Prince William’s heartbreaking brutal demand left Prince Harry isolated and alone

Prince Harry has made a series of revelations about his relationship with his older brother Prince William in his memoir Spare, and the siblings are still estranged after years of feuding

Prince William’s heartbreaking brutal demand left Prince Harry isolated and alone while at school.

The 39-year-old Duke of Sussex made the revelation in his memoir Spare, and claimed that his big brother was so desperate to keep his social circle while at Eton he didn’t even acknowledge Harry. The siblings, who are only two years apart, both attended the prestigious private school as young boys, but it was William who was determined to keep away from his little brother, despite Harry claiming he was struggling at school.

The Duke recalled his tumultuous years at Eton in his explosive memoir, and revealed that he approached his big brother for help after quickly realising that he was “in way, way over my head” at Eton. Harry recalled his teachers would tell him that William was always on hand to help him, but the prince was heartbroken when he finally plucked up the courage to ask his brother for help.

“Willy told me to pretend I didn’t know him,” Harry wrote. “‘You don t know me, Harold. And I don’t know you.’” The distraught young prince was left feeling isolated and alone as he claimed William was desperate to cling onto his friends at Eton without having to deal with his “pestering” younger brother. “For the last two years, he explained, Eton had been his sanctuary. No kid brother tagging along, pestering him with questions, pushing up on his social circle. He was forging his own life, and he wasn’t willing to give that up,” Harry wrote.

The prince had a tough time at Eton, and revealed he was also nicknamed ‘Prince Thicko’ by his schoolmates when a cheating scandal emerged. Harry was accused of cheating in an art project, and while he was later cleared by the school board, the prince claimed Buckingham Palace prevented him from defending himself publicly. “Never complain, never explain,” he wrote in Spare. “I was forced to sit by and say nothing while the papers called me a cheat,” adding “how do you ‘cheat’ on an art project?”

Harry started at Eton in September 1998, and was crowned House Captain of Games and represented the school at rugby, cricket and polo, and left in 2003. While his grades were never made public by Buckingham Palace, they did reveal at the time that he gained 11 GCSEs and two A-Levels, gaining a B in Art and D in Geography.
