Remember when Meghan Markle guest edited an entire issue of Vogue UK called “Forces for Change” and it was all extremely cool and impressive and there was literally nothing to complain about? Yeah, about that.
Apparently Prince William wasn’t on board—at least according to royal historian Robert Lacey in his new book Battle of the Brothers, which, to be honest, literally refuses to stop spilling tea. This thing is basically a faucet.
Anyway, according to the book (via The Mirror), some of the royals weren’t pleased that content in the “Forces for Change” issue wasn’t impartial, and William and Harry had a “showdown” when they talked about it.

We are proud to announce that Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Sussex is the Guest Editor for the September issue of @BritishVogue. For the past seven months, The Duchess has curated the content with British Vogue's Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful to create an issue that highlights the power of the collective. They have named the issue: “Forces for Change” For the cover, The Duchess chose a diverse selection of women from all walks of life, each driving impact and raising the bar for equality, kindness, justice and open mindedness. The sixteenth space on the cover, a mirror, was included so that when you hold the issue in your hands, you see yourself as part of this collective. The women on the cover include: @AdwoaAboah @AdutAkech @SomaliBoxer @JacindaArdern @TheSineadBurke @Gemma_Chan @LaverneCox @JaneFonda @SalmaHayek @FrankieGoesToHayward @JameelaJamilOfficial @Chimamanda_Adichie @YaraShahidi @GretaThunberg @CTurlington We are excited to announce that within the issue you’ll find: an exclusive interview between The Duchess and former First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama, a candid conversation between The Duke of Sussex and Dr Jane Goodall, inspirational articles written by Brené Brown, Jameela Jamil and many others. Equally, you’ll find grassroots organisations and incredible trailblazers working tirelessly behind the scenes to change the world for the better. • “Guest Editing the September issue of British Vogue has been rewarding, educational and inspiring. To deep dive into this process, working quietly behind the scenes for so many months, I am happy to now be able to share what we have created. A huge thanks to all of the friends who supported me in this endeavour, lending their time and energy to help within these pages and on the cover. Thank you for saying “Yes!” – and to Edward, thank you for this wonderful opportunity.” – The Duchess of Sussex #ForcesForChange
Per The Mirror, Lacey claims that literally no one knows what ~exactly~ went down during this conversation, but that it was “another classic Harry explosion, followed by a further, even deeper rift.” Like to the point where Harry and Meghan didn’t join the royals in Balmoral that summer. Yikes.
As a reminder, Prince Harry is set to be visiting the royal family over the holidays—so hopefully he can put some of this lingering drama to bed. More details here:
