When did the feud between the royal brothers Harry and William begin? According to the royal experts’ disclosure on the Channel 5 documentary Prince Harry: The Troubled Prince, it was way back when Prince Harry was four years old. At that time, the siblings were travelling from London to Gloucester during a weekend, and all of a sudden they broke into a quarrel.
Was it all meant to be?
Ken Wharfe, a long-serving protection officer to the royals, however, overheard the row who was left shocked by young Harry’s abrupt attack.
He recalled the incident saying, “Diana would always take the two boys to High Grove in Gloucestershire. On this particular occasion Diana was driving, I was sat in the front, William and Harry in the back. They’d clearly got off to a bad start because they were arguing before we’d even left.”
And then came an unprecedented blast from Harry that Ken explained, “Harry out of nowhere said, ‘William, one day you’ll be king, I won’t, it doesn’t matter therefore I can do what I like’.”
As soon as he uttered such words, the mother was left stunned who asked Harry wherefrom he learned about it.
A pre-decided future
Recently, Richard Kay contemplated about the implication of the particular remark claiming, “You can take that comment two ways. It may indicate envy if you like that William got this great future as king. But also there’s an element of: ‘I’m free I’m going to choose my own role in life’.”
The ruling notion
Meanwhile, journalist Richard Kay reflected, “Prince Charles shared Diana’s concerns about making sure the boys shared things in their early years. But certainly, more senior members of the Royal Family in private were saying: ‘This is nonsense. William is the future. All our efforts must go into educating William’. It was William the Queen would invite for lessons in kingship when he was at Eton and she was at Windsor Castle.” But what owes the favoured attitude within the imperial brood? Was it something more behind the surface? We don’t yet know.
Bearing the preference
Coming to royal biographer Angela Lewin’s mentions, she revealed Diana’s contribution in the matter saying, “He was always less than his brother. The late Queen Mother would always invite Prince William over for tea and talk to him about his future and not invite Prince Harry.” Well, that was not the entire story.
On the other end, Diana’s death allegedly left Harry with more assets. Now, what is your thought on the subject?
