William responds to Harry claims for first time after fans cheer him and Kate on
The crowds cheered their support for William and Kate just days after Prince Harry made a series of scorching allegations against them.
Well-wishers urged Prince William and Kate to “keep going” as the couple resumed royal duties just two days after Prince Harry’s explosive memoir – with William appearing to respond for the first time to the devastating claims as he replied: “I will.” The Prince and Princess of Wales received a very warm welcome to the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital on Thursday, appearing in public after the Duke accused his brother of physically assaulting him, and Kate of a series of spats with his wife, Meghan.
Among the crowds was patient Sylvia Staniford, 81, who gripped William’s hand tightly and said: “Keep going, keep going. Scousers love you.”
William smiled at her warmly and replied: “Yes, I will.”
Mrs Staniford said afterwards: “Of course, that was a reference to Harry. He knew what I was talking about.”
According to HELLO!, as the couple got out of their car as they arrived, someone was heard asking: “Were you hurt by the comments in Harry’s book, Sir?”

Meghan and Harry losing titles a ‘very real possibility’ as King considers nuclear option
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been warned there is a “very real possibility” they could be stripped of their titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The couple have fuelled speculation about the King reconsidering their positions in light of their repeated attacks on the Royal Family.
However, it was not clear whether the Prince of Wales heard, and he did not reply.
Kensington Palace has declined to comment on the claims in Harry’s book.
The couple were visiting the critical care ward to see the hospital’s new facilities as well as meet with staff, who have been working at the hospital during the busy winter period.
William and Kate thanked them for their service.
The new hospital is state-of-the-art and the biggest of its kind in the country. It provides inpatients with 100 percent single en-suite bedrooms, improving patient experience, safety and enhanced recovery.
The pair greeted royal fans for the first time since the book’s release
After the hospital, the pair headed to the Open Door Charity, which supports young people across Merseyside with their mental health.
On the same day, King Charles similarly carried out his first official engagement since the publication of his son’s book. The King visited the community of Aboyne, close to the late Queen’s Balmoral estate in Aberdeenshire, to tour the Aboyne and Mid Deeside Community Shed and meet local hardship support groups.
King Charles was not the target of as many attacks from Prince Harry in his memoir, Spare. However, one passage claimed that when Harry was born, Charles remarked to Diana: “Wonderful! Now you’ve given me an heir and a spare — my work is done”.
Prince Harry added of the remark: “A joke. Presumably. On the other hand, minutes after delivering this bit of high comedy, Pa was said to have gone off to meet his girlfriend. So. Many a true word spoken in jest.”

Many royal fans stepped out to show their support for the Prince and Princess of Wales
The Prince also said Charles had trouble communicating and being “intimate face-to-face,” so would write letters instead.
The Duke wrote: “On occasion, after a long multi-course dinner, I’d walk upstairs and find a letter on my pillow. The letter would say how proud he was of me for something I’d done or accomplished.
“I’d smile, place it under my pillow, but also wonder why he hadn’t said this moments ago, while seated directly across from me.”
When and where to buy Prince Harry’s book, Spare
Spare by Prince Harry will be released by publishers Penguin Random House on January 10, 2023.
The tell-all memoir, which was ghostwritten by Pulitzer Prize winner J R Moehringer, promises to be packed full of explosive revelations and insight into the Royal Family – and there’s even an audiobook read by the Duke of Sussex himself.
