‘One day you’ll be king!’ Prince Harry says to Prince William in an ‘envious’ outburst.
According to Princess Diana’s former protection officer Ken Wharfe, Prince Harry and Prince William had a childhood feud over the line of succession.
Two years ago, the Duke of Sussex and his wife Meghan Markle stepped down as senior working royals.
When Harry and Meghan made a series of allegations against the Royal Family in a two-hour tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, the relationship deteriorated further.
Harry discussed his relationship with William and expressed hope that the two would be able to mend their differences in the future.
“At the moment, the relationship is space,” Harry explained, “and time, hopefully, heals all things.”
“My father and brother are caught in a bind.
They are not allowed to leave, and I pity them.”
“We’ve been through hell together, we have a shared experience, but we were on different paths,” the Duke of Sussex added, referring to their mother Diana’s death in 1997.
During their childhood, the two princes were close.
According to a former Diana staffer, William, who is second in line to the throne, was once involved in a heated argument with his brother over the line of succession.
The two young princes were once squabbling at the back of the car while traveling from London to Gloucester, according to Mr Wharfe, the Princess of Wales’ long-serving protection officer.
“Diana would always take the two boys to High Grove in Gloucester,” Mr Wharfe said in a Channel 5 documentary titled “Prince Harry: The Troubled Prince.”
“On this particular occasion, Diana was driving, I was in the front seat, and William and Harry were in the back.”
“They’d clearly gotten off to a bad start because they were fighting even before we left.”
Mr Wharfe claims that the young princes’ nanny tried to settle the argument in the back of the car.
He then claimed Harry, who was four at the time, had a startling outburst.
“Out of nowhere, Harry said, ‘William, one day you’ll be king, I won’t, it doesn’t matter, so I can do whatever I want,'” Mr Wharfe claimed.
“That remark can be interpreted in two ways.
“It could be interpreted as envy if William is given such a bright future as king.
“But there’s also an element of, ‘I’m free, I’m going to choose my own role in life,'” says the author.
