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 a row in Nottingham Cottage revealed by Harry 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 Markle ended with William grabbing him by the collar and throwing him to the floor, shattering a dog bowl. His back was scraped and bruised. 

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

'I landed on the dog's bowl, which cracked under my back, the pieces cutting into me,' it continues as each step is performed with great exaggeration, as William twirls the necklace around and the dog bowl shatters into pieces

Actors playing the Duke of Sussex and Prince of Wales are dressed up as pop legend Prince in velvet robes and purple feather boas as they reenact extracts from the memoir. 

‘Prince William’ shakes his hair dramatically as the fight begins, calling Harry a ‘w***ker’.

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 as some found it ‘hilarious’, but others couldn’t see past the ‘sad situation’ of the deterioration of the relationship between the two brothers.

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 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 said of his brother. In the clip released early today, Harry said to his friend 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, due to be published on January 10, despite strong security measures around its release. 

The book has also revealed:

The Duke of Sussex has spoken out again over the alleged confrontation between himself and his brother, the Prince of Wales, in an interview with ITV's Tom Brady

It follows the Sussexes six-part Netflix docu-series ‘Harry and 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’.

‘I want reconciliation,’ he says, ‘but, first, there needs to be some accountability’. The duke also said: ‘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.
