Former Newsnight presenter Emily Maitlis, 52, has confessed she is “immensely here for” Prince William, 40, over one thing Prince Harry, 38, accused him of in his new book, Spare. The younger brother has been making headlines with his explosive memoir, which has given an insight into the royal family that the world has never seen before.

Emily gave her own unusual take on the book, referring to Harry’s accusation that his older brother had defied the seating plan at his wedding.

“I am so here for the line in #Spare where Harry accuses William and Kate of swapping seating cards at the Sussex’s wedding,” the former journalist tweeted.

“And so immensely here for anyone who dares actually do that,” she added in view of her 535,700 Twitter followers.

“Particularly when they are in line to the Throne. Proper respect.”


Emily’s comments come after leaked copies of Prince Harry’s memoir revealed multiple attacks on the Royal family, particularly criticising the actions of Prince William and King Charles.

People took to the comments section to share their thoughts on Emily’s wedding-related post.

“We’ve all wanted to do that though… Especially at the ‘single Pringle’ table of alcohol…” wrote Jo.

Lucinda chimed in: “HAHA – you should have been at my leavers prom. All the girls were subtly swapping the place settings around to sit next to the boys they fancied.”

Carol penned: “Niece’s friend did that at her wedding. I had taken a pre-dinner photo of the tables unbeknownst and she was caught doing it. Not sure it’s been forgiven yet.”

Sandra commented: “My husband’s family members did a bit of that at our wedding. Tried not to care. Still irritated by it.”

While Jim argued: “Bit weird actually. Unless it’s just having a bit of fun?”

“Almost 30 years on I’m still vaguely pissed off with the friends who did just that,” added George.

Prince Harry has fired a number of accusations at his brother in his divisive new book.

In one chapter, he claimed that Prince William knocked him to the floor during a 2019 argument over Harry’s American wife, Meghan Markle.

He also alleges that Prince William and wife Kate Middleton urged him to wear his infamous Nazi fancy dress outfit.

The royal even described losing his virginity to an older woman in extensive detail.
