"Do you know who I am!" William shouted in one conversation to Middleton, while denying the affair, according to the author.

"No one tells me what to do. I do what I want.”

Moreover, on April 11, William called it off in a cellphone conversation.

"For the next hour, you heard Wills sputter the reasons he was breaking up with her. ``I don’t want you suffering the way my mother did,`` " he reportedly told her, referring to the way his mother Princess Diana died in a car crash while being chased by paparazzi in 1997.

Having done so, he and his band of bar hopping buddies then showed up at Mahiki for a booze binge to let off the steam .

"As the Rolling Stones classic ``You Can’t Always Get What You Want`` blasted over the sound system, Wills waved his arms in the air and shouted, ``I’m freeeee!`` ``Let’s drink the menu,`` " according to the book.
