"Maybe the wine went to my head. Maybe the weeks of battling the press had worn me down. For some reason, when the conversation took an unexpected turn, I became touchy," Prince Harry wrote, Us Weekly reported. "Then angry. Disproportionately, sloppily angry."
"I was also just over-sensitive that night. I thought: ‘Why’s she having a go at me?’ I snapped at her, spoke to her harshly [and] cruelly. As the words left my mouth, I could feel everything in the room come to a stop. The gravy stopped bubbling, the molecules of air stopped orbiting. Even Nina Simone seemed to pause."
The former Suits star reportedly walked out of the room. According to Prince Harry, she disappeared for a "full 15 minutes", and he found her sitting alone in their bedroom.
