Prince Harry’s feud with William started after Nazi costume scandal, book claims

Prince Harry’s feud with older brother William began at least 15 years before Megxit — sparked the night the young prince was snapped wearing a Nazi costume, a new book claims.

The then-20-year-old Duke of Sussex was already being nicknamed “Hash Harry” for his drug use when his photo was plastered on UK papers’ front pages in January 2005, with The Sun headlining it, “Harry the Nazi.”

The backlash sparked a festering feud between the two brothers after William completely escaped critique despite playing a key role on selecting the offensive costume, royal historian Robert Lacey has claimed in a new book, “Battle of Brothers,” being serialized in the Daily Mail.

“Harry chose his costume in conjunction with his elder brother,” Lacey wrote of “the future King William V” who “laughed all the way back to Highgrove with the younger sibling he was supposed to be mentoring.”

“The young prince began re-evaluating his elder brother’s involvement and the unfairness of William’s subsequent emergence smelling of roses.

“It made Harry feel resentful and even alienated,” Lacey wrote, claiming William was the one who would “coax” Harry into his “errant and self-destructive ways.”
