Prince William did not want to be blamed for the highly scandalous Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's exit.
During one of the final meetings with Harry before he left for America, William told his brother how he was hurt about papers blaming him for Megxit.
Detailing the conversation, Harry pens in memoir 'Spare': "The press was a big part of why we’d come to this crisis—their business model demanded that we be in constant conflict—but they weren’t the only culprits.
