A royal expert claims that Prince William recognizes Prince Harry had a more difficult upbringing than him.
Amid the ongoing royal feud, the expert stated that William is aware that certain perks “weren’t available” to his younger brother.
Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, decided to step down from royal duties in 2020.
Since then, the Duke of Sussex has been taking potshots at his family through a series of claims and charges, expressing his dissatisfaction with his time in the Royal Family.
Dr. Tessa Dunlop, a royal specialist, and historian, has spoken out about how William is likely to feel about his brother’s acts but does “recognize” Harry’s pain.
Dr. Dunlop said: “Obviously William feels really hurt and it’ll take him a while to come back into the room, as it were, but if Harry can make it to the Coronation…
“In the end, they are trained as well to put on a brave face and I think that’s what William needs to do.
“He recognizes that his brother was in a place of pain.”
Dr. Dunlop commented about the extra three years that William had his mother present in his childhood, “Harry didn’t benefit from those extra three years with Princess Diana being alive.”
“There have been privileges in William’s life that weren’t available for Harry which made his journey harder to navigate – that’s the truth. To leave your parents at 11 rather than 14 or 15 years, it’s a very different loss.”
Princess Diana died in 1997, at the age of 36, from injuries sustained in a vehicle accident.
Dr. Dunlop also praised William’s wife, saying, “Harry’s not in the number one gig.” William was lucky to meet Kate early on; she can be a really steadying influence and really believes in the institution that William was going to head up.
“If he can see that he is in an advantage position, that will help enable him to be generous.”
She added: “And I’m not saying Harry hasn’t overstepped the line – I’m sure if Harry was my little brother I’d feel pretty upset.
“But it’s about the bigger picture and I hope Kate would help with that.”
She went on to say that Kate “wants to reach out” to her brother-in-law and that the conflict between William and Harry is “something she wants to deal with.”
