I honestly enjoy Us Weekly’s royal coverage these days because I think they’re mostly guessing, but the guesses are really funny and they feel pretty truthy. In that, I can totally imagine Kensington Palace issuing talking points about how Prince William is “really struggling to hold back” in the wake of the Oprah Interview, and William is desperate, keen and incandescent to “get his side out there.” Nevermind that William’s side has been out there for years, mostly at the expense of Meghan and Harry. Us Weekly now says – without any hint of irony – that William has been “left reeling” by the fact that Harry spilled some tea to Gayle King and Gayle then spilled said tea on national television.
Prince William isn’t happy that Prince Harry shared details of their private conversation with Gayle King, a source reveals exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly.
“William was left reeling. He says it was a cheap shot to leak details of their private call and that he twisted the truth,” the source tells Us, adding that the 38-year-old prince “now feels uncomfortable” talking to Harry, 36, on the phone. “He’s putting himself at risk of the same thing happening again.”
King, 66, revealed on CBS This Morning on March 16 that the brothers had been in touch after Harry and Meghan Markle’s bombshell interview earlier that month.
“Harry has talked to his brother and he has talked to his father, too,” the broadcast journalist said, referring to Prince Charles. “The word I was given was that those conversations were not productive, but they are glad they at least started a conversation.”
According to the source, William and members of the royal family are having a hard time moving on from the claims made in the explosive tell-all, which included the Duke and Duchess of Sussex alleging Meghan, 39, was denied help for her mental health struggles and accusations that a family member questioned how dark their son Archie’s skin would be before he was born.
“The problem with Harry is that he’s hooked on being right and regardless of saying he wants to move on from this, he won’t back down until he gets some form of apology from his family,” the insider says.

First of all, as many have pointed out, Gayle didn’t actually break the story of William and Charles calling Harry after the interview. Chuck and Baldingham leaked that sh-t already to the Times of London and the Daily Mail. Harry just confirmed it and added the update of “the calls were not productive.” And that’s what pisses off William and Charles – the fact that if Harry wants to, he’ll call up one of his allies in the American media and spill the tea on the record, as a named source. And Willileaks getting mad about someone else leaking is pretty rich. Hypocrisy, thy name is Baldemort.
As for the last quote – “The problem with Harry is that he’s hooked on being right and regardless of saying he wants to move on from this, he won’t back down until he gets some form of apology from his family” – wow, that’s a lot to unpack. What does “hooked on being right” look like? Is Harry saying “you guys actually said this sh-t and here are the receipts”? And the Windsors absolutely need to apologize. Too bad they won’t.
