m perfectly serious) newfound respect.

Harry has written that following the slapdown, his first telephone call was to his therapist. What a pathetic candy-ass! His therapist!
