Kate and William defended as down to earth as celeb neighbour posts trick or treating pic

Kate Middleton and Prince William have been defended as "down to earth" after Prince Harry's claims that he was physically attacked by the Prince of Wales during a row over his wife Meghan Markle, 41.

According to an extract of Harry's new book obtained by The Guardian, William, 40, is alleged to have called Meghan "difficult, "rude" and "abrasive" during a confrontation between the two brothers at the Duke’s Nottingham Cottage home in 2019.

But now, Kate, 40, and William's celebrity neighbour Jay Rutland, 41, husband of Tamara Ecclestone, 38, has come to the couple's defence by sharing a picture of the Princess of Wales and her children trick or treating.

The snap shows Kate with her children George, Charlotte and Louis peering through the large black gates of Jay and Tamara's home.

Kate is seen standing behind Prince Louis, four, as he is seen grabbing the gates with both fists, while his sister, Charlotte, seven, and brother George, nine, are standing together.

Jay wrote on his Instagram story: "For anyone doubting how down to earth William and Kate are… This is Kate with their kids knocking on our door in London trick-or-treating at Halloween."

While Kate and William and their children live in their Kensington Palace 1A apartment, Jay and Tamara also live in their £70 million home in Kensington.

Jay previously opened up on how great Kate and William are with their children, as he said in a Q&A: "William is warm, engaging and friendly.

"Kate knocked on our door in London with their kids on Halloween. 'Trick or Treating'. Very friendly and down-to-earth."

It comes after William's brother Prince Harry recalled an altercation in an extract from his upcoming memoir, Spare.

Harry will sit down with ITV journalist Tom Bradby to go into detail about the claims he has made in his book.

"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," he says in a new clip ahead of the interview. “He wanted me to hit him back, but I chose not to.”

Harry claimed the row ended in William allegedly "knocking" Harry to the ground, where he landed a dog bowl that cracked underneath his back and left him with "scraped and bruises".

In the memoir, Harry also calls William his "arch-nemesis", and Good Morning America's Michael Stahanlt was seen questioning the Duke about his choice of words.

Michael asked Harry in a preview of their interview: "There is a quote in this book where you refer to your brother as your 'beloved brother and arch-nemesis'. Strong words. What do you mean by that?"

He replied: "There has always been this competition between us, weirdly. I think it really plays into or was played by, the 'heir/spare'."

Harry's interview with Good Morning America's Michael Stahanlt is set to be broadcast on Monday, a day before the release of Spare.
