Jimmy Kimmel mocks Harry and William ‘fight’ in hilarious skit


Jimmy Kimmel has mocked William and Harry in a hilarious skit showing two actors dressed as Prince squabbling in a kitchen. 

The sketch pokes fun at an alleged row Harry describes in his bombshell memoir Spare, which leaked in Spain five days before it was due to be released on January 10.   

Harry claimed the stand-up row about Meghan ended with William grabbing him by the collar and throwing him to the floor, shattering a dog bowl. He claims his back was scraped and bruised after the fight at his London home, Nottingham Cottage.

Talk show host Jimmy Kimmel gave his interpretation of the fight in a skit called, ‘Two Princes: A True Story’. Warning: Clip contains explicit language.

The clip zooms in on a calendar dated 2018 with a picture of the Queen as the fight continues.

At the end, the two princes bow to the cameras and laugh as flowers are thrown at them and the curtains close. 

But Twitter users were divided over the clip. While some found it ‘hilarious’, others said they couldn’t see past the ‘sad situation’ of the brothers’ frayed relationship.

Harry also spoke about the tussle with William in an interview with ITV’s Tom Bradby, out on Sunday. 

In a newly released clip from the interview with Harry, the duke said his brother was so frustrated during the incident that he saw ‘red mist in him’.

‘He wanted me to hit him back, but I chose not to,’ he said of his brother. In the clip, released earlier today, Harry told Mr 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 Guardian, which first reported the dispute, said it was able to obtain a copy of the book, despite strong security measures around its release. 

The book has also revealed:

It follows the Sussexes’ six-part Netflix series Harry & Meghan, which was released last month. 

Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace have declined to comment on anything Harry has said on TV or in his book. But an insider told The Times: ‘It is exhausting, it is exasperating, but it is not distracting. It will burn itself out.’ 

The royal also told Bradby he wants to reconcile with his family – something which he says cannot happen without ‘some accountability’.

He adds: ‘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.’

The show, called Harry: The Interview, will be broadcast on ITV1 and ITX at 9pm on Sunday.
