- Mused that William was King material, before adding: ‘Harry’s never could be’
Tamara Ecclestone’s husband Jay Rutland has leapt to the defence of his neighbours Prince William and Kate – and attacked Harry for ‘airing his family’s dirty laundry’.
He slated the content of the memoir – which was embarrassingly released five days earlier than it should have been in Spain.
And, adding to a wave of criticism of the book in recent days, he claimed it was filled with bitterness in a brutal take-down of the publication.

Writing online, Rutland mused that William was King material, before adding: ‘Harry’s childish jealousy proves he never could be.’
He added later: ‘Notable that Harry still hasn’t named the Royal racist.
‘Is that because…A) He’s enjoying letting them be tarred with the same sh**** brush.
‘B) It was all BS, C) He’s saving it for the next money making opportunity. My vote is C, with a little dash of A in the meantime.’
Harry has alleged in his book that there was a fight between him and the Prince of Wales after he called Meghan Markle ‘difficult’, ‘rude’ and ‘abrasive’.
Harry’s book also reveals that William warned him against proposing.
Harry claimed the stand-up row in Nottingham Cottage – his Kensington Palace flat – ended with William grabbing him by the collar and throwing him to the floor, shattering a dog bowl.
His back was scraped and bruised, he said. In a newly released clip from ITV’s forthcoming interview with Harry, the duke said his brother was so frustrated during the incident, which reportedly took place in 2019, he saw ‘red mist in him’.

‘He wanted me to hit him back, but I chose not to,’ he says of his brother. In the clip released early today, Harry tells his friend Tom Bradby: ‘What was different here was the level of frustration, and I talk about the red mist that I had for so many years, and I saw this red mist in him.’
The short clip from the ITV interview, which is due to be broadcast on Sunday, also had Harry addressing the drug use detailed in Spare.
Mr Bradby tells the duke: ‘There’s a fair amount of drugs [in the book].
‘Marijuana, magic mushrooms, cocaine. I mean, that’s going to surprise people.’
The duke appears to agree and says it was ‘important to acknowledge’.
The royal also states he wants to reconcile with his family – something which he says cannot happen without ‘some accountability’.
‘I want reconciliation,’ he says, ‘but, first, there needs to be some accountability’.
The duke also states: ‘The truth, supposedly, at the moment, has been there’s only one side of the story, right?
‘But, there’s two sides to every story.’
It comes after Harry reportedly alleged in his book William had called his American wife Meghan ‘difficult’, ‘rude’ and ‘abrasive’ – comments which the younger brother said parroted ‘the Press narrative’ about his wife.
