“It was scary when my brother yelled and yelled at me and my father said things that were simply not true, and my grandmother sat there quietly and almost absorbed it all,” the duke said.
Harry said he was given five options, from “all in, no change” to “all out”, and he chose option three – “eat half, withdraw half”. “.

Harry also told how the letter he wrote to Charles about him and Meghan moving to Canada to work as royals was leaked to the press.
“Obviously the organization revealed the fact that we were going back to Canada,” he said.

“I was like ‘Well, our story, our lives, really got taken from below us’.”
