Jimmy Kimmel mocks Harry and William's 'fight' in hilarious skit

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

The sketch pokes fun at an alleged fight Harry describes in his bombastic memoir Spare, which was leaked in Spain five days before it was released on Jan. 10.

Harry claimed the fight over Meghan ended with William grabbing him by the collar and throwing him to the ground, breaking 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.

“I fell into the dog bowl and it cracked on my back, the pieces cutting me,” he continues as William spins the necklace and the dog bowl shatters.

The actors playing the Duke of Sussex and Prince of Wales are dressed as pop legend Prince in velvet robes and purple feather boa as they re-enact excerpts from the memoir.

‘Prince William’ shakes his hair dramatically as the fight breaks out, calling Harry a ‘w***er’.

The clip zooms in on a calendar dated 2018 with a photo 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’ strained relationship.

Some Twitter users found the clip “hilarious,” but others said they couldn’t see past the “sad situation” of the brothers’ frayed relationship.

Harry also spoke about the rift with William in an interview with ITV’s Tom Bradby 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 haze 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 haze I’ve had for so many years, and I saw this red haze in him.’

The Guardian, which first reported on the dispute, said it had managed to obtain a copy of the book despite tight security measures surrounding its release.

The book also revealed:

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

Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace declined to comment on anything Harry has said on TV or in his book. But a source told The Times: ‘It’s exhausting, it’s exasperating, but it’s not a distraction. It will burn itself.’

The royals have also told Bradby they want to reconcile with his family – something he says cannot happen without “some responsibility”.

He adds: ‘The truth, supposedly, at the moment, is there’s only one side of the story, right? But, there are two sides to every story.’

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