In leaked excerpts from the royal’s upcoming memoir Spare, he recalled feeling “energized” about Meghan Markle’s suit against Associated Newspapers Limited after their allegation of “poisonous flowers” at their wedding.
In 2019, Express published a story alleging Markle had put Princess Charlotte at risk by choosing Lily of the Valley as part of her flower crown, which is “potentially poisonous” if ingested by children.
Harry refuted the claim in the memoir, explaining that the common reaction is “discomfort,” and that “very rarely” would such an incident end in death, via Page Six.
He found the claim even more ridiculous as the Duchess of Sussex didn’t even have a say in the choice of flora. The alleged “reckless decision” was done by the “professional florist” hired to make the crowns.
“None of it mattered,” Harry wrote, adding that “the ‘Meghan the Killer’ story was too good to pass up” for the outlet.

Harry writes: "He set down the water, called me another name, then came at me. It all happened so fast. So very fast. He grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and he knocked me to the floor. I landed on the dog's bowl, which cracked under my back, the pieces cutting into me. I lay there for a moment, dazed, then got to my feet and told him to get out."

Harry says in Spare that he was a “17-year-old willing to try almost anything that would upset the established order” when he lost his virginity.
Harry writes: "I suspected he was referring to my recent loss of virginity, a humiliating episode with an older woman who liked macho horses and who treated me like a young stallion. I mounted her quickly, after which she spanked my ass and sent me away. One of my many mistakes was letting it happen in a field, just behind a very busy pub. No doubt someone had seen us."

Prince Harry revealed that he once spoke “cruelly” to his wife Meghan Markle after a disagreement after which he sought therapy.
Harry writes, “Maybe the wine went to my head. Maybe the weeks of battling the press had worn me down. For some reason, when the conversation took an unexpected turn, I became touchy. Then angry. Disproportionately, sloppily angry. I was also just over-sensitive that night. I thought: ‘Why’s she having a go at me?’ I snapped at her, spoke to her harshly [and] cruelly.”
